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.
Anyway, this book is about acquiring the mindset of successful and/or rich people, or those on the path to success, as well as completely changing your way of thinking (releasing petty thoughts & old, negative patterns). Mr. Eker is big on residual income, and he looks favorably on Network Marketing as one of the vehicles to building wealth over time (this was greatly emphasized during the seminar), along with developing digital information ONLINE products that can sell while you sleep (as he put it). I highly recommend the book AND the seminar.
Its all in all a great book to read especially for those just starting out on their journey to entrepreneurship and business. He even has the information to his free 3 day seminar included in this book (still active in 2017) and I have since I have told a few friends about it from my mastermind we are going to be going together in the next few months.
