    "liked it a lot"

    The narrator was great. I liked the story as a whole. There were moments when I thought I would have to pinch pennies , but I left very motivated to save and not overconsume!

    "Highly recommended"

    Fantastic narration of such a perpetually interesting subject. I listened to this on various long drives or walks in my neighborhood - Cotter Smith does a terrific job in keeping what could grow into a tedious subject matter fascinating.

    "It is possible; just not easy"

    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.

    Story
    "Starts strong"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Makes money sense"

    Sobering read in todays instant gratification world. The chapters in this book will shift most peoples paradigms on wealth and its accumulation. The book provides a sages worth of attitude changing insights into why individuals need to be more conscious of money management. It indirectly also provides hope that with the right money and investment attitude, regardless of the level of current income, one can make steady progress towards a significantly improved financial position over the long run.

    "Spend 8 hours now to save 8 years work( or more ! )"

    A must listen book about personal finance . Much of today's personal finance writing has been inspired by the findings from the studies discussed in this publication . Everyone will learn something about personal finances and importantly themselves in the stories told in The Millionare Next Door .

    "Very interesting and revealing."

    Can be quite stat heavy (which was great for me but might overwhelm some).
    Interesting and revealing makes you consider your own consumption habit and what if any, legacy you will leave behind.

    "Inspiring stories of ordinary people..."

    I really enjoyed this book as it is an undeniable collection of data and stories illustrating how ordinary people have accumulated wealth with daily habits and commitments to their goals. It is an eyeopener in places, especially for those of us who feel we have been striving for many years with little progress. I am sure there is something to be learned in this book for everyone. The narration is perfect for the topic and content and is very easy to listen to.
