I really enjoyed The Millionaire Next Door...but I was looking for some ideas on how to apply those principles in my (not always so frugal) life and habits. I thought this book was geared toward that end but instead, it consisted of entire chapters outlining what brands of shoe and types of vodka the rich and pseudo-rich purchase. Who cares? If you get that many millionaires don't drive, dress or drink like our culture thinks they do, then you don't need this book.

I really enjoyed Dr. Stanley's first book, "The Millionaire Next Door," but I found this one disappointing. He hits the same topics as the other books, "don't live in a rich neighborhood," "millionaires don't drive expensive cars," "don't buy expensive vodka," "continue to live frugally even once they have money," etc. He goes over these topics over and over again, with each chapter just telling the same point in a little different way. It became so repetetive I stopped listening. I think the authors insights are excellent, but I think the material is simply not broad enough for three different books.

Lots of statistics and facts....... Great for my inner nerd. Recommended to someone who wants to really analyse the motive behind their spending on certain products
Would you try another book written by Thomas J. Stanley or narrated by Fred Stella?
Only an Abridged version
What could Thomas J. Stanley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Make it shorter
Any additional comments?
The book makes excellent points. All the points are excellent but they are laboured.<br/>
