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.

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.

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).

Timeless Lessons (and gifts) Inside

The story was brilliant in teaching. While the quality of the speakers voice isn’t to today’s standard, he had just the right voice to coney the messages contained. Do read and embrace.

Reading Dry and boring

The information in the book is relevant. The speaker and/or reader was dry and boring which made me want to go to sleep. I'm comparing this book to the alchemist which is really unfair but, this book is still worth purchasing because the information valuable.

Great book - short and sweet

Narrator seemed a bit tired and raspy, but the book was an excellent reminder on some key aspects of building wealth. Thoroughly enjoyed and wouldn recommend.

Follow similar format as Richest Man in Babylon and The Greatest Salesman in The World. So if you liked those, you'll like this book.

Enjoyed overall, some criticism

I enjoyed the positive thinking aspect of the book and understand the general sentiment, however I can't help but wonder how this applies if one occupies a less privileged identity. Can this really be applied to those who are not white, straight cis males?

Surely it overlooks societal limitations that come into play like race, gender, etc. It feels reductive in this way, suggesting that if one experiences discrimination or lives in an oppressive system that this could all be changed by more positive thinking and asking for help? I'm trying to take in the overall message of the book, but notice this question keeps popping up in my head.
