    Michael Hainey had just turned six when his uncle knocked on his family's back door one morning with the tragic news: Bob Hainey, Michael's father, was found alone near his car on Chicago's North Side, dead, of an apparent heart attack. Thirty-five years old, a young assistant copy desk chief at the Chicago Sun-Times, Bob was a bright and shining star in the competitive, hard-living world of newspapers, one that involved booze-soaked nights that bled into dawn. And then suddenly he was gone.

    What three words best describe Dan John Miller’s voice?

    The reader was fine although I found his interpretation of female voices annoying.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from After Visiting Friends?

    This story would have made an interesting New Yorker article. Instead, there were lots of musings that did not make for a more compelling story. I did find the descriptions of the newspaper culture interesting. Just not enough core material to make for a compelling full length book.

    Listen to the incredible national best seller that is changing people's lives - and increasing their net worth. Also available:
    The Millionaire Mind.

    What would have made The Millionaire Next Door better?

    It's repetitive. I am tired of listening to the virtues of buying a used Mercedes. I dislike the assumption that the man is the entrepreneur making the money and the woman is home clipping coupons.
