Item description for I'm Not the BOSS, I Just Work Here by Howard Jonas...

A candid and compelling new memoir by Howard Jonas, chairman and founder of IDT Corporation. This work is a miniature masterpiece, a must-read for anyone interested in cultivating and refining an inner life.

Coming at a time when Scripture is being used as a divisive and destructive tool, this is a Bible-based work with universal appeal. Drawing on his personal experiences, divulging his struggle against depression and detailing the close-knit family bonds that have sustained him his entire life, Jonas, the founder of IDT Corp., one of America's top telecommunication companies and father of nine, returns time and again to the teachings of the Torah, the Jewish Bible, which are at the core of his belief system.

Regardless of one's religion, lifestyle or upbringing, I'M NOT THE BOSS, I JUST WORK HERE is that rare book with the power to touch -- and transform -- the lives of readers around the world.

In many ways, Howard Jonas, a baby boomer and Bronx native, is a man for our times. Coming of age in the confusing era of the Kennedy assassination, Jonas wrestles with conflicting social and economic ideologies, ultimately finding his spiritual and intellectual haven within Judaism. Addressing such timeless issues as how evil can co-exist in a universe created by -- and ruled by -- God, Jonas speaks not a rabbi, preacher or philosopher, but as a contemporary Everyman.

His personal quest informs and enriches our own.

Reviews - What do customers think about I'm Not the BOSS, I Just Work Here?

Practice what you preach  Aug 3, 2004
I'm sure that some people will find inspiration in what Mr. Jonas writes. However, the sad reality is that the business practices of IDT leave much to be desired and in no way reflect Mr. Jonas' supposed commitment to a Torah way of life. His company is rife with nepotism, engages in borderline business practices with it's suppliers and customers and treats employees shabbily (if not outright illegaly). This can easily be verified by many former employees, customers and suppliers from the earliest days of IDT's founding up until the present. Maybe this book is type of attempt at assuaging a guilty conscience, but those in the know can read between the lines.
Bravo for Howard Jonas  Jun 15, 2004
A succesful business tycoon with a penchant for philosophy reveals in entertaining and readable prose how the wisdom of the past can be harnessed to meet todays challenges. Bravo and five stars for a masterpiece.
Humanity at it's best  May 28, 2004
Rich or not Mr. Jonas presents his life as a simple philosophy stressing that our true self is the supreme truth utilizing biblical priciples as a bedrock saving humanity from itself. Humanity can change by creating compassion and better human beings based on the ultmate goodness of God and Man.

Self realization based on ones ideas and understanding of God as the supreme teacher who rules over the universe leads to a meaningful life whereby God loves us all..

Keep on cleaning the mirror Mr. Jonas, your lucid down to earth style symbolizes the harmony with oneself and with others..your universal yearning based on good works and employing others can indeed only be actualized in a free society such as the USA a lesson to be learned in these murderous times..
