    To become a millionaire, you have to think like one. The Millionaire Mind shows you how. Also available: The Millionaire Next Door.

    "Too many statistics"
    Overall

    In my humble opinion this book is horrible!
    It does shed some light into the misconceptions about building wealth, but it also drones on and on, repeatedly reporting on compiled data, and statistics.
    He also seems to report on the same data sets over, and over and over yet again.
    Honestly, if you enjoy quarterly reports and statistics, this book may be tolerable.
    Otherwise prepare yourself for a 12 hour report on virtually every conceivable statistic relating to the personal lives of millionaires.

    This work should have been compiled as one large spreadsheet and marketed as such.

  • Bright-sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America

    Americans are a "positive" people - cheerful, optimistic, and upbeat: this is our reputation as well as our self-image. But more than a temperament, being positive, we are told, is the key to success and prosperity. In this utterly original take on the American frame of mind, Barbara Ehrenreich traces the strange career of our sunny outlook from its origins as a marginal 19th-century healing technique to its enshrinement as a dominant, almost mandatory, cultural attitude.

    "Not so great"
    Overall

    I hesitate to give a bad opinion of this book.
    Her book, "Nickel and Dimed" was great in my opinion, but she's gone down hill since.
    With each new book, she sounds less like an objective observer and commentator (as in Nickel and Dimed) and sounds increasingly like a bitter conservative radio talk show host. I couldn't help but to visualize a constant condescending sneer on her face with each new paragraph. Not sure, it actually could have been the selection of narrator on this project that made it hard to listen too or take very seriously.
    As much as I would love to recommend this one, I can't do it. I can get this kind of gratuitous negative commentary for free during drive time.
