Not a science of getting rich, in fact not science but theology. For a much better expression of largely the same ideas, without the dogmatic overtones, listen to "The Secret". Not worth the money.

Two fantastically high achieving individuals in a candid view on today's economy. Telling the other side to the sensationalism you see in the press daily. Highly reccomended.

When slighted, misunderstood, cut-in-front-of, annoyed, taken advantage of, or treated rudely, most people avoid their bosses, ignore co-workers, change hairdressers, complain to friends, shout and pound their fists. They often miss the most positive, effective alternative of all: confronting positively.

I was excited to listen to the book and gain insight. After nearly 2 hours listening i had to stop as the narrators dry mouth 'slurp' of the narrator was incredibly irritating. I simply could not follow through and listen to the rest of the book. What i did hear was very detailed but lacked a definite purpose; obviously well researched and a book upon which the author is knowledgeable, but there was nothing i could take away from the limited amount i could listen to. I hope you are able to gain more than i did.
