    "Not for the sophisticated.."

    The book is an interesting hearing/reading for pensioners or senior citizens...trying to coach them on how to be frugal. However, many people including myself learned the hard way that you have to spend money to make money. It's not a book for the sophisticated or the high networth individual.

    "Everyone should read, despite the flaws"

    The book is really geared towards showing the distinction between truly being wealthy and simply earning a lot of money. Based on the authors research, the book goes into details about how to accumulate wealth and the habits of people who do this well and those who do it poorly. I found the book helped open my eyes further about financially positioning myself for the future. On the downside, I found that the unabridged version was quite repetitive; they just keep pounding the same points home over and over. That and they didn't do a great job at reconciling some of the obvious biases in the results of their research. Still worth a listen, though.

    Story
    "Excellent Story, that tells a lot about the USA"
    What did you love best about The Millionaire Next Door?

    I love knowing that the reason Millionaires become so is because they don't buy status artifacts. I also now know that providing too much support for your children is worse than not supporting them at all


    What did you like best about this story?

    The comparisons


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

    The doctors, the wealthy one and the status one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No I listened as I drove, I drive a lot.

    "A Character Study"

    A good listen but a bit long and redundant. This is not a a how to book, but rather a character study.

    While the authors does a fine job of explaining the differences between PAWs and UAWs, it gives no mention to the remaining and largest percentage of the population... the middle.

    "Good, but long"

    I'm half way through this unabridged audiobook. Good information, but very long - 8 hours! Gets kinda boring sometimes.

    "not going to finish this one"
    What would have made The Millionaire Next Door better?

    It's repetitive. I am tired of listening to the virtues of buying a used Mercedes. I dislike the assumption that the man is the entrepreneur making the money and the woman is home clipping coupons.
