Format: Hardcover
Imagine that your rich uncle Seymour tells you that he will not leave you anything in his will but instead, he will pass on to you his life wisdom in the form of a book! Get Smarter is light reading but not fluff. The surprisingly modest Mr. Schulich has been both lucky and smart and he has a billion dollar net worth which proves the value of his opinions.

The best chapter summarizes how Schulich and Lassonde created and expanded Franco Nevada and Euro Nevada. I would recommend the book to any person interested in business.

I also agree with the author, Gladiator is the best movie ever.

This book is great because it's such an easy read. It's not highly technical but is a great introduction to business. I've read close to 50 business books and this one is by far my favourite.

Schulich is a billionaire not by chance. This is a great book lacking the ponderous nature and pomposity of so many business books. The guidances are offered in short, quick to read chapters and many may seem simplistic. So simplistic that you don't do them. Give it a try, you'll see a difference.

Very simplistic and had very little concrete information that you could use to improve your overall wealth. I was disappointed.

This book is pure fluff: there is not one chapter that impressed. There was no advice of substance provided by the author, and in many ways I feel hoodwinked. Maybe therein lies the inside joke: Get Smarter and don't expect to Get Smarter by reading this book.
