I have just finished a very interesting book by Felix Dennis, called "How to get rich". He calls it, and I agree with him, an anti-self help book. It's a book about what its really like to get rich and how to do it.

I don't agree with everything Felix says, especially in my field of work in IT, about how to grow and build a business to make real wealth - mainly the part where he insists you own 100% of your business. In my case this is a practical impossibility unless you are very rich to start out, as you need large amounts of money to build a world class IT business. In order to raise money you usually need to trade equity for capital.

However, in most of the rest of his assertions which are pretty focused on his area of expertise in publishing and mail order I would agree with him.

The core things I learned from this (or he reminded me what I already knew) where that to succeed in any endeavour to an extreme (i.e. to get really rich) you need to be an extremist. You need an internal drive that will never be diminished. Desire is not an option.

In order to actually make it past the point of good or great, to insanely successful you must have the patience and perseverance well beyond a normal person. In being extraordinary you need to insulate yourself from negative people that will try and slow you down. Remember - who you spend time with is who you become!

Great ideas are `ten a penny' - In order to make any money of an idea you need world class execution from a team of talented and focused people.

Keep bringing yourself back to your core goals (yes write them down and visualise them) and remember why you do what you do. If that's making money then kill the dead projects, invest in those that are likely to win big.

This is a great read, even if a little discouraging. I much prefer those books which teach you the magic incantations, which lead you to wake up one morning, to find large boxes of cash neatly stacked in the hall. This is different. Dennis (the Saxondale of self-made men), tells the ugly truth about what it really takes to get seriously rich and does it in a very pleasing style, which seems to ooze wisdom, honesty and passionate personal opinion. Quite easily the best book I have read of its type.

I would recommend this book to anyone, even if it just serves as a reminder, of why you don't really want to be rich afterall.

Really good book, whether you read it for entertainment or looking for advice. The grandiose title means the author must really deliver and does so in spades. I bought the book at the 99% stage of beginning my own business venture and it proved exactly what I needed in terms of understanding the harsh realities of making your fortune.

The tone of this book is suited to those who value a blunt, forthright view of the business world and have a zero tolerance for b*llsh1t!. This guy has done it and deserves his money (both for his business empire and the royalties of this book)

I have had the book for about a month, finished reading it in 2 days, now dip into chapters to reinforce the knowledge it provides.

Buy the book if only for one reason - it will teach you about sentimentality in business and why millions of people are poor because of it.

When I make my fortune I will send the author a bottle of Petrus as a Thank you.

This book is a little bit like a visit to a psychologist. A psychologist won't change your life. You will have to do it yourself but he will give you tips and ideas and provide you with reassurance and encouragement. Dennis too gives you tips (on how to get on track to get your hands on that elusive million) but of course it's up to you, the reader, to execute your own ideas. So this book will be perfect for whoever has already been toying with the idea of starting a business venture as it will give them the final push to actually do it. The core message of the book is: Believe in yourself and get started, stay focussed while executing your idea, surround yourself with talent and stay in control of your own company until it's time to harvest the fruits of your labour. This message makes sense and I am almost certain, that every successful self-made business man is likely to agree with Dennis on this. My gripe with this book is that its message has been panned out to 328 pages. What could have been a very interesting longish article in Esquire perhaps makes, in my opinion, a very tiresome read. It's repetitive in places and there is loads and loads of waffle to s----t----r----e-----t-----c----h the content as much as possible. But worse of all I found the author's distracting and in my opinion not even good poems which are scattered throughout the book (obviously another attempt to bump up the content even more). Here is an example:

Wishes are fishes(sic!) that swim in the nets
Of castaways' souls by the shores of the dead,
Where coins are as rare as a ferryman's debts,
And nobody cares what you did, or you said.
