Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danniell | 2/20/2014

    " I loved this book. Has alot of statistics. Interesting information. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 2/19/2014

    " This book was much more detailed than I expected, but still a good read - lots to learn. I found their research quite interesting. I'm not trying to go out and get rich quick, which is good, beacause this book confirms the attitudes of hard working and saving. "

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

    " This isn't another get rich book, but rather an in-depth, statistical analysis of our nation's millionaires. It puts a strong emphasis on the distinction between earning and accumulating money. Many high earners spend the majority of their income on fancy houses and status objects rather than living well below their means and accumulating savings. The authors also point out that with the right attitude and financial habits, nearly anyone can reach millionaire status even if they do not have a six-figure income. With a special section dedicated to physicians, I found I could really relate to this book. It was a very interesting read and it has had a positive impact on how I will handle my personal finances both now and in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette | 2/1/2014

    " Spectacular read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JoAnn | 1/30/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyson | 1/26/2014

    " This is a rather interesting look into how millionaire's are actually made. That the people you think are millionaires, since they look the part, aren't actually. "

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

    " everyone should read this book at least once... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 towner77 | 1/20/2014

    " Liked the book, but unfortunately it didn't spur me on to that pot of gold. Read it when it was on the NYT Bestsellers list. "

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

    " Should be required reading for grade school students. Loved it! "

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

    " A good description with a lot of supporting data about how the wealthy live and behave. On the whole, the book seemed a bit academic for my taste. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harrisbetrue | 12/24/2013

    " an interesting look into the minds and lifestyles of most millionaires - contrary to the way they're portrayed in the media. however, it was a book filled with too many numbers and stats that made it a bit boring at times. it's also outdated - published in '96. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim George | 12/24/2013

    " A good read. I guess I should have married my high school sweetheart - then I'd be rich! Lots of relevent information gathered from a marketing standpoint, and tweaked to show successful financial traits of some people. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naiyana | 12/24/2013

    " I thought this book was interesting but very redundant. There were too many numbers and statistics involved for my liking. What I did learn is that I am a pretty frugal person which is one of the main characteristics of people who are millionaires. Maybe someday! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Polina | 12/20/2013

    " Interesting statistics that paint a real world picture of your every day millionaire - it is far from the caviar eating, permanently holidaying ideal the media would have us believe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Katharine Gill | 12/17/2013

    " This book doesn't make it sound like any fun to have money. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie LGW | 12/6/2013

    " Lots of good information and things to think about. Keeping up with the Joneses is so 2008. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 12/5/2013

    " Information was a little dated as far as facts and figures, but the concepts remain the same. Interesting to see how wealth is or is not passed down in families. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 9/12/2013

    " Confirmed what I've always believed about the habits of the wealthy. My penny pinching may pay off yet! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donovan | 8/30/2013

    " 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 Jim Vanderheiden | 6/18/2013

    " Makes that status more human and real "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin Carpenter | 5/26/2013

    " my dad made me read this one... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dustin Jennings | 1/17/2013

    " This has been our financial bible for years. (Actually, Mike would love to give this as a wedding present, and it really is that valuable.) It is easy to understand and apply. I can't recomend it more for someone looking to chart their financial course. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cordell | 7/24/2012

    " An excellent book on money. IT is not about how to get rich or how to make money, but it does tell you a lot of things that if you pay attention will aid you with your money. The average millionaire is frugle, blue collar, and saves. But these is so much more to it than that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 7/16/2012

    " There are basically 2 ways to generate wealth...1-Live within your means, or 2-Increase your means. This one is about living within your means. It's a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/24/2011

    " Good insight, lots of statistics though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 5/10/2011

    " I had to read this one for school. (I don't know that I would have picked it up otherwise) For a required reading I thought was interesting and insightful. "

  • 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

    " Everyone can learn something from reading this book. It dispels a lot of myths about wealthy people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 4/12/2011

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 4/10/2011
