I got this book from John Harrison about a month ago. It's a small paperback, but has a hell of a lot of concentrated wisdom in it. I got it because he's a lot richer than me, and I wanted to know how he got there!

I think the bottom line is: "Everybody's usually too busy earning a living to get rich" - and John points out all the mental and social snares that keep YOU poor.

The so-called "friends" that HATE the idea of you breaking loose from the 9-5 trap (and thus proving that there's nothing but inertia stopping THEM from doing it too).

The family around you that try to keep you in your place - with your nose to the grindstone of day-to-day living - because to do anything else is seriously scary to them.

No matter what idea you have for a business, it isn't going to work unless you get your thinking right. In this book, John not only offers you a lot of practical ideas for getting a business going, but makes sure you have the correct mindset to succeed.

There's an old saying: "Don't take diet advice from a fat person" - and equally, you shouldn't take advice on how to make money from a poor person either. John runs one of the most successful information-publishing companies in the UK, and I reckon his distilled wisdom is the best £3.42 you'll invest in yourself.

I'm putting it into action, anyway....

This isn't even worth 99 pence, instead it's a total waste of your time. With such a dramatic title you expect a strategy to achieve this promise, but you won't even find a viable idea. You will have had better ideas in the shower, and you'll find actionable and practical information online, for free.

This book is so out of date it pushes mail order sales, with no mention of selling online.

It is full of waffle and padding, and your time is definitely too valuable to lose on this. Examples - options covered for making money include crime, and stripping - that's how your time is insulted.

The worst part of this book, and why you shouldn't buy it, is that it praises Jimmy Saville - who is the most prolific paedophile known in the UK - and that's why I took the time to write this.

This book is padded to the hilt. Ironically there is a brief summary of what has been covered near the end and all you need to do is read that! Most of it is blindingly obvious, and yet presented as something that most of us mere mortals will not have considered before. It is a very patronising book. The book is also written by a man who clearly has a very limited experience of life. Of course what he says makes sense, but he ducks the key issue...how on earth you survive in the meantime. Its fine if you have no children or commitments, you can downsize, live by the seat of your pants etc. However, most of us who need more money, have a mortgage and a family, and are only just covering the basic cost of living with both adults working full time. There are no ideas for how you are supposed to feed and house the family while you give up work and throw your energies into being your own boss. Even if the idea does not require much capital, you still need to pay the bills in the mean time?! His notion that wages can never be too low, as people can simply move to another job if this is the case, is obvious nonsense for a lot of people in the real world! Does this man have no idea of the cost of even very basic living compared to average wages? Thus this book is potentially ok for someone who is just starting out, has no children, a way to achieve accommodation, or who has an amount of savings they can live on until the profits from the new enterprise start reaching enough to live on. To be fair, I took one potentially useful idea from the book, and it was only 99p, but all in all its a patronising book that is no help to anyone with a family and on an average income.....ie those most in need of more money! .

Entertaining read, I enjoyed it so much that I've ordered another of his books! Sadly The Toilet Pan Millionaire isn't on the Kindle yet...

I thought I may get inspiration and great ideas by reading this book, however, inspiring it would be if you were in sales already it was no real help to me as I am a self employed computer technician and can only expand by getting a lot more business and taking on staff. Don't get me wrong though, it was a good read.
