Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is packed with common sense, original insights into human change management, and practical advice about money matters. Seven ordinary people, addicted to bitching about their struggles to make ends meet, and convinced that their lives will never be much more than sheer slogs, enroll in a personal-development course that changes their lives. A philosopher-cabbie, a cynical hard-nosed Englishwoman and her estranged husband, a middling salesman and his boss, a café manager, and a hairdresser find themselves at the mercy of a teacher who refuses to pamper them with the usual, empty get-rich prattle. Toney Fitzgerald stands in front of the class with a message: There's little poetry in making money, and there's even less in poverty. In one hand he holds the hammer of reality and, in the other, the gauntlet of defiance.
Mixing fiction, experience and teaching, he leads them through ruthless self-examination, preparing them to break through the "bitch barrier" to the richer world beyond. Eventually, they face the most serious choice of their lives: either they will make the one, unbreakable, lifelong promise that will radically change the directions of their lives, or they will remain forever in a state of self-induced helplessness. Not all make it.

Lots of Fluff

I rarely fail to finish an audiobook, but this was the exception. It has a great concept but fails to deliver. I wish I could have learned more about the people and how they progressed (with practical examples). Instead, the book focuses on the psychological growth of the subjects. According to the book, in order to get rich, you must leave the "bitch matrix" and enter the "rich matrix." You must "really really want" (yes two reallies) it more than anything in the world. If there is anything of practical value, it comes after the 3 hour mark (when I gave up).

Very easy to relate to.

Very down to earth, and easy to relate their experiences to your own real life. I found it a good jolt to do something instead of finding excuses, and it gave me the tools to do that. So far have listen to it 4 times. Definitely buy it if you are looking to move forward in your life and start taking responsibility for your future.
