    Wish he wrote this when I was 17

    A truly necessary book that bursts the bubble of expecting formal education to be the end all be all to success. It's not. And he makes a great supporting argument. He tells it like it is and keeps it real. Great read for a different perspective.

    I've devoured the Education of Millionaires a couple of times, and glean something more from it each time. Let's cut to the chase: the Education of Millionaires provides a very useful framework for equipping yourself to succeed on your own terms.

    For those with very different expectations, or such a deep need to justify not taking action, you just aren't going to be happy with this book.

    However, if you've ever had an inkling that there was more out there than you learned in school, were overwhelmed by the enormous amount of content available online, and wished someone would equip you with a way to navigate it to achieve your goals, this book is it.

    How could you not be delighted with a book that not only gives you an actionable system, but myriad examples of how the exact steps have been used by others to great effect? Seems to me Michael Ellsberg does everything short of holding your hand while you do the work of making your life succeed.

    If you're looking for a way to move forward with your goals, I highly recommend Michael Ellsberg's the Education of Millionaires, and then taking action on what you learn. Best wishes for your great success!

    Considering Higher Education??? READ THIS BOOK

    I am a huge proponent of education and attaining knowledge, but have consistently left school before achieving that special piece of paper called a Bachelor's Degree. This book gives tons of street cred to people who have excelled in business without having this particular piece of paper. It is great for ANYONE who thinks they'll be involved in the business world at any time in their life. (So, everyone who needs to make money for a living.)

    Before you invest thousands, tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands of dollars in college or grad school, read this book!! Approach your education with a strategy and a purposeful outcome. Do not get trapped paying for something that can't possibly achieve an appropriate ROI. Be Prepared!! Higher Education is a PURCHASE in a free enterprise system: BUYER BEWARE!!!

    A must read for students, entrepreneurs, and corporate ladder climbers alike!

    The insights in this book are invaluable and make an immediate impact on the reader. I only wish someone had written this book 10 years ago. Excellent piece of work!

    Definitely worth the read!

    The how to get there is what's most evident in this book. Teach them how to fish is the best way to describe the approach of the author. All the people he mentions have tons of information and worth way more than 8 years of college.
