What Tom says:
The Baron Son is remarkable—a challenging and satisfying guide to success through inspired strategic leadership.
The authors, Vicky Davis, William Patterson, and D. Marques Patton, describe the book as "a revealing allegorical tale designed as a road map to business and personal achievement. ... It's the tale of a young boy who loses everything and through struggle finds the secret to becoming the richest, most powerful man the world has ever known." And the strange subtitle? "Vade mecum," the authors say, is "something useful that one constantly carries about; a book, such as a guidebook, for ready reference. Literally translated from Latin, it means, 'go with me.'"
Read the reviews on amazon.com to get a better idea of what the book has to offer. I counted six five-star recommendations there. Remarkable, indeed.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
