In The Denial of Death, Ernest Becker observes that no one can deny physical death. However, there is another death which can be denied: The death which occurs when we become wholly preoccupied with fulfilling others' expectations of us. Vincent Roazzi agrees. In this remarkable book, he candidly reviews his life and shares the lessons he has learned from it thus far. Born and raised in Brooklyn, he joined a gang and became a car thief. Later, he became involved with family-owned businesses and enjoyed great financial success. By age 32, he had become addicted to cocaine and gambling. His addictions threatened his marriage and his relations with five children. He was broke and on welfare. At age 36, he decided that he had two choices: enter a rehabilitation program or commit suicide. He chose the former and began to rebuild his life. Eventually, he became wealthy as a salesperson with the Cornerstone organization with which he continues to share what he has learned about personal development and professional achievement. He has paid a substantial "tuition" for the "education" gained over several decades of both success and failure. Like most other people, he seems to have learned the most valuable lessons from his failures. The most important of these lessons -- directly or indirectly -- reveal and indeed celebrate the importance of spiritual nourishment. The title of the book correctly indicates how important spiritual values are to Roazzi. For him, the most successful people are those who have gained much of what the material world has to offer without losing their soul. Those who share my high regard for this book are urged to read Maister's Practice What You Preach, Whyte's The Heart Aroused, and Sanders' Love Is the Killer App.
