Having read many of the books this is based on, i didn't learn much new information. Some of the ideas in here are excellent: create wealth with ideas, not through stepping on other people, work productively etc. Other concepts are more like 'the Secret" and it hasn't worked for me...yet.

I'd say this is good for teens who are just getting their feet into the financial world.

I used to read in auto pilot without thinking about the information presented. This book falls in with books similar to 'The Law of Attraction'. While your thoughts do lead to your actions... there isn't real evidence that they 'create'.

You can think about money all you want. It doesn't mean it'll show up at your door.

I carried this book around in my purse to read whenever I had to wait somewhere. It has very short chapters of a page or two, which made it nice to just pick up here and there to read. Comprised of a variety of famous motivational authors, it has a wonderful collection of wisdom.
