    A Strange Talent

    The author somehow was able to expand on information that could have been explained in fifty pages to over four hundred pages. He's mastered the talent of constantly repeating the same ideas in a slightly different way. You can be sure that I will never forget that the average millionaire was not a college genius and had a GPA of only 2.9. I suggest waiting for the abridged version.

    Good for a skim

    This book could easily be shortened to less than 75 pages and still give the reader all the information worth reading. I was very disappointed with this book after reading the excellent 'The Millionaire Next Door'

    let me take your millions, fools.

    this book will take your money and you will not have to worry whether dr. stanley has a millionare mind but a mind like wc fields . where one is born every day. the book is repetitive even for business books. too much time on individuals.

    What was the point of this book again?

    I purchased this book in hopes of getting something like what the title seems to describe, some more useful insights into the mindset and actions and kinds of behavior that lead to wealth, as described in Doctors Stanley and Danko's earlier work, 'The Millionaire Next Door', but my hopes went largely unsatisfied. 'The Millionaire Mind' reads like a rehash of 'The Millionaire Next Door', but with less useful organization, only a bare handful of new or expanded information from additional surveys of millionaire backgrounds (apparently the typical millionaire didn't ace his way through college - who knew?) and even employs some of the same anecdotes, though told this time around with a more self-congratulatory tone. The book is thicker, but that's not an indication of more useful content. Dr. Stanley has skipped the baggage of a co-author this time. Unfortunately, from the looks of this book, it may have been Dr. Danko's contribution that made the first 'Millionaire' better reading. Don't get me wrong, this book is not actively bad - it's just that there's a better book available. If you haven't read Stanley's and Danko's book, it is the place to start, and if you really need something to occupy your bookcase, you can follow it up with this, but you'll be a millionaire that much sooner if you save your money.

    Got out of the starting Gate, then gasped for air...

    The cover grabbed me, as I had read The MIllionaire Next Door and recommended it to 100's of people. I understand the author changed publishers, and I know he dropped his co-author, and I expect these are 2 significant reasons that this book falls short of the excellence that the first book achieved. It's okay to skim, but surely there are better reads out there. It was tough to get through, overkill on simple issues and monotonous re-hashing of info. Would have made a great magazine article, but it's bit long in hardcover.

    Autobiography or bragging?

    This reads like an autobiography of Rick Rockwell (of Who Wants to Marry [and divorce a Millionare]. Nothing new in the way of specifics, a lot of general discussion, anecdotes, and generalization. Want to motivate yourself, change your behavior, then do what I did when I decided to start my own business, try Neurosync behavior modification software, works while you use your computer. I can't say that I can recommend this book.
