Neil Cavuto had written a precise easy to read, account of people who take on life fully, and succeed. The true stories in the book are encouraging and uplifting. Real people who have faced setbacks of all kinds,- dyslexia, financial loss, cancer, depression, - yet they go on to achieve success because of their compassion, honesty, honor. They succeed as a result of their intense hard work and perseverance, - and then from their pinnacle of power as CEO's of their respective companies they help others. These personal and professional tradegies and triumphs are inspirational. You will recognize their names as you read this book and you will be amazed at the challenges they overcame that you never knew anything about. They didn't whine or complain or play the "blame game." They took the curves thrown at them by life- picked themselves up, and climbed their way right back up the ladder of achievement. They simply never quit!Mr Cavuto's "More Than Money" is about learning the true lessons of life.

Will Use This Book With My Coaching Clients

I was drawn to this book because I'm a Coach who specializes in Professional Development and Business Success, helping others succeed despite tough challenges. I often recommend that my clients read books on optimism because optimistic individuals achieve more than pessimists. What I like about Neil Cavuto's book is that it presents case studies on how people achieve great goals in part by maintaining their optimism. Also, I know a great deal about the achievements of Southwest Airlines founder Herb Kelleher and British entrepreneur Richard Branson and can vouch that Mr. Cavuto did an excellent job in summarizing their stories. The sections on Kelleher and Branson give me every reason to trust that stories on the others are accurate, too. Finally, since one of my friends is afflicted with MS, and has managed to keep a positive outlook (I am in awe of her), I have some sense of the health and psychological struggles Mr. Cavuto is facing. It is a testament to his strength that he has written this type of book. I will recommend this work to my clients when I believe case studies will reinforce the coaching process. - Joseph Vranich, Coach, Irvine, California.

Wonderful inspirational book that deserves acclaim!

Before reading this book, I was a sporadic viewer of "Your World" and "Cavuto on Business" on Fox TV. Over the years, I had garnered a healthy respect for Neil Cavuto as an anchor and business reporter, but had no emotional connection with him. After he started mentioning his book on his show, I got curious and found myself leafing through it at my local bookstore. To say the least, I got more than I bargained for -- an emotional connection with a brave and inspirational author, a great respect for those he discusses in his book, and for those who exhibit such courageous intelligent behavior without public recognition. Neil uses the written word even MORE skillfully than the spoken word to show us how people, including himself, rise above adversity and trauma by putting their best selves in charge. I had no idea that Neil had faced and overcome terminal illness and other traumatic losses he describes. Bravo Neil for sharing your soul. I am now a REGULAR viewer of your shows! I wholeheartedly recommend this book and another, "Optimal Thinking: How To Be Your Best Self" to learn how to consistently do your best, bring out the best from others and make the most of any personal or business situation. These books truly bring out the best in all of us!

Looking past the moment

This is a great book of inspiring stories of people who see value in a direction other than the moment. What I think is great about the book specifically are the many examples of business people, including Mr. Cavuto, overcoming (or better yet working with) health afflictions that bring people to their knees. It is good to see people who have excelled when all could have been thought lost. Indeed through the daily pain, perservearance, and tears there is a life that is "more than money". Thanks, Mr. Cavuto, for a book that gives an uplifting spirit for those who, like myself, have a "chronic illness"


Neil Cavuto's MORE THAN MONEY is an extraordinary, deeply inspiring, heartfelt, and very moving book. Mr. Cavuto's reasons for writing the book are in themselves inspiring. As the title indicates, he wants to describe, and remind us of, the most important values in life, all of which are about "more than money." As a storyteller, gifted as he is humble, he chose to personalize and dramatize those values by showing them in action, describing the fascinating, heartbreaking, triumphant, heroic, nobly compassionate, and ultimately, profoundly inspirational and heroic lives of the more than two dozen people, who became and are HIS heroes. Many of the people and lives whom Mr. Cavuto celebrates, appreciates, and expresses his undying gratitude to, are world-famous-Joe Torre, NY Yankees, Geraldine Ferraro, retired politician, Richard Branson, Virgin's founder, while others are less-well known. Most have achieved major professional success, even greatness, in sports, business, politics, and more, but what makes them Mr. Cavuto's heroes is that every one of them rose to personal greatness, and a dedication of their lives to crusades and missions, with the same universal goal: helping as many other people as they can. The people whose lives he profiles with such clear and worthy admiration and respect, became his heroes because they survived major catastrophes, deadly illnesses, devastating fires, and the deaths of those they loved most, for example, during 9/11, have experienced much of the worst of life, and most importantly, made their survival a life-changing experience, that made them prioritize what is best for others over themselves. It is their courage, nobility, selflessness, determination, and encompassing compassion, the way they dealt with their own tragedies and losses, and what they did while, and after, surviving, that has inspired Mr. Cavuto as he's struggled with the continuing devastation in his own life for almost twenty years. After losing both of his parents to cancer, Neil Cavuto became a cancer survivor seventeen years ago, and the inspiration and example of his heroes greatly helped him through the next, difficult ten years of cancer remission, and supported and elevated him even more when seven years ago, he was also diagnosed with incurable Multiple Sclerosis. A rare, double survivor, Mr. Cavuto has a special appreciation for those survivors whose suffering makes them think less about themselves, and more about the too-vast suffering of many millions of people in America and around the world. While he interweaves the story of his own life, within the unforgettable life stories of his heroes, his primary focus is always on them, and what they did and are doing, and his writing this book that celebrates and illuminates the life-missions and crusades of his heroes, is his own, very important way, of helping other people endure, rise above, and if possible, avoid, the causes of suffering that are
