Forbes The kind of information that could lift the economic prospects of individuals more than any government policy...The Millionaire Next Door has a theme that I think rings very true..."Hey, I can do it. You can do it too!" -- Rush Limbaugh [A] Remarkable book. The Washington Post A nerve has been hit...[For] people who want to become wealthy. USA Today A primer for amassing wealth through frugality. The Boston Globe An interesting sociological work. Business Week A fascinating examination of the affluent in American society. The Dispatch (Lexington, NC), (Nc) Dispatch These, for the wise, are tips for all of us...A very readable book. Cox News Service Debunks the image of the rich as high-living spendthrifts. U.S. News and World Report I love the book, The Millionaire Next Door. It talks about how it is a myth that most millionaires in America have inherited their money. The fact is, we have created such a great country over 250 years. We have actually found the way for poor people to go from nothing to huge wealth and to create a life-changing opportunity for their children and grandchildren. We celebrate it, write movies about it, and our libraries are full of books about it. There is nothing wrong with that. --Bernie Sanders Chicago Tribune

TMND is not a book about getting rich quickly, and it certainly isn't another book that is based on thinking yourself rich which I can't stand because if we could all think ourselves rich we would be. Do you seriously think that every starving child in third world countries doesn't! If you want the truth about how you can make a better life for yourself then this is for you.
This book is based on the research of many millionaires, OK its not all of them but the ones who opted into the research program. Although this doesn't give a complete analysis of every millionaire what it does give you is a thorough look at the lives and stories of people who may have come from humble beginnings or even inherited their wealth.
Why is this good info? Because the vast majority of us don't have a clue about what it takes to get into that position or what it means to maintain it! After reading this book all the things I thought about rich peoples spending habits changed, it made me start to think about my life and what I could do to improve it without even directly asking me to do it.
The word frugal is not something that most people consider to be a good word especially in times when consumerism is rife, but if you want a good life then it may be something we should all think about, the millionaires in this book were mostly just that FRUGAL or tight fisted :0. on balance it may seem like a sacrifice but if at the end of your life you don't have to worry about your pension, kids or family because they are all taken care of then in my opinion its worth a try!
