5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational!, May 24, 2009
This review is from: Rich Like Them: My Door-to-Door Search for the Secrets of Wealth in America's Richest Neighborhoods (Hardcover)
I borrowed this book from the library. But after reading one chapter I knew that I had to own a copy and bought one. It's the type of book you want to pick up as a reference.

This book is quite similar to Thomas J. Stanley's 'The Millionaire Mind'. The people I have read about so far, did not have any exceptional talent or extrodinary abilties. They just worked smart, worked hard, believed in themselves. They set a goal and focused on accomplishing that goal.

One of the things I liked is the people that are interviewed are pretty much regular folks. They don't put on airs, they are just very level headed and practical.

The negative reviews I have read so far seem to be calling the book superficial for not providing more insight on how to get rich. I think they are missing the point. This is not a paint by numbers book on how to get rich. This is a book about the qualties of the men and women who lived in the lavish houses and how they came to be rich and successful

Like anything else in life, there are no shortcuts. You have to have a vision and a goal and be prepared to work very hard to achieve that goal. You also need to believe in yourself.
