    "Intermittently dull and interesting"

    I found the material interesting but the writing pedantic. D'Agostino spends too much time describing his own quest (which I found dull and uninteresting) and the discussions he had with the rich people he found (which were interesting). I preferred The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas Stanley & William Danko.

    "Wonderful and Informative"

    There are a number of books, academic and popular, covering the material this book sets out to describe. Some accomplish that task a little better perhaps, but this book is entertaining. The reading is wonderful, the content worthwhile, and the prose entertaining. The author is a great story teller.

    "weak story"

    While listening to the book, I kept asking myself...where's the beef? Sadly, there was none. Just a handful of shallow stories about financially successful folks. So much of the text was incidental to the stories that at times, I found it difficult to keep track of the D'Agostino's thought pattern. Narration was solid.
