Life and Business Lessons

Get Smarter by Seymour Schulich is a business book full of life and business lessons from business and non-business perspectives. Seymour Schulich is a self-made Canadian billionaire and a great philanthropist. So far, he has donated over $200 million dollar to various educational and non-educational organizations.

Get Smarter has 49 chapters in total. In appendix, Schulich describes his top ten movies, his trip to the Arab World and a reading list.
