Think, Wisdom, Money
The Richest Man in Babylon. Both seek to teach you wisdom instead of get rich quick schemes. You must be prepared to think or the information will not work for you.
I have not, but I enjoyed Cotter Smith a lot during this and I hope to hear other books done by him.
It forces you to think and if you are wise you will grow in more learning.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to better themselves, learn how to live wisely, and get rich the correct way. It is not for someone who wants a quick get rich scheme or someone who wants to spend a lot of money and be "TV Rich". The people outlined in this book become rich and they are rich because they are smart and know how to handle their lives. I have learned so much from this book and will keep reading it (or listening to it) over and over again.
I found it at the right time in my life. This one is critical to hear. The information will linger in the back of your mind and help guide you on your way to your wealth goals. You are an individual and you will take your own path but this information gives you a baseline for wealth in the United States.
Thomas Stanley tells it like it is in this fact filled tale about what characteristics set apart millionaires from their wasteful counterparts. I bet there are a lot of millionaires wishing they read this book at a younger age.
The Millionaire Next Door is my favorite book of all time. While I enjoyed this followup to it, it was not as profound as the original. It seemed to focus on multimillionaire behavior rather than millionaire behavior which I couldn't relate to as well and seemed very far out of reach. Cotter Smith's performance was excellent.
It's great to learn that millionaires in so many cases are just real people and in many cases are even some of the most frugal. Something that rang true for me was that you have to do what you love. If you're not doing what you love, change your career. After reading this, I'm going to change the direction of my business.
The title, although perfectly accurate, may make many people take a pass on it because they wouldn't want to read a book about millionaires. However, this book isn't so much about millionaires as it is about people. Very ordinary people who share similar traits that eventually and after many years of applying these traits, results in an accumulation of true wealth.
Extremely well researched and written. It is not written about dry and boring statistics, but filled with stories of people with similar traits that are gleaned from a lifetime of research and data gathering.
Cotter's narration is engaging and entertaining. No disappointments. Cotter delivers and makes the book even better.
I would suggest this book to anyone. I actively have suggested this book. Great audio for car rides/ commute. The book gets better and better as it goes on.
I expected a lot after reading the millionaire next door, but this book still managed to surprise. There's a really interesting chapter or two on real estate that is shockingly relevant to today. This book definitely shows that certain values and thought patterns are timeless whether good or bad.
