As the grandchild of a self made millionaire who repeated all my life and that of my mother (his daughter) - "watch your pennies and your dollars will take care of themselves" ... his frugal, bordering on cheap, behavior made him wealthy but what he said vs what he did in his own finances were total opposites. Before he passed away, we had an important conversation wherein he revealed he felt he had been a failure. In fact, he had co-founded a bank, been a key investor in other very successful ventures (start ups in their day) including modest real estate, investments and substantial stock in other companies and was a tremendous philanthropist. He built a very successful company and sold it at 60 while he preached to the family to be anything but self-employed which, as many know, the most common path to wealth and financial freedom.
That is why, when I found this book after reading a story distilled from Steve's chapters in Business Insider, I immediately bought the Kindle version. I could not be more THRILLED!!!
After having so much financial heresy thoughout my life from family, institutions, employers, educators, media even religious leaders - finding Steve's book with his wisely written chapters was a true God send and incredibly transformative.
I have read many other worthy books - but this one - comparing side by side what the "middle class 'masses' " believe vs the "world class" - has truly been one of the best investments I have ever made. EVER!
Unfortunately for me - I bought it several months ago and read it bit by bit - finally finishing the last 60 chapters in a matter of days. When beginning to read the chapters it took me a while to adapt my thinking and do the suggested exercises at the end of each chapter. Since I was beginning to change my thinking and internal "chatter" i.e. "keep you head down and do your job" to world class thinking - the process took some time plus lots & lots of personal journal entries. It was indeed time well spent!
During the process I discovered more about myself that I didn't realize and am very thankful for this book and the wisdom and insight Steve shares. I am moving in a much more positive direction and am excited about the future again.
As a long time small business owner - I bucked the family trend - my grandfather knew about it before he died and was proud of me. That said, through many upheavals and losses in my life, I am at a new chapter personally and professionally and now get up every day - despite the challenges - looking forward to new opportunities. I truly believe my Best Days are out in front of me ... not as a Pollyanna - but as a more informed adult, ready to tackle the hard issues and overcome my past "stinkin' thinkin' " as some call it.
Steve - thank you for this book. I look forward to your next one and, in the future if you update this one, I will buy it too.
My conclusion: the rich aren't stupid enough to buy this book. (yeah, I know what it says about me!)
The only thing I don't like about it is how it is arranged. It is 100 successive truisms. I would have liked to see it organized in different section--I've found that a lot of material is repeated in this book.
