"The implication of The Millionaire Next Door is that nearly anybody with a steady job can amass a tidy fortune." (Forbes)
The narrator was great. I liked the story as a whole. There were moments when I thought I would have to pinch pennies , but I left very motivated to save and not overconsume!
Fantastic narration of such a perpetually interesting subject. I listened to this on various long drives or walks in my neighborhood - Cotter Smith does a terrific job in keeping what could grow into a tedious subject matter fascinating.
A very enlightening and informative book that will influence the way I do things in the future.
Amazon Is Amazing
the book contains good information but it expand and repeats said information more than is necessary.
Absolutely enjoyed this audio book. learned so much about America's wealthy and how they livw over the long haul
So many myths about how to become a millionaire out there. This book shows in depth research, quality conclusions, and practical steps to become one and how to not prevent the next generation from reaching that level too. It's a must read/listen book.
This audio has a lot of great content but then for some strange reason it starts going on and on about the effects of affluent parents giving their adult children "economic outpatient care". That stuff was pretty interesting for the first 10 minutes or so, but it drags on forever, I kept pumping up the speed on the Audible player hoping they would move on to something else, but they spent so long on it I eventually just moved on to something else myself (a different book). I really don't get why you'd dedicate such a large chunk of a book like this to that particular topic. The overall message there is pretty obvious and unless it's something that affects you personally (hard to imagine that's true for a high percentage of potential readers) it's not very interesting.
This book will certainly change the course of my life and how I think about money and wealth!
I highly recommend!
Just do it...This will be the only book you need for financial incrementing, personal development, and overall wealth building.
Very Sincerely and Respectfully,
"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 .
"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.
"Lots of stats"
predominantly stats, but good info none the less. I can tick it off of my list of books to listen to now.
"Inspiring stories of ordinary people..."
I really enjoyed this book as it is an undeniable collection of data and stories illustrating how ordinary people have accumulated wealth with daily habits and commitments to their goals. It is an eyeopener in places, especially for those of us who feel we have been striving for many years with little progress. I am sure there is something to be learned in this book for everyone. The narration is perfect for the topic and content and is very easy to listen to.
