Publisher's Summary

When Richard Paul Evans was 12, his father, a building contractor, shattered both his legs. With no insurance, no income, and eight children, the family was destitute. At that difficult time young Evans was introduced to a kind multimillionaire who taught him the five secrets of wealth. Today, Evans credits those lessons not just with bringing him wealth and success but with bringing him freedom and opportunity in a world where financial slavery is ubiquitous.

In his signature motivational voice, Evans interweaves those influential lessons with personal stories from everyday people. He explains that money should not be the preoccupation of our lives. Rather, if we follow the five principles, we will be free to focus on God, family, and relationships, the true nourishments of life.

Wise and compelling, The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealth will leave you with a new view of what it means to be rich and convinced that you, too, can build wealth. The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealth is endorsed by financial consultants, churches, schools, and marriage counselors.

You cannot afford to be without this book.

immoral

The author laments that usury had ruined his father. His payment of intrest had left nothing for his children. Yet one of the five lessons is the wonder of compound intrest. Aparently it is OK to ruin some other family and not OK to have your family ruined by usury. How do you find someone credible that can embrace that kind of hyprocracy?

A little known gem.

I discovered this book from a family members previously listened list on audible. The title of the book seemed appealing and the book being so short was the icing on the cake. As soon as I began to listen to the foreword, I sensed that I was going to learn something— i was right! This book is straight to the point while also imbedding morally rich stories that make sense to the over five principle of building wealth. I’m content to have found this book, I had never seen it listed on the top 10 financial literacy/wealth building self help book lists but it should be.
Wealth building is simple, looking rich is complicated. I highly recommending reading/listening to The five lessons...
