Most of America's wealthy people are nothing but big spenders, who reside on sprawling estates and throw their money around without a care in the world, right? Wrong! Now for the first time in a mass market edition, the revolutionary #1 national bestseller The Millionaire Next Door debunks the myths behind our nation's rich, and forever changes the perception of how they accumulate their wealth. Following two decades worth of surveys, interviews, and exclusive data on America's affluent, authors Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko have concluded that hard work, diligent savings, and living below one's means goes much further in determining personal riches than an inheritance, an advanced degree, or even intelligence. Don't miss out on this remarkable blueprint to wealth that readers can't get enough of -- order today!

Review:

The implication of The Millionaire Next Door...is that nearly anybody with a steady job can amass a tidy fortune. 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
