Publisher's Summary

The "Wealth Matters" columnist of The New York Times reveals the habits, worldviews, and practices that lead to true wealth - and why it's more important to be "wealthy" than "rich".
For the better part of the past decade, Paul Sullivan has written about and lived among some of the wealthiest people in America. He has learned how they save, spend, and invest their money; how they work and rest; and how they use their wealth to give their children educational advantages but not strip them of motivation. He has also seen how they make horrendous mistakes. Firsthand, Sullivan knows why some people, even "rich" people, never find true wealth and why other people, even those who have far less, are much wealthier.
Sullivan is part of the "The One Percent" today, but he came from far humbler roots, starting life in the bottom 25 percent. This personal audiobook shows how others can make better financial decisions - and come to terms with what money means to them. It lays out how they can avoid the pitfalls around saving, spending, and giving their money away and think differently about wealth to lead more secure and less stressful lives. An essential complement to all of the financial advice available, this unique guide is a welcome antidote to the idea that wealth is a number on a bank statement.

Must listen

This is a great way to learn how to think about money. It opened my mind to learn that there is an inherent difference between being rich and being wealthy.
