Another aspect which sets this book apart are continual reminders of where business practices and values came from and what they mean for a company and everyone affected by their existence.

“I wrote this book because young adults today are getting bad advice about how to succeed,” Lewis says. “I want to show them a better way. When it comes to being successful in life, having good judgment and making good decisions are far more important than just being smart.”

“In today’s media-driven, anything-goes culture,” says Lewis, “we seem to be losing sight of solid ground-the time-tested attributes of personal character, hard work, goal setting, self-awareness, and helping others-that have always been necessary for a successful life. Popular myths are now attempting to redefine everything, and the ‘solid ground’ is being replaced with the ‘shifting sands’ of instant gratification, self-absorption, and consumerism.”
