Book Description

Jan. 2 2007
In Relax into Wealth, master storyteller Alan Cohen demonstrates the intrinsic link between passion, authenticity, and prosperity. He shows that nothing pays like . . . being yourself.

This popular national speaker and bestselling writer delivers his prosperity principles in fifty-two true stories of successful people he has encountered, including celebrities, Midas-touch entrepreneurs, shuttle-bus drivers, wide-eyed children, and even a stripper. Then, in his unique way, Cohen highlights the lesson within each parable and expands upon it, enabling readers to apply the principle to their own lives.

Cohen uses the story, the most cogent teaching device in history, to give readers an entertaining and accessible model. Relax into Wealth makes use of personal (and sometimes quite intimate) tales to capture the reader’s attention and impart the wisdom found in the experience. Each of its fifty-two anecdotes ends with a personal affirmation to help readers remember the lesson and carry it into real life.

Most popular books on success in business or personal finance are formula-driven, focusing on techniques to make more money, climb the corporate ladder, or outpower competition. Relax into Wealth is character-driven, shining the spotlight on the kind of heart, faith, and vision required to overcome fear, peer pressure, limiting beliefs, or a history of failure.

The book is about real people—in whom readers can recognize themselves—featuring moneymakers who have been true to their passion and successful in their chosen domain. Every reader will see his own financial hopes—and how to achieve them—in the lives of the various characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enhanced what I already knew to be true. I loved it! June 15 2007
By Reading my way thru life - Published on
I have always enjoyed Alan Cohen's books. His easy to read style has always been appealing to me. You don't have to work to pay attention and I have found his books interesting and helpful.

So, with all of the hype of 'The Secret' and after having read so many books along the same line as this, I thought I was just done reading this stuff, feeling that I've read it all and there's nothing new to know about attracting wealth into my life. I decided I'd read it anyway even though my first reaction to the title was almost a turn off. The sub-title: 'How to get more by doing less' just sounded like another one of those too good to be true type books.

I started reading, and found that I was not dissappointed at all. I was hooked from the introduction where Alan tells about how his flight was delayed and instead of waiting in line and fighting the crowd to demand/request an upgrade, he took the easy way out and decided to take a rest in the lounge and what happened was- the upgrade came to him, quite effortlessly. That got me thinking right away about times I have pushed and struggled to get what I felt like I rightfully deserved and the times when I haven't and how things did actually turn out even better than I could have asked for(or demanded.) Which coincides with a belief that I have that we always get what's coming to us. If we're supposed to have it we WILL have it. -Just may not come from the avenue we may be expecting it to. (which is kind of the beauty to it really)

The first chapter 'Abundance is Natural' is a great starter in that it gets you to recognize the abundance that is already around you. At the end of each chapter, there is a 'Wealth Widsom Builders' section that asks some questions or gives you simple excercises to do. Then there's an affirmation after that. You will do well to take the time and effort to think about the questions/excercises and write down your own answers. The first excercise from chapter 1 tells you to name 5 things you can see in great abundance from right where you are now. The things I immediately saw in front of me were grass, oxygen, trees, houses, blue sky. Then I thought about that for a few moments. We don't get up every morning and worry about whether or not there will be enough oxygen in the world for us today. We just know that it's always there. If we pick a blade of grass, more grows back. (like when you pluck a hair from your chin and 3 more grow from the exact spot!) -couldn't resist that one!
I have been recycling for a few years now, and it amazes me how fast my recycle containers fill up! (I've pondered this activity a lot, trying to figure out exactly HOW to do this with my money.) I empty the containers at the recycle center and before I know it they're full again! Maybe it's because my intention for recycling is lined up appropriately, and my reason for doing that is out of love and respect for the earth and other people, as well as taking responsibility for the trash I produce? Okay, on to the rest of the book....

The thing about this book is that it's well written and holds your interest and you can definately benefit from reading it. The author gives you examples from his own life and others that show you exactly how it all works. The man is not perfect, and he tells how he's reacted in certain situations and learned from it. The book is a nice length, not too short or too long. -and it's packed with very useful advice!

Reading this book and doing the excercises could save you a lot of time, trouble and money over reading several others on the same topic.

Thanks for reading my review! I hope I've helped!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Wealth through Great Thinking Jan. 7 2007
By Lisa2 - Published on
Relax Into Wealth is a quick, enjoyable read. Alan Cohen intersperses his motivational lessons with stories about individuals who exemplify the principles, as well as practical exercises at the end of each chapter designed to help you consider the ideas presented therein. Although I have encountered similar ideas in various books and articles about "manifesting", I think Cohen's work is much less abstract and delivers clear and comprehensive direction in this area. It is quite good and is the type of book you can pick up for quick reference and/or motivation each day. This is not a book specifically on creating wealth through financial techniques, career choices, etc. Rather it discusses one's overall disposition toward wealth from all aspects of life and how attitude can affect the tangible assets one has. As such, it would make a very good addition to your financial library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perked me up! Aug. 5 2007
By Promise - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been reading Alan Cohen's books for forever it seems. I loved them in the beginning and then, for some reason, I fell off the fan band wagon. This is the first one I've read in maybe ten years and I really liked it!

I have read many many of the prosperity writers, from Florence Scovel Shinn (great) to Charles Fillmore to Catherine Ponder to Shakti Gawain to Wayne Dyer. I've probably forgotten a few...oh yeah, I browsed The Secret but didn't buy it. So I can't say that much that Alan writes here is new, but he has such a captivating style that the old maxims came alive and I re-caught the enthusiasm that I once had and let die out.

To me, Alan embodies great intelligence, a wonderful sense of humor, practicality, authenticity and depth. Obviously his principles have worked for him, too, since his first book was written on a borrowed typewriter in a rented attic and now he seems to be living very well in Hawaii. Of all the writers I mentioned above, he's the one I'd most like to know! I bet he'd be a lot of fun!

I've given a number of his books away as gifts (not this one, yet) and everyone said they really liked them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gem from Alan Cohen Sept. 30 2007
By Jeff Maziarek, author of Codi's Journey - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'll admit it, I really like most of Alan Cohen's work. He's a heart-centered author who usually combines highly useful content with a bit of humor. In this book Cohen shares real stories about real people who have manifested various levels of success in their lives, which makes it a highly practical book. I particularly liked the way he orgainzed the book around nine "wealth wisdom keys."

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new July 12 2007
By Antigone Walsh - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although written in an engaging fashion, this book is another rehash of the principles of the law of Attraction. The book contains many small chapters of three pages or so. Each contains a vaguely familiar vignette, followed by a self-assessment quiz and an affirmation. If you are new to manifestation and attraction, you will no doubt find this book helpful. If you have mastered the basics or if you are looking for a self-directed program focusing on wealth, you will be disappointed.

This is an easy and pleasant read, far superior to many offerings. It may be helpful for a motivational boost or a review. However, it does not come close to surpassing the masterful Dynamic laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder.
