Review

"Now Millionaire co–author Thomas Stanley is back with a dose of financial tough love for high–spending wannabes in Stop Acting Rich and Start Living Like a Real Millionaire." ( Better Investing Magazine, January 3, 2010)

"This is all fascinating stuff and Stanley presents it in a very readable style. Stanley has written two other best–sellers on millionaires. It seems he′s done it again." (The Star–Ledger, January 3, 2010)

" not only is this a book that everyone should buy, it′s a book that every parent who loves his or her kids should buy for them and bribe them to read it." (WalletPop, October 7, 2009)

"Contains some surprising data that makes for a convincing argument supporting a simple lifestyle as a path to security." (Associated Press)

"After reading through Stanley s engaging anecdotes about how the other America actually lives, you may come to feel that perhaps you don t need to impress the other guy so much. This in itself is no small thing. Your wallet will thank you. And you may end up happier." (Smartmoney.com)

"Thomas Stanley has written a fascinating book that is based on years of research into how the truly wealthy live. Stanley s main contention is that those with millions aren t among the nation s hyper consumers. Rather it s the "aspirationals," those seeking recognition as members of the moneyed set, who are loose with a buck. It s a hypothesis offered often, but the difference is Stanley s research. He has packed his book with oodles of statistics and not just the usual numbers. For example, 75 percent of millionaires pay $19.79 or less for a bottle of wine. When it comes to a dinner, 75 percent pay $24.53 or less and 95 percent keep the tab to less than $40. This is all fascinating stuff and Stanley presents it in a very readable style. Stanley has written two other best–sellers on millionaires. It seems he s done it again." (The Star–Ledger)

"If you ve read the 1996 best–seller The Millionaire Next Door, you already know it s hard to identify the truly affluent based on appearance. . . Now Millionaire co–author. . .Stanely is back with a dose of financial tough love for high–spending wannabes. . . offers surprising insight. If your goal is long–lasting wealth and not just the appearance of affluence, start reading ASAP." (BetterInvesting magazine)

Stanley is right in advising people to have a re–look at their spendthrift ways and to avoid getting trapped by symbolism. If you spend in anticipation of becoming rich, you are unlikely to become truly wealthy, he quips. (Personal Finance Magazine Moneylife)

"Stanley′s research does a great job of proving there′s a big difference between income and net worth. Many pretenders have become very good at generating income and enjoying a high standard of living. But take this Stanley gem to the bank: Those who are among the least productive in transforming their incomes into wealth are in the higher–status occupations. Don′t be a great pretender, pretending you′re doing well when you only look the part. Read this book and find out how to emulate real–deal millionaires." (The Washington Post, Michelle Singletary)



good read every bit as good as if not better than his previous books. Highly recommended. (Fool.co.uk, April 2010). --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

From the Inside Flap

With the financial crisis, high unemployment, and tight credit, you may be saying to yourself: who is acting rich these days? We′re barely making ends meet.

You would think that our wastrel ways are over, we′re erasing debt, and stocking up on savings. The reality is that not only are we spenders who barely understand the concept of frugality, we are big spenders on expensive elite brands, and we do it in an attempt to emulate the rich people we see on television, in magazines, and down the street. The recession may have caused us to take a breather, but every indication is that we will pick up right where we left off when gentler economic winds blow again.

Before you spend another dime, read this book and understand how to become rich instead of act rich. Stop Acting Rich . . . And Start Living Like a Real Millionaire will upend every assumption you have about wealthy people: where they shop, what they buy, and most shockingly, where they live (it′s not where you think).

Did you know that three times more millionaires live in homes valued at under $300,000 than over $1 million? Would it stun you to learn that more millionaires drive Toyotas than BMWs? How about a second home? Not for the millionaire.

Bestselling author of The Millionaire Next Door and The Millionaire Mind and leading authority on the wealthy, Dr. Thomas Stanley uncovers the truth about spending to show you how you can really live rich.

It all starts with where you live. Live in a prestige neigh?borhood and you will spend more on everything from your car to your watch. Real millionaires understand that living in communities where their neighbors have less net worth than they do naturally leads to spending less. It′s easier to be rich when keeping up with the Joneses hardly costs anything.

Dr. Stanley′s research also uncovers what makes rich people happy. Life satisfaction comes not from cruising down the highway in a chunk of your net worth, but from having the financial resources to choose to spend time with family and friends, to volunteer, to pursue interests.

Stop Acting Rich . . . And Start Living Like a Real Millionaire rips the lid off just about every assumption we have about what rich looks like. Few people become rich by way of a high income, and even fewer high–income people are truly rich. The good news is that almost anyone can become wealthy even without a super high income if you would just stop acting . . . and instead start living like a rich person.
