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."

Easily the greatest short story I have ever read/listened to. I promise you after you listen to this and really soak it in that it will change your life.
If you really want to revolutionize how you look at money...this is it.
"This book is now in my personal top 5 books ever."
It is a story, not an instruction. And it is jam-packed with wisdom and life lessons that you can easily apply in every day life.
It is pretty short. Just 2 hours. But you will want to listen to it 4-5 times. It is that good.
"first time through"
so many things to listen to again. such a great story with so many things to implement in real life. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is looking for an uplifting, motivating, inspiring, and applicable story.
"If you only read 1 book make it this one."
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.
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.
