From Publishers Weekly
Eker's claim to fame is that he took a $2,000 credit card loan, opened "one of the first fitness stores in North America," turned it into a chain of 10 within two and a half years and sold it in 1987 for a cool (but somewhat modest-seeming) $1.6 million. Now the Vancouver-based entrepreneur traverses the continent with his "Millionaire Mind Intensive Seminar," on which this debut motivational business manual is based. What sets it apart is Eker's focus on the way people think and feel about money and his canny, class-based analyses of broad differences among groups. In rat-a-tat, "Let me explain" seminar-speak, Eker asks readers to think back to their childhoods and pick apart the lessons they passively absorbed from parents and others about money. With such psychological nuggets as "Rich people focus on opportunities/ Poor people focus on obstacles," Eker puts a positive spin on stereotypes, arguing that poverty begins, or rather, is allowed to continue, in one's imagination first, with actual material life becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. To that end, Eker counsels for admiration and against resentment, for positivity, self-promotion and thinking big and against wallowing, self-abnegation and small-mindedness. While much of the advice is self-evident, Eker's contribution is permission to think of one's financial foibles as a kind of mental illness—one, he says, that has a ready set of cures.

Eker, a multimillionaire, teaches us how to become rich. He believes thoughts lead to feelings, which lead to actions, which lead to results, and hence the key to attaining great wealth begins with thinking--like rich people do. He offers new ways of thinking and acting that will lead to new and different results, and he tells us, "Success is a learnable skill. You can learn to succeed at anything." The book emphasizes Eker's 17 principles for amassing wealth, which include: rich people believe that they create their life, while poor people believe "life happens to me." Rich people focus on opportunities, while poor people focus on obstacles. Rich people act in spite of fear, while poor people let fear stop them. Rich people constantly learn and grow, while poor people think they know enough. This is an obvious infomercial for the author's training seminars; however, although many may not agree with all of Eker's ideas, his book offers thought-provoking advice and valuable insight.

The ideas in this book are simple, there is no complicated formula for getting rich, if you are looking for that you need to move on. Its going to take smart, planned, and dedicated work. It is going to require a lot of learning about money, choosing a path that you believe with every fiber of your being that will make you rich, and be willing to fail. Not with the intent of failure, but knowing it is a possibility and can provide a great learning experience on the way to success.
I will say this is a great book to read, but it is a starting point. If this is your first book on building wealth, that is great, and in this book there are several more great ones that T. Harv Eker mentions which I believe are worth looking at and studying. If he mentions someone successful, consider them a potential person to study about and learn from their examples.
I've implemented the money management techniques mentioned in the book, and it's been great. The financial balance this book brings was much needed in my life.
This is not a get rich quick book or business book really. It's really a money book that focuses on financial balance, rather than just investing or money management. The concept of a splurge fund was new to me, but it's been great to implement.
The fun I have spending money from my splurge account motivates me to make more money so that I can have more fun :) And I don't feel guilty about spending the money, because I have other money budgeted for investing, savings, and giving.
This book really will change your life if you do the steps. So far I zip lined on the highest zip line in the world, and went skydiving with my wife. Next we're going on an overnight trip somewhere so that our 4 year old boys can fly on an airplane for the first time.
Get the book and do the steps. You won't be disappointed.
