Book Description

a head in the corporate world or… one day honey, the next onion

A country club is really just a metaphor. Imagine then, the country club that literally transcends the suit - spiritual success given birth to with the status of Bond Holder. Confused?

a head in the corporate world will elucidate for you the sticky marriage of Caesar and God, indeed, make it possible to feel good, really good, about being rich.

About the Author

A graduate of Wharton’s 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. Leve’s vision is focussed, and is the foundation for the parables he tells.

5.0 out of 5 stars There was one? Aug. 24 2000
By ViceroyCM - Published on Amazon.com
Those looking to find political allusions in B.Leve's tome will be taken into the nearest public square and flogged (with a wet noodle).
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Business Book March 28 2006
By Richard S. Dressall - Published on Amazon.com
I had to read this book (required reading) in the Business Management class I'm taking. I absolutely had no idea why. I thought our Prof was insane.

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!
5.0 out of 5 stars Psychic theft Dec 5 2012
By Clay man - Published on Amazon.com
If I didn't know better, I would have thought the author stole all the best parts of this novel from me. But, of course, that would be impossible - unless he be some sort of mind-reader. Don't try to get it, just internalize it. This book will grow on you and invade your dreams in subtle ways for years to come. One day, while raking leaves or taking an antacid in your somewhat advanced years, you'll say out loud "Oh, I get it..."
