Overview

Readable in fifty-eight minutes: Traditional Eastern wisdom and real-life business experience come together in this brief and practical guide, which offers a step-by-step plan that will help readers adopt a more successful way of working and living.

KARMIC MANAGEMENT is a little book with a revolutionary message. It turns traditional business mentality on its head by stating simply that helping others become successful—suppliers, customers, even competitors—is the real key to success in life as well as in business.

Drawing from their own entrepreneurial experiences, the authors explain how, in eight basics steps that take less than one hour in total, readers can learn to apply KARMIC MANAGEMENT to meet goals, both personal and professional. Each lesson opens with a quotation from a Buddhist text and explains how it applies to life and work in the twenty-first century. The authors show readers how to identify the things that aren’t working for them, discover their most valuable assets, and use their new insights to improve the lives of others. To-do lists throughout the book provide practical tools and exercises, and real-life examples highlight the power of KARMIC MANAGEMENT to make dreams come true.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Billed as the sequel to the best-selling The Diamond Cutter, this slim volume lays out its "Eight Rules of Karmic Management," a business philosophy predicated upon helping "karmic business partners"-co-workers, customers and suppliers, the world-succeed. With brief testimonials from hip-hop entrepreneur Russell Simmons and advertising executive Linda Kaplan Thaler, the guide lays out a mishmash of Eastern religions and such New Age strategies as visualizing future endeavors with a 100% success rate. Much of the book yields more puzzlement than enlightenment: the authors offer unfocused personal anecdotes, and various contradictory statements create further confusion (e.g., an assertion that the method "always works" is followed by the qualifying "If it works, then you have a friend for life in KM"). Also befuddling (and troubling) in a treatise espousing altruism toward competitors is praise for retailing giant Wal-Mart, whose evisceration tactics against rivals are widely documented. (Sept. 1)
