"Mark and Bob are geniuses. I've learned a lot from them and you will too!" (Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad)
There are two books in 1 with this download - one is fiction and one is non-fiction theory. I loved the fiction story and found it very inspiring towards wealth creation. I found the non-fiction useful but I must admit that I had to push myself though it. I did not find it a very easy listen.
This is why they created two seperate books as people absorb information differently.
The wealth of information in One Minute Millionaire is invaluable and I would recommend getting it.
They could have told a real life story perhaps their own
The book was a pump up. I found it to be of no real value for people trying to perfect the art of wealth building. Its more a 'Get rich quick with no hard work' hard sell.
After all the hype of this book i purchased it believing it would add value and give me some concrete tools to make some changes in my professional life.
Unfortunately I found this book to be a 'pump up' A kind of fairy tale, to the average Joe no real 'doable' steps were made obvious for climbing out of the rat race & into the wealth lane.
One half fiction,the other supposedly fact. I found the 'fact' half to be just as silly as the fiction half. If your a person of low self worth & looking for motivation & positive pump me up messages forced down your neck in a 'believe yourself rich' strategy then this books for you, however if like me your after real solid business advice aimed at budding small business owners or property developers I found this book to be a little unrealistic towards wealth building. I think these guys must have hit the caffeine hard before making this book as their hyperactive overly optimistic loud style of narration wears thin after a few minutes.
The story of the young mother who lost her kids & had to raise a million to get them back was laughable. This stuff is fairy tale, as was the goddess mentor lady she meets to guide and help her along the way..Almost like a super hero character she seems to radiate beauty,abundance,Integrity & all things nice. The whole book is based on this idea of getting rich whilst simultaneously becoming enlightened ? Come on guys. If this were true the rich wouldn't be rich,they'd all be working in charity shops & promoting world peace.. I feel this book could have benefited from some real life examples of genuine wealth building which include low as well as high elements rather than some silly fairy tale story.
This book was made to sound all to easy like taking candy from a baby & that's just not how earth spins. We need more strategy & less story telling. Maybe a bit of bio from the authors & some wealth baby steps for those of us who need a plan of action. Sorry guys , very disappointing.
"In the wrong category?"
I've listened to many of the excellent business titles available here and I need to say that this is the worst. It is very light on business details and heavy on the self help style. While it is very inspirational, I found it lacking in much of what I had hoped for. The authors are very religious and seem to focus more on that than on business. When the book finally did get around to discussing business strategies, they talked about some sketchy sounding ways to trick people into taking no money down on real estate, and their great internet money making scheme of sending mass email. There were some good points brought up in the book, such as how you want multiple streams of income and how to put together a good team. but overall the details were lacking in many of the important categories.
"Feel Good Nonsense"
This is the biggest bunch of happy horse-hockey I've ever heard. Just a bunch of rah-rah, "believe it and it will happen", Stuart Smalley-type idiocy. Not a single piece of useful or insightful or original information. It's hard to believe it goes on so long.
This book was a great listen. I like the fact that there are a few different authors of the book, each reading parts...makes it easy to listen to. The teachings of this book are very motivational and inspire me to keep pushing towards success!
"Great Book - Absolutely Fantastic Narration"
This book is delivered in two parts, a non fiction element spoken by the authors, and a modern day parable, spoken by the narrator.
The non-fiction element has excellent narration, and the affirmations and messages are really inpsiring and home-hitting, no matter how far you are on the way to being a millionaire. I cant overemphasise how good this book is to listen to!
I didn't care for the second (fiction story) element of the book - it was just too contrived and not very interesting (trying too hard to tug at the heart strings). But hey! 6 hours of excellent content out of 12 hours still makes this book an absolute bargain.
"Nothing useful here"
What a load of garbage. There wasn't a single useful piece of information here. It was full of pie in the sky tid bits. I felt like I was listening to a time share sales pitch!
This is a life transforming book. It goes right along with other spiritual teachings. We all deserve to be millionaires, if we are millionairs we can give more of it away, everyone wins:)!!!
A real treasure!!!
Although not a purely inspirational work, this gem is packed with all the hints and keys to becoming remarkably successful. It is a roadmap written by two men who have created remarkably successful lives and want to share what they have learned. Their goal of creating 1 million millionaires reflects their altruism and generosity.
The novella in Part 2 is a little cheesy (OK, ALOT cheesy!) and not a great work of fiction, but it is effective in building on the concepts in Part 1. Keep an open mind and listen for the concepts and how they can apply to your personal situation. You never know where a great idea might get its spark!
I recommend this to anyone with an interest in wealth building from a level of highest integrity.
"A Life Transformational Experience"
My wife and I enjoyed this book, our lives are forever changed. If your are not willing to transform your life this book will be useless to you. The split in the book between left and right brain is excellent. I used the novel part to introduced this book to my wife, within the first few minutes she was crying like a baby, she was overcome by her emotion. So I have my first member of my Dream Team. Important concepts discussed are Manifestation, Aha's, Millionaire Equation, Networking, Mentorship, Power of Leverage and Applying Maximum Leverage. It has open our eye, now we can see the Abundance of opportunities in South Africa.
From the beginning of the book they want to sell you to go to their website. I have read many books on self improvement and personal wealth. But, this book did not measure up to its title as it did not provide any new ideas.
"Great Inspiration! "
This book reminds readers that challenging goals are achievable when we apply proven success systems.
