    "Wonderful ... A 'Must Read'!"

    This fabulous book is a philosophical look at money ... and shows that you must do what you love to do, in order to earn money to any large degree. It allows you to learn about your own relationship to money and what it really means to make a contribution to others.

    This book changed my life for the better ... and I hope that you find value in it, too.

    "A Great Find!"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book! I felt like I was there being the young man especially when The Instant Millionaire asked for $25,000. Where will I get this from? ah, young man! That's where our journey begin!

    Is it fact, faith, belief, knowledge or discovering our own unbelieve in our abilities is the journey in solving our most anonying question. Where, how and what is my dream?

    Take a listen and discover yourself - I think you'll find, like me, the question is just the beginning.

    "Great insights"

    If I had rated this after the first listen I probably would have given it 3 stars, but when I was driving and was going to listen to a book my 10 year old daughter always wanted "Instant Millionaire" So after about the 5th listen on a road trip "I heard it!" We have both since listened to it again a number or times.

    "Recommended Reading/Listening"

    One of the subjects "The Instant Millionaire" deals with is how important thoughts are. I can understand how some might see the proposed ideas as crazy, but if you listen with an open mind, you might actually get something out of it. The most important result of listening to this is it makes you think (in a good way).

    To me, this title is an exaggerated mixture of "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill and "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen R. Covey (both wonderful and highly reccomended buys).

    And yes, the background music and narrator are cheesy at times, but you should not be listening to be entertained. It is for giving a different perspective on life and how to get what you want out of it (beyond what you have been taught all your life).

    "Comforting Psycho-babble for the Struggling"

    "I'm getting better every day in every way" --say this 50 times a day and you'll be a millionaire in 6 years. This book is full of emotional crap and short on specifics. Things like education,experience,training, social standing, availability of financing and reasoning ability are inconsequential, according to this book. Sorry, I don't think so.

    This book reminds me of "Deep Thoughts with Jack Handy" from Saturday Night Live". I found myself laughing out loud while listening to some of this hokey drivel.

    I'll give the book some credit on its "don't worry be happy" advice. That probalby is good business advice. Thin skin leads is most likely not a business asset.

    "Loved every minute of it!"

    I couldn't stop listening, and for me the narrator's voice is everything and his was perfect!

    "Good story great message"

    I enjoyed this book. It has s great message and was told in an entertaining way. The only complaint I have and it's a minor one is that often I could hear the reader breathing deeply between sentences. It took away from the book a little.

    "A Dragging Story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I probably would not recommend this. It appears to me to be a story written by someone who read, Think and Grow Rich and then decided to rewrite it in a story form. While the principles are good, they are better written in other books and the story seems to drag.


    What didn’t you like about Marc Allen’s performance?

    The whisper style of reading was annoying to me. I am sure this is just a personal preference. However, I did not like it.


    Could you see The Instant Millionaire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not at all!

    "Your Aha Moment "

    Great book! Truly Revealing!!! This will be a Classic!!! Even though it seems slow and calm at first, I would urge the listener to continue listening... it will be worth it!
