In The Course by Dennis Torres, we follow a professor's intelligent lectures on ethics and thoroughly insightful discussions with his students. The characters discuss various topics that reveal how to build wealth, attain balance, and live by one's morals. It allows us to partake in a university course that includes other MBA courses and provides practical and actionable steps for smooth application. You will receive conversational lectures on wealth, love, meditation, business, investing, controlling emotions, relationships, breaking habits, and maintaining an excellent work-life balance. How can one become wealthy even while earning a minimum wage salary? Does our society influence our beliefs about what is right or wrong? Can we build wealth while maintaining humane values? These questions and more like them are discussed thoroughly in the book.

Prepare for a deeply engaging and enriching experience as The Course contains practical steps, illustrative stories, and various questions that inspire critical thinking. I especially liked the story about the identical twin sisters born in Mexico, which helped me understand how acculturation and conditioning affect our thinking. One significant component of Dennis Torres' story that differentiates it from most self-help books is that several characters from different cultural backgrounds discuss how the professor's lessons are helpful for them. Thus, most of us, if not all, will find several relatable and applicable lessons. Its insights guide us to make smarter decisions and direct us to find happiness, growth, and inner peace. Make the time to experience the citadel of learning like no other in this narrative. You will be transformed and experience a life of distinction and personal excellence in all areas.
