Informative and Inspiring

This book takes a deep dive into the research that had been done by the late 20th century into the lives of average American millionaires. The picture that emerges is anything but what the media portrays: hard-working, family-oriented, and frugal people from every walk of life. If financial independence is something you'd like to achieve, you'll likely find this book very useful as it tells you how the vast majority of millionaires did it.

An eye opening experience

Before going into this, i had an idea this may contain so me usedul insights. I hadn't expected for it to hit so close to home for me. This book is worth the listen, even if you've done all of the financial programs, and listened to other people say what seems like the same thing. The information holds up in today's changing economy as well as it did when published. Lessons worth learning from, and adapting to.

great information, a little boring

really great book with great information. The whole entire book is statistics of millionaires. It can get a bit boring and repetitive but over all the information was pretty enlightening and something I'm glad that I listen to
