Money and "Happyness"
Chris Gardner's book, The Pursuit of Happyness, yields insight into the intellectual and intuitive skills needed to make money with money. It's a quick read, if read to cull the steps which led from homelessness in San Francisco to riches on Wall Street; however, it will be difficult to avoid getting pulled into the profoundly intimate first person narrative details. The bottom line is that Gardner was motivated by what he didn't know, and he differentiated himself from all the wannabees by his awareness of what he didn't know, and his choices to not percieve lack-of-knowledge as inpenetrable barriers to success. He didn't need an MBA, but he did need heart.
