There are numerous books that guide readers to better finances, health, happiness, and sudden millions. But “The One-Minute Zillionaire” is a lot more entertaining. “Success books teach you about principles, habits, making affirmations, and setting preposterous goals,” says Christensen. “There are also expensive seminars where attendees listen to motivational speeches and then walk barefoot across hot coals.
