Great summary of a life changing book ...

Think cliff notes or executive summary. Great overview of a phenomenal book with life altering principles. If you want the entire book, this is not it...

Very short

I thought I was buying the entire book. This is but a short, very short section. The narrator was very dry and emotionless.

Waste of Money!

This is not the book/author I thought it was. 24 minutes of my life wasted. This should be titled, The Richest Rip-Off on Amazon! How can you piggy back off the cover and description of another's work and then advise not to get rich quick and practice honesty? Shameful!

wisdom at hand

contained on this book is great wisdom. Most will pass because ,being 6 simple rules,either their own belief that they intrinsically know this content. Or plain disbelief that the road out of ruin can be so simple.Its not however,for most,due to human nature rebellion toward disciplined spending. As in most things,they rather not have to think about what they do. This applies in all areas of life today. If one really thinks about it!

Not complete book.

Very misleading. Only 27min. Get the full version which is 4 hours. This was a waste of a purchase.

Not the full book

I bought this expecting the full book. Its 27 minutes long. It doesn't say in the title that it's a very abbreviated version which mislead me ad cost me a credit.

Narrator with the charisma of a wet sock. OK. basic rules for wealth. save 10%, Invest 20%, don't splurge or borrow excessively. be a good person
