5.0 out of 5 stars An honest account from a person who has been there and done that, April 19, 2008
This review is from: How To Get Rich (Paperback)
This book is different from all the other get rich books that I have read because it is written by an author who is truly rich (he's one of the richest men in Britain).

Felix Dennis is very honest about what he thinks are absolutely required to become rich, and it's not a walk in the park. It is HARD work. There ARE sacrifices to be made. Desire alone is not enough, you need COMPULSION if you want to become truly rich.

That, and other things that he shares in this book are truly a lot more valuable because they are his personal accounts about his journey from rags to riches, written by the man himself. He really sat down and wrote this book.

It's not one of those Donald Trump books that were authored by some unknown guy who is not rich himself. (Come on, between doing The Apprentice, dating Knauss, dealing with his business, you think The Donald would actually sit down and write a book like this? Get real. It's most probably a ghost writer who chats with him a few times and make it into a book.)

It's not a book written by some guy who made a few millions doing Velcro business and started dreaming up a rich dad and some silly board game that was so bad I stopped playing after 10 minutes.

It's not a book written by some guy who sold his business for a few million then started doing seminars about fixing your mindset to become rich.

Felix Dennis doesn't need your money unlike countless other (in his words) get rich authors--and that is why this book is so honest, and in the long run, useful. Because unlike those countless get rich books, this book doesn't sell an easy dream. It doesn't give you the illusion that if only you do these simple 7 or 14 steps or install this mindset or watch your cash flow or whatever, then you'll become rich.

No.

Instead, it's the opposite--it forces you to really think and look into the deepest of your self: do you really want to be rich? Because if you really, really want to, THESE are the things that you HAVE to go through. THESE are the sacrifices that you may need to make. And THIS is what it's really like when you have more than half a billion dollars, and how it's not all what you think it is going to be.

I may not ever get as rich as Felix Dennis. But I'm glad and thankful to him for writing this kind of book because it gives me a true, honest peek into the world of the rich--including the darker and uglier side of it.

Your comment sums it up well. It'll be a waste of time for me to try to add anything!
