The problems with this book begin before it is even opened, with the title: the sub-heading "the distilled wisdom of one of Britain's wealthiest self-made entrepreneurs" makes no sense. I have never before heard the phrase "self-made entrepreneur" which can only mean "self-made person who runs their own business", an essentially repetitive and yet meaningless expression.

The sub-heading should just be removed and the book simply called "How I Got Rich"; and not how "to" get rich. That is because this is the true subject of the book: it is by and about Felix Dennis who tries to turn his personal journey into a guidebook. But if you are the sort of person who thinks that it matters a little bit what sorts of products to sell and business practices to follow while pursuing riches, then this book will not be your guide.

Dennis gleefully promotes the distasteful and boring mythology that to succeed in business one must necessarily be an immoral, deceitful, egotist. While I agree that most people who achieve super-wealth fit that description aptly, I do not feel it is a prerequisite nor is it admirable to goad others into the types of sleazy money-grubbing practices that made Dennis rich and which he seems to find hilarious to recount.

One story from his early career that really stood out for me was the one regarding his decision to print cheap and crappy (his words) versions of a top selling poster (of Frank Zappa) when the regular printer was unable to keep up with demand.

This is a great read, even if a little discouraging. I much prefer those books which teach you the magic incantations, which lead you to wake up one morning, to find large boxes of cash neatly stacked in the hall. This is different. Dennis (the Saxondale of self-made men), tells the ugly truth about what it really takes to get seriously rich and does it in a very pleasing style, which seems to ooze wisdom, honesty and passionate personal opinion. Quite easily the best book I have read of its type.

I would recommend this book to anyone, even if it just serves as a reminder, of why you don't really want to be rich afterall.

This book is a little bit like a visit to a psychologist. A psychologist won't change your life. You will have to do it yourself but he will give you tips and ideas and provide you with reassurance and encouragement. Dennis too gives you tips (on how to get on track to get your hands on that elusive million) but of course it's up to you, the reader, to execute your own ideas. So this book will be perfect for whoever has already been toying with the idea of starting a business venture as it will give them the final push to actually do it. The core message of the book is: Believe in yourself and get started, stay focussed while executing your idea, surround yourself with talent and stay in control of your own company until it's time to harvest the fruits of your labour. This message makes sense and I am almost certain, that every successful self-made business man is likely to agree with Dennis on this. My gripe with this book is that its message has been panned out to 328 pages. What could have been a very interesting longish article in Esquire perhaps makes, in my opinion, a very tiresome read. It's repetitive in places and there is loads and loads of waffle to s----t----r----e-----t-----c----h the content as much as possible. But worse of all I found the author's distracting and in my opinion not even good poems which are scattered throughout the book (obviously another attempt to bump up the content even more). Here is an example:

Wishes are fishes(sic!) that swim in the nets
Of castaways' souls by the shores of the dead,
Where coins are as rare as a ferryman's debts,
And nobody cares what you did, or you said.

Well what can I say, first business book I've ever read that I can genuinely say was a real page turner!
Several things I love about it, firstly its written by an actual self made man 'been there done it' without the you've read my book now buy my other stuff, CD's Seminars etc.
Then just the sheer frankness in the pages, no flowery or dry theory stuff (apart from the poetry which is relevant btw), no promises of magic wands or the cavalry coming over the hill to save you, it even says its anti self improvement which makes you look at your self and your capabilities questioning whether you really want the riches and what virtues you'll need to give yourself that chance to attain them.
Some of the messages I picked up are ridiculously profound in that its makes you question what you've learned so far and what you've yet to learn or even unlearn
Cheesy Americanised title aside I really wish I could give more than 5 stars, to date it's the best business/wealth creating book I have ever read.
