    I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered the book. Upon receiving it, I couldn’t put it down. This book is a full dose of downhome cowboy common moral sense combined with stuningly beautiful western photography. The book was purchased as a gift for a real cowboy friend of mine. This man who made much of his living on the back of a horse opened the book, paged through it and put it down. Within a minute or so, he picked the book up and paged through it again. He was hooked! The traditional wisdom and astonishing photography makes this book something you want to give your children and best friends. If you have any doubts look to the end of the book at the photo of the mounted cowboy carrying a calf in a snowstorm. If that doesn’t sell you, nothing will.

    This is a winning combination – gorgeous photography coupled with pragmatic advice. After 25 years in the brokerage/investment banking business, I was pleased to find an author whose feet were planted firmly in the rich, fertile soil of responsibility, ethics and honesty. There are many temptations in the fast and furious world of stocks and bonds; James P. Owen provides a well-written and sensible path through the wilderness. The linkage between the cowboy and the broker is a straighter line than many would imagine. Owen leads directly to the heart of some of the most pressing issues facing financial services professionals today. This is an outstanding read; I highly recommend it.

    Cowboy Ethics Appeals to a Spiritual Truth, June 15, 2005
    By 

    This review is from: Cowboy Ethics: What Wall Street Can Learn From The Code Of The West (Paperback)
    A copy of Cowboy Ethics, What Wall Street Can Learn

    from the Code of the West landed in my hands via a

    friend. Taking an honored spot on my coffee table,

    visitors and friends constantly pick up this book and

    pour over it. Some comment on the unique subject

    matter, others remark on the stunning visual design of

    the book; all who read it are riveted.

    For someone who loves spiritual, new age books and

    newsmagazines, Cowboy Ethics appeals to me in its

    universal truth of the ways of the Old West extending

    a handshake to Wall Street; an industry ripe for the

    opportunity of ethically-driven leadership. The idea

    of imbuing the new frontier of finance with the

    romantic, heroic integrity of the cowboy is not only

    an exciting possibility, but incredibly sexy, as well.

    Rich visuals and a compelling message make for a read

    that will fill both your mind and your soul.

    I’ve given this unusual book to many of my hard-to-shop-for

    friends, who always love it.
