Review The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Rich
by THOMAS J. STANLEY and WILLIAM D. DANKO
The book, “The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Rich” discloses to its readers the numerous personalities who are not only Millionaires but are rich because they know the secrets to financial success.
But the book doesn’t stop there, the author, Thomas J. Stanley, aims at giving the readers the skinny on how these individuals were able to get to where they are. Suffice it to say, and the book is an instruction manual on how even a layman can become Millionaires. The author effectively discusses the seven (7) common traits that these Millionaires have, thus making the readers privy to what internal features they need to assume to emulate for great effectiveness.
Readers agree that the book is highly accessible in that the content is delivered in an easily digestible content. It does away with highfalutin language but does well by not trivializing the technicalities of the discipline.
