From the Publisher
"An astonishing guide to attract all the money you want and transform your life. Highly recommended." Dr. Joe Vitale contributor to The Secret and bestselling author of The Key and The Attractor Factor
From the Author
It was Wallace Wattles' book, The Science of Getting Rich that first introduced me to the Law of Attraction. I began to do what it said and sure enough, money started to flow into my life. So too did a whole lot of other books on the subject. I would go to a bookstand in an airport, for example, and whoa! - another Law of Attraction book.
But I found the same problem with all of them. They were written in `new-agey', mysterious kind of language. How would you know if what you were doing was correct or not when say, Deepak Chopra told you to `release this list of my desires and surrender it to the womb of creation, trusting that when things don't seem to go my way, there is a reason, and that the cosmic plan has designs for me much grander than even those that I have conceived'. Indeed!
So I wrote this book. I knew that the Law of Attraction worked, but I thought that if I could make it simpler for people, then more people might try it.
So that's what you'll get in this book - a simple, practical, common sense guide to using the Law of Attraction to bring wealth - and by this I mean money, not just figurative wealth - into your life.

I'm sorry but I have to say this book is just crap. It's a flimsy self-help effort along the lines of, "hey anyone can do it! Just follow these simple steps! It worked for me!" No. If you've got the brains, creativity, ingenuity and drive to start your own business or climb to dizzy heights in the corporate world you don't need this book. If you haven't then reading this book, or any book, probably won't help you.
That's not to say I'm anti many of the themes and ideas in this book - have a plan; be grateful for what you've got; take regular exercise - are all wholesome bits of advice I would heartily recommend myself. But Fergus brings nothing new to the party, this is all standard life coaching stuff that's been peddled for decades and is occasionally 'rediscovered'.
I'll give you some good advice for free; smile more and make the effort to remember people's names, oh and try and be a nice person. There.Read more ›
The author claims a scientific basis to his theories, but the science he quotes is at best an analogy to his theory, and at worst a way to bamboozle people without a scientific background. He is derogatory about software technical people, amongst others, using terms like "Propeller heads" when referring to them. Perhaps he hasn't notices that some of the most lucrative companies in the world, such as Google, Yahoo and Microsoft are based around the ability to create and market software, produced by these propeller heads.
There are the standard get out clauses that are used in Get Rich Quick schemes, such as, "It will only work if you truly believe it", which means that, if things don't work out the author just has to claim you didn't truly believe, so it's your fault.
With these criticisms aside, he does make the point that well planned projects are more likely to succeed and gives some advice on making project plans, even suggesting the use of project planning software tools from technical people that he seems to despise. He does give good advice that you only know if a plan has been successful if you have determined your criteria for success.
This is a cross between a book on business and management combined with pyschobabble and bad science. Yes, I'm a sceptic, however, I will try to harness my self belief and try the techniques - if they work, I'll add to this review, if they don't, it must be because I'm sceptical - a win-win for the author.
The book is divided into three sections: decide how much you want, have a plan and believe. At the beginning of each section you receive a summary of the chapters to follow. In section one we explore why it's okay to ask for lots of money, how to figure how much money you want and how to transmit your request for money. In section two we examine how to figure out what channels to use to get money, how to build a plan and what to do if our plan doesn't work. In section three we explore the idea of 'acting as if', gratitude, stopping worrying and reducing stress, problem solving and how to remove blockages from your money making schemes.
While never explicitly mentioning neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), the author explores the subject suggesting that success leaves clues which can be followed and reproduced. This leads him into territory explored by Anthony Robbins in classics such as Unlimited Power: The New Science of Personal Achievement and ...Read more ›
