Frankly, there's nothing new in this book. But it is a concise description of what it takes to become wealthy. Will reading the book make you a millionaire? Of course not. But it will put you on the right track. It is a quick read. I recommend reading it straight through in one sitting...then reviewing a chapter a day until your actions model millionaire behavior. Dr. Thomas Stanley's Millionaire Next Door and Millionaire Mind provide plenty of evidence to support what Smith talks about in his book. The strength of this particular book is that 10 clear easy-to-understand steps are described so that you don't have to parse through the statistics to find out what works and what doesn't. Instead of slipping cash in a card this holiday season for that high school or college student, give them a copy of this book. Note that this book is not about greed. It is about acquiring wealth and being a good person at the same time. The two are compatible.

You'll not find a more simplified, boiled down analysis of what separates the rich from, well, everybody else. No, this isn't a book talking about how rich people are a bunch of greedy SOB's. Nor is it talking about some get-rich-quick scheme or how you can make millions of dollars overnight. While the book may be short, it's quite simple in its approach answering the question, why do some people have more money than others?

The top ten distinctions the author walks us through outline the basic idea that how successful you are is largely determined by your thoughts and your actions. Most millionaires have achieved their success because they had the right mindset to become millionaires. They had goals and sacrificed what they had to to get there, but they also kept their frame of mind in the right place, asking the right questions, taking risks, and developing ideas.

Because of its simplicity, Top Ten Distinctions makes it clear that anybody has it within themselves to become a millionaire. Sure, some have more hurdles to cross than others, but these things can all be overcome and financial success-financial freedom-can be achieved by anyone who puts their mind to it. The distinctions between millionaires and middle class are not that millionaires have more money, they were just determined not to live out a middle class existence that often struggles to pay bills, afford vacations, or are living from paycheck to paycheck.

Financial freedom is available to all. Once you know what separates those that have much from those that don't, you can begin to mold yourself to have the mindset that allows you to become free financially. Oh, and just for a quick preview, my favorite distinction was number four: Millionaires believe they must be generous. The middle class believes it can't afford to give. I can't tell you how many times I've thought that I can't afford to donate here or help that person there. I'm off to change my own mindset!

Have you ever wondered why so many self-help books don't seem to help? I think there are basically two reasons. The first if the people simply do not take action on the information in the book. The second reason and perhaps the most disappointing one is that people do not really understand what it takes to be successful. It is simply not enough to learn the things to do and how to do them.

Many self-help teachers give the advice: Pick out someone who is successful and do exactly what they do. While that is good advice, there are some things a person does that we simply cannot see. We cannot see their mindset. And that is where most people go wrong. They concentrate on the tactics and techniques and fail to understand the mindset of successful people.

It is a basic truth that successful people think differently than average people. So it stands to reason, unless we understand how successful people think and learn to think like they do, we are never going to achieve the success we dream of.

I have read many books but never one so succinct when it comes to understanding the mindset of successful people. Keith has identified 10 distinctions between highly successful people and average people. And he has provided a good explanation about why these principles work and the difference they can make in your life.

The book is short and easy to read. However, one reading will not change your mindset. You need to read it often to internalize the ideas and concepts. You need for these concepts to become your mindset. Adopt the 10 distinctions for your own. Understand them and more importantly, live them.

I found this book to be a near complete waste of time. The author delivers a series of insipid statements that border on pabulum. He claims he is a student of millionaires, and that is where he gained his supreme knowledge of wealth accumulation. But alas, he often repeats statements to the effect that he is not a financial planner, tax accountant, etc. and therefore cannot offer any real suggestions or help. And he only mentions a single millionaire he seems to have any dealings with. A pretty small statistical sample by any definition.

Even though I paid little for my copy (purchased used), I couldn't help but feel duped when I continually came across sentences the author "purposely" repeated in print because they were so important. Being a tiny book and just over 100 pages, I suspect the real purpose of the repetitions was that he had little worthy to print so used this convention to increase the length of the book. It insults the intelligence of most readers. And don't even get me started on the size of the margins.

If you really want a worthy study of how to gain wealth, skip this tripe and pick up the excellent The Millionaire Next Door by Stanley and Danko. It is a more scientific study how how wealth is truly acquired written by two university professors utilizing a statistically significant number of millionaires in their research. The book has been out awhile but is still excellent. You can pick it up used to save money (I'm sure the authors will understand). Another excellent work that involves much more than wealth accumulation (as 10 Distinctions portends but does not deliver) is Getting Rich in America: Eight Simple Rules for Building a Fortune--And a Satisfying Life by Dwight R. Lee.
