3.0 out of 5 starsLike everyone else said, no secrets here
Reviewed in the United States on January 27, 2019
Book provides some pretty good stories on how the rich live and even with their elite status how they still aren’t perfect at managing their money. However, the title is misleading because there were no secrets in the text. Gave the book 3 stars because the stories were interesting.
This is one of the better books about modern wealth and the many meanings and psychologies around money. It is not an investing book, but is much more valuable. He really discusses what money can and can't do what it means to people's happiness and lives. Now, his perspective Is only really relevant to the top 5-10 percent of earners, but it is still useful
Some good pts Some sections similar to Millionaire Next Door in terms of identifying successful traits of wealthy. Significant portion of book discusses income inequality, pyschology of money, behavioral finance. I would have enjoyed more focus on successful traits of the wealthy as opposed to so much time on these other areas.
Doesn't focus on any money secrets of the super wealthy. Lots of common sense stuff in here and anecdotes. Not what I was looking for but not a bad book. I wanted more of a how to with tips, didn't want to read chapters about athletes and people who bought baseball teams.
The book gives support to the basic concepts of living within your means and directing your money towards tools that will increase your wealth rather than detract from it. The downside, no real insights in the book or concrete tips to further improve your wealth. A decent book but has the feel of having filler the further into it you get.
Interesting book. Enjoyed the statistics and found it an engaging look into how people view money. For me the value in this book was not in the financial advise but the insight into the behavioural aspects on how money is managed.
