About this title


Get an inside, up-close look at some of the world's richest people--and learn what really motivates them.

The super-rich really aren't like other people. They're a rare breed that inspires awe, envy, admiration--sometimes even hatred. They're idolized, criticized, and demonized. In short, they stand out from the rest of humanity. After all, not everyone can build personal fortunes worth billions or create dominant business empires. It takes a remarkable person, blessed with the "traits of wealth," to accomplish these things.

THE PRIME MOVERS takes a penetrating look at some of these remarkable people--and reveals seven attributes common to all great wealth creators: independent vision, an active mind, competence and confidence, the drive to action, egoistic passion, love of ability in others, and virtue. In the right mix, these traits are what makes someone a Bill Gates, Sam Walton, Mary Kay, or Ross Perot.

Sometimes irreverent, sometimes surprising, but always fascinating, THE PRIME MOVERS sheds welcome light on the powerful personalities and driving forces behind the world's famous (and infamous) ultra-wealthy elite.

From the Author:

"Although many factors set the stage for wealth creation (especially economic freedom), in the end, the wealth has to be created by...specific individuals--and some are much better at it than others. I call those who are very good at wealth creation, 'Prime Movers'.... They are men of intelligence, vision, morality and passion. They are the men who move the world." This book identifies the traits that move the movers. It is about the heroic in man.
