    I listened to the abridged 2 hour version. It's to the point with thought provoking insights and reminders (or re-assertors) points of view and behaviours that you know yourself are good for achieving a good balance sheet. Being only 2 hours long it is succinct enough not to drag on and make you switch off. Will listen to it again in time, gladly.

    There is truly about 4 CD's worth of valuable and interesting information. Unfortunately, the book fills 12 CD's. How you could listen to this entire book and not find it repetitive is beyond me. I forced myself to listen to the entire thing, partially because I have a very long commute and my next selection was not here yet, but also to see if it brought any new insights. It did not. Houses in established neighborhoods, supportive spouse, no high SAT scores, tenacious, see I did that without notes because I have it memorized from listening to it once. Maybe that's why he did it??

    I thought this was a great book. Filled with details, statistics, stories, and encouragement. It shows a lot of research and devotion to the people who have amassed a million dollar net worth or higher. A definite read for anyone interested in what Millionaires think and do.

    Reviewers who didn't read the whole book are the ones with the narrow mind. As you read many of the negative reviews one can only think that these individuals by far had no real mind set for such a book. This is not a get rich and this is how to do it book. This is the real life story of "The Grasshopper and Ant" we learned as children. This book identifies the main qualities REAL millionaires have and tells many short stories about their successes and failures. It is not how much you make a year that defines a millionaire; it is ones net worth that defines such a title. This is an excellent book!!

  • Muriel Rand

    I can't believe this book was published. The author presents characteristics of millionaires and it is SO repetitive I sent it back after a couple of disks - the same points, over and over again. How many times does he need to tell us that SAT scores are not correlated with being a millionaire? I bet he said that 50 times in two disks. Enough already. There's nothing here that is not obvious - "you need tenacity and courage to be a millionaire". There- I've told you the whole book so you don't need to waste your time! One star is too much.

    I thought this was an easy listen and interesting. It is not a how to book but would help clarify what is not important in building wealth. I had my 15 year old son listen to the profile of a millionaire from the book and I think he was very surprised. I hope it will help him realize how easy it could be to be a millionaire and how he probably wouldn't realize how many he might encounter and not even know it.

    I found this to be way too repetitive. I couldn't get past the second CD before I decided to send it back. Pretty obvious information, but if you don't know I guess it could be helpful.

    Although some of the reviews indicated the information in the tape was common knowledge, it provided several different ideas that can easily be incorporated. It really gives you some things to think about when you are making financial decisions and looking back at previous decisions you have made.

  • Dave Paulson

    I found myself mostly thinking "yeah, so." There are some points worth the listen, but overall, unless the reader is terribly naive or narrow minded, you won't find anything new here. The book is short and easy to listen to but don't expect any revelations.

  • Robert Bacarella

    I found this book to be very insightful as to what the real millionaire's are like in America. Hollywood has it all wrong. Some might say that it was too long but I found if to be a breeze to listen to and the CD's flowed very well. This is not a "how to" book or a get-rich-quick CD. I just wanted facts and that is what this book presented. I would recommend to my friends and I would also listen to it again.
