Having read dozens of books by entrepreneurs and business people over thirty years, I found this to be one of the best. The advice is there for the taking, the question is do most of us have the fortitude to stick with something you believe in when everyone is telling you that you are wrong?
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Holy smokes; I was just noticing some lower than 5 Stars Reviews. You have no idea how great this book is.
This is instantly an Investment Classic. For those with less stars, go fly a kite and continue to put your head in the sand. Zell, Barrack and Sternlicht. If you didn't glean an MBA in deal making or actually past that, you are a moron is that too subtle? If you are new to real estate or seasoned, you need to read this book. It is ripe with "wisdom". The Tribune naysayers, you should have listened to him, he actually cares and aligns interests. Truly a unique wise and sound individual. I have left a few reviews in the past, but you are a fool not to read this book and if you have less than half the book highlighted, you aren't seeing it.
Thank you Sam Zell. Sam Zell is a master of making complex situations "simple". He can synthesize information into basic concepts and formats. What takes most people a paragraph or more to convey, he can do it in a sentence. If you can't see it, I'm sorry for you. If you can say "thank you" and "blessed to have read this book".
I hope to do similar things and have learned so much. I have always admired Sam Zell from afar. Although I don't personally know him I heard many wonderful things about him.
Reading them first hand was a pleasure. One thinks of a real estate billionaire as a ruthless money hungry individual. This man is an exception. While he has the smarts and the courage to put his genius to work to really pay off, he never forgets his Dad's teaching of Shem Tov, Good name.
He also is considerate of his employees who evidently revere him.

He measures his risks and is almost a soothsayer by applying what he knows to a "most likely" situation. He is a winner and continues winning because he has chutzpa. After reading his wonderful book, I almost feel as if I know him. I made it through the book. There were a few somewhat interesting chapters but it is pretty much just an autobiography of his life with very limited details on what mattered to me most The one area I did find useful was about mid-way through the book where "Grave Dancing" chapter.
Here I learned somethings about historical commercial real estate cycles that I did not know. The rest of the book, IMO, is a bit out of touch with the real world Still very much respect what he has accomplished See all reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 1 month ago.
