"Why aren't I as wealthy as I should be?" Many people ask this question of themselves all the time. Often they are hard-working, well educated middle- to high-income people. Why, then, are so few affluent. For nearly two decades the answer has been found in the bestselling The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America's Wealthy, reissued with a new foreword for the twenty-first century by Dr. Thomas J. Stanley. According to the authors, most people have it all wrong about how you become wealthy in America. Wealth in America is more often the result of hard work, diligent savings, and living below your means than it is about inheritance, advance degrees, and even intelligence. The Millionaire Next Door identifies seven common traits that show up again and again among those who have accumulated wealth. You will learn, for example, that millionaires bargain shop for used cars, pay a tiny fraction of their wealth in income tax, raise children who are often unaware of their family's wealth until they are adults, and, above all, reject the big-spending lifestyles most of us associate with rich people. In fact, you will learn that the flashy millionaires glamorized in the media represent only a tiny minority of America's rich. Most of the truly wealthy in this country don't live in Beverly Hills or on Park Avenue-they live next door.
Book came quickly and securely packaged. It was in better shape than I thought it would be. I heartily endorse this seller for others to trust.

Good reading on a basic subject
This is not a book for millionaires, but on how your lifestyle shape your wealth. If you live within your means, and in a basic lifestyle of make, save and invest, you will never have any fiancial problems in your life. Very simple. Good reading and examples.

The guy without a life next door
I love this book. It illustrates in detail what future millionaires do differently in life. Unintentionally it also illustrates that you could miss your entire life while piling up millions. Remember: Your last jacket does not have any pockets. Convinced me that I definitely do not want to be a millionaire.

this book was life changing for me. After growing up with a family that never knew how to save money. I wanted to educate myself on how to have control of my financial future. This book taught me so many wonderful principles. It also taught me that your neighbor that looks like they are wealthy may be up to their eyeballs in debt. Very important book in my life.
