I bought this and I found it excellent. It's over three hours long. I'm not drinking the kool-aid, either. I'm an entrepreneur with a passion for self improvement. I grew up with parents that provided poor role models for money, great role models for love and compassion. My Dad was born in the Depression and he never got over it. My Mom never met a dollar she didn't want to spend. I've worked hard to retrain my "programming" for the last five to seven years and my financial condition has improved gradually (not dramatically, but gradually and significantly), to the point now where I'm comfortable, but not yet "wealthy". I'm looking to break through to the next level.
This guy's insight is terrific and on-target. Some of the negative reviews written here are obviously not from people who listened to anything but the promo sound clip. If they did, they would have heard more content than they alluded to in their reponses. Much more.
This guy tells it like it is. If you're prepared to hear direct truth about how poor, middle and high income people think, then buy it. The two other books that profoundly changed my life are 1) Think and Grow Rich (Napolean Hill) and 2) Cash Flow Quadrant (Part of the Rich Dad/Poor Dad series by Robert Kiyosaki). This one's my new # 3.
Some key statements in this book:
To someone who says "Money isn't important" he replies, "You're broke, aren't you? And you have been broke for a long period of time, haven't you?"
Regarding aspiring to be "comfortable":
"You will never be rich or happy if you aspire to be comfortable. Aspire to be uncomfortable, to be in a continuous state of personal growth."
This book has given me more to change my life than anything I've experienced in a long time.
