Review

If there were any limit to the supply of exclamation marks, this extraordinary title would surely have exhausted it. For 103 hectic pages the reader is exhorted to “Get tough with life! Really, really get tough with life!” The muddled message in brief is that everyone has a right, if not a duty, to be rich, and to enjoy being rich; that “money is God in action!”, etc., ending with the single directive “TO BE RICH!” (Okay, okay, soon as I find the time...)

So badly written that it is all but impossible to read, this strange book will challenge the patience of the most eager beaver who ever sought “Understandingness!”
