Millionaire Women Next Door: The Many Journeys of Successful American Businesswomenby Thomas J. Stanley, Thomas, Stanley
Dr. Thomas J. Stanley first swept aside the mythical magic curtain of wealth with The Millionaire Next Door,/i>
"Most Americans are not free. They are chained to their paychecks............The women profiled herein will not tolerate such an existence. They are a different breed. They are free. They are cultivators of wealth and satisfied with life."
Dr. Thomas J. Stanley first swept aside the mythical magic curtain of wealth with The Millionaire Next Door, revealing just who and how common the truly wealthy were in this country as well as the characteristics and habits that made them so. With Millionaire Women Next Door, he now focuses on one of the least understood but increasingly rich demographics.
"Why write another book that profiles millionaires?" Stanley asks. "The vast majority of the millionaire respondents (92 percent) in The Millionaire Next Door were men............ I felt that it was indeed time for successful businesswomen of the self-made variety to be heard." And heard they are in this book that is every bit as informative and inspirational as the author's earlier works. Stanley's thoroughly researched findings and conclusions will fascinate readers everywhere. They'll definitely come away more knowledgeable and greatly inspired by women who have found the key to riches.

An excellent and very inspirational book applauding the accomplishments of women from varied backgrounds and occupations. Women are strong, smart, and hard-workers. It's about time a spotlight was shone upon their successes. I highly recommend this book. Men pass it on to your wife. Friends share it as a gift to others. Also recommended is Dear Co-workers The Blessings Just Keep On Pouring In.
This is a great book - it's a must read, even for men. This book demonstrates how much financial independence is badly needed no matter who we are. We live in such a society where consumption is over emphasized and limited desire to protect what we have. We as a society tend not to appreciate what we have. This book will sure help us act logically and smart with our resources. Enjoy the book and good luck.
