Contrary to the connotation of affluence as just wealth/money this book really attempts to bring forth a consciousness/awareness of allowing all types of abundance in various areas of your life - Wealth being fulfillment, happiness, satisfaction balanced with the material world and goals. In some respects I found it a bit too short and concise on these principles... it's a bit too "easy" and light... but, in the same respect I find myself referring to this and other books by Deepak when I need t ...more

This is a nice small book (a mere 104 pages), and it purports to be potentially life-changing.

Who is Deepak Chopra? He’s a guru of our times; he’s published tons of books; and he’s adored by countless thousands of people.

Why? I picked up this book at the local library to find out why.

Deepak wants us all to be rich! Rich in material wealth. Rich in physical health. Rich spiritually. And by absorbing the ideas in his book, we can achieve all this!

Isn’t it astounding? And to think, all that wisd

The author encourages us to read this book multiple times to really absorb its teachings. After a first read, I am definitely going to read this again. A great book to help set a positive tone for the new year, and the remaining years of ones life.

Many of us are accustomed to expecting and planning for scarcity in our lives - to ration our own energies and affluence as if they are finite. This then becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy- If you are miserly, you will lead a life driven by depravatio

My psychologist recommended this book. I like the idea that what we focus on creates our reality (it's true that I have to focus on writing to be a successful writer), but I was distracted by the fact that the last 10% of the book is just a list of other Deepak Chopra books, audio books, etc. I might want to spend my money on. No thanks.

Or maybe that's part of the lesson as well? Maybe we should all spend 10% of our time making it easy for other people to give us money.

I have read most of Deepak Chopra's books. They are always life affirming and give you a new perspective on life.

I learn something new about myself and I hope am becoming a better person. Note that the title says "a richer life". That does not always mean money and a life lived well is always richer.

I would recommend it to help guide you to a new way of thinking and approaching life in the future.

This is a teeny little volume that was recommended to me by a friend who has money, so I ordered it on Amazon, and to be quite honest, the jury is still out. It's quite a fast simple read with principles for every letter of the alphabet.

The instructions in the book say to read the whole thing very quickly, then make it a part of your daily routine to read 5 pages a day to internalize the principles into your subconscious. That's why I'm undecided... it will take time to see manifestations of af

I found this book to be written in easy-enough-to-read Spanish that I was able to follow the gist of most of the parts that I read. It is easy to pick up and put down again because it is written in very short chapters, many of which correspond to letters of the alphabet, as in "A is for...."

This was ok but not Chopra's best. He talks about changing your mindset to realize the abundance that is already in your life and how to encourage more to come. I enjoyed his meditations on love more than this.
I really enjoyed reading this book for it FOUND ME at that perfect moment. Very easy to read and understand it's concepts. Deepak always knows how to write so beautifully and he knows how to take you into places i've never been before, and he knows how to paint really pretty imagery.

This book lists out the A - Z steps for creating affluence. The word affluence here refers to every positive things in our life not only money. Each step is a passage which the author suggests the reader to read everyday till the concepts are inherited by the reader's mind.

The author also takes reference from his inspirations - Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Wayne Dyner. Here the reader need not take any effort to implement these principles in his life. The author suggests that simply reading it and

I’m embarrassed by how much books like this one inspire, delight and soothe me. On flight home (part 1 from Detroit to Chicago) I focused on “T for Transcendence”, hoping to avoid a replay of the panic attack I had on the plane two weeks earlier. I wasn’t able to thoroughly transcend so instead I gave “T for Thanks” for the large quantity of pills (Valium, Xanax, and other assorted modern day “dolls”) we managed to inherit on our journey. After popping a couple of those I slept through the turbu ...more

I am all about creating prosperity and I believe whole-heartedly in the power of attraction - I live it abundantly on a daily basis. However this book seems to be reincarnated from material that has been hashed out over and over - but it wasn't written nearly as well as it was the first time.
I think Dr. Chopra has made some excellent contributions to the literature but to me this book felt like a throw away that would have never been published had it not had Dr. Chopra's name on it.

Shelves: spiritual
Very condensed book with quick recaps of topics- Quick read - recommended you read fully first then revisist about 5 pages daily to kind of drill and kill the practical insights we loose site of. Great principles with anyone who has a desire to do good - reminder to not loose site of key daily principles while working towards your goals.

Book not fab but good highlights of things you can remind yourself of on a daily basis.
Dec 17, 2014 Waseem rated it it was ok
Very vague - condensed and kinda all over the place to his other works in my opinion. - hard to follow but because it's repetitive and kinda a rehash to his other already published work prior to thus - it's a good bite size reminder /... But that's pretty much about it

To Our Continued Success!

According to author Deepak Chopra, “Affluence includes money but is not just money. It is the abundance, the flow, the generosity of the universe, where every desire we have must come true, because inherent in having the desire are the mechanics for its fulfillment.” Creating Affluence has sold over 300,000 copies.

I purchased this book on CD 3 or 4 years ago. Every time I listen to it the concepts make more sense. It's amazing to me to ponder on the power of our thoughts to create measurable change in our experience. The more I've applied these principles in my life, the more magic and abundance have illuminated my reality.

Read/Listened to the audiobook which is only an hour long. Opening comments and A-Z comments were interesting. The rest, micro-sub-particle-alchemy, was less so. In my mind this was a good reminder that our mind holds the key for opening doors to new realities and that money does not necessarily equal prosperity.

This is such a slim little book that it's easy to dismiss his writing here as trivial, yet upon further re-reading, I've decided there's much to be gleaned from someone so well versed in the spiritual world yet grounded by training in the physical/scientific world.

Nothing really original here. A brief overview of the law of attraction, following the child's book gimmick of alphabetical topics. I did pick up one idea that I hadn't really heard of or understood before, but ultimately regretted buying this one for $3.

A quick read to boost your mood. Something to be read at least once a month like the Four Agreements. If you don't want to read a full-on self-help book, read this. You'll get the inspiration.

This book reminds me where my priorities are. I have taken Chopra's advice and I am reading a little bit everyday so that I can "metabolize the knowledge" that I get from it!

Another great book from Deepak as he ties in quantum physics and spiritually. With quantum physics we now know scientifically that our thoughts co-create our reality.
