    Story
    "Great Money Myths debunked!!!"
    If you could sum up The Millionaire Next Door in three words, what would they be?

    Great Wealth Education


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The authors that did the extensive research about millionaire communities and results of their findings


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

    No specifics...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me want to get even, but also put me at ease in a way that even me was getting caught up in thinking the Jones were rich while it is predominantly a front...but everyone assume their choices.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the fact of the myth that people driving nice cars with big homes were not necessarily wealthy. Its about net worth! One thing I did not like is the idea that millionaires next door had to be overly humble in aspect and life style. I want to be in a neighborhood were it not a surprise that the neighbor is a millionaire..but then that they are truly wealthy...smart millionaires that want to wisely enjoy fine things too and have a good self image.

    "Excellent concepts and story for any level of income!"

    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.

    "Statistics, life is a game of probability."

    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.
