Excellent guide and inspiration
The author does a great job of compiling the success of different executives who have admirable qualities that we all can learn from. It is packed with stories that keep interest and it inspires the reader to balance work, faith and family just like the major executives do. Great read!

Real Stories of 9 CEO's
For those who love real stories of business leaders, this contains nuts-and-bolts stories of the lives of 9 CEO's and how their Mormon faith shapes their business decisions and personal lives. We read of their day-to-day activities and outlook on business, employees, life, family, God and their faith.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The special section of the book outlining 3 of the CEO's September 11th experiences while they and their companies were at/near ground zero is especially worthwhile.
The previous edition was subtitled "Leadership and Success through Faith and Family" it is for those who attempt every day to live according to principles that put people first, you'll be inspired to put your family & God first in order to have success and fulfillment at work and lead a successful business whether or not you believe in the Book of Mormon.
The book is well-written and thought-provoking that didn't put these CEO's lives on a pedestal. I felt that the author, Jeff Benedict, walked us through the decision-making process of major and minor decisions of the CEO's with enough background information to appreciate the true value of the decisions while recognizing the costs of arriving at & living with those decisions.
