This book is disguised as a low budget 'get rich' read. It's NOT.
Personally, I eschew how-to-make-money books because they are too much like how-to-write-the-next-great-American-novel type books. You read several hundred pages, you think it all makes sense, then BAM, the book is over and nothing much changes. In this comparison, Thou Shall Prosper is akin to the timeless Elements of Style. The real deal.
This book is not truly about getting rich or even just money. This is about PROSPERITY. The book addresses human nature in a grounded and genuine way. How we relate to each other, to money, to our jobs, to ourselves, and to our community all play a part. Each one of these relationships is profound, distinct, and interrelated. Gaining wealth is less about the physical money and more about knowing how to be valuable to other people.
Get the book! Allow yourself to revisit your view of money...not as an evil or mysterious object....but as a intellectual and abstract tool for human beings to use in our pursuit of serving each other and ourselves in a symmetrical way. Value, after all, is rooted in human belief. Therefore, creating value, recognizing value, sharing value, and measuring value are all part of a fundamental self expression. Others will grow with you. Prosperity is simply the net result.
While reading the book, I was struck with a rare clarity. I sensed that I was truly reading something worth reading, something that would allow me to construct the exact life I had always envisioned. No other book has quite had that impact. All of my life experiences reinforced what the author discusses.

The Rabi is very detailed in covering what seems like every aspect of life and buisness. What a unique perspective on life. I find that the Jewish community has discovered something in life that others have missed, or at least were not taugt to me. It was a great read, only a dusting of religion, (so don't be scared off by the "Rabi" part, very good info that applies to the religious and unreligious alike) and allot of really good information about most aspects of life.
If you want a unique look at life, money, buisness, selling, buying.....LIFE!?
This is the book for you. I mean anyone. Everyone.

wisdom that's applicable. would recommend highly to anyone seeking benefit others in addition to themselves
This was a good book with some outstanding thought provoking ideas. A lot of wisdom can be found in this book. Rabbi Lapin certainly knows how to tell a story and the book does seem to drag on a little, this would be my only criticism and not sold on the narrator but overall the wisdom especially the story of Grandpa Lapin and the Havdalah ceremony is Gold!
The Wisdom from the words will change the way you view money forever, and will give you a whole new perspective on life.
