Millionaire Women Next Door: The Many Journeys of Successful American Businesswomenby Thomas J. Stanley
"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. They are in control of their own destiny."Eight years ago, Dr. Thomas J. Stanley swept aside the mythical magic curtain of wealth to reveal The Millionaire Next Door. America found out just who and how common the truly wealthy were in this country-and we learned the characteristics and habits that made them so. Now the author of the follow-up The Millionaire Mind focuses on one of the least understood but increasingly rich demographics: Millionaire Women Next Door, available in paperback for the first time.
"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." Readers everywhere will be fascinated by Stanley's thoroughly researched findings and conclusions. They'll come away considerably more knowledgeable and greatly inspired by women who have found the key to riches.
Millionaire Women Next Door explores the meaning of wealth and the avenues that female entrepreneurs and businesspeople have traveled. The book examines their choices, natures, working styles, and lifestyles.

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.
