    "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.

    "A lot of stuff in a small package"

    Packaging this information in a parable form is unique. An amazing amount of information in a very short audio book. I had listened to several other books on the subject before listening to this one, and I would recommend the same. What I found this audiobook did for me was to cement in and clarify several of the ideas presented by others on this subject. I would think if you started with this, several of the more subtle messages might be lost. As something to tie it all together, I thought this was excellent.

    The parable is presented in the style of an old time radio story. This presentation style might not work for everyone, but I really enjoyed it.
