The most interesting part of this book was to hear the voices of people who make millions every year who also somehow consider themselves to be middle class (or maybe upper middle). But by no means do they consider themselves rich. What an interesting look behind the curtain at the financial worries of the top 1% and fraction thereof.
The fact that really blew me away was that only 2% of Americans actually consider themselves to be wealthy. As crazy as that sounds, the interviews in the book document the phenomenon over and over of rich people feeling like they are barely squeaking by. No wonder they are so violently opposed to any increase in their taxes. Even after the author tries to reason with them about what real poverty and middle class looks like, almost every rich person in the study still clings to the notion that somehow they are just middle class folks. This is a fascinating book that provides a new insight into the mind of the upper 1%. Who knew they were just middle class folks after all...
