Loved it. I'll read it again and take notes. A lot of valuable information. It's very important for young employees to start applying the techniques mentioned in this book.
Detailed information on the attitudes and purchasing habits of America's affluent (circa the 1990s). I was saddened to learn that Thomas Stanley passed away last year. He did much to contribute to our understanding of how the wealthy think about risk, displaying status, and what they want for their children. Highly recommend.
I'd definitely listen to this book again. It's a little dry at times and the very dated recording definitely, but otherwise the information is pretty timeless. Live within your means (it's described as below your means in the book), and take careful time to invest your hard earned money. It's not about how much you make, it's about how much you keep--and from my personal experience this is VERY true in life!
Don't listen to it in a single sitting or for extended periods. It'll make it very difficult to understand the hefty amount of information being presented.
This book is not for everyone. Some will find all of the research facts and figures boring. I was captivated and taking mental notes. Though this research was likely all completed in my early years, the truths portrayed are the same today as they will be tomorrow. Big hats are not indicative of loads of cattle.
I couldn't stop listening to it it definitely change my mind about how to become a millionaire I had it wrong all this time thanks to the author for a briefly millionaire lesson
I like the information contained as well as the delivery. There was a lot of "fluff" where duplicate information was shared time and time again. Similar to in the book "the science of getting rich." If that does not bother you then you may not even notice, but the point here is very heavily driven. All in all I am very satisfied with this purchase and will be reading it again I am sure in the future. A+
the book was good. the message is fantastic. while the authors seem to provide conflicting messages about how to handle wealth at the end of life, the overarching message of frugality and discipline is crystal clear throughout. the book doesn't give any recipe for becoming a millionaire, but it does give a framework for how you can head that direction.
How to read this book: find an abridged version, and then only read the first chapter, a chapter in the middle, and the last chapter. To say that this book repeats itself is an understatement. That's not to say that what it's saying is any less valid. I definitely think everyone should read this book, it's just really annoying to read all the way through.
