“How timely! How needed it is for one of the finest human beings, industrial leaders, and philanthropists on the planet to compellingly drill down on timeless, universal values for business and life. This book edifies, inspires, and motivates all of us to model these common sensical lessons for our organizations, all our relationships, and especially our posterity—for what is common sense is obviously not common practice. Primary greatness is character and contribution. Secondary greatness is how most people define success—wealth, fame, position, etc. Few have both. Jon’s one of them.” —Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

“In his creative gifts, in his business success, in his great philanthropy, in his human qualities, Jon Huntsman stands in a class all of his own.” —Richard Cheney, Vice President of the United States, on the occasion of the dedication of Huntsman Hall, The Wharton School, The University of Pennsylvania

“Jon Huntsman has successfully navigated corporate America guided by a strong moral compass. In his book, Jon shares his depth of knowledge and outlines how to succeed in today’s competitive market place while taking the high ground.” —Senator Elizabeth Dole

“Jon Huntsman’s new book ought to be mandatory reading for leaders—and those who aspire to be leaders—in every field. His secrets for success are no secrets at all, but invaluable lessons that he has reminded us, with his life and now with his words, are the pillars upon which we can build our lives, too.” —Senator Tom Daschle

“Jon Huntsman’s book is about ethics, values, and his experiences. The practical way in which he shares those with the reader is amazing. This is a book with inspiration for a younger generation.” —Jeroen van der Veer, Chief Executive, Royal Dutch/Shell Group

“As I read Jon’s book, I thought my father had returned to tell me that you are either honest or you are dishonest, that there is nothing in between. 2 + 2 = 4, never 3.999 or 4.001. Also, if you always say what you believe, you don’t need to have a good memory. If we could only live the principles Jon has followed, what a different world it would be—both in our business and personal relationships.” —Former U.S. Senator and Astronaut Jake Garn

“Jon Huntsman has taken us back to the basics—the basic values that transcend all professions and cultures. He has provided real-life examples that are inspiring and show that ‘good guys’ really can finish first. And he shows us how you can learn from mistakes. It is a ‘must read’ for both young men and women just stepping onto the golden escalator to success and anyone seeking reassurance that how one lives every day really does matter.” —Marsha J. Evans, former President and CEO, American Red Cross

“A refreshing and candid discussion on basic values that can guide you from the sandbox to the boardroom—told by a straight shooter.” —Chuck Prince, Chairman and CEO, Citigroup

“Jon’s outlook on moral and ethical behavior in business should be inspirational to all who read this book. The lessons of fair play and holding true to personal moral values and ethics are time-honored principals which are all too often overlooked in today’s world. While this book is geared to those in business, I see it as worthwhile reading to anyone.” —Rick Majerus, former ESPN Basketball Analyst and legendary basketball coach, St. Louis University.

“It is true that all business enterprises are profit oriented, but the avarice for wealth and the ardent desire to stay competitive tend to lure more and more corporate executives to resort to unscrupulous, unethical practices. Although they may achieve temporary successes, their lucrative lies and fraud will be their ultimate undoing, causing great losses to their shareholders. Jon’s book is a stentorian call for the corporate world to reassert accepted moral values...
