There are basic principles to change your behavior and alter your financial destiny. Are you ready to be richer than you’ve ever been?

My Book Resume opinion:

This book is not just another how-to-get-rich-without-effort book with the more or less illusory advice that accompanies it. It is surprisingly enlightening. By reminding us of fundamental truths about human psychology, it allows us to quickly modify our own behavior with respect to money. We especially liked the advice on the usefulness of money and its role in our happiness. They will not allow you to become rich overnight, but they will significantly increase your chances of becoming rich in the long run. A book we recommend to all types of readers, as money is omnipresent in everyone’s life.
