Publisher's Summary

"Making money is a knack, a knack that can be acquired. And if someone like me can become rich, then so can you - no matter what your present circumstances. Here is how I did it and what I learned along the way." So writes Felix Dennis, who believes that almost anyone of reasonable intelligence can become rich, given sufficient motivation and application. How To Get Rich is a distillation of his business wisdom. Primarily concerned with the step-by-step creation of wealth, it ruthlessly dissects the business failures and financial triumphs of "a South London lad who became rich virtually by accident".
Part manual, part memoir, part primer, this book is a template for those who are willing to stare down failure and transform their lives. Canny, infuriating, cynical, and generous by turns, How to Get Rich is an invaluable guide to "the surprisingly simple art of collecting money which already has your name on it".

The anti-manual on how to get rich.

This book has ruined me for other 'how to get rich' books.

I own my own business and I would like to think that I'm on my way to becoming one of the 'comfortable poor' - a term the author uses to describe affluent people who are not super rich. I like to read the odd self help book on how to achieve wealth and stumbled upon this one.

The author, Felix Dennis, is a self made multi-milionnaire and by his own admission this book sets about telling the listener how difficult it is to become rich. It tells you in graphic detail how you will lose friends, how people will try to discourage you, how you may fail and lose everything, how you may be publicly humiliated and how your health and sanity can, and most likely will, suffer. But then it gives very sober and practical advice on how to combat these negative issues and how to come out at the other end alive and rich... or not.

So why did this book ruin me for other get rich books? The author spent quite a few minutes ranting on about the authors of other get rich self-help books and how most of them are only rich because they write self-help books on how to get rich. Think about this comment for a bit... Felix Dennis is filthy rich. He made all those riches himself. Then he wrote a book telling us how to do it as well. This is the book.

A personal insight into the pursuit of wealth

This is a personal opinion on how the author, publishing mogul Felix Dennis made his money (approx £750m at the time of his death in 2014).

There are some interesting anecdotes and in truth some sound advice about certain topics but like many of these books. The author focusses on the overall creation of wealth and for many people, getting from £20m to £100m of wealth is not as interesting as making that first few million.

Generally this is a good listen (although the musical interludes between chapters is a little odd) but don't expect too much from this more than a story of how the author did it and at times you may be left feeling a little patronised. It is worth a listen though and I will at some point probably give it a second listen to pick up on the gems hidden amongst the prose!

One of those re-read's, its too good not to

By far the most realistic book in this category that I've ever read. If your looking for a feel good book with no real substance this is not the book for you but read it anyway.
Also the narrator did an excellent job, fits perfectly
