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."

The author, Michael Phillips, really knows money. You can learn all about the energy of money, how it works in our world, and have fun reading it. This guy's writing voice is a blast and a hoot all at once. Read it for fun and be rewired.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
According to a story at the end of the book, the Seven Laws of Money started out as a pamphlet and was expanded to book length under the urging of a publisher.

Fine. Did Phillips expand the book in a conventional way by, say, expanding the discussion of the Seven Laws? No. There's all kinds of weird little drawings, questionable poetry by someone named Jug 'n' Candle and rambling stories that go on and on. I'm not sure if some of it isn't displaying well on my Kindle as I've never seen a printed copy. I can only talk about what I see on the Kindle.

I could say this is a very unconventional book about money and that would be an understatement. You're not going to get "mystical" advice like this from Dave Ramsey or Suze Orman.

Still, I'm going to give it the Kindle edition three stars. Why? Because the advice is probably sound. Evaluating it from an intuitive basis, it's appealing and makes sense. However, logically, everything from the way it's structured, to how it's written to the advice itself, it's a complete mess. To paraphrase a line from the book, only 2 percent of what we can see and experience is logical. This book is to address the other 98 percent.
