Jon built the business from a small operation in 1970 to what it is today, a multi-billion dollar firm. He built the organization based on solid moral principles that many of us believe are right and cna be done.
A handshake and promise is something to be kept. You should surround yourself with people who have and live the same ethics and value that you have. Giving back to the community and those less fortunate isn't a nice thing to do... it goes with being an American and a world citizen.
It'd be all too easy to write this off as simplistic platitudes that are easier said than done. But Huntsman has proven they do work, and there are numerous examples in the book that offer proof. He's an inspiring example to other business people who are trying to be on the same path as the one he chose.
The book is inspirational and very short. The writing style is a bit weak, the 4 star review is for the inspirational content from one leader to another. (less)
