T. Harv Eker made his millions in retail sports equipment, and now gives seminars all over the world showing people what he calls their "money blueprint" and the ways in which rich people think and act differently from the rest of us. He challenges early in the book, "Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life." He does this by asking you the way you think about money, what your memories from childhood were about money, how much money you think is a lot. He suggests that if you're programmed to think $100,000 is a lot of money, that's how much you'll make. If you want to be wealthy, you need to reprogram your thinking.

It's like that famous line that rich people are just different from you and me- well - T. Harv Eker looks at how they're different. He breaks it down into 17 what he calls "wealth files." They include things like "Rich people believe ‘I create my life.' Poor people believe ‘Life happens to me.'" and "Rich people play the money game to win. Poor people play the money game to not lose." and "Rich people think ‘both.' Poor people think ‘either/or.'"

He offers declarations throughout the book and encourages the reader to say them out loud. He admits this feels kind of hokey, and then says "I'd rather be really hokey and really rich than really cool and really broke." It's a pep talk, to be sure, and there are few new ideas here - but if wealth is something you're after, he's helped many thousands of people create it and is probably worth your read.
