Members also get a copy of the book Shift Your Mind that I wrote as a sequel to Fearless. Just for being a member. In that book, not yet available to the general public, I open everything with a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:
"A political victory, a rise of rents, the recovery of your sick, the return of your absent friend, or some other favorable event raises your spirits, and you think good days are preparing for you. Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Principles! How powerful they can be. And how shameful our politicians look when they don't have any.
One very principled man is Jim Manton, an author and leadership coach. His book The Secret of Transitions is worth reading. He was one of the early reviewers of The Woman Who Attracted Money, and he said,
"Steve Chandler has completely reinvented the mystery genre! Finally an author who has the creative courage to write a gripping suspense novel without dragging the reader through endless pages of low life sleaze, gratuitous violence, or an implausible hero with comic book super powers."
"But wait, there even more. Chandler's protagonist, Robert Chance, is a character you will never forget. An ex-cop turned life coach will rock you with the best coaching dialogue ever written. No other book combines suspense and uncommon wisdom in a way that will at once entertain and elevate you. Without question, The Woman Who Attracted Money is the freshest and most contemporary crime story of the decade."
Jim Manton, Author of The Secret of Transitions

Early reviews in addition to Jim's are coming in:
"If you're a coach, read this book. If you're a mystery buff, read this book. It you're a romance fan, read this book. If you want a great story filled with wisdom, humor, and intrigue, read this book. Steve Chandler does it again: delights and dazzles us with his generous insight and creativity! Great stuff and highly recommended."
Robert Tallon, Co-author of Awareness to Action

"Chandler has created a character to believe in, a 200 pound Buddha named Chance who can knock off 200 pushups and still admit he learned the hard way that, 'Real power was found in the simplest truth.'
"A former police investigator and now a 'life coach,' Chance is the well-read Philip Marlowe who loves Emerson and trains in left brain/right brain martial arts with the mysterious Wu Li. Chance's first clue to solving the reported death of one of his clients is not a bloody glove but a grammar error in a suicide note. His final clue comes to him in a dream.
"The Woman Who Attracted Money is an easily devoured book of fresh locales, delicious plot twists and spicy dialogue, topped with a generous helping of suspense, wisdom and romance."
Jack Cooper, Author of Across My Silence

I love the Kevin Costner movie For The Love of the Game. I love the scene where his girlfriend says to him, "What if my face was all scraped off and I was totally disfigured and had no arms and legs and I was completely paralyzed. Would you still love me?"
And he replies, "No. But we could still be friends."
In my seminars and training sessions I used to have the hardest time teaching the value of coming from nothing. Of being neutral. Of not carrying the baggage of the past into a conversation. It always sounded too Eastern. Too Zen. Then came Costner and his Love of the Game baseball movie. In it his character, a pitcher, resurrects his career on the mound by learning to "clear the mechanism" before throwing a pitch. Emptying his mind. When I talk about it that way and cite the movie, people in the workshop start smiling and nodding their heads.
Gotta love baseball. It's amazing how life imitates baseball.

What? Are there any more early reviews? Here's another:
"The Woman Who Attracted Money is a clever murder-mystery woven with psychological acuity. While highly entertaining, it subtly provides the key to unlocking our own success. Chandler has written yet another masterpiece."
Brenda Lee, Author of Out of the Cocoon: A Young Woman's Courageous Flight from the Grip of a Religious Cult
