From the Inside Flap
The Secret Millionaires Club began with a bunch of local kids who wanted to use their spare money to help the community. They soon began to learn about business, and found that they could help others around the world with their own growing businesses, as well. Along the way, they learned a lot of good lessons not just about business, but about growing as successful people. When the kids came to me to ask for advice, I gave them ideas which I had learned myself over the years and seen had helped others to be successful as well. Sometimes I asked friends of mine to come and be a part of the stories. They were always smart people with their own valuable lessons to teach . . . Jay-Z and Shaquille O'Neal and Kelly Rowland and Nick Cannon . . . even Bill Gates came along on one of our adventures.
Almost always, the members learned very simple principles and concepts. We have found that these simple principles not only helped them and their businesses to be successful, but helped them to grow and mature as people and citizens of the community. They include lessons on borrowing and loaning money. On choosing partners and good managers. On the importance of always trying new ideas, and saving money, of course. All the lessons in the book are seen in the TV series, the Secret Millionaires Club, and we are proud to share them with you now.
We think we have a pretty nifty book for you to read, and we hope you will enjoy it.
Warren, Andy, and Amy
From the Back Cover
Priceless financial advice everyone can relate to from one of the world's most respected businessmen and the most successful investor of all time
Of course you know who Warren Buffett is; he's the most successful investor in the worldmaybe of all time. But what do you know about his approach to business and investing? It's an approach that, over the past four decades, has made him one of the most respected men in America.
But as Buffett himself will tell you, at the heart of any wealth-building system there are certain core beliefs, not just about finance, but about business, work, morality, your responsibility to yourself, your family, and society, and about living a decent life.
A treasure trove of wisdom and expert advice from which you and your kids will benefit for a lifetime, the Secret Millionaires Club gives you:
- Lessons on personal finance Warren Buffett has learned over the course of his legendary career
- Buffett's personal reflections on money, life, business, ethics, and more
- A unique opportunity to learn the fundamentals of personal finance from Mr. Buffett himself
- Inspirational quotes
Written in conjunction with the hit television series, Secret Millionaires Club and with Warren Buffett's support and input, this book makes Buffett's financial philosophy and homespun life lessons available to everyone outside his "Secret Club."

The lessons are centered around a group of kids from different backgrounds - a black kid who loves computers, a Chinese girl who's into fashion, a white kid who's a skateboarder, and a girl from South or Central America who has some other kind of interest. They all hang out with Warren Buffett, and they also have other people drop in like Shaquille O'Neill and Kelly Rowland when they aren't going back in time to help great emperors!
I don't dislike this book as a beginner's intro because it can be plowed through so quickly, and I believe the lessons will stick, such as not borrowing money, trying again after you fail, and to make a commitment to a life of learning.
Having said that, I would not go out of my way to check out the TV show.
As a last note, my 10-year-old felt like she was being sold something (the TV show) as we read it, making this more of a bad commercial than a good edutainment product.
