Review:

"Pay close enough attention to the wisdom in Ryan D'Agostino's fun, fast-paced book and the door he knocks on next time around may be yours."-Jean Chatzky, Today Show financial editor and author of Make Money, Not Excuses

"First came A Random Walk Down Wall Street, in which an Ivy League economist explained how the stock market works. Then came The Millionaire Next Door, which drew on in-depth research to explain how regular people accumulate wealth. Now comes Rich Like Them, in which Ryan D'Agostino takes a random walk among the millionaires that inhabit America's wealthiest neighborhoods. These ultra-achievers are surprisingly generous with their stories, their advice, and the secrets of their success. A hard book to put down-filled with ideas that you can put to work."--William C. Taylor, founding editor of Fast Company and coauthor of Mavericks at Work

"There are many wonderful and surprising things about Ryan D'Agostino's book. The first is that he didn't get socked in the face for knocking on strangers' doors and asking them about their private finances. The second is just how much wisdom-about both money and life in general-these people gave him. This is an inspiring read."-A. J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically and The Know-It-All

"Rich Like Them not only proves wealth is within the grasp of us all, it also provides a blueprint for how you can make it a reality. It's a fun and potentially profitable read."-Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., author of Nice Girls Don't Get Rich and Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office
