The back cover on Eker's book proclaims "Give me 5 minutes and I'll predict the rest of your financial life" or something to that effect. Well I'll say "Browse through this book for 30 minutes and you'll realise what an expensive piece of garbage this is." I brought this book all thanks to the positive and flattering reviews I read on various sites. But now I supect that these reviews are fudged up. Maybe Eker or one of his cronies have spent a day writing them trying to mislead buyers. What do I write about the book? Suffice to say it has those zillion times repeated platitudes of "Think Big", "Be committed to being rich", "Focus on opportunities" and making positive affirmations to oneself. But I'd not even call it a good motivational book. Much better motivational books are available in the market (Robin Sharma is a good one). I have wasted my money. Please do not waste yours.

Publishers Weekly, 2005-02-14 Eker's claim to fame is that he took a $2,000 credit card loan, opened "one of the first fitness stores in North America," turned it into a chain of 10 within two and a half years and sold it in 1987 for a cool (but somewhat modest-seeming) $1.6 million. Now the Vancouver-based entrepreneur traverses the continent with his "Millionaire Mind Intensive Seminar," on which this debut motivational business manual is based. What sets it apart is Eker's focus on the way people think and feel about money and his canny, class-based analyses of broad differences among groups. In rat-a-tat, "Let me explain" seminar-speak, Eker asks readers to think back to their childhoods and pick apart the lessons they passively absorbed from parents and others about money. With such psychological nuggets as "Rich people focus on opportunities/ Poor people focus on obstacles," Eker puts a positive spin on stereotypes, arguing that poverty begins, or rather, is allowed to continue, in one's imagination first, with actual material life becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. To that end, Eker counsels for admiration and against resentment, for positivity, self-promotion and thinking big and against wallowing, self-abnegation and small-mindedness. While much of the advice is self-evident, Eker's contribution is permission to think of one's financial foibles as a kind of mental illness-one, he says, that has a ready set of cures. 6-city author tour; 25-city radio tour.
