Written by Canadian Billionaire, Seymour Schulich at the age of 67. He writes his insights about business, a fulfilling life and philanthropy.
His target market is mainly young adults between the ages of 20-40. I don't think you can ask for more from the author. I think he gives an honest account of what he thinks a person of this age should know or work toward. He also indicated in this book that he has read over 2,500 books, so he is writing out of experience and knowledge.
There are appendixes attached to this book that share his top picks for books and movies, an account of starting one of his businesses and an account of his trip to the Arab world in 2006.
If you are between the ages of 20-40 years old, this book can mentor you in some things that can help you in your life and business endeavours. To top it all off you are not being mentored by someone who hasn't done it, but a real billionaire, entrepreneur and philanthropist .
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.
Inbetveen the speculater and value,l would recommended to any age not only for young ones,
