Brilliant truthful and filled with good advice

Love this guy- he tells it like it is. When charismatic company ceos tell us that the corporate experience is not about money, it's about "Love" ; one needs authors like Mark Pollan more than ever . When some VPs are receiving hefty paychecks- is their experience of love sweeter than my own I wonder? It's the individual employees responsibility to get the "love" they deserve..We all use a different yardstick to measure value - and this author points out a standard that should be at the top of the list- hint : it's green We live in a hypocritical world folks - at least this author tells the truth. Another thing I loved about the book was the aknowledgement that despite diversity training, age discrimination is widely practiced- take those dates off your resumes the Author advises. Brilliant , I intend to read his entire repetoire

Do it for the money and the love will follow.

I loved this book (audio version). At the time I was struggling with my job because although I was making money, I didn't love the work. Mr Pollan cleared my mind and with clear and useable tools I was able to re-invent my work self and put my priorities in order. 1. Work for money. 2. Work for yourself. 3. Go home and enjoy the family/community time. I recommend the audio version (Stephen, why not release a CD version?) because the author's voice is classic and you can feel the conviction of what he's saying. I also have the print version and it is a little more dry (straight information.) I have given the audio as a gift a number of times and each person calls to thank me for the 'life altering gift'. It can change your view of money and work and enjoyment if you'll let it.

If it proves to be true, most people don't get it!

Live Rich : Everything You Need to Know to Be Your Own Boss, Whomever You Work forby Stephen M. Pollan, Mark Levine I read most of the other reviews of this book, and as is typical of reviews I disagree with, they just don't get it!Reading this book reminded me of the days when I was a Human Resources Manager for a particular company and even though an employee deserved and earned a decent pay raise, the General Manager on his own value system alone, regardless of company growth and increased business would expect me to negotiate .05 and .10, that's five and ten cent annual increases to many of the employees, especially minorities (No I am not a minority, yes I am a Republican).This book simply brings to the front the fact that you may be told from early childhood that working hard and doing all of the right things makes you a value and asset to the company, but in reality your an expense on the bottom line. Sure there are a few companies out there that value their employees, but where are they? I could provide dozens of case studies that prove this book to be right on the money.What this book does for you: It forces you to consider the reality of your role in a company, and presses home the fact that employment is a trade-off of your time and skills for a paycheck, not a lifestyle, ego trip, second family as our parents were led to believe.I could go on and on about this book, but I recommend you buy it, and evaluate your views of a job (just over broke), and how it fits into your reality, is it really 50% of your entire lifes value? It is if your like most people, which is sad since there is only 1 company remaining of the original Dow Jones 12...nobody remembers the other 11 companies or any of their employees, or their deeds, but wow did they spend thousands of lifetimes being loyal and proud to be a team player...for the book and find out!

Packed with some great gems-

I was struggling with my career enjoyment when I was recommended this audio book by a co-worker/aspiring entrepeneur. I loved it. Turned my attitude toward work and money around 180'. Ideas like- You're either an owner or a temp, work is for making money- home is for enjoyment, do what makes money and the love will follow- these ideas never occurred to me and now I can't remember not knowing them. I loved the book and have returned to buy used copies for my capitalist friends. Enjoy capitalism- make more money.

Wisdom delivered with style - read the book!

If you are going to work, and that's most of us, why not understand what's really going on? Why not understand the role of career in our lives? If you aren't happy at work, Live Rich can likely help a lot. If you once had a business and it failed, Live Rich will tell you why. If you want a business, Live Rich will tell you how - and this is where it's strongest. Here's a book for the real world: practical, brilliant and simple at the same time. Stephen Pollan's insight - which people line up to pay him for - is here just for the asking. It's the easiest, most effective course on business - a book that should make the folks at the Harvard Business School ashamed of what they charge and how long they take to teach. Gavin de Becker, author The Gift of Fear.
