In Gratitude

by Charles Richards, Ph.D. on February 24, 2012

To say that I am pleased and surprised at the response to my new book, The Psychology of Wealth, would be an understatement. Since its release on January 17, it has reached the top of multiple bestseller lists in short order. Here are some of the places the book has traveled so far:

#2 New York Times Bestseller
#1 on Wall Street Journal Business list
#1 on USA Today Money List
#1 on Amazon
#1 on Barnes & Noble

Mostly I am grateful to the many people who shared their time, expertise and, most importantly, their awe-inspiring stories of perseverance, courage, and success for the book. I credit much of the book’s warm reception to them. Their hard-won insights about how to make better, more conscious choices about their lives and their finances are clearly resonating with readers. I thank every one of them.

In the face of the upending economic changes we’ve experienced over the past few years, many of us have been reexamining our view of “the good life” and the meaning of prosperity. We’re learning that, contrary to some reports, the American Dream—and an even more encompassing version of it—is alive and well. Real wealth is far more than having money and toys—it is a state of consciousness. How we think and feel is the key to making that dream come true.

Thanks again, everyone.
