Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author and comedian-turned-motivational speaker Kyle Cease shows how your obsession with money is actually preventing you from living the life of your dreams.

"I can't afford that."
"Now's not the right time.... I need to save up."
"Quit my job? Are you nuts?!" 

Sound familiar? Money is one of the biggest excuses we make to not go after what we really want. Our fixation with money - the desire for more of it, and the fear of not having enough of it - is often really just a longing to feel safe. But this obsession with money is coming at a much bigger cost: our sanity, our creativity, our freedom, and our ability to step into our true power. This book is about eliminating the need to seek safety through the illusion of money, and learning to see ourselves for the perfection that we are - so that we can bring our gifts to the world in an authentic way, and allow ourselves to receive massive, true abundance as a result. Kyle Cease has heard excuses like the ones above countless times at his live events, and he has shown people how to completely break through them. In The Illusion of Money, he shares his own experiences, as well as practical tools to help listeners understand their ingrained beliefs and attachments to money, and how they can tap into our infinite assets and talents.  

"After 25 years as a successful comedian, actor, transformational speaker, author, and junior-league amateur bowler, I've experienced many times how chasing money is not an effective way to create an abundant and fulfilling life. The most alive I've ever felt was after I left my comedy career at its peak to become a transformational speaker. I left tons of guaranteed money and so-called security for a complete unknown. It was terrifying - but what was on the other side of that terror was a completely different life that is not only more abundant financially, but has more freedom, more ease, more passion, more impact, and more joy." (Kyle Cease)

Listen Again & Again

This book makes you think differently. Much better than his previous book, hard to believe it's the same author.

Not much substance yet

I agree with the concepts that the author brings up, but the text is not put together in a profound, interesting or new way.

So far, there have been just a couple of well phrased ideas. So I'm gonna keep listening and see how it goes. Other than that, it's completely over hyped and superficial.

Could've Used a PDF

I listen to audible when driving so books heavy on exercises work best with an accompanying PDF or portion of the book's website dedicated to audio listeners. I can't do a written exercise while on the freeway and him saying, "Pause the audio now to do the exercise" is not helpful because I still have 45 minutes left on my commute. I would have to go home and try to find that section in the earlier part of the book, lose my current place and basically have to relisten to the whole thing again while just sitting at home with a notebook, which is completely unrealistic for the way my life works. It would be great if the exercises were listed in a PDF or page of the website and I could go right to them because I really wanted to do the exercises but for it to take an addition 4 hours of hunting for each one is not a great use of time.

If you actually want to take action on this book, I would purchase the book rather than the audio since the author didn't do as much for audio listeners as most authors do these days.

All that being said, it was a very enjoyable listen. There were a few repeated jokes that we not as funny the 3rd time around but actually made me LOL the first time. If you are planning to listen while near paper and pen, it could work out for you.

You will love this book.

This book is a 10! Not only is he funny and entertaining to listen to, Kyle has shared some very deep wisdom to help shine light on how we view and think of money. I own the hardcover and just wanted to get this version for humor and keeping a reminder in my ear while I drive.

Fantastic book

Wow I was really happy that I ve chosen this book

I’m young entrepreneur who got his highs and lows in the money situation, and actually understanding the vibration and getting to accept the process not the chase of the money, but rather who you are becoming opens up many opportunities

This is a great book for anyone who is stuck on the topic of money in any sense. Much more depth in content than I expected, amazingly surprised. I have grown a lifetime in just a few hours.

Thank you Kyle!!
