Great book if you want to become a better all around person. Good length for the price. Lots of examples to go with the messages. Only downside is if your not religious you may tire of the religious connections. But either way you'll do good to read it.
Thou Shall Prosper Connects the Dots to More Money
Rabbi Lapin describes, in minute detail, how Jewish people have read bible verses on prospering and have used those verses as a foundation to build a prosperous community and culture. And no, this is no rude stereotype or ugly rumor.
This book is the answer to my request for a miracle from G-d for a different way to view my financial situation so that I could prosper in these bad economic times. Literally, moments after I made the request, my tv remote fell on a religious channel, new on my cable network, that I had never watched before. The show was promoting a book about the spiritual connection to prosperity: Money by Design by John Muratori. Muratori briefly mentioned the history of how Jews have prospered. The show's host asked for a donation to get the book. I got the book. Muratori 's chapter on Jewish prosperity was limited but eye opening: There actually is a connection between Jewish communities and prosperity. No hype. I had to have more information than 1 chapter and so I looked for more to read and I came upon Thou Shall Prosper by Rabbi Lapin on itunes.
In a few words, the book is about "Mo Better Money". I was left with the sensation that the rumors and stereotypes about Jewish prosperity were actually put out as sort of a reverse propaganda to keep average people from delving into the Biblical foundation for every believer to prosper. I am Christian and I always wondered why Christian leaders would dismiss bible verses on how to prosper. I mean the verses are there in black and white.
Don't lose decades worth of time and money by not reading the Bible verses on prosperity or pretending that the verses are actually talking about something else. Start with the verses in Exodus and Joshua (1:5-8) Then read or listen to Lapin book.
Again, Rabbi Lapin describes, in minute detail, how Jewish people have read those very verses and used them to build a prosperous culture.
I accidently bought the audio version. The narrator is a slow reader. I am a very fast reader. But maybe this is G-d's way of telling me to look at this subject without using my old eyes.
