Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob Johnston | 2/17/2014

    " What I learned: Be frugal and marry an equally frugal teacher (hopefully an attractive one). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo Simpson | 2/10/2014

    " Ever want to take your financial dealings properly in hand! This is certainly the book for you! The information stored within it changed my attitudes towards saving, spending, and investing. A financial bible in times of recession. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cliff | 2/9/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amie | 2/4/2014

    " Great read on understanding the importance of saving vs spending. Becoming a millionaire is more about your attitude than it is about how great your income stream is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick Schultz | 1/29/2014

    " This book makes me think... maybe the guy next door who has a small house and drives a ten-year-old car is a millionaire! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jillian | 1/28/2014

    " I found this book soo entertaing! I love how it said Scottish people were frugal, lol...my husband is Scottish and yeah-that's true! Basically it says most people who have money have it b/c they work hard and save it. I liked that. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steph | 1/28/2014

    " I love the IDEA of this book, but I thought it was pretty boring to read, to be honest. I think I could read a synopsis of this book and get enough out of it for my interest. Great, great principles, but not very readable. (At least for me, since I have so little time to read, so I need something that really draws me in!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jcznrbland | 1/14/2014

    " This book was recommended during my Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University class. I learned that most millionaires live below their means. If someone "looks" like a millionaire, they probably don't have a lot of net worth. There is a difference between high income and truly wealthy. Most of the millionaires do not have high monthly income (salary). Most of their wealth is from investments, savings, and other non-taxable income. The authors studied the habits of millionaires and compiled an interesting database of facts. Some of the math was incomprehensible to me, but what they gleaned from the results was interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara | 1/13/2014

    " Another perspective on what to do with money, and why being frugal is a better than being consumerist and shallow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Kinsley | 1/10/2014

    " A completely eye-opening look into the real habits of TRUE millionaires. This is one of a small list of books that has laid the foundation for how I think about money, business, class, and politics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derek Walker | 1/7/2014

    " Very interesting book analyzing common traits amongst millionaires. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fed | 12/29/2013

    " A good way to spend a couple of hours reading. A nice narrative with good advice on money management. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 12/27/2013

    " Pretty standard stuff about establishing wealth by spending less than you earn. Super repetitive, but isn't that what this kind of nonfiction is all about? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffani Morgan | 12/22/2013

    " Gives you perspective on money and the emphasis society gives "class" and who appears to be wealthy versus who really is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trevor Acy | 12/12/2013

    " Discover how real American millionaires became self-made and continue to live their life as if nothing has changed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Narda Oteo | 12/6/2013

    " Interesting read. Makes you look at people differently which is always good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Azmir Ismail | 9/20/2013

    " I liked this book as it shows that millionaires can be of different types and styles. And the insights such as cars and stuff the millionaires revealed were a bit surprising. Inspiring to those who want to become millionaires but not sure what to be to be a millionaire. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 DeeDee H. | 8/30/2013

    " It was interesting to learn how down to earth and unpretentious most millionaires are. They are just regular people living well below their means. No rocket science there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pierce | 8/18/2013

    " Makes you think about you spend and save "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donovan | 6/19/2013

    " Pretty basic - but message is good - save, use cash, and don't overspend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JoAnn | 4/7/2013

    " Interesting and revealing to read. I got this book from my Dad when I was a junior in college - along with a note urging me to continue my practice of giving 10% of my income to charitable causes and 15% towards retirement. I still use and recall the things this book taught. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chadwick | 3/4/2013

    " The data may be outdated (early 90s), but the principles are pretty timeless, I think. Great book if you're interested in financial security. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin Sywulka | 1/26/2013

    " America's Millionaires are wealthy, not because they have a high income, but because they are low consumers, they are frugal, they save, they by everything at a discount. Very interesting and useful informationl. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Jones | 9/19/2012

    " Good insight, lots of statistics though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jemie | 7/30/2012

    " It's a good way to show the lifestyles of the standard millionaire in the US. Apparently, majority of them do not live the way our media depicts them to be. Anyone who's curious/interested to know about the lives of the rich and wealthy will enjoy this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 7/1/2012

    " Repetitive, outdated, and sexist. But the main point stands that frugality (living well below your means), not high income, is the secret to wealth in America. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 6/3/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Britney | 4/24/2012

    " This book had some very interesting information in it. I think it would be interesting to see what some of their statistics say about the last 10 years and if some of their theories and conclusions still apply. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adeel Hasan | 12/28/2011

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 4/24/2011

    " Very illuinating. Turns lots of preconceived notions about what millionaires "look like" on their heads and offers some interesting data to back it up. Kind of dry and slow at times (I skimmed a lot of charts), but worth a look. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 4/19/2011
