Book Review: Wink and Grow Rich By Roger Hamilton

Book Review: Wink and Grow Rich By Roger Hamilton

Reviewed by Vicky Powell, Good Returns

Wink and Grow Rich is an enchanting tale that claims to hold the key to your wealth. It is a story about a young boy growing up in a life of poverty, who is sent on his daily ritual to get water from the “well of wealth”. For centuries people in his village had made it a habit to visit the well of wealth every day without fail, believing that by giving generously to the well, it would give generously to them in return.

Even after having read this book, some of its contents frustratingly remain an enigma. However I encountered many ‘ah-ha’ moments, which made perfect sense and I muse why no-one else has imparted this knowledge previously.

But one day the boy chose a different path that would change his life forever. On his journey he meets a range of intriguing characters and mentors along the way, who each bestow upon him words of wisdom which he is left to interpret.

I can’t delve too much into the story without giving away the plot, but this is a delightful tale within which holds some real gems of wisdom. It won’t take you long to read, and as the author recommends, you probably need to re-read the book a few times to appreciate each lesson.

As Hamilton says, “Please use this story as you would a watering can. The more you sprinkle it, the more you will grow.” Hamilton is touted as Asia’s leading wealth consultant, becoming a millionaire in his late twenties and retiring at the age of thirty. He now owns seven businesses in various industries and focuses on coaching people to wealth via seminars.

If you’re wondering why you haven’t achieved absolute abundance yet, then this book could well be the key that unlocks your passion for creating wealth.

Wink and Grow Rich is just $19.95 inc GST.
