The premise of the book according to the author is that "the story of The House of Morgan is the story of modern finance." My favorite quote from the books is "Morgan bank tellers have a million dollar smile, they only smile if you have a million dollars."
Really enjoyed this personal memoir by Booker T. Washington. Here are two of my favorite quotes: There is a physical, mental and spiritual enjoyment that comes from a consciousness of being the absolute master of ones work, in all it's details, that is very satisfactory and inspiring. The older I grow, the more I am convinced that there is no education one can get from books and costly apparatus that is equal to that which can be gotten from contact with great men and women.
Good book on relationships, intimacy, love, marriage, parenting and self-reflection. Filled with engaging stories and anecdotes from the author's life.
Onward is written in a narrative format. The story is enjoyable and follows Howard's story of founding his own coffee company Il Giornale, his purchasing of Starbucks, and covers much of the Starbucks story from the time of his purchase in 1988 to 2011.
Motivating and entertaining. My 2018 Q4 theme is physical health and fitness which is one reason I selected this book. This is a fun book and motivated me to get out of my comfort zone physically and mentally.
This book sparked a lot of curiosity in me. It gave a lot of motivation to write more and think about what legacy I am leaving behind. As the quote below mentions, 500 years later we are still learning from Leonardo's notes. I like the list of lessons to learn in the conclusion.
