Pierce Edwards is a 40-year-old self-made multimillionaire—an executive at the top of his game, yet at the bottom of his existence. His "work harder and faster" mind-set has catapulted him to the top, but it has also strained all of his relationships with his family and his friends. Deep down, he knows he's adrift, but he can't find his way. Finally, his wife and best friend confront him and force him to embark on a journey of change.

In this profound business fable, Pierce begins a life-altering adventure, where he learns the four essential keys to great wisdom. With a fresh perspective, he realizes that trusting in himself and others will lead to extraordinary success—and that success can be measured in extraordinary ways.
