But he acknowledges that.
I really liked this book. I'm not sure if it will help me get rich or not, time will tell, but I think it will help regardless.
One thing he says repeatedly that I agree with - whether I do get rich of not - it's up to me.
This is not a technique book, i.e., a book that says this is how you buy real estate or stocks or own a business or whatever.
What he says is that you need to program your mind to allow you to be successful in doing those types of things, or whatever vehicle it is that you choose to get rich.
One point he brings up[ continually is that he's rich, you're not, and this is the foundation he set up for himself and other rich people have set up for themselves to get rich.
The people who didn't like the book I suspect are not rich, and so have no basis to claim that what he says isn't true.
In fact much of what he said rings very true for me, in that it's more about attitude and desire rather than technique.
In fact, he claims that all the technique in the world won't help you get rich without the proper attitude towards money and making money.
Witness lottery winners who can't hold onto their money - they don't have the "rich" mindset, and most times find themselves back to the level of wealth that they had before their lottery winnings.
The book is about the Millionaire mind, not the "Techniques and strategies that made millionaires millionaires."
I highly recommend it. Even if in the end you choose not to get rich, I think there are some valuable life lessons that apply to everyday life regardless of one's aspirations.

What did you like about this audiobook?
I wanted to believe - in Harv Eker - I really did. I have read many books on wealth building and self-improvement, and I have been very successful by following the principles taught by authors such as Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, Napolean Hill, and Robert Kiyosaki, among others. I have applied their principles and found that they work. But these other authors provide something that Mr. Eker does not - substance.
The first 187 pages of this book are filled with shallow generalities and soundbites such as: "Rich people are bigger than their problems. Poor people are smaller than their problems." I don't disagree, but there is nothing to back up these simple "wealth principles" and little in the way of direction for implementation.
Still, this book could be an adequate primer for those who have had no introduction to the genres of wealth-building and self-improvement -- except for the continual pleadings to visit the author's website and attend his seminars. Yes, I know that authors in many fields often write books as a means to promote themselves and their other products, but I have never seen a book, other than giveaway promotionals, that so blatantly pushed the author's other products while providing so little in return. Like an infomercial, this book continually tells you what you could experience if you would only attend his seminar. And all those website freebies promised throughout the book? You must give him your name and e-mail address before he'll let you in. And after you do that, you must provide a credit card and pay a $100 deposit for that free seminar.
I'm returning my book tomorrow and getting my money back. For the same amount of money you can get BOTH "Maximum Achievement" (Brian Tracy) AND "Think and Grow Rich" (Napolean Hill). Neither is an infomercial in disguise.
Oh, and what comes after those first 187 pages of fluff? A five-page invitation to visit the registration-required website and attend the credit card-required seminar, a four-page advertorial for the same seminar (still no mention of a credit card here), a two-page lecture to "share the wealth" by committing to tell at least one hundred people about the book (or buy the book for them!), and a four-page list of seminars, home learning programs, and instructions on how you can hire Harv to speak at your own event.
Come on, Harv - I don't fault you for building your own wealth through seminars, CDs and speaking engagements, but please don't charge us $20 for your catalog. Give us something we can use!
