Kirja-arvosteluja

This book has the same issues as The Millionaire Next Door: although it contains interesting findings, all chapters are based on the same research data (surveys, statistical data from IRS, interviews). After a few chapters, you have seen it all before.
I like the focus on self-made women, mindset, entrepreneurship, and various alternative life paths that the author discusses; ranging from starting your own business, saving your normal income and investing wisely, running the family office instead of working a job to investing in real-estate to let.

This book is about money, population surveys, statistics and lifestyle inflation. A great read to adjust your view of the differences between wealth vs income.
Unfortunately, the book is also extraordinarily boring. The first two or three chapters were great because you read the author's findings for the first time. However, these are repeated endlessly throughout the book.
I finished this in one day, while skipping the chapters about buying automobiles, giving cash and trust funds to your spoiled children, and the perils of distributing your estate among heirs.
In the final chapter, you can clearly see this book started out as market research for business that serve the affluent, as it discusses "business opportunities for the coming 10 years" (starting in 1996).

A book based on data, no concepts. A simple, well-written gem that's full of insight.

It's a good read but not the kind of book that really tells you to do these 3-5 things to give you the best chance to become wealthy. It more drives home the point that a lot of family's the average person sees and views as wealthy really are not and the ones you may not think are can choose to stop working whenever they would like. Basically live beneath your means. The book also had a lot to say about the dangers of the wealthy not instilling good money management skills in there own children.
