Learn J. Paul Getty’s secrets on making money and getting rich in this “excellent How To book from a $$$ and sense man” (Kirkus Reviews).

There are plenty of books on making money by men who haven't made much. But if J. Paul Getty, who Fortune magazine called “the richest man in the world,” doesn't know how, who does? Here the billionaire businessman discloses the secrets of his success—and provides a blueprint for those who want to follow in his footsteps. And he goes beyond the matter of making money to the question of what to do with it.
“Getty says it: ‘You can be rich.’”—New York Herald Tribune
“Aimed at the rising young business executive.”—Albany Times-Union

In 1961, I read this book for the first time in German language and it helped me a lot in my career as a salesman in the Chemical Industry. When I visited the Getty Museum and especially the Getty Villa in Malibu this year (2009) it reminded me on my first endeavor nearly 50 years ago. Therefore, I ordered it this time in English, and I was really amazed how these so called 'old principles' are still working today. I like to recommend this great book. Getty goes beyond the matter of making money and explains how to invest it wisely (in his case in the oil industry and art).
