Publisher's Summary

Become an extraordinary, results-producing champion for humanity and yourself! 

In life, there are two types of people. The first are those who are nice, good-hearted, and compassionate, but can’t make much happen. The other kind can make everything happen - they’re the creators, the go-getters, and the aggressive producers in society - however, they’re often self-centered, greedy, and unethical. 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could make things happen in a really big way, but not lose your integrity? The Compassionate Samurai will show you the way to produce extraordinary results in a dog-eat-dog world and still maintain the highest levels of ethics.

Klemmer delivers

What a treasure trove of winning, successful perspectives! I have no doubt that if this world adopted these principles, this world would look very different indeed. Brian Klemmer breaks down winning characteristics in a manner that is easy to process and deep at the same time. A must read for anyone looking to create a more fulfilling life.

Ok for those new in the personal development

There are some good takeaways from the book, however they are hard to sift though with all of the name dropping and stories of people who are hard to relate to. Not super eloquent in explanation of principals. I did not feel that there was much in the book that felt fresh or new (or particularly inspiring). The writer doesen't seem to meet the "average joe" at their level and bring them up.. it felt more like he was standing on a pedestal telling me all the ways I may be wrong, without giving real action steps on how to get where i want in my growth.
Sometimes hearing things in a different way can be helpful to some.. maybe that is this book for someone?

This is a must read!

This is such a great book. I love the way Brian explains each area of being a Compassionate Samurai. He gives you a few exercises throughout the book to stop and think about what it is he shares with us. Easy to understand and to put the teachings into practice.
