Overview

With the current financial crisis, high unemployment, and tight credit, you may be saying to yourself: “Who is acting rich these days? We’re barely making ends meet.” The reality is the recession may have caused us to take a breather, but every indication is that we will pick up right where we left off when gentler economic winds blow again. Before you spend another dime, listen to this audiobook and understand how to become rich instead of act rich.

It all starts with where you live. Live in a prestige neighborhood and you will spend more on everything from your car to your watch. Real millionaires understand that living in communities where their neighbors have less net worth than they do naturally leads to spending less. It’s easier to be rich when keeping up with the Joneses hardly costs anything. Life satisfaction comes not from cruising down the highway in a chunk of your net worth, but from having the financial resources to choose—to spend time with family and friends, to volunteer, to pursue interests.

Bestselling author of The Millionaire Next Door and The Millionaire Mind and leading authority on the wealthy, Dr. Thomas Stanley uncovers the truth that few people become rich by way of a high income, and even fewer high-income people are truly rich. The good news is that almost anyone can become wealthy—even without a super high income—if you would just stop acting . . . and instead start living like a rich person.

    I Also Recommend:

    A book that I couldnt put down

    First the negative. This book has too many redundant examples to support his theories and these examples are littered haphazardly throughout the book in an unorganized and excessive fashion. He does a great job supporting these theories with solid initial examples which by themselves sufficed to prove his points. He jokes about this redundancy in the book, to his credit.

    Second negative. Based on the redundancy mentioned above, this work could have been shorter, perhaps by 50%. A shorter version would have made the work stronger in my opinion.

    Third negative. If you have read his Millionaire Next Door, Dr Stanley reuses many of the same concepts, and brings little new insight here.

    Positives: The author seems to be harboring a chip on his shoulder about the some of the cohorts he writes about in the book. He writes quite venomously about wine collectors, as if he had one or two in his mind that seemed to get under his skin, and uses this book as a forum to rip into them. Maybe deservedly so. Very entertaining stuff.

    More positives: I like Dr. Stanley. Very entertaining. A few new insights on the wealthy, that he hadnt written about in the Millionaire Next Door, that made the price of the book worth it to me. I have been recommending the this book to everyone, because it has substance, as a read that comes AFTER his Millionaire Next Door.

    So similiar to The Millionaire Next Door, 3 1/2 stars. I would

    So similiar to The Millionaire Next Door, 3 1/2 stars. I would have given this 4 stars, but if you've read his other book, like what other reviewers thought, it rehashed same things but not quite as good. It got to be a little boring with very little new material. What it is good for is a reminder to look towards a more secure financial situation; that can be obtained with various habits, hard work, and discipline, not to mention the courage to go against the crowd. It gives what's worked for people and what have been others' mistakes. It's a good book to start you off thinking about financial independence, what's important in life, and your happiness. I agree with another review that this should be read after The Millionaire Next Door.

    Insightful

    Though I agree that the author rehashes some of his previous material, I found the book interesting and helpful. Before reading this book, I would get "The Millionaire Next Door" and read it first. That plus this book will give you some great insights into why we buy what we buy and how to save for the future. In a time when people want a guick fix to their financial situation, Thomas Stanley helps people understand that quick fixes aren't available, but that a fully thought out plan is the way to go. You will not be wasting your money or time when you get this book.

    Rehasing his previous books

    There is no reason to read this book if you've read Dr. Stanley's other books. If you haven't read them, this is okay, but still not as comprehensive as The Millionaire Next Door.
