The Trick to Money Is Having Some!

In this book, Stuart Wilde shows you that money is merely a form of energy, and that the difference between having it and not having it is merely a small but subtle shift in consciousness (in fact, one woman claims she won $1.7 million in the lottery using the techniques presented within these pages).Like his other highly successful books, this work is chock full of useful ...more

The trick to money is having some?
With Stuart Wilde, it's no trick!
It's all play, playing with energy.
A man of great humor, the night I began reading the book, I laughed so much so that I nearly rolled off the couch! And what was so funny? The reference to the root of all evil, money. Of the guy who coined that line, Wilde said, "He just flat out didn't have any!"
As the book progresses, examples of dealing with money are rife. Each time I retrieve a penny off the sidewalk, I visualize Wilde st

It's difficult to review this book. From how it's written I'd probably give it 2 or or 3 stars. It's basically a kooky book on changing your attitude towards money. However, like those kooky quit smoking books, it actually works. It did with me - my income has gone up over 50% since I read it the first time (a year ago). Basically he convinced me that there's plenty of money in the world, and I should just ask for more. So I just put my hourly rate up to a fairly ridiculous level (for me) and it ...more

Stuart Wilde is a brilliant spiritual author, whose humorous take on everything leaves the reader unable to take himself or herself too seriously, even about something as dead serious as money. This book inspired me to let go of some old limiting beliefs I have about the acquiring and having of money. I found the nerve to finally give myself a raise! If you're working on prosperity and financial issues, read this book.

An excellent look at money from a metaphysical point of view. Stuart Wilde has a provocative view of this topic and might just change the way you think about money and having some!

This is required reading to help you to remove any head trash or limiting beliefs about money, success, and your ability to climb financially. I heard about Stuart Wilde recently, and I'll be buying the rest of the Taos Quintet shortly.

This book helps you remove any "caps" on your ability to earn, or any negative beliefs about being wildly successful. Much of the stuff we were either brainwashed with or coaxed into believing as kids and teenagers about success needs to be removed before we can e

Good points:
When your whole focus is on survival, there’s no time to thrive.
the importance of seeking your own approval only
The story of picking up a penny on all fours in muddy puddles in a suit and turning it into a British custom story to his tourist guests, shows how any situation is acceptable, as long as the mind accepts it.

"In fact going slowly and savouring life as you go allows you to grant the journey more meaning. To hurtle along at breakneck speed is at times fun. But it ought to be

I love the flow of this book. It's not like other books that seems to just spit out information to you, it's more personal and intimate. It's very humorous and it actually feels more like a transcription of a seminar, which I love because it feels a little more interactive and it keeps me intrigued. I had a hard time putting it down.

This is one of the best books on metaphysics, spirituality, and money! The biggest thing this book helped me realized is how to effectively release resistance toward

Recommends it for: anyone intested in metaphysics, self help, law of attraction
One of Stuart Wilde's most humourous books. Written in the late 80's yet not dated, this book covers beliefs we hold that may need to be changed and actions to take to make the needed changes, all while being seriously funny.

What I liked: It is a light hearted look at the metaphysics of easy money. Serious topic, but delivered in a fashion that bypasses all your objections and gets straight to the heart of things.

What I didn't like: The illustrations are somewhat dated.

I give this book a 5 out o

Wilde has some great thought and philosophies and he has some quirky thoughts and philosophies. This book has a mixture. It does, however, give a different perspective on money. Is it accurate and a truth? I don't know.

Very strange book, mixing humor - the law of attraction and irreverence all into a simple package. I liked the view, and it explained some of the phenomenon that I have recently experienced with money.

Wilde is funny and intelligent, and will help you examine your beliefs about money to see if you are limiting yourself though negative programming. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would, and I will definitely read more by Wilde.

While there is nothing really new in Wilde's books, I love how funny they are. Recommend.

I've read this book a couple times. Stuart's writing style isn't for everyone, but he does have a way of thinking outside the box that I like. A very worthy read in the "money" genre.

Great style of writing, although not for everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Stuart Wilde provides a great view of money from an energy perspective.

A very good book about making money. What the book lacks in structure, is made up in enthusiasm and charisma. A good read for those down in the dumps with money and need a burst of energy.
