This is not a get-rich-quick book, but it will tell you how to be a millionaire in 3-7 years. Plus there are 12 inspirational stories of everyday people from all backgrounds, from people with graduate degrees to high school dropouts, and from yard guys to corporate professionals. Really, the only thing they all have in common is that they've put $1,000,000 in the bank (or will shortly).
Part I is about how to pick a tried and true business model that you know works, and then how to find the help you need to get started.
Part II is about money: how to find it, how to spend it, and how to save it.
Part III is about the basic sales and marketing skills critical to starting your business.
Lastly, Part IV is about the personal skills critical to maintaining your business. You don't have to stop at $1,000,000.
You don't have to stop at one business or $1,000,000. But this book is where you start.

Overall I thought this was an enjoyable listen. The core message of the book spoke to me - it's essentially that there are lots of run-of-the-mill businesses out there that anyone can start which can build wealth. My favorite part were the examples sprinkled throughout. There was nothing profound, per se, but I found the case studies very interesting.
There were some obvious editing issues - randomly repeated sentences, for example. But I decided that those didn't affect my enjoyment, so I'm not holding it against them.
