The New York Times bestseller that gives "readers with an entrepreneurial turn of mind . . . road maps on how millionaires found their niches" (USA Today).
The author of the blockbuster bestseller The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America's Wealthy shows how self-made millionaires have surmounted shortcomings such as average intelligence by carefully choosing their careers, taking calculated risks, and living balanced lifestyles while maintaining their integrity. Dr. Thomas J. Stanley also builds on his research from The Millionaire Next Door and takes us further into the psyche of the American millionaire.
Stanley focuses in on the top one percent of households in America and tells us the motor behind the engine; what makes them tick. His findings on how these families reached such financial success are based on in-depth surveys and interviews with more than thirteen hundred millionaires.
