Amazon.com Review

Those not put off by its audacious title and cheeky tone will find How to Get Filthy, Stinking Rich and Still Have Time for Great Sex really is filled with some helpful basic information for prospective entrepreneurs. Herb Kay, a self-made rich guy with chutzpah to spare, insists slow-and-steady and get-rich-quick approaches to financial freedom are both losers. His recommendation? Self-employment, which never limits potential earnings. Not a particularly novel concept, to be sure, but Kay does offer supportive advice in this flip, business-cum-lifestyle guide that may hit home with those who dismiss similar books as either maddeningly tame or hopelessly optimistic. There are some pretty obvious suggestions here (identify needs in an area where you have strong personal interest and then develop new ways to fill them, for example) but they're often supported by helpful advice that reflects Kay's personal experience (i.e., avoid ordinary consumer banks and big national chains in favor of smaller business institutions where top executives themselves can explain how their services fit your needs). As for the title's "great sex," Kay eventually admits this is just "a metaphor for anything you enjoy doing away from the office." Alas, another myth shattered. --Howard Rothman

From the Publisher

[Back Cover]

Are you tired of working hard to make your boss rich?

Do you work so hard and long that your family checks the photo album to remember what you look like?

When you come home from work, does your dog think you're a burglar?

In this exciting book, self-made millionaire and Wealth Coach Herb Kay shares the secrets to great wealth and even greater happiness through starting and owning your own business. Herb proves that although you can make money in stocks or real estate, it's only through owning your own business that you can earn really big money!

Herb also talks about the dirty little secret of business most of us ignore: the fact that you can work so hard that you lose the ability to enjoy the fruit of your labors. Even worse, you can lose your family. Herb shares his real-life advice on how to have it all--success and happiness!

Upon recieving this book I read it in approximately 3 hours. Not exactly harecore information. The book is too general. I expected to find some deep insight in to the working mind of a millionare. As well as some valuable info on running a successful business. As a small business owner I wanted more in terms of "how to", all that was delievered was basic reasons as to why people that work for others are not "filthy, stinking rich." If you are a serious business person, who's time is your most prescious asset, don't waste it on this book. No offence to the author, but in my opion this book is written on a third grade reading level.

I've wasted years reading almost every single "get rich quick" book out there ... and finally found everything I needed to know in this book. It's funny, easy-to-follow and easy-to-read, extremely motivating, and filled with ideas that anyone can use to get filthy, stinking rich! It's about time someone wrote a book that I can not only relate to, but also use to spend more time with my family AND have the security I need to live a happy, fulfilled life.

This book is a complete waste of time. 5 star reviews? Must have been by the author himself. This author, Herb Kay, pleaded guilty and is now spending 5 years in an AZ prison for committing fraud. Is he rich? Don't know but he used a public defender. Does he have time for sex? Yep, 5 years. Don't know if it's going to be great, though.

Read and own the book. FYI, this guy is now in prison for 5 years. Guilty of running a Ponzi scheme in Arizona. Search the newspaper web site Tucson.com and search for Herbert Kay. He got filthy stinking rich stealing your money. Don't try this at home.

After some research about the author, dishonest,self-serving and unethical are the only words that come to mind. I would not advise anyone who has even the lowest form of morals to either purchase this book or subscribe to the ideas offered by this author.

This book was delivered to our office on pre-release and I picked it up because of the clever title. Unlike the plethora of other "how-to" business books on the market, this one doesn't redigest information already available from other sources.
In fact, if you're looking for spread-sheet help, tax advice, or a detailed analysis of writing a business plan--go elsewhere. (In fact, Kay tells you this at the beginning of the book.)
Instead, Kay offers up insight and advice in bite-sized pieces to the beginning entrepeneur on setting up, growing, and sustaining your own business based on Kay's experiences--both good and bad.
I especially liked his advice on bouncing back from bankruptcy.
If you're looking for a book to help you succeed in your own business succeed without sacrificing health or happiness, this is worth checking out.

Herb Kay just blurts out the truth and doesn't seem to care where the chips may fall. Did I like the book? I'm purchasing 100 copies of it as gifts for my staff and my clients. Do the math. I'm spending nearly $1,500 to share a message that I deeply believe every aspiring business person should hear. No one has ever said this stuff more plainly or more boldly. You'll find yourself stunned beyond words at the things this guy will openly talk about! We're talking VERY politically incorrect. You'll be laughing and nodding your head up and down within five minutes, I guarantee it.
