This book has been a direct inspiration for the documentary “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne and the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill and tells you everything as rules rather than philosophy and tells you that if you want to become rich than the guidelines mentioned in the book has to be followed as it is rather than being doubted upon.
The book confidently claims that the theories mentioned in the book if followed step by step with extreme belief and faith can make you achieve whatever you want to achieve in life.
The book deals with the method that whatever you think and say has meaning and just by manipulating with your thoughts and words inside you can actually change the reality outside. Most people think that what they are thinking does not have any meaning but whatever they are thinking of is actually creating a reality for them. The book tells that the mind is actually divided into two parts - conscious and subconscious mind and whatever data is fed into subconscious mind starts to come true with time with a due process of repetition.
The book does help and the book is really a guide for anyone who dreams of ever becoming rich. I think that most people who have read the book found the book to be ludicrous because they would doubt the authenticity of the author and whether what he is telling is true or not.
Again the entire theory seems like wishful thinking where anything that you think can come true which was also the basis of “Law of Attraction” preached in the documentary “The secret”. The documentary told the same things but they explained it better with the help of examples and personal experiences of people to which people responded more positively.
The book, however, requires multiple reading before it starts affecting your psyche and I have read it multiple times to claim that it has helped me tremendously. I was never a big earner but then I gave two years of my life to know more about the fact that how to get rich and along with the theories of Napoleon Hill, the advice of Sir Walter Wallace mentioned in this book helped me in earning more money every year.
I feel more in control of the mind. However, controlling your mind is not an easy thing to do and there are multiple books written on the same subject. An entire science has been developed to understand the subject and two scholars from Standford has actually developed a method in which you can reprogram your mind to make it think whatever you like. It’s called NLP, the full form of which is Neuro-Linguistic Programming. A free mind, in my opinion, is the more prone to negative thoughts, which this book advocate, is the biggest hurdle when it comes to becoming rich. Lack of self-belief and trust in oneself is the reason one does not trust things outside and hence ruins his own life by doubting every other thing in this world.
I would suggest that whenever you read this book, read it with an open mind and try to follow rules for three months at least before discarding them forever. They may not work for you, but I still reiterate that just because they won't work for you does not mean that the bits of advice given in the book are not valuable. They have worked for me and I really hope they will work for you too.
Author has written this book before 100 year and it is still applicable today...
I am really impressed by the work of author as he says this is not philosophical book it is pragmatic book...
You must have to read this book at least 5 times to grasp the ideas of this book then you will able to connect all chapters , once you get that idea what author is trying to say... You can not deny to his point of view...
Though it is practically hard to follow advise he tell in this book but that is the point.. author is helping us to become more than we are.. and will will explain very beautifully how to do that...
Buy only if you are willing to read it atleast 5 times and committed to follow it life time...
I recommend everyone who is inspired to do more in their lives to read this, as it is a life changing book.
Now why I actually liked this book?
Especially the point it highlights make you think in different ways so that you can make your further desisions right and work on them. Good words by the author helped me and I think it could help you too

On the one hand it adopts a mystical approach to the topic while at the same time asking the reader to refrain from supporting charities or doing any charitable work. It is rambling and shambolic and lacks focus and direction.
Spend your money on Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohn, Bob Proctor, James Allen or David J. Schwartz...you'll be glad you did.
Since reading it, I can honestly say that my business has picked up and 'things' have started to happen; so go ahead read it and put what it says into action. As the author clearly states if you follow his formula to the letter you will not fail. What have you got to lose?
Thank you :)
I enjoyed reading the book, read it again and I have decided to do exactly as the book says... I can do that, I'm a pretty disciplined person.
Last year I bought a diet book, followed the instructions, changed the way I eat, lost weight, kept off the weight and lead a healthy balanced life and look great. I wrote a review after the results and stand by that review.
I am really excited about this book because if this works like the diet book did my life will be amazing. I will update this review after some significant positive changes to help with your buying decision.
Nice way of putting it that if you want to help yourself you should help others, and it's better to be cooperative rather than competitive.
I also think some of this is very subjective, which I disagree with on this school of thought. to say that the study of disease can't help people be healthier is just crazy. There are laws and concrete facts in our universe and however you think you can't change these. You should just learn to use your mind to work around them. This kind of thing was mentioned a few times and it strikes me as kind of delusional. Also he says that readers don't need to read another book on getting rich because everything is included in this as a science. I think some of the things he says could be disputed, and it's surely worth reading more (and more recent) and in greater detail.
The starting point for anyone who needs to change their mindset on how to get more money in to their life.
