Anyone read Busting Loose from the Money Game?
This is a book by Robert Scheinfield. I found the book in the library and decided to check it out, even though the cover looks extremely cheesey. I found the contents intriguing. He goes into the whole, "Life is all in our head, and we literally created it all" thing, but he adds to it in interesting ways (I can't remember the contents, and I don't want this post to be too long). The book also does the marketing thing, where he promotes his seminars and stuff.
Anyway, has anyone read it? Do you think the book has merit? I had to return it, but I'm thinking of checking it out again. You can check out the author's website, where he lays the marketing stuff on thick.

One of my top ten books.
I remember finding it in the bookstore a couple of years back; I couldn't believe what i was reading, but nodding my head the whole time.this guy was saying it in a way I needed to hear the truth at the time. I think I read 70% of the book right there on the spot.
Later on I realized it's straight out Advaita in REALLY plain language. It reaches a demographic that doesn't get "spiritual" stuff like Tolle or Byron Katie. I think the book hasn't done that well because the "money game" Marketing title was aimed at the type A goal setting types,(published by Wiley)and those folks are like: "WTF? How do I make Money?!!!" and the content obliterates that whole paradigm
I'm reading more pure Advaita these days because the message is a little more direct, but Robert has made a great contribution towards self realization and for that I'm thankful.
Robert appears in "Leap!" the movie/documentary where in a "the Secret" type format he and others share their views on non-dualityLeap! Movie - www.leapmovie.com
It's on youtube as well
