He doesn't seem to have aimed for success as much as to have earned it, and then, not until after he was fifty. And the challenges kept on coming then, too. So it helps show that one’s life is not linear, and there are often setbacks. That is consoling and encouraging to all of us, in business and in life.
I think business school teachers should require this book in their classrooms, in order to spark discussion about whether students truly believe that by acting ethically they can make money and achieve success. I think we need to foster that dialog in American business today. This book could help with that. I think school counselors could also use this book with students so they begin to grasp that life does present challenges. That is normal. What we do in the face of those challenges is what makes us remarkable.
Highly recommend this book- it's a quick air plane read because it's so well written and will leave you wanting to know more about what's next for Carr.
