"The implication of The Millionaire Next Door is that nearly anybody with a steady job can amass a tidy fortune." (Forbes)
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,
This book was very helpful in terms of presented statistics and examples. This book has enlightened me to strategize future non-profit fundraising efforts in how to approach audiences as discussed in this book.
I am a facts and research type person when it comes to books like this. I love the reasoning and the results from studies that went into making this book. The results and findings from their research make quite an impact in why these methods, thoughts, and ideas work in making someone more successful in what they're doing.
I enjoyed this book quite a bit and will no doubt listen again.
Great narrating and storylines. Good commonsense book that may help folks unlock the potential, positive, long-lasting effects of asset accumulation. Lots of lessons can be learned by reading this book. There were lots of points that I was already aware of, but the narrator really brought them home.
I liked it. Thanks!
