Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Michael Phillips developed MasterCard as vice president of the Bank of California. He is the author of Honest Business and The Seven Laws of Money. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From AudioFile

The author/reader has some good ideas about why people get into trouble with money, along with advice and friendly insights that will make sense to most people right away. He gives listeners a deeper understanding of their bad habits, rather than just telling them what to do. There's a healing component to all of this, and perhaps a bit of redemption, all of it low-key, easy to listen to and consider. Because the focus is on becoming aware of and relaxed with one's money habits, the author's voice is a good fit–calm but not too Zen-like, and not at all pedantic. This enjoyable program encourages openness to new learning about one's relationship with money.

If you are looking for a book on how to accumulate the maximum number of green backs, this book is not for you. If you want a simple philosophy of money which will make you wealthy in more than just the material sense, buy this book and read it at least twice.
I first read this book almost 20 years ago, and every time I got greedy, and broke one of the Seven Laws of Money, I paid dearly for it.

This is one of the books I own two copies of, one for myself and one to loan out to others. It helps you to channel energy away from worrying about money to using and understanding money in your best way. Warning: It may change your life. And, like good wine, it ages well.

michael phillips is one of the most refreshing thinkers in the world of money and business. this book from the early 70's has much important wisdom for anyone concerned with the subject. the original by random house has been out of print for years and is well worth finding if you can get your hands on a copy. it's totally 70's san francisco, but is richer than the shamballa abridgement.

Format: Paperback
I first read this book several years ago and not too particularly impressed I put it on my bookshelf and forgot about it. The other day it literally fell off the shelf and landed at my feet. I had completely forgotten about the book. It's a short book; why not read it again I thought. I did and was captivated. What happened? I would have given it two stars before, now I'm giving it five. I changed: In the intervening years I have become somewhat financially successful. Back when I first read it I was looking for some method to make money and didn't find it in that book. Now I know there is none. All books are mirrors of their readers as are these reviews. You have learned more about me than you will ever learn about The 7 Laws from reading this review. What can I tell you? Read the book or don't. When you find that no method or technique ever really works then you won't need this book or any other.

Format: Paperback
I'm sure the author is a good guy with a big heart, but unfortunately this book is incredibly weak. It's very dated and in desparate need of editing (at one point the author says something about being philosophically against rewriting/editing--and man does it show). I assume consistent plugs by the Whole Earth Catalog and the Whole Earth Review got this book its notoriety, but it's hard to imagine how it has maintained its counterculture mini-classic status. Probably because for years it was the only alternative money book around (and it does have a great title). For much better financial advice and infinitely better writing, check out The Mindful Money Guide. It's wise, witty, and covers all matters financial--always with an eye to quality of life. (The book even has a section titled The Cosmic Laws of Money.)

I have just read this book for the third time, and got even more out of it than the previous two.

Phillips is a "hippie capitalist" and has refreshing wisdom about the traps money can land you in. The book is unrelentingly honest.

The Seven Laws of Money was written in the 1970's.
Nonetheless, it is a one-of-a-kind read for those who want inspiration and confidence
to succeed.
The book is written in an easy-to-read format and a manner that can make you laugh.
The book could help inspire teenagers in recovery from drug dependency gain confidence.

Format: Paperback
If you're looking for a book about making money or managing your money, go elsewhere; there are lots of books that cover those topics. This is a book about the psychological and philosophical and even mystical nature of money and the unexpected effects it can have on your life if you don't understand it. It's in plain non-sectarian English with illustrative poems and stories. It was written in 1974, so many of the hard numbers seem ridiculously tiny, the statistics no longer apply, and the description of the banking industry is hardly recognizable. There is also an occasional "word you can't say on TV," and a blase' attitude toward illegal drugs. However, the Seven Laws themselves and the stories and poems are still as relevant as ever.

It's hard to pick out a really representative quotation from a book that is really more of a collection than a unified work, but I think the following comes close:

"Say you've got the $100,000 that you desired. You are now the process that it took you to get there. If you had to sell dope, you're a dope dealer with $100,000. You don't just have $100,000. Because by then you're the shrewd dope dealer or you're the tough president of a junkyard, that's what you are... You will only have people who appreciate your money and your peers in the junk business as friends and their only concern is what's happening to the price of steel. You won't even read the front page of the Wall Street Journal -- you'll just turn to page 27 every day to check the stock prices."
