It would have been nice if the likes of Steven Jobs, Jack Welch, etc would have been interviewed.

This quick an easy read had me gripped from cover to cover. Jeffrey Fox uses excellent stories and anecdotes to imprint his family wisdom into your thinking. Useful life lessons that will benefit anyone who reads them.

True relatable business and life lessons in this book. So relatable, I was able to share the basketball story with my 13 year old son. Great book!
