From the Hardcover edition.

Mark Victor Hansen is the mastermind behind the blockbuster Chicken Soup series, and Robert G. Allen is the personal finance expert who wrote the million-selling Nothing Down and Creating Wealth. What brings these two bestselling authors together is their belief that good thinking and good spirits should be compatible gifts. Part inspirational fable and part motional personal finance book, The One Minute Millionaire could be the most unconventional and uplifting business book you've ever read.
Publishers Weekly
This mega-selling twosome (Hansen's name is on every book in the Chicken Soup series and Allen wrote the bestselling real estate guide No Money Down) offers a long-winded pep talk on how just about anybody can make big money. According to the authors, "At this very instant you are standing in the middle of millions." They maintain that anyone can achieve "enlightened" wealth, a utopia where everyone has money and tithes, creating a better world for all. Hansen and Allen's approach is a mix of self-help and money talk, though a bit heavier on the former. The left-hand pages are a simplified explanation of how to amass millions, with options such as write a book, buy and sell real estate and start a company. The right-hand pages illustrate the same themes, via fictionalized dramas, e.g., newly widowed Michelle's struggle to come up with $1 million in cash to get her two children back from her in-laws. Hansen and Allen's feel-good suggestions run along the lines of "find a mentor," "use a fulcrum" and "be part of a team." Full of endless acronyms (e.g., "System: Save Your Self Time Energy Money"), catchy phrases (e.g., "A Dream + A Team + A Theme = Millionaire Streams") and animal imagery (butterflies, honeybees, owls and hares scamper among the pages), this offering echoes much of the self-help cacophony already out there. But its message is muddled: sometimes the millions are yours for the asking, and sometimes it's the system that keeps you down. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

It really takes a book of certain stamina to keep my attention. Books that provide a road map to any form sof elf awareness, can at times, be boring. This book was NOTHING like that! It was very refreshing, with moments of comedy. But the way the book reads, meaning read all the purple pages first then start over, keeps your really quessing what is going to happen. I especially like the fact that you take the journey and then return to the beging to learn how to translate the journey for yourself. I have recommended this book to several friends, but mostly to the younger members of my family, nieces and nephews, feeling that they could relate, understand and apply the story to their future challenges.

There are certainly many things positive to say about Hansen and Allen's "The One Minute Millionaire." Good ideas, a unique and entertaining presentation ("how to" presentation on the left page, a "novelization" on the right page) and compelling logic. It will, however, not make you a millionaire in a minute and even the most ardent follower of the philosophy and behavior patterns outlined in the book will find it difficult to rearrange one's life to fit their idea of how to amass wealth in a short period of time. The only real issue I have with the book is that it is basically a marketing tool for a website which requires registration, personal information and, if you follow through, a financial contribution. I, personally did not fall for that and read the book without using the website. I believe that the techniques presented in the book will, no doubt, positively impact the way the reader approaches wealth acquisition and could well be instrumental in creating a mindset of money and abundance, but keeping your eyes open and not paying for the book a second time with on line payments is just as useful advise.

I loved this book for a few different reasons. First of all because it pays respects to the ultimite author GOD. Secondly because it does give you a play by play plan of how to make this work for you. I am a practicing Real Estate Professional and I have seen people work these kinds of deals to make money in Real Estate. The internet idea is also a very real factor. Look at Facebook and Myspace. These were just some idea roaming around in someone's head until they made it a reality. One Minute Millionaire, from conception, to plan, to action, and these guys were in their 20's. To the one guy who gave this book a bad rap, check yourself, just because you can't see the picture at work don't bash the book. These really are Millionaire habbits written for everyday people. What works for one doesn't work for all, so you have to find what works for you as a person. I have put some of the methods in this book into play and I have had positive results. You think, so you do, and you become that is basic...........Maybe you should read the book again because you missed the basics teachings of the Authors. 'This is a great motivational book and nothing more.' Is exactly what it is supposed to do.......lol.

This book is fantastic. We are just starting a investment group and what a message to recieve upon doing so. I love how you give enough content to still leave a person enough room for there own creativity. Most people in life have to many options to fail. What if we really wasn't allowed to. I really liked putting you into the situation that you did in the story where you didn't have the ability to fail, and was held accountable for doing it the right way.

This book is sort of childish, like trying to convince a six-year-old that Santa exists. What was helpful was the following: 1.Good business practices are important. 2.Vision and imagination are key in finding and creating opportunities. 3.People who are knowledgeable about leverage are able to act quickly when opportunities present themselves. I would recommend it only as an imagined case study; it did open my eyes to the ways in which you can finance deals.

A friend gave me a copy and I must say it was life changing. My wife enjoyed it when I read sections to her. I have recommended the book to my students in my classes for career motivation.
