Baker & Taylor A monk recounts how financial advice from God helped him save his monastery but brought new temptations, in a hilarious fictional parody of the self-help genre co-written by the author of Wry Martinis. 50,000 first printing. Tour.
Blackwell North Amer The author, a failed, alcoholic Wall Street trader, had retreated to a monastery. It, too, was failing. The walls were crumbling. The roof was leaking. The monks were on food stamps. An ancient order was about to go belly-up. Then, one fateful day, Brother Ty decided to let God be his broker - and not only saved the monastery but discovered the 7-1/2 Laws of Spiritual and Financial Growth. Brother Ty's remarkable success has been studied at the nation's leading business schools and scrutinized by Wall Street's greatest minds, but the secret to the miracle is not to be found in any management analysis. The answer lies in the ancient texts used by the monks. Now, for the first time, Brother Ty reveals the secrets he found in those texts - complete with chapter and verse citations - and tells how you can get God to be your broker. But even more important than the money you'll make is the inner peace that you will achieve. Each chapter ends with a lesson and Market Meditation that will tell you whether to buy or sell, plus a "host" of other self-improvement strategies.
