From Publishers Weekly
Written by two men transformed by the events of September 11, this book is intended to offer bored, stuck-in-a-rut readers a path to a more rewarding existence. Instead of focusing on the outward trappings of wealth (such as a higher salary, profits from trading stocks or a better job), the authors say, people should become more aware of what they want out of life and what legacy they want to leave behind. Zimmerman and Rosen, who run the consulting firm Inner Securities Inc., write in simple sentences, using a bold typeface for emphasis, to deliver their message. They ask, "Why has money been the basis of so much pain and conflict? One answer to this question is because people feel betrayed. Betrayed by money. Betrayed by a belief.... Or a lack of something to believe in." They then describe how money has been contaminated by greed, jealousy and other forms of abuse. The bottom line: people should strive for inner security, which is far more rewarding than outer wealth. Similar, obvious theses are stated for writing a will (it should transcend the traditional document to become a promise to "live a life of Inner Security. To create Heaven on Earth during my lifetime. To leave a blueprint for its sustainability for all who survive me"). Undoubtedly, many people did change both their professional and personal priorities after September 11. However, this book offers few original insights, and its advice can be found in countless other self-help books written both before and after recent acts of terrorism.

Sometimes people write books just to be able to say that they wrote "a book" which makes them a published "author".
This is one of those books. Lots of truisms, common sense knowledge. Absolutely nothing new. Not even worth the $1.50 you can get it for now and given the price it's selling for you can see for yourself how effective the advice on "INFINITE WEALTH" was. Nice try. Next.
In "Inner Security and Infinite Wealth" the authors examine the concepts of will, inheritance, ownership, value, trust, allowance, investment, appreciation, and exchange and redefine them into deeper concepts instead of being only related to money. They recognize that money is an important part of net worth, but reframing the above concepts can change an individual's relationship with money. Enlightening, well written, and powerful, this is easily one of the best books of the year in the area of self-worth and a highly recommended purchase.
The financial terms applied to everyday life work nicely. This is a good way to teach people to be good to themselves and eachother again. I'm glad I got this.
