Description

With a unique combination of ancient and contemporary wisdom from Tibetan Buddhism, The Diamond Cutter presents readers with empowering strategies for success in their personal and professional lives. The book is presented in three layers. The first is a translation of The Diamond Sutra, an ancient text of conversations between the Buddha and his close disciple Subhuti. The second contains quotes from some of the best commentaries in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. And the third layer, the main text, is the practical application of Buddhist philosophies to the world of business, based upon Geshe Michael Roach's 17-years of experience as an employee of the Andin International Diamond Corporation, a company that grew during his tenure from four employees to a world leader in the jewelry industry.

Roach's easy style and spiritual understanding make The Diamond Cutter an invaluable source of timeless wisdom for those familiar or unfamiliar with Tibetan Buddhism. His focus on practical personal and business applications has resonated with and changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals the world over since its original publication.

Business book for all businessmen MUST to read

Really, even though I am not a Buddhist, listening to this book completely changed my perspective on running the business in general. It can be done differently and enjoyably and I cant wait to put what I learned here into practice. Thank you Geshe Michael.

Spiritual Materialism

I teach Buddhism and have done so for 30 years. The essence of the Buddha's teaching is that suffering is reduced by accepting things as they are. This book is akin to the new age "classic" The Secret. In The Diamond Cutter, the author provides a number of very specific inner and outer behaviors that will supposedly and magically change reality to fit a person's particular desires. The world simply does not work like this and this book bears almost no resemblance to the teachings of the Buddha.

Excellent content but substandard vocal

The vocal of this audible book is unaudiable, it sounds blur and unclear and put people to sleep. I believe the producer made a big mistake allowing the author to do the sound. It was horrible and hugely impact the value of the book.

A Fantastic Book

A great look at business ethics and their effects through a Buddhist lens. A number of fantastic principles are discussed as well as interesting facts about the diamond businesses.

A book for every business person, regardless of your beliefs.

My only criticism was in the last section of the book, where famous and pseudo-famous people tell stories of their implementation of the principles and its effect on their lives and businesses; it seemed a little self promoting and a bit inconsistent with the way the rest of the the book was laid out.

Michael Roach, the author, received the Presidential Scholars Medallion from President Richard Nixon and graduated from Princeton University in 1974. He is an ordained Buddhist monk and received the geshe degree in 1995 from the Sera Monastery in India, being the first Westerner to do so.

Roach was also one of the founders at Andin International, an international diamond business in in New York, which grew from a $50,000 investment into a $100,000,000 business.

This book can be life changing

The positive message for how living your life focused on giving of oneself, caring for others, being concerned for their well being and success will lead to a life of happiness, wellbeing and prosperity for you as well is inspirational at best. A wonderful book that I plan to work toward incorporating into my daily work and family routines.

One of the most important books I have ever read!

I loved it. The beginning chaptets were a bit of a challenge, but the rewards were in sticking it out. Thank you for sharing these important ancient lessons that are so applicable now!

Needs professional reader

The writer does his book a disservice through self narration. His voice is very flat and monotone. He often pauses at the wrong point in the sentence, makes digesting new concepts even more difficult. But I think material is good. Perhaps I'll buy the book in pulp.

Very rich book that opens up your perspective.

This is a book you must dedicate time in understanding. You can't read or hear it just once. If you are considering getting into this book, get ready to make a commitment to growth and self improvement and to studying these principles mentioned, otherwise it is a waste of your time. I recommend it but do keep in mind that you will never be the same. Even if you are only willing to open your mind just a little bit.

Aweful speaker!!

I read the book a few years a ago and loved it. Now I founded as an audiobook, ans I was excited to start, but I cannot hear it, the speaker (the Author himself) is so bad, I cannot even go through the first chapter.
