Even the title started shifting my mindset.
I used to call myself a procrastinator and studied the topic for the last two years. Rob’s book gave me great insights into duality of our nature and to stop calling myself a procrastinator. It has great tips how to take actions.

The book gives you a full understanding of what Money is and what money is not.
The author himself went through all the stages of relationship with the money: from hate/desperate/want/don’t understand them to respect/know/get more/give more.
He shares his good times and bad times and even bed times :-)
Very transparent, no bullish...t approach which opened my eyes on my believes and myths around money.

I love personal development books but this one is really a waste of trees if you buy a hard copy in my opinion.
To be fair I should’ve given 2 stars instead of 1 star but after seeing so many 5 star reviews I felt I needed to balance it.

I understand why people praise this book- there is such an appealing idea described in this book, kind of an explanation that we have “an enemy” in our head and we need to ignore that inner voice.”It is as simple as that” - words from the book.
Another example - To stop smoking all you need to do is not put the first cigarette in your mouth in the morning- as simple as that.

Really?! Is it that simple?


That inner voice is there for a reason, like our heart, brain or teeth. Everything is needed. It’s not an enemy. It does talk bollocks sometimes but it also helps us. It’s like writing a book - “Fire is bad “, it can burn you and your house. Eliminate the fire from your life and all will be fine... But what about the fact that if properly used and managed - the fire can keep us warm, cook our food and create lots of beautiful and useful things? The author forgot that life is super intelligent and there is a balance in everything. By buying into the idea that all the sh..t that happened to you is because of that inner useless voice - we disempower ourselves and can blame that inner voice. It’s an illusion but a very nice one - hence people are so excited and think they finally got an answer to their problems. The ideas in the book are one sided so after a while of ignoring the voice in your head I suspect a phycological diseases may start showing up. I would like to see people following the advice from the book for 3-5 years and how healthy they are in their head.

My inner voice often helps me. It’s important to learn how to manage it because it (the monkey mind) can indeed overtake our life and our life will become like a ship driven by a monkey - you never know where it will end up. My inner voice often supports me and protects me. It comes up with brilliant ideas. It can get overprotective and can indeed come up with rubbish ideas too. Like I said - it is like a fire - the fire itself isn’t a problem, the management of it can be.

But the teachings of this book give a false illusion that ignoring your inner voice - is a solution to all our problems.

It’s a first time I really struggled to listen to the end and I listened and read hundreds of books.

There are golden nuggets in it but you have to look for them carefully - hence I give 2 star to the story.
The silver lining - purchasing this book based on so many positive reviews thought me that I have to do a bit more research before I invest my money into any knowledge and education.
It also made me write this review and I genuinely prefer to please people and writing such a negative review is a step for me being more authentic.
