    "Ridiculously redundant"

    How to read this book: find an abridged version, and then only read the first chapter, a chapter in the middle, and the last chapter. To say that this book repeats itself is an understatement. That's not to say that what it's saying is any less valid. I definitely think everyone should read this book, it's just really annoying to read all the way through.

    "The Millionaire Next Door, life changing insights"
    Would you listen to The Millionaire Next Door again? Why?

    I plan to listen to this book once every few months so that I can hear the information and apply the information to my life. This book outlines and details the insights of what millionaires do. The focus is not in how they became rich, but the lifestyles that make them rich. If you want to be wise and become the millionaire next door, then this should be your first book.


    What other book might you compare The Millionaire Next Door to and why?

    The Millionaire Mind, which is the next book in the series. I also highly recommend that one. Think and Grow Rich, it has a lot of the same concepts except this book is more of how the Millionaires live rather than learning Technics like Think and Grow Rich teaches. Personally, I think you should listen to all three.


    Which character – as performed by Cotter Smith – was your favorite?

    Cotter Smith is an amazing reader, I would enjoy hearing him read more books. In this book it is really the Narrator who is talking with a few examples from individual people. Either way, I enjoy Cotter Smith's reading and speaking style.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    How the Millionaire Think and Lives


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book and after you are done with this one read/listen to the Millionaire Mind, then Think and Grow Rich.

    "Insightful"

    Case studies and statistics of spending habits of upper-middle class millionaires, not 1% Billionaire strategy.

    "Great book to listen to"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. The formula is a dated. But still good a good read. Spend on what you really need and don't try to look like a millionaire. Saving is the key to success.

    "Great book!!!"

    Loved it and will be listening to the book again. a definite most read for those looking transition into a better financial state and also for children at least 14 years old. If this was some how taught in school our country would be better off.

    "Worth reading"

    Very informative. Keeping up with the Joneses will only lead to the poorhouse. The people who succeed in life, who create wealth and keep it are too busy minding their own businesses to be concerned with other peoples business . A must read for every young adult before they get their first pay check.

    I am a technology / computer geek and have been since I was 14 years old. Now 33 years old at the time of this description. I enjoy listening to books just before I fall asleep.

    "Older data, but the message is still relevant"

    Narration was very good. Had me desiring more every time I paused the book. It gave me a different look at my low income and that if I'm smart about how I handle things I could retire very comfortable. The take away for me was be frugal now or suffer later.

    I would recommend this to anyone who desire a better life and yet may feel there is no hope of doing so.

    "Great Listen"

    Right up there with titles like Think And Grow Rich, and The Richest Man In Babylon. I especially love chapter five.
