From the Back Cover
Shocking. Controversial. Brilliant.
Randy Gage has been dubbed "The Millionaire Messiah" because he believes it is a sin to be poor and you were born to be rich. His "Deepak Chopra meets Dennis Miller" style is bold, brash, but right on target if you want to know the secrets of success. He takes timeless universal truths and shows you how to apply them in today's complex world.
This book is not warmed-over, New Age mumbo-jumbo but scathing, straight talk on what it really takes to wise up, get healthy, and get rich! Gage is controversial, politically incorrect, and not afraid to take on some of the most hallowed institutions of our day, from organized religion to government, pop culture to the food you eat.
This thought-provoking book will challenge your beliefs, confront your fears, and—if you are open to it—show you how to get smart, healthy, and rich!
The Late Pope:
"Like most religious leaders, his actions actually worked to keep his followers dumb, sick, and broke. He leaves behind a legacy of poverty, ignorance, and despair."
". . . are corrupt by their very nature. Your government wants and needs you to be a worker drone in the collective support system in harvesting wealth from the productive people and distributing it to the unproductive—which solidifies their power base."
"Your highest moral prerogative is your own happiness."
The American Diet:
"Ninety percent of what most of us eat on a daily basis is now 'fake food.'"
"Most people subscribe to the cosmic Santa Claus theory, believing in a God who is making a list and checking it twice, gonna find out who's naughty and nice."
The Movie Titanic:
"It panders to the fear-based, lack-centered, and limiting beliefs that most people have about money and success. Titanic programs you on many different levels that it is noble to be poor, rich people are immoral, and money is evil. And the more you liked that movie—the more subconscious lack programming you have. I think it's the most evil movie ever made."
People Whose Life Purpose Is to "Serve God":
"Ought to be in a straightjacket."

I suppose to, to use Randy’s parlance, I had too much of a victim mindset to appreciate his message. I recall him suggesting watching one of his videos per day. I tried that and started to better grasp his overall message. I started to get the bigger picture and see my role in my life’s creation more clearly. It was then that I purchased the book.
All I can say is that it is an amazing manifesto on personal responsibility. The ideas put forth, once pondered, are critical to success in any area and at any level. This IS NOT a book to read in one sitting and move on. This is a book to be digested and contemplated over time. To fully realize the potential of this book, one must invest in some honest introspection.
Once you do that, things will appear a bit different. You will notice the ways you are sabotaging your own growth and development, taking the status-duo as the “gospel.”
This book made a huge impact on my self-reflection. Very similar to As Man Thinketh by James Allen. I put those two on a similar plane.
If you feel like you might be holding yourself back in some way, do yourself a favor and invest a few minutes in yourself. I bet you'll be better off for it, even if you just reflect on and strengthen your conviction in your current mindsets.
More likely, you'll make a shift in your approach to life, and don't be surprised if this book sparks some major shifts in your life.
Absolutely worth it-
Didn't agree with everything he advocates, but he definitely got me thinking and setting up my life in a better and more financially congruent way with my dreams. Thanks, Randy!
Like most self help motivation books out there.. Same message. You can change your life if you want to. But if you prefer to stay stuck in blame, self sabotage.. It's your own" MEH" fault.. and you are probably a bore.
And, to be fair, I haven't read the entire book. That's part of the problem. It kept putting me to sleep.
I think this book will appeal to a specialized audience, perhaps someone older than me, or from a very different background. At its best, it seemed like "Wayne Dyer, Lite."
Based on others' reviews, I think this book simply didn't resonate with my views and outlook on life. I wanted something more upbeat, less preach-y, and more original.
But, if he speaks to your soul, I'm sure this is a really good book. Clearly, others thought so.
Use the "look inside" feature to decide for yourself. It really is a good representation of what's inside the book. From the reviews, I though the preview might not be complete enough, but -- in fact -- it's a pretty good way to decide if this is the book for you.
