This book is NOT about building a wildly successful business in a traditional sense. And it’s certainly NOT about “How I made millions, and you can too.” 

This book was written for those that want to unlock their highest potential. To make his point, the author, Gene Hammett, shares the hidden message that he found in losing millions on one day. That "message" is exactly what he failed to understand in his climb to traditional success.
