    what an awesome personality

    i have known about amway since 1998, and also known a bit about the founders from the amagram which is received by all the biz owners from time to time.

    after reading this book, i am in complete awe of this great personality which has really revolutionised the way we do biz. Oh what an idea and what an opportunity only people of GOD can think about such an idea. May the Lord Bless him and keep him in good health.

    I feel this book should be read by each and every human being, as this will really put you on the track to living a life which talks about abundance and how to bring the abundance into other peoples lives. Truly a great book, infact i would not hesitate to call it " THE BIBLE FOR LIVING A GREAT LIFE" hats off to this great Gentleman. I really salute you Sir Rich Devos

    Living for a reason

    Rich DeVos is not a regular headline maker, but he certainly has spent his life making a difference for others. Co-founder of Amway Corporation and owner of the Orlando Magic basketball team, Rich DeVos has succeeded with integrity in business and in life. Pat Williams (Magic VP and author of the popular 'How to Be Like...' series) and co-author Jim Denney dig deep into the goldmine of DeVos¿s life to present a book that is a treasure-trove of facts, anecdotes and life lessons to grow by. Unlike many ¿success¿ stories, How to Be Like Rich DeVos tells of a man who¿s spent his life sacrificing to help others, building teams, changing lives and giving the glory to God. Beginning with the Amway story and traveling into the Orlando Magic, his recent heart transplant and beyond, those who¿ve known and loved Rich DeVos over the years are given voice in this book¿s almost endless stories. From his successes as well as his failures, readers learn the principles that have driven this amazing life¿values that include having the courage to stand up and lead, willingness to take risks, building relationships that last, being a mentor for others, giving, loving your family and your country, and most of all, loving God. We can live for the moment, or we can live for a legacy. We may not all be able to learn first-hand from Rich DeVos as Pat Williams has, but thanks to How to Be Like Rich, we can all benefit from the lessons of a life that will far outlive the man. If a legacy is what you want to live for, absorb the wealth of How to Be Like Rich DeVos. Maybe it¿s not too late to start over.

    The best biography you can ever read!

    I picked this book up out of total curiosity about the man who co-founded Amway. I was expecting to read a lot of flattery and rah-rah's for this man. This book totally shocked me. Once you pick it up you will not be able to put it down. Rich Devos is such an awesome man that you will totally relate and love this man. Pat Williams has done such a great job by writing this book. Most Billionaires you hear about are pompous about their wealth, but not Rich. He just refers to himself as a 'Sinner saved by Grace.' And I am a Hindu! I am not at all offended by his strong Christian faith, because he just makes so much sense. He doesn't blow off people who believe in other faiths and I don't think anyone should judge him for his. This book gives you an insight to a billionaire's mind. I just finish reading Donald Trump's book, and what a contrast!! I loved Trump's book, but this book actually got me up from my comfort zone and helped me get the job done. Gang this is one awesome book. Please make sure you get one and one for the person you love.
