Basic financial principles in an easily digestible format.

Recommends it for: anyone who isn't filthy rich
This self-help book, cheesy as it is, was life changing for me. It basically got me to shake the cobwebs out of my head and start getting serious about money--something that was always this amorphous area of my life that I sort of just ignored.

There are two basic epiphanies I got from this book. The first was that the proper way to look at personal finances was not "spend vs. save" as I'd always thought (and was turned off by), but rather, "spend on things that appreciate vs. spend on things tha

Recommends it for: everyone. We're all either in debt or trying hard to avoid it, right?
Shelves: finance-business
Good Book. Got me motivated to incorporate the four laws into my financial life. Track, Target, Trim, Train. The thing that I got most out of this book is that I don’t have to stop spending…just spend differently…spend on things that appreciate, not depreciate. Also, this quote about becoming more knowledgeable about investing and accumulating wealth. “Success happens when preparation meets opportunity.”

Track, target, trim, train. If you can't measure it, you can't manage it. Straight forward advice given in the form of a story (it involves playing chess, so I think its extra cool). Basically, the first hurdle is to get your finances tracked and set goals. Next, you adapt your living habits so you can set better goals. Finally, you train yourself about other investments the have compounding interest, or real estate, or securities. ...more

I would recommend this to every couple. It has some great guidelines in here. My husband and I have read it twice and although we don't have any major debt, the concepts in here help establish a great financial foundation. Also - it's a quick read - only just over 100 pages. ...more

Review for the book “The 4 laws of financial prosperity” by Blaine Harris.
Aim of the book: to show that everyone who gets average salary can have a debt-free life and provide himself with prosper quality of life to the age of a retirement, and be able to retire when he/she choose to instead of when he/she have to.
Main idea: you have to live on less than you earn - it doesn’t mean to stop spending but just spend more wisely on assets that generate wealth. There are 4 laws to accomplish that: 1. T

Money will follow you forever. Learning to handle something that will be in your hands and control is wise and beneficial. I love to read financial books every now and then to keep up with the times and keep the information fresh in my mind.
There is valuable information in this book. The way that information is put out comes through a short little story of a man struggling and meeting a woman who has made it. Basically, in all, she mentors him to handle his money and he grows as a person. The w

After some figures were stated in the book my thoughts were: "It can't be that simple". I ran through the numbers again and again and several more times and it was true. Reaction like this only after one of the laws. Other laws were incredible too. My eye started to twitch after reading some facts and going through calculations.

Though the law that I liked the most, was the simplest one, it was... Not gonna spoil, but it was the first law.

Definitely recommend this book as a source for personal fi

You know, I actually enjoyed this book. Other books on finances and money have just been very, "Oh just pull out money from those stocks you forgot about," which is annoying to say the least. Not everyone has stocks just sitting around that were gifted to them and this assumption is disheartening.

Harris gets his finances in order is completely doable way, literally starting with him and his wife's income and lots of budgeting. It was simple and I definitely recommend reading this book.

This book explores the steps towards being financially free. Track your daily expenses, Target financial realistic goals, Trim your living expenses, & Train yourself in the power of compound interest. Spending less than you get is key! A goal that is not written out, is just a wish. Pay yourself first. Get out of debt. Earn interest vs pay it are all covered in this gem of a book.

This is one of the best financial self-help books ever. It’s easy and quick to read. I found myself taking pictures of paragraphs and sharing them and saving them for future use. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to change their mindset about money.

Nothing stunning or new and imperfections make this book not worth its price.

There's an incomplete sentence that ends chapter 10: "Likewise, the". Wow!

My only regret is not having friends or family tell me about saving as a child. Oh well, better late than never.

Everyone should read this book and adopt at least one or all of the laws. Very similar principals that Dave Ramsey teaches. Track, Target, Trim and Train.
