Format: Paperback
In this book, best selling author and transformational teacher Jack Canfield shares what motivates him to do what he does. He gives us more than a peak behind the curtain, and while doing so also gives us insight into what drives many of today's other transformational teachers and thought leaders. It is fascinating to learn about some of the many different states of consciousness around us on our planet today, and why some of these people are committed to a clear and serious vision and purpose to assist humanity through this critical passage in our own evolution. Thanks Jack, for all you give, and all you are.

HASH(0xa47cd1b0) out of 5 stars A(nother) New Cult Nov. 12 2011
By L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Jack and Bill are men on a mission. A mission based predominantly on the 'Conscious Evolution' work of Barabara Marx Hubbard. Well over half the book is devoted to a somewhat rambling account of Jack's life to date. I was looking for so much wisdom from this experience and was left found wanting. Embellished facts (the book admits to this from the outset) over any real substance on how to apply life's lessons. Jack I know to be better than this. The book really starts to show its true colours when on page 95 Jack talks about the three requirements to be a member of his Transformational Leadership Council- basically that 1) You must already be doing something similar so this can be added to his existing offering (which rules out 99.9% of population) 2) You have to have your ego in check (something not very present in this book) and 3)...yes you've guessed it, you have to have lots of money! The rest of the book as the title suggests is all about `The Golden Motorcycle Gang'- basically an exclusive club of special beings (there are many times where the book treats this as a fact as opposed to the metaphor that it is) that are present on this earth to bring about peace and harmony for all. Yes! You've guessed it- Jack and Bill are members of this elite club.
The spirit of this book is based on an invitation for us all to become members of this 'club' which has as its main aim for as many people across the globe to focus on world peace for one `magical' day next year. Whilst the aim is honorable, this is spoilt by the continual ego trip of the authors and constant endorsements of their friends in the club. Here's the thing....most members of my `Motorcycle Gang' strive to focus on the positive every day and do not feel the need to shout about this from the rooftops.

HASH(0xa47cd204) out of 5 stars too much ego Dec 13 2011
By AnnWhite - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I previously admired Jack Canfield - now, not so much. This is a story of ego - his and hypocrisy when he tells transformational leaders to leave their ego at the door but make sure you are rich enough to join him for meetings in cool places. It starts out great with the theme of spiritual transformation, but quickly nosedives into the ego of his life story - through very tinted rose colored glasses. Waste of time and money.

HASH(0xa47cd4e0) out of 5 stars The Golden Motorcycle Gang Nov. 28 2011
By Nancy - Published on Amazon.com

What a waste of my time and money!!!
I loved the Success Principles and was so disappointed in this book!
Jack is so stuck on himself in this book---I don't know if you could find a bigger ego.
I still am not sure what the purpoose of this book was suppose to be?!
I think it was to help mankind---but you can only do this if you have lots and lots of money and can afford to stay in a super expensive hotel for the meetings, according to Jack.
If they cared so much about people and helping mnakind---wouldn't the money be better spent on a worthy cause or helping the poor?
I don't think I will buy another John Canfield book again!

HASH(0xa47cd3d8) out of 5 stars Not what I expected Nov. 27 2011
By Rick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have spent thousands of dollars on Jack Canfield training. Some products I found very helpful. Advice in the Aladdin Factor increased my bonus by $50,000 each year for several years. The Success Principles, both the book and the seminar, offered much practical and useful wisdom which actually works. This new "novel" is way too New Age for me. Numerology. Mayan prophesies. This book reminds me of Ayn Rand, another self-help author who considered herself a special human being. She left a wake of destruction in her personal life while justifying her bad behavior because she was an exalted person. Ego knows know bounds.

HASH(0xa47cd5c4) out of 5 stars Not very inspiring June 4 2013
By Robin Landry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Where to start on a book that is supposed to uplift the spirit, when it actually does the opposite. Who was it that said that if you want to know the true measure of a person, give them power? Well, with the overwhelming success of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Jack Canfield has been very successful, and in this book, he tells us all about it. Throwing around all the big names of the New Age circle, Canfield tells us about a club they've started where you have to have your own business helping people, AND be making enough money so you and all your 'let's bring everyone together to make a better world' types can meet to discuss the 'unenlightened' in really cool, spa-like settings.

Where is Canfield's 'no' person? I'll bet that Michael Jackson had more realism in his life. For a guy who makes a living bringing the world together, he doesn't seem to be able to get along with the women in his life, considering he's on his third wife.

But my very favorite part of this ode to Jack Canfield's ego, was the story of some New Age giant, who Canfield visited. Apparently this guy had an office that was so 'zen' that there was nothing on his desk but a phone, and nothing but a giant picture of a lion behind the guy. Well, Canfield was so intimidated that he couldn't speak, which is why the guru had such a sparse office, if you ask me. Being so unusual would shock anyone. The new age dude explained to Canfield that his speechlessness was because of the guru's high vibration which opened up so much space, that Canfield couldn't find his voice to fill it. I have to say that I too was stunned into speechlessness--at Canfield's gullibility.

But speaking of gullibility, I bought this book in hardback, at full price at a bookstore. I didn't look first on Amazon where I could have bought it for a buck-fifty used, which would have clued me into what a waste of money this book is. I'll be giving mine to the Goodwill, because even at $1.50, I would feel as though I were ripping someone off.

I couldn't tell if Jack Canfield really remembered being on a Golden Motorcycle before he came to earth, along with his fellow golden riders, set to save the rest of us from ourselves, or if it was just a literary device. All I can say is that, Canfield should stick to gathering other people's stories to continue to grow his wealth. Writing takes a great deal of humility and soul searching, and lots of time in the dark in the dark cave of your shadow, not blazing sunlight of your ego.

I love writers because they do the hard work of mining their own misery for their stories, not giving us all a trip through the Disney Land of their ego.
