The book is "over-described". It is not a method to make a seven figure income in seven years. Method and mechanics are not on the agenda. It does not describe any specifics on "how to do it", just a bunch of vague generalities.
The book is a "motivational"-- like a Brian Tracy, Zig Zigler, Dale Carnegie, Earl Nightengale, Napoleon Hill, etc. But, quality is laging well behind Carnegie, et al. (If you haven't read any of these guys, you would do better to read them first).
In sum: set goals; and the goal should be "get rich"; and that's how you make decisions in work life. The rest of the book is just a collection of war stories, some of which are of questionable believability, or lucky shots-- somebody in the right place at the right time. All of the typical buzz-lines are here:, work hard, do "copyrighting" (whatever that is); get into business, "buy low, sell high", do research on your business, and the same blah, blah, woof, woof, you will find in all of the "motivationals".
If you like that kind of thing, you will find this one a nice addition to your collection. I found the stories interesting (notwithstanding the low level credibiliy)
You would have a better chance of doubling or trippling your investment by putting your 20 bucks into some puts or calls (or both). Likelihood of "success" in this market, probably slightly better, and sooner.
For those who miss hearing Captin Kirk on the original Star Trek series, this is the book for you. The narration is almost unbearable. I set my ipod to a faster play back speed.
The content is good. Especially the part about deciding how much money you need and setting that as your goal.
