Like most people in America, I am curious about the well off. In this book, The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy, the authors have done market study on millionaires. The results are surprising. Many of these people are self-made, and super frugal. They would not be easy to pick out of a crowd with their american made vehicles, their ordinary houses, and off the rack suits.
The book is very informative and gives great advice about what to do to become wealthy. The first point: high income: is obvious, but the second: frugal living is not as expected. The author points out that you can’t always tell these millionaires from their middle class surroundings and lifestyles.
Some parts of this book are a little dry, but the data itself is interesting.
