Book Review – The Millionaire Next Door
Before I became good with money, trust me I was hopeless with money. While my wage was not great, it was better than most people’s; my problem was with spending. I spent money on shopping, food, going out, holidays, clothes, and paying back debt, with little attention to saving anything. My life was great and there was always a good time to be had. Then one day it all caught up with me, when my debt payments nearly overtook my wage. Like a strike of lightning, I realised I could not keep this up. At around the same point, quite by accident, I came across this book “The Millionaire Next Door.”
This book teaches you the not so secret tips of getting high. In fact, most millionaires are not sport’s players, proportion traders, or movie stars. They give real life statistics about real millionaires living in the suburbs. People who you would not speculate were a millionaire due to the fact they don’t live like the ones we see on TV. They give real life stories of people who are millionaires who have lived on a basic wage all their life. Plus they give you a rundown of the USA top millionaires’ professions (would you believe plumbing is included?)
This book trains you to stop living and acting above your wage. Stop living flamboyantly with money, spending all your income. To say this book is an eye opener is an understatement. I’m sure like me, when you read it and slowly and painfully think, wow what foolish decisions I have made. This book will truly, 100 percent guarantee to make you feel differently about money.
The great thing about this book is they use FACTS to show what millionaires are really like. They don’t use guesswork. As the back of the book asks,” Who are high?” How did they get high? What do they excursion? All three answers to these questions will shock you. No surprise this book could change your life. And it has sold over one million copies.
Just to give you an idea of the typical American millionaire, the book proudly states at one point, “excursion like a millionaire… in a 1993 Ford Taurus.”
The books only talks about FACTS not hypotheticals.
Does not sugar coat why you are not high.

Follow the steps to increase your bank balance, no matter what position you are in.
Introduces you to the average American millionaire, as determined by studies and surveys.
This book should be taught in schools but is not.
Five out of five stars.
