"I'm Seriously Impressed!
E-Motion, Strategies for becoming a millionaire within a year with no effort is what I've been searching for. After reading books by Robbins (Please, is this bloke for real?), Napolean Hill, (Too dated for my liking.) Lazy man's way to riches by Joe Karbo (Great stuff, but this is the year 2000.) Brian Tracey (Hey, now we're getting somewhere.) and numerous others. John R. Colt's book get straight to it with an awesome and effective way of tapping into your "Internal Guidance System". Put it this way, two weeks after buying the book, I've got the paperwork from the patents office to register my new enterprise. As a result of the Insight I've received form what I've learned form this book, I'm on my way to becoming a MILLIONAIRE. I kid you not!" -- Amzon.com Reader, February 11, 2000

From the Publisher

Is it possible to become a Millionaire within a year?

Absolutely!

What do the top ten richest people in the world have in common? They all achieved Millionaire status effortlessly within a year! And YOU can too...

Many people have become millionaires within a year effortlessly, many people will do it after you, and many people are doing it RIGHT NOW! You probably know some of these people, right?

You have probably asked yourself how they did it. What do they have that you don't have? Are they smarter or more ambitious? Hardly!

The only difference is that they chose to become millionaires and then they acted on that decision with specialized knowledge.

That's the whole difference. By coming to this Web Site, you have already made the decision and acted upon it. Now, I am going to give you that specialized knowledge...

This book is just a pamphlet that has been stretched with lots of open spaces into book length. The grammar and spelling mistakes are comical. I can't believe there was no proof reading done. Also, there is very little content.
The basic (and only) premise of this book(?) is that preparing the mind for success through positive visualization is very effective. Napoleon Hill in 'Think and Grow Rich' taught us that decades ago and in great detail with conclusive evidence. This book is so simplistic and short that one feels ripped off regardless of the price paid.
What are supposed to be the 2 strengths of the book, achieving wealth and doing it without effort are handled in the most inane way!!! The author says that the easiest way to One Million dollars is to either buy something for one million and sell it for two, OR (even more absurd) start a company, issue one million shares and sell ONE to a friend for a dollar thereby making you, the holder of the rest, a millionaire! The sheer lunacy of these 2 methods is self-explanatory. The author is playing with words to satisfy the bare minimum of the claim in the title.
In terms of the 'no effort' part, the author plays semantics with us again. His definition of 'effort' is doing something that you DO NOT like to do. Did we need to buy a book to learn this??? His solution is to get into something that you like to do and there will be no effort involved. There is still plenty of work to do. Call it what you want, some amount of work has to be done.
It is unfortunate that the book fails so badly. This is a great subject, not just for the achievement of financial goals, but to make your life better in general. Positive mental visualization is a well known and effective tactic. ...

This is a complete scam. This is a flyer with huge margins on all four sides of the page. There was evidently no proofreading of the book for spelling, grammar and context mistakes...., DO NOT TOUCH IT!

If this author is really a millionaire, then he could certainly afford to hire a copy editor to proof his work. I, you, nearly anyone with any intelligence could have written this garbled nonsense without trying. But let's overlook that for now. His message is basically "believe in yourself". How profound. How original. This is just another of example of "if I can fool enough people into buying my book because of the title, then I too can become a real millionaire with no effort."
Save your money and your time, unless you need a good laugh.

All of the reviews are either extremely negative, or extremely positive. Seems like the system really does work, if you care to have a good look and read through. The title of this "book" should be "Buy This Book & Make ME a Millionaire". Like a famous coach once said, "Success without character is like a meal without seasonings. It will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good."

This book offered no useful information whatsoever. There are better books out there to help you with the mindset of becoming a millionaire (see Mark Fisher's books). It was simplistic and impractical. Don't waste your time or money...

While this book does have some good points, the blatant typos and grammatical errors are absolutely distracting. It looks like it hasn't even been to editing in my opinion. The book is small (138 pages in a 5" x 8" cover) and it certainly wouldn't be worth the full price.
The author does make a few good points but he also jumped right from doing small things to a phrase of "By being careful I was able to grow my assets to tens of thousands of dollars." A little simplistic as if it happened overnight.
The books seems to be more about attitude than really helping guide someone who is interested in becoming a millionaire. If you can put up with the typos and grammatical errors and you want a book that might pump you up a tiny bit, then go ahead and buy it. If not, buy something more worthwhile.

How bad can a book be? God only knows, but I would say a quick look at "Becoming a Millionaire" by John R. Colt would be a good start. Set aside the awful chapter titles, the poor punctuation, improper use of capitalization and mediocre grammar. Even after you slog through that mess and think that it can get no worse, it does. Believe me, it does. It seems that the author has a vast command of the obvious and inane, though not so much so that he does not have to resort to unusual spacing and a number of blank pages at the end to fill 139 pages in this slim and vacuous volume. If self-help is involved then possibly the only person on the planet that could benefit from reading this book would be the author. If the glossy (but horribly printed) cover burned better I would suggest using it for kindling; since it doesn't, give it to your obnoxious brother in law for Christmas and let him suffer through this sad mess.
