Publisher's Summary

The precursor to The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, this book explores the full meaning of "wealth consciousness" with clear and simple wisdom. According to author Deepak Chopra, "Affluence includes money but is not just money. It is the abundance, the flow, the generosity of the universe, where every desire we have must come true, because inherent in having the desire are the mechanics for its fulfillment."

© Deepak Chopra; (P)1998 New World Library

    "Keeps Getting Better!"

    In so much of his writings, Deepak Chopra brings spriritual practices and beliefs that are more commonplace in the east to our stongly "left-brain" culture. He has an incredible talent for presenting it to us in a way that suits the western mind. When I first listened I would think, "Yes, that's right! Of course I should express gratitude! I know that!" However, the real value of this book lies not so much in these revelations at the conscious thinking level, but in repeated listening(or reading), as Chopra recommends. Then the full wisdom of the book gradually and mysteriously begins seeping into your soul. Then you will experience, as I am, an inner transformation occurring. And so, I continue to listen! Try it and you won't be disappointed.

    "not the slam dunk I'm used to"

    Yes, this is a cheep short book. I thought it would be fun. I'm a big fan of Dr. Chopra, but this isn't a very good book. Most of this information can be found in other books of his. He basically goes through the alphabet and lists terms that if you embrace will create affuence.... like A stands for ... B stands for...C stands for. If you want to buy your first Chopra audiobook I would recommend "Peace is the Way"

    Story
    "Another Deepak Chopra classic."
    If you could sum up Creating Affluence in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant, succinct, powerful.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is not a book of fiction, therefore there are no characters; but there are many quotes from the wise and famous throughout the ages.


    What does Deepak Chopra bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Deepak Chopra reads this book eloquently. His intelligence and humor come through beautifully. He clearly knows exactly what he is talking about and where to put the emphasis on his words. His reading is more like music, than a lecture.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. This is a perfect book for one sitting because it is only 55 minutes long. However, there is a natural break that you can make in the narrative about half-way through, when Deepak changes from the 25 step method for raising our awareness, to a more detailed consideration of physics and the 'spiritual' dynamics of the sub-atomic world.I found it useful to make this break. On the other hand I also took my Mp3 player to the gym yesterday and listened to the recording from beginning to end, as I walked 2.8 miles on the treadmill. That exercise took exactly 55 minutes, so the talk fitted perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    I think, while not essential, it would help to be a little familiar with the subject matter and vocabulary ahead of time. - I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve the quality of their lives.

    I'm not much of a reader but I am a great listener. I like to listen to an audiobook before I decide its worth buying the book in print.

    "Creating Affluence?"

    My bet is that you need to be in a meditative State to absorb the message in this book. It has good information in it but it's A to Z and numerical approach can turn you off. I like to listen to a book this short over and over because some times the smaller the book the more absorb-able and better the message. I like Deepak Chora's books that I have purchased in the past but this one will take some time to understand. Maybe I'm not open to its message yet.

    "Lightweight mush"
    Would you try another book from Deepak Chopra and/or Deepak Chopra?

    Yes as I have read others from him and enjoyed them. This book has no substance or clear suggestions or guidance.


    Would you recommend Creating Affluence to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, it is too fluffy and lightweight to be of any use


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No just the contents


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    "Too foreign to my western world view"
    Was Creating Affluence worth the listening time?

    I got tired of the book and quit. It was not practical enough and had a spiritualistic view.
