    "Excellent!"

    Very interesting information that's well narrated. This book will shatter many illusions you might have about the wealthy. A good guide for young people on how to accumulate wealth and then hold onto it.

    "Get the abridged version"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a great book. The information in it will help you grow wealth if you follow it.


    What other book might you compare The Millionaire Next Door to and why?

    The richest man in Babylon.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Cotter Smith’s performances?

    No because he was a boring reader.


    Any additional comments?

    Get the abridged version. This one has about 2 hours of information repeated over and over.

    "Too Basic and TOOOO Slow"

    The theory is good, data interesting but poorly presented. They give a point then spend a half hour giving examples of each point. Get to the point man, can't make it past the first few chapters.

    "MUST 4 those who r beginning to earn & save Money"

    This work is really an eye opener. It has tremendously changed the way I spend and save money. Many myths about money and rich have just vanished. The work is very well researched. Though the context of the whole story is US society, it made a lot of sense. Thanks to the authors. And narration is wonderful and too good. I have started looking for other works of Cotter Smith. Great Audio book.

    "One of the Best!"
    What did you love best about The Millionaire Next Door?

    One of the best books I've listened to recently on Wealth building. It was well narrated and easy to listen to.

    "Great topic with lack luster narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I might recommend it so long as you can maintain your focus. The narration is very dull which makes it a bit difficult to focus on and not get distracted.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cotter Smith?

    Nick Sullivan, who narrated "Financial Peace" by Dave Ramsey is an excellent narrator!


    Was The Millionaire Next Door worth the listening time?

    I havent yet finished it. I have to do so in doses and on top of that, I'm listening to 2 other books, so I cant say just yet. So far though, yes, for the content.

    "Dissapointed"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    An accountant


    Would you ever listen to anything by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko again?

    probably not


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    the narrator was good


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    A bit of anger, I don't know any one who gets wealthy, healthy, and happy from hard work. I know quite a few wealthy people that work smart and balance their lives, to them hard work is disconcerting.


    Any additional comments?

    Will stick to my plan.

    "Great Insights on Millionaires!"

    Easy to listen to audio with great insights on the trends of truly wealthy people. I recommend this listen to anyone who wants to understand the difference between wealth consumers and wealth accumulators.
