I want to be seriously rich!

If this is something you tell your friends, then this is the book for you. Written by the woman in Asia to become CEO of a bank (the Grindlays Dao Hang in Hong Kong). Lillian Too was later appointed Executive Deputy Chairman of the Dickson Concepts Group before successfully packaging a buyout of the Dragon Seed Department Store Group. Then, as Chairman of the latter, she used her professional deal making skills to make millions for herself. In the early Nineties she sold out, cashed up and began writing books. By the end of the decade she had made another fortune as an international bestselling author and become probably the world's most popular authority on feng shui, the Chinese practice of harnessing good luck from the environment.

In this wonderfully motivating, yet practical book Lillian Too spells out the basics of money management, the people perspective, identifies the risk areas and discusses all the key success factors in building a business or starting one from scratch. She also shows you how to gather in good fortune from your surroundings — and make yourself as rich as croesus!

One of the better books about what to do when you're with a corporation. Funny and good.
