If you want to be a millionaire tommorow, then this isn't the right book for you. ONO is about "teaching you how to be a 1 thousandaire then a ten thousandaire...." and more important doing this while living a fulfilled life.
However, I was disappointed after having read Warnke's book. It is down to earth. It addresses a mistaken worldview that working for someone else and earning a living is enough, or worse, a way to wealth. But so do a whole host of other books, ones Warnke even cites, such as the 4-Hour Workweek. The novel approach, if any, is the focus on the newfound freedom of time and wealth should be your family.
In a nutshell: Manage your time, be frugal, save money, invest in yourself, become wealthy and spend more time with your family.
My disappointment stems from the expectation of a book that would address the worker as a whole. Being a father, mother, or spouse is more than being a provider. Wealth need not be the goal to accomplishing a fulfillment of one's family role, although an entrepreneurial approach lends itself to such a goal better than working for someone else.
For example, Meg Cadoux Hirshberg of Stonyfield Farms Yogurt has developed a reputation (and a column for Inc. Magazine) on entrepreneurial and family life that is distinct from the growing number of entrepreneurial inspirational books on the market for its focus on dealing with issues unique to our situations.
Don't Miss Your Boat: Living Your Life with Purpose in the Real World,Your Exceptional Life Begins Now,
The 4-Hour work Week: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich
This book reminds us what is truly important. Spending time with the people you really love and care about means sacrificing a little on the financial side to gain a tremendous lifestyle of time and freedom. I think this book will become the new Four Hour Work Week.
