What makes a world-class financial genius tick?

Enter the mind of a financial mastermind who started from scratch to build a world-wide business empire. Meshulam Riklis invites you on his amazing roller coaster ride to meteoric heights, providing valuable tips for life, for success, and for survival.

A billionaire shares his secrets

In his story, Riklis shares with you the business techniques that he perfected; “how a small fish eats a big fish,” his magic formula for mergers and acquisitions based on his thesis; “the effective use, or rather non-use, of cash in financial transactions,” and the unshakable beliefs that allowed him to found and run some of the most desired brand names in the world such as Elizabeth Arden, Faberge, Cartier, Carnival Cruise Lines, Playtex and the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

But it’s not all roses, right?

Riklis also reveals the personal price he had to pay: three marriages, endless girlfriends, and the relentless loneliness that shadowed him daily. Join Riklis as he rises to the top of the business world and sinks to the oblivion of despair as you draw on his inspiring ability to overcome crises.

In $950 Million in 40 Minutes, Meshulam Riklis tells the rreader his life story, of how he became one of the richest people in the world and built his own business empire from scratch. It’s an inspiring read about never giving up, about always fighting on, no matter what the odds are.

The book also explains several of Riklis’ business techniques, which offer some interesting insights into the mind of an entrepeneur extraordinaire, but it also details the high price of this financial success: three marriages, an endless line of girlfriends, and despite all that, a sinking loneliness that can’t be overcome.

This is an inspiring memoir but also an honest, heartfelt one, and it showcases success as well as failure. Yet, it also shows that no matter how many obstacles you have to overcome, there’s always hope.
