I would be willing (and did) to purchase this book solely for the Jim Rohn interview. Jim teaches you in this book that success is something that you attract by the person that you become...that if you work hard on your job, you'll make a living. But if you work hard on yourself, you'll make a fortune. Jim's teachings are excellent because he focuses on how you can progress from where you are right now...by taking small steps that consist of small disciplines. "Discipline weighs ounces and regret weighs tons." His message is that you don't need a revolution or do anything spectacularly dramatic for your self-esteem to start going off the scale...just make a commitment to any easy discipline..then another one and another one until you become unrecognizable as the mediocre person you may have been up until now. Just start with some little something to prove to yourself that you're going to develop a whole list of disciplines.
Jim talks about reasons. If you have enough reasons, you can do anything. If you have enough reasons, you'll read all the books that you need to read. You'll get up however early you need to get up. Sometimes we find it a little hard to get out of bed. We want to linger. Part of that is not just being tired, or weary, or a little bit poor nutrition, some of it is just lack of the drive in terms of having a long enough list of reasons to do it.
Jim was Tony Robbins' mentor. Tony adopted many of Jim's teachings. And, as you can see, they worked very well at catapulting Tony to centimillionaire status.
I highly, highly, recommend Jim Rohn's "7 Strategies for Wealth & Happiness", and, if you can find it somewhere (...), his audio tape program entitled "The Weekend Seminar". Life changing material!
The Mark Victor Hanson interview is excellent. He talks about visualization and goal setting.
The Wally "Famous" Amos interview is fair.
The Jack Canfield interview is a fantastic one on self-esteem. His analogy of self-esteem being like poker chips, where when you have a lot of chips (=high self-esteem) you tend to take more risks, is an analogy that I have adopted and use to this day. The advice that he details that he received from Tony Robbins about masterminding is precious and is a testament to the power of influence.
The Robert Allen interview is fair with just a few excellent points sprinkled in: 1) the power of mentors (how he could have gone to a university for 50 years and never learned what his mentor taught him about real estate in 6 months); 2) the power of a mastermind group 3) Recommendation of the book "Influence" by Robert Cialdini (which I believe is a must have in anyone's library...truly a profound book!). Otherwise, Allen's interview is recycled info from his Multiple Streams of Income book in addition to pitches for his mailing list and site.
Sharon Lechter interview is fair: recycled "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" (which, save for a couple of truths about how people behave, is the king of all pitch books...the book is skewed at brainwashing the reader that learning accounting and buying the $150 boardgame, CASHFLOW, is the key to amassing great wealth) material in addition to a plethora of pitches for RichDad.com and Cashflow Quadrant.
Michael Gerber interview is fair: recycled material from "E-Myth" (which is a great book) + pitches for his other books.
The Jim McCann interview is outstanding and inspirational. Here's a man that started out as a social worker in a group home and later became the top "dot-com" company with 1-800-FLOWERS.com and hob knobbing with Donald Trump. He offers some sage advice with respect to business success. He states that the real business opportunities are done in areas that aren't particularly "sexy", innovative, or high-tech. The opportunities are in the areas that someone had a passion for them. The key or the secret: find something that you are interested in and gets your juices flowing...that you feel passionate about. He talks about how everything that you do impacts people's perception of you, which is your brand.
The Jay Conrad Levinson interview is fair: recycled material from his "Guerrilla Marketing" book (which is a good book, also). ....
That said, two of the books featured "The Emyth" and "Rich Dad Poor Dad", are excellent books. I recommend buying these books directly instead of pecking for crumbs from this book.

"I did a course called, Guerrilla Marketing for the New Millennium and its available from the same place you talked about before, Aesop.com. Thats the first placed I'd go. I say that because I wrote it for people who don't know anything about marketing but want to use marketing to grow a business. Or, they have a business and they want to make it bigger and cut down the amount of money that they are investing in marketing. All of the things that I'm saying, naturally, are in my books Guerilla Marketing.
The course that I gave called, Guerilla Marketing for the New Millennium, is up to the state of the moment. It's up to state of what marketing is doing right now."
In my opinion, the book was written with the sole purpose of making money both for the author and for the interviewees. Don't buy it! The same information can be found in greater detail in other books.
What I got was a bunch of infomertials-in-print for self-improvement books. The great majority of chapters (except two) were conversations between the author(?) of this book and authors of other self-improvement books. A "mutual adoration society". All those people (except two) did was think of some vague idea about ways to achieve goals in life. Then they went ahead and published them. End of story. That's the million-dollar secret.
The one star I gave this book goes for one tangible idea I got from one of the two actual entrepreneurs - Jim McCann, who stated 1-800-FLOWERS. The idea is: "High margins attract a lot of talent, i.e. competition. Very talented people will eventually knock down the margins. The difference will have to come out of your product and service".
Then I thought: How come this book has such rave reviews? I went ahead and skimmed all 66 of them. Some curios facts emerge. For example: the are 11 five-star reviews betw. 11/13/2001 and 11/15/2001. There are other bunches of five-star reviews since this book came out. They seem to follow a not-so-good review and stretch for several days. How about that?
Stay away and don't let them make another buck off of you...
