    • This was perhaps the best book I have ever read. Not only was it funny and quirky, but it introduced me to Christopher Buckley as an author. Anyone who wants a quick read that will have you in stiches should pick up this book.


    • Бакли прошелся по всем книгам о саморазвитии, в частности - о "как стать миллионером не вставая со стула" изданиях. Легкое чтиво, наталкивающее на правильное отношение к разного рода книгам с готовыми рецептами.


    • I have yet to read a Christopher Buckley book that I haven't liked. This was no exception, although it is a bit different from the rest of his novels. Since it's C.B of course it's a satire, but in this case a satire whose message is a bit more in-your-face. If you are a rabid fan of the how-to-get-rich type book, you need to read this for a dose of reality -- not about money-making, but about those books you love.




    • I loved my second read through God is My Broker just as much as the first. The book pokes fun at self-help books, the Catholic church, and Wall Street and had me laughing out loud at multiple points. I don't see how any one - even a self-help book lover - could find God is My Broker anything short of hilarious. I can't figure out why I haven't read any more of Christopher Buckley's books, but I plan to rectify that situation in the months ahead.



    • Бесподобный юмор, веселая и легкая книга. Спивающийся брокер, который бросил все и ушел в монастырь. Тут и начинается самое интересное! Читать всем, кто любит книги про быстрое обогащение :)


    • "Молитва истинного специалиста по самопомощи.Господи, Ты, Который провел народ Свой через долину смерти! Направь стопы мои, когда пойду я по проходам книжного магазина между полками с книгами по личностному росту! Отверзи очи мои, дабы я прозрел и увидел, каким таким личнос [...]


    • If you're a long-time fan of Christopher Buckley's, like I am, you'll probably enjoy this novel too. If you're new to Buckley's work, I'd begin elsewhere. It's not that this book isn't good. It's a fun, quick read and well worth the time. It's just that Buckley has been so much better in his other books.The title of this book might give some people the wrong impression. It has very little to with God and even less to do with investing. It's a satire that pokes good fun at the self-improvement in [...]


    • At his best, Christopher Buckley writes breathtakingly hilarious novels. God Is My Broker is one of them.However, if you’re a devotee of Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, Stephen Covey, Dale Carnegie, or one of the many other high-profile self-help gurus who have streaked across the American firmament over the past century, you may not laugh. But who knows? Since Buckley takes on the Catholic Church with equal verve, you might enjoy the book, anyway.In God Is My Broker, a certain Brother Ty has chu [...]


    • This was my introduction to Christopher Buckley. A slim book that is irreverent and just plain funny.A former stock broker and alcoholic gives up the material world and escapes to the solitude of a monastery. But the monastery is bankrupt and needs financial help. When he stumbles on a vague reference in his prayer book that he sees as a sign from God, it leads him to invest what little money they have in the market. After several mega-successful "tips" from out of the blue, the monastery become [...]


    • Short review: This is traditionally Christopher Buckley. Great satire, good writing. This time the set up is a group of wine making monks. They realize they are broke and start getting desprerate. The abbot reads Deepak Chopra and decides that the monks need to start following the lead of the self help gurus. This is a great skewering of self help books, Wall Street, and a bit of the Catholic Church. The best scene is when the monks take up sides with all the different self help gurus and the Ch [...]


    • This is a fun story that plays with the self-help genre of literature. At the end of each chapter is one of the 7 1/2 Laws of Spiritual and Financial Growth followed by a Market Meditation and a Prayer. My favorites is includes the ideas of "How many times have I put God 'on hold?', Has God ever put me 'on hold?' Is God ever out of cell phone range?" and "And may I always keep Thy private number programmed on my speed dial." It was written so well I kept asking myself if this really happened or [...]


    • Truly a hilarious story. Brother Ty was a down in the gutter, drunk stockbroker who was failing rapidly when he ended up retreating to a monastery. After his requisite two years of silence he finds himself making money for this group of misguided monks hand over fist in the stock market and the story is off and running. The library has this marked as a business self-help tape; I can't imagine what someone would think if they were in search of that type of help and discovered this instead. I feel [...]


    • This book is da bomb man. If you are wondering why Anthony Robbin's and other motivational gurus' teachings just can't get to you, read this 'cause it will cure you of those nagging doubts. But beware, after you are finished with this book, there's probably no turning back. Oh, and it's very funny to boot.


    • Four stars. Yippee! Fun! Yes, I liked this story. To me, Christopher Buckley's books are like the music of Lucinda Williams, or Keith Richards, or a pint of Ben and Jerry's ice cream. It's all great, but there's never enough. This book made me laugh, and kept me amused. Yep, I recommend it.That's all I have to say, 'cept read it.


    • This book was great! Just like all of Buckley's books. At first I wasn't sure whether it was a funny book or a serious one, but I quickly realized that it was a funny one! This book makes fun of all the self help books and it also ties God into the stock market. I can see why it was such a best seller!


    • The blurb says it all: "this is an incredible story" - in other words, the satire starts out so low-key that it's marginally credible, and builds. Yet all the quotes from self-help books are (apparently - I didn't check) authentic. At what point, when reading a self-help book, do you say "this is in-credible"?


    • The book is terrible. The content is poorly developed. The story is so unrealistic, I couldn't even finish it and that's unusual for me. The author should be ashamed of this work. My 5th-grade grandson writes much better. Have I made my point?


    • Brilliant writing, as always, by the humorist/satirist Christopher Buckley. He's one of the very few writers who actually make me laugh out loud while reading. This one's a quick read-- pick it up if you like his style.


    • This is a weirdly interesting book. Not being catholic, I was able to read without taking offense. Brother Ty has a strange outlook on his life as a monk and the way he relates to his former life as a stock broker. It waqs worth readinf though.


    • Отличная книга для тех, кто увлекается книгами по саморазвитию или "как заработать состояние с минимальными вложениями сил и денег". Смешно и грустно одновременно. Отрезвляет и дает понять, что нет универсальных рецептов, каждый ищет путь свой путь в достижении своих целей [...]


    • Qəşəng kitabdır. Necə varlanmağı öyrədən kitablara qarşı, satirik üslubda yazılıb. Məncə bu kitabı oxuyandan sonra self development janrında kitablara qarşı daha seçkin, daha həssas, daha skeptik olursan.


    • Very wicked satire of the "magical thinking" that inflicts the Joel Osteen school of theology; i.e. God is my Broker. Shows how ridiculous this magical thinking really can be when applied to the business world. A must read for both the faithful and the doubtful.
