Cignacco discusses the metaphysical principles that, in his opinion, can help the reader create wealth without extra effort. While on the surface I agree with many of his points - the good of a positive attitude, contentment, etc, I'm not totally sold on the idea that mediation and the placement of my furniture will land a $1 million in my bank account.
While organizing my ebooks at the beginning of the year I came across this title on my Nook and thought with everyone's New Year Resolutions it might be an interesting book to review. Apparently, it has been awaiting my review for a while and for the like of me I'm not sure why I accepted it for review. It was really not my type of book at all. But it had its interesting moments.
Though more money wasn't one of my resolutions, I tried to be open-minded about the book. However, I felt that the opening chapters were rambly. There was a lot more repetition than I felt was necessary. In my non-fiction reading, I prefer short and to the point. There were several places throughout the book that I thought could have been written more concisely.
The book was clearly written for a British audience (words with "s" instead of "z" and pounds instead of dollars), I don't think anything was lost in translation.
I have no idea if these techniques will increase anyone's bank account (though there have been studies that show that happy people tend to get more raises and promotions). I'm also not sure how Cignacco believes it either. He is just as apt to use riches, wealth, or prosperity when the terms can be as much of a perspective as it is an actual amount in the bank.
Cignacco takes a Universalist view of the world and largely uses the terms Universe and God interchangeably. The later chapters are steeped in New Age thinking.
