The content of this book still bodes true today. Although I wonder if the benchmarks of wealth are anywhere near where they were at the time of writing.
This book states the obvious. Live below your means, don't drive a fancy car, live in the most upscale neighborhood and blow $5k on a suit. Didn't need to read the book to figure that one out
Drives home the point of not spending out of your income level and investing. This will eventually make you a millionaire. There is your summary right there.
Millionaires don't drive nice cars, millionaires don't by $2000 suits, etc. Has some good facts to back things up, but then never really progresses.
I learned a lot about the principles of accumulation of wealth
Very helpful and insightful book
Even though I disagree with many of its principles, I highly recommend this book. It's really going to challenge the outlook most people have on money.
focus on savings not consumption and place energy in investing and not keeping up with the Jones's. The problem is that most people are focused on status rather than wealth accumulation.
This book changed forever my perception of millionaires. It has also shifted my paradigm of wealth accumulation and lifestyle choices. I walk away from this book with renewed determination to be more frugal with the intent of retaining my personal financial independence. Excellent read. Timeless financial advice. A financial book that every young adult should read and every retiree re-read. Audio presentation was well done.
