    Disappointing

    I've enjoyed Mr. Stanley's articles on prudent living and the (sometimes surprising) lifestyle habits of millionaires, so I was extremely disappointed when I read beyond the first few chapters of this book. Although there are some worthwhile 'common sense' points, save a few hours of your life and read the summaries in the author's more popular published articles. (If you have any doubt where these have been published, randomly open to nearly any page in this book. The author does a lot of name-dropping from his bibliography.) The author is at his best when required to meet 1500 word limits. Then why the sub-par editing in this book? Perhaps his editor was reminded by 'Dr. Stanley' that he is a 'Best-Selling Author' and his infinite wisdom shouldn't be whittled down. And, dear readers, lest you forget that Stanley (excuse me--Doctor Stanley) is a credible author and PhD, we are reminded of his 'status' every few pages. Perhaps this could be a new drinking game for the ivy-league set--read the book aloud and take a drink each time he refers to himself as a 'Best-Selling author...' This book takes on a very condecending tone and is downright sexist and racist in some areas. Spend a day caddying at the local country club if you really want some priceless information on the 'millionaire mind.'

    Back to the bookshelf with this one

    I'll keep it in my collection just because I got the hardcover at a deep discount, but this book is monotonous beyond the average Ph.D. dissertation. Perhaps Stanley is paid by the word, but one would hope a publisher would see through an attempt to get thrice (or more!) paid for the same material. The Millionaire Next Door was an excellent piece, with excellent writing. This book is an insomnia killer.

    I wish I could throw it to the garbage, but a bad book is still a book

    If you haven't read the millionaire next door, read that one instead. If you have, you will be very dissapointed with this one. It's about the same, in a book with less information and more pages. I think 3 pages would had been enough to tell the story told. Very very boring. I gave it a 1 because I cannot give a 0.
