Quotes & Awards

  • The Millionaire Mind is a very good book that deserves to be well read.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “After surveying over a thousand rich folk in The Millionaire Mind, Stanley tells us that the typical millionaire had an average GPA and frugal spending habits—but good interpersonal skills.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Besides offering insights into millionaires’ pinchpenny ways, Stanley’s book booms with human-potential peptalk and bristles with anecdotes—for example, about a bus driver who made $3 million, a doctore (reporting that his training gave him zero people skills) who lost $1.5 million, and a loser scholar in the bottom 10 percent on six GRE scores who grew up to be Martin Luther King, Jr. Read it and you’ll feel like a million bucks.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Ideas bigger than the next buck.”

    Orlando Sentinel

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Trent | 2/16/2014

    " If you want to become a millionaire, you should buy a Ford Taurus, shop at JCPenney, live in a small, old house and put your money in a savings account or under a mattress... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cliff | 2/11/2014

    " I've read this book twice now. It amazed me both times although it is a bit clinical and boring at times. What people don't know about the rich is exactly what keeps them from being rich. Most people in America think being rich means driving a fancy car and wearing expensive clothes. What a joke. That explains why our country is bankrupt morally and financially. This should be required reading for Congress. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassandra Sells bushman | 2/2/2014

    " This book really changed how I view wealth, I read it in college and learned a lot! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Wolfley | 1/28/2014

    " This book was probably the most effective at getting me to change my perspective on wealth, personal finance, and the way I view the world. I am so grateful to Dr. I who lit a fire under my bum to get cracking on budgeting and fixing my unhealthy view on wealth and money. If you think you are going to be a millionaire, or even if you would just like to be one, you won't understand how to get there until you read this book. Very few of America's millionaires are rap artists and professional athletes. Most of them got there by hard work and a whole lot of sacrifice. Not what you wanted to hear? Saving your money and driving a used car doesn't have a lot of sex appeal but it makes you financially independent and what could be sexier than that? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deserea | 1/26/2014

    " Although the monetary details may be a little dated, this was an excellent book clarifying habits of savers that end up wealthy versus spenders trying to look like millionaires. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kierstin | 1/25/2014

    " Interesting reading. Pretty much sums it up that if you want to be wealthy, you have to live a frugal lifestyle and live well below your means. Then you need to take the money you Dave and invest it wisely. You should be actively involved in your investing decisions and find good financial and legal service people to advise you. Will do! Maybe someday I will be the millionaire next door. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/23/2014

    " A great book that gives some excellent advice such as be frugal, frugal, frugal! I see plenty of evidence all around me that high income doesn't equal wealth. If you want to be wealthy work hard and save even harder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adeel Hasan | 1/12/2014

    " Must read for everyone as soon as they are starting on their jobs. "

    " This book reminds me of why I should continue to pinch my pennies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Seth | 1/8/2014

    " not bad. kinda repetitive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 1/5/2014

    " I was hoping for more from this book (okay maybe how to make a fast million). But I didn't get the money... but I am glad I read the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joseph | 12/30/2013

    " Let's see if you save and dont spend you will be a millionaire. Who knew? "

    " I loved this book. Even though I'm not a millionaire, I learned so much about saving money and not showing what you have on the outside. Loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisadunbar22 | 10/29/2013

    " Giving up on this one....too much serious research. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TimFriday | 6/5/2013

    " I need to read this one again, and look at the charts in the back. "

    " Gives you a better view of the lifestyle of building wealth and the dangers of dependency on others. "

    " This is a study about how "true" millionaires live....Frugal! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eva Foegeding | 7/29/2011

    " Be fruggle, invest in what you know, and make investments that are not realized income to decrease income tax. Don't buy a house that is more than twice your realized income because the morgage will be too high to pay off (ex. 80,000 means don't buy a house greater than 160,000. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Taylor | 4/14/2011

    " Really a poor book mostly because there isn't much more information than in his first book The millionaire next door. This book has updated info from millionaires but you really don't learn anything more than the first book. So I recommend the first one and to leave this one to the side. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lex | 4/2/2011

    " This was very interesting and fascinating. It's fun learn about what makes a millionaire tick. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad | 3/30/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaye | 3/28/2011

    " I thought this book was very eye opening. It made me consider habits and ways of thinking that I had and see what type of impact they could be having on my "potential" millionaire status. A very important book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ericaisrich | 2/21/2011

    " It is one of its kind. The examples were practical. Language was easy to understand. Fact got stuck in my head which means the book got its message across. "

    " Surprising findings. Not what you would think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Spencer | 12/12/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 12/7/2010

    " This book is fabulous!! I actually have the CD's and just keep it in my car... i ALWAYS find something new it seems I missed previous. I'm currently listening for I think the 3rd or 4th time. Maybe one day it will sync in with my thinking! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 9/13/2010

    " A great book that corrects the myths about millionaires. They are not workaholics, they spend a lot of time with their family, and are mostly private and conservative stewards of their money. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richmond | 5/6/2010

    " I like the Millionaire Next Door Better "
