First three chapters are good, fizzles out after that
on 21 December 2012
First the good: the author presents some interesting ideas in the first few chapters which concern how reframing and recontextualising the problem of wealth vs poverty can lead to new ways of thinking and hence new ways to get rich (or just get out of dire straits). However, when it comes to presenting actual magical techniques, most of them are just a rehash of age-old hoodoo root-workings which have been documented before.
As an astrologer, I ought to point out caution in the author's reliance on the planet Jupiter as the be-all and end-all of all one's financial problems. Whilst it does represent wealth in a sense, Jupiter only really refers to long-term good-fortune and investments whose value reflects the state of the economy. Ready-cash is more under the presidency of the Sun, short-term profits and business acuity are under the planet Mercury, whilst technically, _every_ other planet could be argued to have a bearing in one sense or another - e.g. if anger issues are preventing you holding down a regular job, you've got to be careful of Mars, etc.
