"Sullivan lays bare a number of his own financial concerns, foibles, and successes. His personal journey… proves both entertaining and instructive. Drawing on research in behavioral economics, the book is timely—taking up the topic of income inequality without picking a side—as well as smart." (Publishers Weekly)
“Rather than function as wealth porn, this book looks at how people with lots of money exercise self-control. Just as you bore of their piousness, it switches focus to those who love to spend. Fun!” (Bloomberg Businessweek)
“I loved Sullivan’s breezy, compelling writing. He’s a natural storyteller and each chapter feels more like a thoughtful conversation with an old and trusted friend than some important lesson you’re supposed to be memorizing… Read The Thin Green Line if you’re looking for new ideas to increase your personal net worth or you want to see how your own decisions measure up to those who’ve had great financial success.” (Better Investing)
"Chances are you will buy this book for its smart and practical advice about building true wealth. (Seriously, buy it.) But what kept me hooked were the tales of money decisions gone horribly awry: fortunes squandered, kids ruined by inheritances, and rich people made miserable by their riches. Learn from the wise, or learn from the foolish--either way, you win." (Dan Heath, coauthor of the New York Times bestsellers Decisive, Switch, and Made to Stick)
"[A] deeper, more sophisticated take on money management... There's good how-to stuff here, but Sullivan's added value is his gentle insistence that wealth and money aren't synonyms." (Kirkus Reviews)

Some sections similar to Millionaire Next Door in terms of identifying successful traits of wealthy. Significant portion of book discusses income inequality, pyschology of money, behavioral finance. I would have enjoyed more focus on successful traits of the wealthy as opposed to so much time on these other areas.
