I was quite excited to read this book. It actually did not take very long to read and before writing this review I decided to reread it. The title of this book is in my opinion somewhat misleading.
I just found the entire book to be too vague in many ways. Every one of the 72 ways could have been expanded on in one way or another but instead was reduced to a page or two. Also I wasn't able to find any information that was new. The cover of the book is appealing and the description on the back of the cover really pumps up the book with it's claims.
Like this:
You Can Recession-Proof Your Life and Get Your Life Back on the Right Track...Right Now!

Or this:

After  reading just a few chapters of this book, you will look to inform all your friends on the dynamics of how this book has changed your life.

As if that claim wasn't enough there's more:

  • Encourage Yourself While Facing Hardships
  • Discover Money In Unlikely Places
  • Make The Right Business Decisions
  • Increase The Probability Of A successful Marriage
  • Strengthen Your Resolve To Live Your Dreams

I honestly cannot recommend this book because to do so would  not be right and would possibly be very misleading.
I received this book from The Cadence Group in exchange for a review.


  1. Hey Lauren! I loved your honesty in your book review. I am so tired of "get rich schemes". It makes me want to go out and string up every one who tries to take advantage of people. I know, that doesn't sound very Christian-like, but neither is scamming people out of their hard-earned money. Some of us are just gullible. (ME). I have been scammed a few times. You would think I would learn. Anyway, thanks for your honesty. Also, Did you ever find the "Butler's". Is it the family with the 2 girls and they have horses and such? If so, I have their link on my followers widget. Come check it out if you haven't found them, or I can just copy it and bring it back to you. Just let me know.

    God Bless,

  2. Oh PJ, Thank you so much for your comment! I have been struggling so much about writing this review because i wanted this to be a good book so much. I have hardly read a book that I did not find some passion, or something from whether it was in my genre or not. This one actually was. I have been so worried about posting this review but I decided to be honest and stand by what I believe. I'll love you forever for your comment. The Butler's I were looking for were "Butlers Way" I ended up finding them. See you at the frog,lol.


Thanks for leaving a comment.
