The fluctuating economy proves the edict that the more things change, the greater the need for things that never change. In Thou Shall Prosper, Rabbi Daniel Lapin offers readers an approach to gaining wealth based on the established principles of the Jewish tradition. Although Rabbi Lapin uses Jewish wisdom and Talmudic prescriptions, his message is universal. He outlines ten fundamentals focusing on modifying behavior and thought that will increase anyone's potential for creating wealth. His commandments include: Know money, specifically your own; Believe in the morality and dignity of business; and Pursue constructive partnerships and alliances. Thou Shall Prosper uses real--life examples from past and present to illustrate Rabbi Lapin's points and suggests engaging actions to put these commandments immediately to work.
