About the Author
A graduate of Whartons prestigious Management Program, B. Leve has spent the last two decades examining the philosophies of business as an analyst on Wall Street, as Director of Operations in an ad agency, and as a freelance accountant. He has also traveled the Middle East extensively in search of spirituality. It is where the two meet, the spiritual and the physical, that B. Leves vision is focussed, and is the foundation for the parables he tells.

There I go again! Seriously, this book evidences the genius of a writer who understands the wisdom of the ages, who has experienced the Arab-Israeli conflict up close, and wishes to impart enduring lessons on the burgeoning cybercommerce class. (I made up the word "cybercommerce." Do I get my free toy surprise?)
What are those lessons? That the secular and religious worlds need not, in the minds of cybercommerce mandarins, be partitioned like desks in a drawer. Rather, the idea of feeling "good" in the secular world can and must be consistent with the classical theological ideal of good works.
B.Leve, to his immense credit, avoids a major pitfall. He does not impart the Calvinistic notion that our worthiness to God is based on our personal industry (Ebeneezer Scrooge, please call Marley). In addition, his aforementioned experience with the Arab-Israeli conflict allows him to use the Islamic confusion with the secular-religious balance as a basis from which to explain how harmony between the two can actually be achieved.
I heartily endorse this book, and urge you to read it. You'll believe.
After I read it, though, I was like, "Wow!" This is the best business book ever, and at the same time part sci-fi, part philosophy, and part just hysterical comedy.
Read this book. It will change the way you look at things!
