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

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.

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.”

This is an easy read with tons of great advice. In this tumultuous economic world it is imperative that you read this book or others like it and read them NOW and apply the principles to your economic life. Practicing these principles and getting out of debt have made our lives so much happier and peaceful.

This would be an easy read for anyone that doesn't usually enjoy financial books since its in a story format. I found it very informative, inspiring and motivating. It motivated me to take my finances to the next level. I'd definitely recommend this book to everyone.

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.

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.

Potential reader, meet Paul Smith who has an entitlement attitude in the beginning. Next, meet Mary Sessions who has an abundance attitude who will play the role of mentor and guide in Paul's journey of unshackling himself from the bondage of debt.

Paul wants a quick fix. Accordingly, Sessions offers Paul $2 million at 8% after he has mastered the four laws of financial prosperity:

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

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.

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.

I gave it 3 reviews because it did start out interesting, however I stopped reading it as we're following another finance book that is working out better for us.
