My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The book The Wealthy Gardener: Life Lessons on Prosperity between Father and Son by John Soforic
is a unique cliffhanger from the start.

The author combines intriguing parables on the life lessons of prosperity with nonfiction. This is not a book on ‘how to get rich quick.’ I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author through Booktasters on Twitter. It is a manual packed with tenets of wisdom for a lifetime’s financial dignity. Soforic reveals a deep scope of financial literacy that defines a prosperous life.

‘A way of life’
‘Awakening without money worries’
‘A spiritual journey’
‘A spiritual adventure’


In the book, we met several characters. The Wealthy Gardener, his friends, and his neighbor, and remarkable Jared. The friends of the Wealthy Gardener judge his workaholic life that lacks the balance of living life, as majority of us know it to be (or do we?). John Soforic gives an account of the friend’s advice: ’slow down’, ‘take it easy’, ‘enjoy more leisure’, ‘live for the day’. These are comments we hear every waking moment. You have to read the book to see the response, insight, and feat of the Wealthy Gardner.

The father-son relationship plays out between the Wealthy Gardener and Jared.

This introductory conversation between the Wealthy Gardener and Jared left me in stitches …

‘I hope that phone has an app for pulling weeds’

Sound familiar?

Jared is a young bachelor who moved back in with his parents after he lost both his job and his marriage. What a typical scenario in many homes today? To ease financial pressure, more children that are adults live with their parents today.

It is what I have come face-to-face in my line of work, in particular, in succession tales of family businesses. I deal with two to three generations that use extreme measures to survive in their seasons of wealth, unscathed. The grandfather gets his hands dirty gardening, but the father adores his gadgets. The next generation taps into the success habits of as more than one generation.

A firm foundation of solid and useful principles of money, wealth, and finance run in the book. The comprehensive coverage of financial fear, affluence, prudence, and success is clear. Highlights of meditation and reflection on the secrets of money echo in each chapter.

‘Money, like oxygen, is not too important until there is not enough of it. But when levels run low, it will consume us. Then, every waking hour is spent working for money or worrying about it.’

In this book, you will unearth how those who grasp the financial Holy Grail use their time. Find out the actual way to live life to the fullest and experience meaningful pursuits every day.

You may have an ideal interpretation of prosperity, financial security, and financial freedom. But, the values provided by Soforic call for urgency.

‘Adopt prosperity habits.’
‘Pay the price for an extraordinary life today.’
‘Today is a king in disguise. Let us not be deceived. Let us unmask the king as he passes’ wrote Emerson.


There are answers to life’s questions. ‘Is the price of success worth the rewards?’ ‘Are wild rewards of prosperity possible?’ The Wealthy Gardener provides the answer.

You will not put this book down – startled.

This is a must-read for a parent determined to see their child set up for a prosperous financial success.

It is a priority self-mastery classic for owners of enterprises and businesses.

If you want to debunk the ‘evils of excessive wealth and prosperity’, then this book is for you.

Do you feel trapped and yearn for the freedom to live without the pressure of time?

Are you drowning in voices that tell you to be content with the conditions in your life?

Interact with the author ‘to solve big problems, fit to harvest wealth.’

I give this a 5.0-star rating.

  1. Wow. That seems to be a good read. Those excerpts that you have published… Oh my. What a piece of writing. I am gonna get this book, courtesy your review!

  2. This book sounds wonderful! All the reasons why I need to read this book I mentally checked off. My husband and I have been having a lot of conversations surrounding the financial success of our future and how we can help our children with a similar mindset.

    I am going to purchase this book, your review has me hooked! Thanks for sharing.

    1. You give me so much joy with your authentic comment, Stephanie.
      You and your husband have just found a gem in this book.💎
      The best investment you can give your children is to get them exposed to money matters, debt management and wealth creation at a very early age – even 3 years is not young at all. Teach them to ‘bag the money!’💰
      You could also check out how my twin sibling and I turned out as explained in Crawl Outta Debt Now.
