    "Much more than the title implies"

    The author is a high-yield analyst at Merrill-Lynch. He's take some time to research common themes that make a business succeed (or fail). You can, I suppose, use this to try to be a billionaire. You can also use it to simply make your business more profitable (whether you own it or work for it as an employee). You can use these threads to distinguish between attractive investments and unattractive ones, or sort new clients into high-growth and limited-growth prospects. I'm a dissatisfied bookworm, and in my entire life I likely won't give a total of ten 5-star ratings; congratulations, Mr. Fridson, you earned one!

    "Real Life Situations"

    The desire to become a billionaire is not a requirement for reading this book. The book provides great insights and reveals the real terrain one has to navigate to build a successful business. Very blunt for those who want to take the billionaire course. Great reader by the way. Love her voice.

    "Fantastic. A New Staple"

    I have been looking for a book that approaches building significant wealth in a way that is interesting without the childish rehash of popular headlines. This book pulls together the Lessons or Principles very well and also manages to provide excellent in-depth illustrative examples. It's not for a kid looking for a light read; I loved it.

    "Amazing!"

    I was very skeptical going in, books like this are so often invalidated non sense that can misguide the unwary but How to Be a Billionaire really delivers. It will be one of the few I'll re read multiple times.

    "Good book."

    Good book that anylizes different stories of different American billionaires. Becoming a billionaire is a difficult subject to cover because so few have reached this status, but it does give you a decent idea of how others have reached their wealth. You won't be rich just by reading this book.

    "Informative"

    I found it interesting for the most part. The narrator's over pronunciation, especially of Wayne "HUI ZEN GA" was annoying. I'd probably think twice about getting another book that she narrates.
