Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is an incredible story. The author, a failed, alcoholic Wall Street trader, had retreated to a monastery. It, too, was failing. Then, one fateful day, Brother Ty decided to let God be his broker — and not only saved the monastery but discovered the 7 1/2 Laws of Spiritual and Financial Growth. Brother Ty's remarkable success has been studied at the nation's leading business schools and scrutinized by Wall Street's greatest minds, but until now the secret to his 7 1/2 Laws of Spiritual and Financial Growth have been available only to a select few:
  • 87 percent of America's billionaires
  • 28 recent Academy Award winners
  • Over half the recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize
  • No members of the U.S. Congress
Now, for the first time, Brother Ty reveals the secrets he has gleaned from the ancient texts of the monks, and tells how you can get God to be your broker. God Is My Broker is the first truly great self-help business novel. Open this book and open your heart. It will change your life.

Review:

"A withering and witty novel....Vastly entertaining." Washington Post

Review:

"God is My Broker is irreverent, silly, and genuinely funny." Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Review:

"A hilarious book — sly, smart and deeply satisfying." New York Times

Review:

"As a literary work, God Is My Broker is a delightful Beaujolais, not a fine Figeac. But it's perfect with shish kebab." Boston Globe

Review:

"This hilarious spoof on spiritual and financial gurus...proves that satire can be an occasion of grace." People
