The world is fullof people telling you how to live your life. Sometimes the advice-givers fall ever-so-slightly short themselves. Bestselling author Zac Bissonnette has gathered more than seventy-five jaw-dropping gems, including risk-management advice from the man who triggered the world's largest hedge fund collapse and tips from gay-prostitute-patronizing pastor Ted Haggard on how to build a marriage that lasts a lifetime. The result will keep you smiling while you glean all the wisdom you need to build the life you want . . . if only you can follow it better than the people who gave it. 'When you know what you are talking about, others will follow you, because it's safe to follow you.' Lehman Brothers CEO Richard Fuld, 2006 'I think the most important thing is restore a sense of idealism and end the cynicism.' F uture Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, 2002 'The day you take complete responsibility for yourself, the day you stop making any excuse, that's the day you start to the top.' O. J. Simpson, 1975

I loved this book! It clearly shows how we need to look past an individual's celebrity status or "star power" before deciding who to trust &/or admire, even when they've been featured on reputable programs such as Oprah, and major networks like CNN, CNBC, etc.
