When Richard Paul Evans was twelve, 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 also 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.

    Dr. John Nelson, former president, American Medical Association

  • Timothy E. Sick Calgary After reading the first two articles, I had a 73 for the first time in my life, and hadn't played for six months before that.
  • Frank Sadler Professional, Bellingham Country Club, Bellingham, Washington It's the first time words and illustrations have made golfing technique absolutely clear.

  • “Evan’ pithy little financial guide lays out the five principles common to many self-made fortune…Thankfully, Evans forgoes the cloying, self-aggrandizing prose common to how-to-be-rich-like-me books and refrains from padding the volume with ads for tie-in ventures. Instead his friendly advice brings the secrets of wealth accumulation to common readers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “[Evans] would like readers to learn what he learned from a millionaire whom he met as a teenager…The real requirement, Evans posits, is putting into practice five principles of wealth accumulation, which Evans explains and illustrates in cogent, lively terms.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/7/2014

    " I really liked the tips this book gave. There were a number of good lessons. I felt as though he left out some very important things that we need to do though. He doesn't mention an emergency fund, the importance of insurance, where you should save your 10% in as much detail as I would like. Luckily my husband was a business major and I'm taking personal finance so we can fill in the blanks. Over all it was a very good read and I felt like it's simplicity helped me grasp some aspects of finance better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adam | 2/4/2014

    " Quick read. Pretty basic stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 W.C. | 1/31/2014

    " This book is good. Save money and you'll have money. Borrow money and you'll not have money. It really is that simple. Buying debt is the worst purchase you can make, you're really just giving something and getting nothing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 1/29/2014

    " My parents gave this book to all of their children as a gift. I think this is one of the best financial books out there. It's practical, and doable, and makes sense. After reading this, I was fired up to make some financial changes in my life. I feel that if you do follow these guidelines, anyone can be a millionaire! The key is sticking with it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linsey | 1/25/2014

    " Loved it. Very good at explaining basic finances and how to become financially free in a way that I could understand. It was also very easy to read. This is not the book to read if you're looking for a way to get rich. It's simply a self help book to help you overcome the daunting mentality of financial responsibility. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh Davis | 1/19/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 5/9/2013

    " I liked this book due to the simple financial lessons that were taught. The only downfall is that if you have any common sense about money you are probably already using these techniques. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacob | 2/24/2013

    " I would call this a good "reminder." There is nothing new or particularly fascinating about his book. I'm glad I read it because we all need occasional reminders to these true principles but I was disappointed that he didn't add even one insight to the subject. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie | 1/21/2013

    " After I read this book, someone in the finance world told me that the author did not make his millions off books, but rather off pyramid schemes. They didn't think too highly of him. I would imagine all the principles are taught in every finance management books, but it is an interesting read. "
