    Story
    "Interesting Insight Delivered by Top Narrator"
    If you could sum up The Millionaire Next Door in three words, what would they be?

    Wealth = Offense + Defense


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Millionaire Next Door?

    Gaining insights that suggest how real wealthy people behave, as opposed to the rubbish presented in media.


    What about Cotter Smith’s performance did you like?

    Cotter Smith is a rock star. I wish all audio books were performed by Cotter Smith. Purchasing Thomas Stanley's next book, The Millionaire Mind, was largely influenced by the fact that Cotter Smith was once again the narrator.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Millionaire Next Door?

    Average Accumulation of Wealth (AAW) = (age/10) * annual income
    Prodigious Accumulation of Wealth (PAW) = 2 * AAW
    Under Accumulation of Wealth (UAW) = 1/2 * AAW


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not a strategy or "how to" like many other books in the genre, like Rich Dad, Poor Dad or Total Money Makeover. But it provides a different point of view - a statistical point of view - as to the habits and priorities of wealthy people.

    "It was worth it to finish reading, for me"

    The book is amazing for the first half. After a while you notice the trends. Later it gives more and more new subjects I hadn't thought about as it pertains to wealth until your paradigm has totally shifted. And thankfully it gives advice!

    "Makes money sense"

    Sobering read in todays instant gratification world. The chapters in this book will shift most peoples paradigms on wealth and its accumulation. The book provides a sages worth of attitude changing insights into why individuals need to be more conscious of money management. It indirectly also provides hope that with the right money and investment attitude, regardless of the level of current income, one can make steady progress towards a significantly improved financial position over the long run.
