I expected this as a forward-looking bunch of tips on how we might optimize our human skills, intelligence and networks to be successful at wealth-building, in today's tech age. This turns out to be more a disciplined anthropological study of who is successful now, particularly, from one generation to the next. I don't want to over-simplify, but the upshot for me in terms of advice was, "be born in a rich and illustrious family that parents very well, in a great neighborhood." This obviously results in superior wealth creation and retention. Oh, really? And here are research numbers that prove this crushingly obvious thesis. It is a job well done, and not one I care to see reiterated dozens of quantitative ways.
This is one of the most interesting and well written books regarding the conditions and complexities in our modern society.
