Publisher's Summary

A heartwarming series of stories and practical wisdom on entrepreneurship and wealth in the vein of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, written by a financially independent father for his ambitious son.

Soon after he opened his vineyard for business many years ago, the Wealthy Gardener noticed a puzzling fact. Everyone wanted money, but only a few people managed to accumulate it. The reason, he realized, is that most people focus on short-term gains instead of achieving lasting wealth. 

As he grew old and aware of his dwindling time on this Earth, the Wealthy Gardener began to share his hard-earned wisdom with the financially troubled in his community, patiently mentoring those who asked for his practical advice on the ways of prosperity. 

The parable of the Wealthy Gardener is far more than an admonishment to earn more or spend less; it is about timeless principles. As his lessons reveal, financial freedom is a means to power and control over our lives. Without money, we are subject to the demands and whims of others. With money, we are sheltered from the storm, and we can extend that shelter to our loved ones.

Poised to become an intimate financial classic, The Wealthy Gardener will inspire listeners to find their own noble purpose and relieve their money worries once and for all. No matter your income level, skillset, or unique economic disadvantages, the lessons in this book will show you the path forward. All you need is the will to work, the desire to succeed, and the motivation to learn.

a new timeless financial guide

this book has the perfect balance of interesting stories, analogies, and correct principles of success. written as advice from parent to child. I wish I would have been raised with these principles and I'll definitely raise my kids with these principles. Very motivational to hear the realistic perspective that one has to put in extraordinary effort to yield extraordinary results. The extraordinary results are within reach. thank you John Soforic! I'll be listening to this book again.

It's okay, nothing really new.

If you read a lot of book about building wealth or personal development, this one won't have any big hidden nuggets. Chapter 5 which is over an hour of the 13 hour audio book, is really what you want to hear. If you've read The Secret, Rich Dad Poor Dad, and other similar books this is redo of those all rolled together.

I found the narrator to be annoying because he has an English accent and he was a bit slower than I like so I had to speed up the play speed.

Best Wealth Creation Book I've Read

I've read/listened to over 40 books in the last year or so far this one has been my favorite. The stories are very helpful in keeping you interested in the lessons and the lessons are many. No need for me to write a book for my kids, this has already been done with the Wealthy Gardner. I'm starting it again today and will listed over and over to keep my focus in the right areas.

This has changed my life.

My wife’s ex-husband recommended this book to my brother. When the book was dropped off my step son just handed it to me. I forgot it was meant for my brothers hands. This book has not only changed my life but given me a playboy to help me teach my children how to shape their own prosperous lives.

Life changing

Every high school senior should be required to read this book before entering the “real” world.

Understanding the character traits of the successful and wealthy are not spoken about enough and this book explains this so well.

Share this book with an 18 year old and change their life!

Couldn’t have asked for more!

I actually loved the reader on this book. I found his voice so engaging even though it sounded a little more old fashioned. The book itself was amazing and really broke down everything into simple and understandable parables. Great read for others seeking financial education.

the basics of financial freedom

this books gives you the basic steps for achieving financial freedom. is easy to read. I recommend it for children as well. but it is good for everyone, beginners will be help to find the path to financial freedom and more experience persons can have a revision to what they already know, also there are some things that they have missed along the way.

On a par with Rich Dad Poor Dad

The Wealthy Gardener is an excellent book on wealth building, and is on a par with Rich Dad Poor Dad. I think it will become a classic.

Changed My Life

I’m a true believer that the level of impact information has on your life is highly dependent on your willingness/readiness to receive it.

This book fell into my lap at the right time in my life, having a major impact on how I navigate my 40’s and beyond.

From beginning to end this book is brilliantly delivered.

I keep coming back to it whenever I feel like I need realignment in my life.

A worthy read.

Loved every aspect of this book. Everyone is bound to come out with a lesson learnt or relate on more than one level. It's not just another money making book but instead engulfs us with getting intouch with who we're, in this wealth journey.
