5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, 24 Nov 2009
This review is from: Think and Grow Rich: The Original Classic (Hardcover)
I'm not your usual reviewer but wow I really enjoyed this book and I had to share my experience. I kind of discovered this book because I have been slowly buying my way through a number of the classics Butler-Bowdon recommends to see that he had re-issued a classic like this I thought I'd give it a try but when will he be ready to give us his own book.

The enjoyment I derived from this classic starts from even before I opened the cover the black book with pink band is not your usual package for a self help book but then this is no ordinary book. Just like its design it cuts through the washy sentimentalist thinking and gives you some directly applicable things that you can put to work in your life the instant you read it.

A good intro by Butler-Bowdon followed by one of the most powerful reads I've been engaged in. Whatever step you are on the ladder this one will take you one rung or maybe two higher. It surprisingly is not all about material riches but more about riches in the fullest sense and is littered with cases of some of the most successful people of its time. A read that can be helpful not just to the business men and women but also the college student, teen ager, single mother or unemployed; in fact every body.

As a stockbroker/FA half who has been through some turbulent times recently it is comforting to know that the book was penned in a similar if not harsher time and I think the timing of this book is great.

This book is a fantastic investment and will generate more over a month then its price, oh and watch out for a fantastic part on the success of Coco-cola under the section called the enchanted kettle. I wont spoil it for you.
