Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Just in time to replace the now-defunct (or at least diminished) greed-is-good ethos on Wall Street, Israel's wealthiest daughter, Carnival Cruise Lines CEO and major philanthropist, Arison, presents a spiritual approach to successfully running a vast business and effectively giving back. Raised in Israel and Miami, Fla., the thrice-married mother of four and head of the Arison Group (with controlling interests in Israel's largest bank, among other investments) has an experienced, authoritative voice that benefits from her candid bravura, unafraid to divulge the messages she claims to have received from "up above" through dreams and the wishes of others. In simple language, she also recalls many painful and difficult chapters in her life, as well as lessons from her study of the world's religions. Her journey has left her with a rather secular devotion to self-knowledge and authenticity, what she believes are the keys to maintaining order and principle among chaos. Arison's proposal is that business should be driven by core values-integrity, purity, vision, and vitality-rather than financial gain. Though her own enterprises are given an outsized role, Arison proves that new age ideas and generosity can exist harmoniously with pragmatic leadership strategies.

Following the death of her father in 1999, Arison assumed the chairmanship of the Arison Group, a business and philanthropic group headquartered in Tel Aviv.

In 2008, Arison founded Miya, a global water company providing water loss prevention management solutions to municipalities and utilities around the world. Arison is also a major beneficiary shareholder of Carnival Corporation and has served twice on its board.

In 2005, Arison was named Honorary Fellow of the Decade by the interdisciplinary Center Herzliya and she has been serving on the institution's board since 2007. Arison is repeatedly ranked by Forbes Magazine as one of the world's wealthiest women and was also ranked by Forbes among the top 50 most influential women in the world in 2008. Arison was also elected by Globes financial magazine as the most influential businesswoman in Israel in both 2007 and 2009.
