"The implication of The Millionaire Next Door is that nearly anybody with a steady job can amass a tidy fortune." (Forbes)
Live below your means is the moral of the story. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
The narration was great, no problems there.
I listened to this book in Nov 2015, so being 20yo a lot of the information, examples, income statistics and costs are very dated. However, the general ideas and concepts are timeless.
Would love to see an updated version or at least the $$ figures updated to 2015 levels.
I've been struggling with money so much. but now that I've learned how to keep what I've earned especially being a small business owner it will be much easier to save for retirement.
Really shed a lot of light and in great detail as to the lies and spending patterns of millionaires… It is like a blueprint to how to live to be calm and manage life as a millionaire
Very good book, would recommend to college freshmen and young people to read. Wish I read this book 10 years ago.
Very detailed and specific with career paths and how to achieve million dollar status.
Amazing book that teaches you a wealth of knowledge about millionaires and thus makes you more likely to become on if you position yourself to fit those probabilities.
It's so riddled with facts that I couldn't even listen anymore. If you're looking for advice on how to play it safe with your money to earn the title of "millionaire" then this book is for you. Don't waste your time or money on this book if you want to make millions. If you know anything about accounting, you know that profit = income > expenses. I'd rather be a multi-millionaire and live like a millionaire than be a millionaire and live like a middle class chump.
"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.
Fantastic this book has changed my life. This book is also recomended to me by Brian Tracy
"Spend 8 hours now to save 8 years work( or more ! )"
A must listen book about personal finance . Much of today's personal finance writing has been inspired by the findings from the studies discussed in this publication . Everyone will learn something about personal finances and importantly themselves in the stories told in The Millionare Next Door .
"eye opener "
showed me different outlook on wealth really good book very educational i would highly recommend
I have listened to many wealth books and found this one quite different and very, very interesting. For example there was a section about how children of the wealthy can be inspired to be independent rather than just spend their parents' money. There was also insightful information about inheritance. Although the book is American and a little old now, I believe these principles still hold.
I did not expected to enjoy this book, but I did. I could not believe when the audiobook came to an end, I was so engaged.
I would very much recommend this book. I would say a must for parents who have adult children they are supporting, or those considering how to pass on their wealth to their offspring in the future.
"Nice read, no regrets."
It is a book that makes sense though some things were overemphasised but was necessary. The points were clear and reasonable.
"It all adds up."
Short but alot packed into it. worth listening to a few times.
very clear message it blows alot of the myth out of the sky.
So contrary to the public perceived image of how most millionaires are made or live
"Very interesting and revealing."
Can be quite stat heavy (which was great for me but might overwhelm some).
Interesting and revealing makes you consider your own consumption habit and what if any, legacy you will leave behind.
Amazing book. learned so much about finince and money management!!! Great now a need a new gym book.
