Publisher's Summary

Wink and Grow Rich is the fable about a boy being raised by his carpenter father, who is both sick and tired. In fact, he is tired of being sick and sick of being tired. Every day for the last 20 years the carpenter has visited the Well of Wealth and spent a dollar, because it is generally accepted by the townsfolk that if they give generously to the Well, it will in turn give generously to them. On this day, the carpenter is so ill that he is unable to visit the Well, so he entrusts his nine-year-old son, Richard, with a crumpled but treasured dollar and sends him in his place. Along the way, Richard discovers that the Well of Wealth is not where he thought it would be, so he follows a different, more overgrown path, on which he meets an old woman, an optometrist, a plumber, a gardener, a fisherman, a rower, a musician, and an innkeeper. These intriguing and mysterious characters act as guides for Richard and share their wisdom. They have all built their wealth in very different ways, yet there is something about each that is common to all. The story is intended to make the listener think more deeply about the dynamics of wealth creation. The keys to wealth are contained in the story behind the story, the lesson behind the lesson. To find these keys, the listener needs to become better at "seeing" - a philosophy the author sums up as, "What you see is always what you get."

If you only read 1 book make it this one.

Would you listen to Wink and Grow Rich again? Why?

I have listened to Wink and Grow Rich over and over, each time I take out new lessons and start new thought processes. You need to read it with an open mind which is prepared to question your own beliefs and understandings. All the concepts are so obvious and common sense, plus you would have heard them before. I always recommend this book to everybody.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

This is life guys but not as you know it.

No - its not just another wanna be business fable

I was orginally sceptical - but something was different in this when I listened to the sample. The story is about a 9 year old boy - (that seems bit too young). But the concepts spread thru the book are very relevant to all of us who seek to succeed and grow rich. It is about becoming rich materially and spiritually. It ends with a puzzle = leaving it to you to solve by listening again and again. I have only done my first listening. Will post another review if I solve and get point number 30 in Richards note book.
