The Mormons have produced a striking number of successful businesspeople. JOKES about sacred underpants have reached epidemic proportions, thanks to Mitt Romney's presidential bid and the musical masterpiece by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, The Book of Mormon. But the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, to give it its full name, is fighting back. A huge advertising campaign features ordinary people doing ordinary things-a white man sporting a beard, a black man sporting a moustache and a young skateboarder flying through the air-with the tag line: I'm a Mormon.

The author does a great job showing how the Mormon life has worked well for his selection of CEOs. The Mormon way of life seems to have worked very well for these leaders. Particularly, the 2-year missions that each participated in seemed to have profoundly shaped their work and leadership ethic.

What puzzles me is the question of whether their success was caused by being a Mormon or whether the book merely shows a strong correlation between being a success as a business leader and successfully following the Mormon religion. Given the millions of Mormons who also grow up within the church but do not become successful leaders, I doubt the causality.

I read this book in response to a NBC News piece back in the summer of 2012 about the Mormon faith. The author, who discloses up front the fact he is Mormon, does a thorough job of identifying the common threads in the lives of successful Mormon businessmen.

I drew five conclusions why the men profiled in the book achieved their success:

1. Their mission work as young men helped mature them, teach them responsibility and independence at an early age.

2. "No success in business can compensate for failure in the home." - Former Harvard Business School dean Kim Clark

3. Their time as unpaid pastors in their churches served as leadership laboratories, helping them understand human nature and how to motivate teammates.

4. Having the willpower to remove any barrier to performance - alcohol, infidelity, time consuming hobbies, even caffeine - enabled them to focus on the task at hand, free from distractions.

5. Knowing they were under the microscope as ambassadors of their faith forced them to always make ethical decisions in their personal and professional lives.

One need not be Mormon to appreciate the conclusions Benedict reaches in his analysis of these men. As a bonus chapter, Benedict provides additional analysis on Mitt Romney, painting him in a way most Americans would not have guessed. While I did not vote for Gov. Romney and would not have changed my vote by reading that chapter before the election, I certainly see him in a different light as a result of Benedict's work on this subject.

My impression of this book changed from the moment I picked it up. I think I was expecting an organizational how-to and instead gained insight into the souls of several big, BIG business leaders of our time. And guess what? They are human! They cook breakfast, drive the kids around, cry, worry, and most of all love. It was an easy, page-turning read until I got to the chapters about 9/11 and then it became a couldn't-put-it-down. Three of these men had parallel experiences during those terror attacks. The true measure of their character came out during that tough time. Read it for yourself to see how they handled themselves and the lives of thousands of employees. Excellent, excellent writing, awesome material, strong ethics, colorful personalities.

Wonderful insight on how some of the most successful men in big league business thrive while balancing obligations in business, their families, and service to others in their church.

Balanced perspective, and genuine insight into a widely misunderstood religion, "The Mormon Way of Doing Business" is well worth your time. Solid recommendation for this book.

I recommend this book for those who are and those who are not members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church, Mormons). Instead of pointing to the Mormon religion itself as the cause of economic prosperity and personal happiness in the lives of the men and their wives/families examined, I feel that the author, who is also a Mormon, non-biasely approached the topic, citing the principles instilled in those whom he interviewed. Those principles just happen to be taught and reiterated in the LDS Church, but they really do benefit any and everyone and are found amongst people from all walks of life.

I feel a greater motivation to be there for my family and to be a morally responsible, contributing member of society. I, too, adhere to the LDS faith and honestly enjoyed this book. However, those who are not Mormon will enjoy it as well.

This is one of the better business books I have ever read. It is a light read, and goes quickly. As I read the book, I considered my relationship with my own family. My 3 year old son kept approaching me on Saturday afternoon wanting to "color" with him. Rather than blowing him off and saying "I'm too busy," I put my book down and shared 10 minutes with him doing something HE felt was important. The greatest message is that the only titles that matter in this life are "Husband" and "Father." Everything else is irrelevant.

Knowing one of the principle subjects of the book, I appreciate the power of the strong women in the lives of these successful businessmen. To be successful at home and in life, a strong marriage & united partnership is key. As the Book of Matthew states, "By their fruits ye shall know them." You can plainly see that with these great families profiled.
A very entertaining book yet causes one to evaluate their own life. We would all be better if more time was devoted to family.
