    "A UAW walks into a bar and buys a round for all."

    A PAW says thanks and drinks it. A UAW is a prisoner and a PAW is truly free.

    "well worth your time"

    The message is clear: revise your vision of what a wealthy individual looks like, and you are half the way to becoming one. This book demonstrates through countless examples that building wealth is a mountain of small yet important decisions, that when put together have created some of the most successful people in history. This is a life changing study that gives insight to the principles that are easier to talk about than to follow, but if adhered to, will transform your life.

    "Great read. "

    This puts everything in perspective. One of the next books I've read. It makes you see others as PAWs or UAWs....

    Story
    "Reality Hits Hard"
    What did you love best about The Millionaire Next Door?

    I thought the message of how children of millionaire families who receive money as they were adults did worst then those who did not. I liked the suggestions on how to split wealth to offspring in a manner that involved attorneys and one person within the family or the sort. This has to be one of the best books I have completed in the past 70 books I have done in the past four months.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!!!!

    "Interesting points about family and being self-sufficient"

    Not much to say about this book, was not throughly impressed but I found some chapters more interesting than others. I just wanted to be done with this book and move onto the next audible to be honest.

    "Mediocre at best"

    There was some interesting information in the book, but it was not at all what I was expecting. That is my fault for not reading more reviews and summaries before purchasing. This book comes highly recommended from many financial authors and experts, which is why I purchased it, I guess I must be missing something.

    If you love statistics and research data, then this is the book for you!! Because that's basically all it is. It's very repetitive, long, and boring. The overall theme that they repeat throughout the book is, "be frugal, and invest". Common sense advice, but they don't go into any detail about what these millionaires invested in, or what their process was to get there. It would have been much more interesting if they picked a handful of the interview subjects and detailed their journey to financial freedom. I learned a couple of new things, which is what I aim for in any book that I read or listen to, but overall this book was mediocre at best.
