The Millionaire Next Door

I kept hearing really good things about The Millionaire Next Door, so I decided to check it out in Amazon. There were excerpts of the book available, and I was pretty surprised at some of the information in there. It mentioned that millionaires live in homes that are worth $320,000 on average. I would have never thought this! The book also mentioned that they live below their means and wear "....inexpensive suits...." I must have a vivid imagination, I always thought millionaires drove luxury cars and wore really expensive clothing. I blame the TV for this perception!

I will update after I read the book...

Have you read this book? What are your thoughts?


  1. I checked the book from the library, and I really liked it.

  2. I will definitely get the book, thanks!

  3. my all-time favorite financial book without a doubt! seriously, this book gets your mind "right" like no other...so read it and let us know what you think :)

  4. Yes, I read the book a long time ago. I was not surprised by much in it because my mother drove a Ford Escort and lived in a house not kept as well as the others on the street and allowed students to rent a room or two in the house and... you can guess the rest!

  5. An awesome book. He also wrote, "The Millionaire Mind" and "Millionaire Women Next Door".

    Enjoy the book!
