    "Excellent read. Save, Save, Save!"

    The reality is everything that glitters isn't gold! The book puts an emphasis on saving and protecting your wealth. We must think like the millionaire next door if you expect to attain that status of wealth and leave a legacy for our children.

    "very insightful"

    All I can say is, why didn't I read this book when I was 25? I have learned many of the lessons taught in this book the hard way. I liked is so much I bought a hard copy for my daughter.

    "Disappointing"

    A lot of words to convey an overly simplistic message of "saving your way to wealth"...and a reader that makes u sleep

    Story
    "Good, but common sense"

    This was a book based on facts that everyone know, but few people live by. Don't spend your money, save your money. At the end of your life you'll have more than if you spent it. Duh! Honestly they take it to the extreme with these examples. Like what's the point of working so hard for your money and you never use it?

    "Important read for anyone interested in wealth"

    Great book. Would recommend to many of my friends. The only thing I don't quite get is why anyone would want to be wealthy if leaving that wealth to your kids is not a good idea...

    Story
    "Great wake up call!"

    First off, this has been my favorite narrator out of all the audible books I've "read". Also a refreshing perspective on the wealthy and not another book on how to make money. Making money is easy but most of us are terrible at keeping any of it.

    Story
    "Teaches Wealth Control & Little Building"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, the book focuses on frugal people, which doesn't reflect the real world, this would leave the readers with many unfulfilled questions.


    Could you see The Millionaire Next Door being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe a documentary
