This is a mentoring book primarily for the 20-to-40-year-old with entrepreneurial aspirations. Many older folks will also derive considerable inspiration from the life and business lessons contained in Get Smarter.
In examining his own life Seymour Schulich, a Canadian billionaire and philanthropist, realized that at age 20 he-like others his age-knew very little and was aware of that fact. At 30, he writes, one thinks one has acquired a lot of wisdom.
Upon later reflection, however, he realized he knew very little at that age, too!
Get Smarter is Schulich`s brilliantly idiosyncratic and informative attempt to impart lessons learned in a lifetime to today?s youth by someone who has achieved success in both his personal and professional life. In short, stand-alone chapters he covers such universal issues as:
-How to make a decision
-Manage all types of relationships
-Choose a career
-Deal with adversity
-Key business issues
