From the Publisher
"Well-founded advice based on hard-won experience."
"Nothing if not entertaining, even inspiring."
"An unexpected gem."
-Forbes "Engaging and blunt."
"Entertaining and practical advice."
"If Machiavelli sat down at his iMac to confect The Billionaire Prince, it might sound remarkably like Felix Dennis's How to Get Rich."
-The Wall Street Journal
This is not your usual get-rich-quick manual. Though Dennis, a poet (When Jack Sued Jill: Nursery Rhymes for Modern Times) and the founder of a publishing empire (including Maxim magazine), wants to help the reader rank at least among the "lesser rich" (equal to a net worth of $30 million-$80 million by his definition), he isn't himself motivated by money. With his own fortune estimated at between $400 million and $900 million, he doesn't have to be. Instead, Dennis wants to demystify the money-getting process, and his straight-talking, honest advice makes a refreshing change in this oversaturated field. Using humorous examples from his own business life, Dennis's advice, from "The Five Most Common Start-Up Errors" to "The Power of Focus," might sound like conventional fare, but delivered in his signature bawdy, British style, it's altogether more entertaining-and more practical. Dennis highlights the right strategies and mindset to get readers their millions, but he won't air-brush his story or soften the bitter truth along the way. As he says, when it comes to acquiring wealth, "being a bit of a shit helps." (June)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
