Ryan D'Agostino wanted to know how the extremely wealthy in America got that way. So he asked. Knocking on 500 doors in twenty neighborhoods in the most affluent ZIP codes in America, D'Agostino met with fifty regular (but very rich) men and women who welcomed him in and shared some of their most difficult financial decisions, toughest setbacks, greatest strategies, most triumphant moments, and deepest insights into what it means to have money. D'Agostino covers a range of businesses, from real estate, flower selling, and credit card processing to art dealing, advertising, and even bookselling, gleaning lessons from which everyone can benefit. In Rich Like Them, D'Agostino weaves together what he learned and organizes the text with maxims for achieving wealth, including "Never let pride get in the way of profit" and "When you fail miserably, rejoice." Filled with inspiring stories and straight-up advice, Rich Like Them is a lively and practical get-rich guide that any reader can follow. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • Readers will get a certain voyeuristic pleasure in peering into some of America's richest homes, and they may pick up some useful tips for personal financial success. Library Journal
  • “While D’Agostino freely admits that his sample is far from scientific, weighted heavily to friendly people who happened to be at home when he went calling, his debut is witty and inspiring.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • "Rich like Them not only proves wealth is within the grasp of us all, it also provides a blueprint for how you can make it a reality. It’s a fun and potentially profitable read.”

    Lois P. Frankel author of Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich

  • “Pay close enough attention to the wisdom in Ryan D’Agostino’s fun, fast-paced book and the door he knocks on next time around may be yours.”

    Jean Chatzky, author of Make Money, Not Excuses

  • “There are many wonderful and surprising things about Ryan D’Agostino’s book. The first is that he didn’t get socked in the face for knocking on strangers’ doors and asking them about their private finances. The second is just how much wisdom-about both money and life in general-these people gave him. This is an inspiring read.”

    A. J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Maria | 1/9/2014

    " This is not a book I would normally give four stars, but some of the things D'Agostino said really rang true for me, and have made me really stop and evaluate the way I think about how I approach my work. So for personal reasons, for the nuggets of truth, I give it four stars. "

    " A little dry--reminded me of Joan Rivers' new tv show, how you'd get so rich? "

    " Had a hard time getting into this book. The subject matter sounds interesting because I've always wondered about the people in those huge mansions, but half way thru I lost interest. "

    " Very funny. Not really a book about how to get rich, but has lots of insights on the traits of successful people. "
