    Quando fu pubblicato, questo libro fece un grande scalpore. Mi affrettai a comprarlo ed a leggerlo. Ne rimasi abbastanza deluso. In buona sostanza, gli autori, dopo una lunga ricerca, sono arrivati alla conclusione per cui, una certa parte di americani, sono diventati ricchi (in milioni di dollari) perché, sorprendentemente, si comportano più o meno allo stesso modo. Sono per lo più lavoratori autonomi, vivono al di sotto dei loro mezzi, spendono non più di trecento dollari per un orologio, comprano auto americane usate, investono in corsi di finanza per acculturarsi sugli investimenti, vivono i quartieri della classe media, fanno studiare i figli, etc. Verrebbe da dire (se fossimo cattivi): bella scoperta! Occorreva uno studio di ricerca universitario per arrivare a queste conclusioni? Comunque, quelli descritti, sono senz' altro comportamenti virtuosi che val la pena di adottare.

    Il saggio documenta i risultati illuminanti di un'inchiesta su chi sono i milionari, negli Stati Uniti, e come vivono. Partendo dalla definizione di "milionario", gli autori sono giunti a conclusioni che, a prima vista, sembrano sorprendenti. Dalle interviste, emergono alcuni preziosi consigli su come si accumula la ricchezza -ed anche su come ci si può davvero godere la vita.
    Il motto inespresso in questo libro, che vale la pena di leggere?
    "Non è tutto oro ciò che luccica..."

    The authors did a great research. The concept is simple and very wise. I would've added one more point to the book. Living fragile from 20s to 30s. This way you safe, build good habits saving early in life. Later, expense a bit to experience life in full colors. What's the point to live all your life in a fragile way?

    If you want to be rich one day, but have a hard time controlling your spending habits, this is the book for you. It's one of those classic financial books that I've been putting off reading for some time. It discusses the fact that the majority of millionaires are simple, every-day people that just save their money and cut down on their expenses. It's one of those books that I plan on reading every once in a while to remind me that it doesn't take a big idea or a lucky break to make my own fortune.

    The research conducted by Dr Stanley spelt how and why to become millionaires from interviewing over 700 millionaires in US. Frugality is the first key to get rich. Being a professional, or movie star, does not guarantee a wealth last a lifetime. It is the simple lifestyle that counts. I bought a few copies of this book as gift.
