Cash in a Flash: Fast Money in Slow Times

Mark Victor Hansen, Author, Robert G. Allen, Author . Harmony $23 (372p) ISBN 978-0-307-45330-3

Hansen, cocreator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, and Allen, a personal finance author, share strategies for generating more income within 90 days (reprising the two-books-in-one format used in The One Minute Millionaire ), which offers step-by-step instructions as well as a fictional narrative to illustrate key points. The authors list three key elements of their plan for success: create a clear vision of one's ultimate objectives, silence the “inner whiner” and release the “inner winner,” and gather a team of like-minded individuals for support and guidance. Such advice as “Ask yourself empowering, uplifting, emboldening questions” helps retrain the mind to help the reader to focus, identify clear aims and unleash ambition. The book also addresses the next steps: converting ideas into cash, turning problems into profits and numerous ways to profit from intellectual property. Inspiring and practical, Hansen and Allen's legion of fans will find much of value. (Sept.)
