Dieser Titel ist in englischer Sprache.
Was können Sie tun, um sich in die Schicht der Wohlhabenden Amerikas einzureihen (die als solche Menschen definiert werden, deren Nettovermögen eine Million Dollar übersteigt)? Nach Ansicht der Autoren Thomas Stanley und William Danko, die die letzten 20 Jahre damit verbracht haben, Mitglieder dieses Eliteclubs zu befragen, ist es ganz einfach: Man muß nur sieben einfache Regeln befolgen.

Die erste Regel lautet: Leben Sie stets um einiges unter Ihren Verhältnissen. Und die Letzte: Seien Sie klug bei der Wahl Ihres Berufes. Um die fünf Regeln dazwischen zu erfahren, müssen Sie sich schon das Buch kaufen. Die Schlußfolgerungen der Autoren klingen vernünftig; ihre Empfehlungen stehen aber oft in krassem Widerspruch zu dem, was wir glauben, wie sich wohlhabende Menschen verhalten sollten. In diesem Buch gibt es keine Popstars oder Profisportler, dafür aber jede Menge Spanplattenhersteller -- insbesondere solche, die sich preisgünstige und seltene Urlaubsreisen erlauben!

Erbarmungslos zeigen Stanley und Danko auf, wie sich Wohlstand auf Opferbereitschaft, Disziplin und harte Arbeit gründet -- Eigenschaften, von denen wir durch unsere Konsumgesellschaft eindeutig abgehalten werden. "Sie sind nicht das, was Sie fahren", mahnen die Autoren, und irgendwo da oben sitzt Benjamin Franklin und lächelt.

How can you join the ranks of America's wealthy (defined as people whose net worth is over one million dollars)? It's easy, say doctors Stanley and Danko, who have spent the last 20 years interviewing members of this elite club: you just have to follow seven simple rules. The first rule is, always live well below your means. The last rule is, choose your occupation wisely. You'll have to buy the book to find out the other five. It's only fair. The authors' conclusions are commonsensical. But, as they point out, their prescription often flies in the face of what we think wealthy people should do. There are no pop stars or athletes in this book, but plenty of wall-board manufacturers--particularly ones who take cheap, infrequent vacations! Stanley and Danko mercilessly show how wealth takes sacrifice, discipline, and hard work, qualities that are positively discouraged by our high-consumption society. "You aren't what you drive," admonish the authors. Somewhere, Benjamin Franklin is smiling.

Anyone wanting to learn how to make money should buy one of Andrew Tobias' books and use this one to stop that kitchen table that you bought 30 years ago from rocking back and forth. Thomas J. (my other car is a Z-28) Stanley and William D. Danko go to great statistical links to explain why your neighbor has more money than you. In fact, this book is overloaded with statistics on everything imaginable.
There is some practical information here, but the reader has to be ready to wade through mounds of data and numbers. Much of the information is obvious, too. In a nutshell, want to save a lot of money? Don't spend any!
Stanley and Danko have published their doctoral theses and made a lot of money in doing so. Now Stanley is going to tell us about the Millionaire Mind? I haven't looked at that one yet, but I'll bet a quick thumbing of the book will show a lot of charts and stats. Prepare to help Stanley get richer at your expense and prepare to be bored.

This book, changed my conception of what it was to be wealthy. I always had thought that wealth was represented by Rolls Royce's, Patek Philippe watches, expensive houses etc etc etc. This book will blow your mind, if you believe these things represent wealth.
The premise of the book, is that there are usually 3 kinds of "rich" people, the super rich that can afford the absolute luxuries without problem, the ones who look wealthy, the cars, lifestyle etc, but have nothing in the bank, they are all front, and the ones who are wealthy but live simple non dazzle lifstyles.
What this book teaches the student of wealth, is that to look wealthy is not the same as being wealthy. Looking wealthy is a falacy, that can lead you to finacial ruin. Throughout the book it gives real life examples. What would you prefer a new Rolls Royce, or a 5 year old Rolls but an addtional $50,000 in the bank from the savings you make on buying second hand? The upfront keep up with the Jones's will buy the new one, the true millionaire will buy the older car, and invest the saved capital and make money on the investment. Capital should not be spent, only intrest off the capital should be spent on depreciating luxury items.
This book has changed my life. I lived a life of "luxury" believing that I could afford it. This book gave me a diffrent perspective on wealth, and my competitve spending stopped, and my wealth has soared. I now live 50% under my wage, instead of 100% of my wage. I love saving and investing money, instead of spending. I know that wealth is not about lifestyle, but what is truely in the bank.
The book must be read in conjunction with, The Richest Man In Babylon, The Greatest Salesman in the World and The Science of Getting Rich.

I'm frugal, yet this book excited me so much that I bought a pile of them and gave them to many close friends with strong urgings to read. The second time this has ever happened to me. This book presents a realistic method for becoming financially independent. The key element is saving 15% of your pre-tax income, and investing that for the long term. What a small price to pay for true financial freedom! A core idea implied here is changing the typical American "order of operation". By sacrificing some spending now, one can then have plenty of toys and goodies later, if that is important. Or do whatever you want - free of a ball-and-chain job. An unexpected bonus was a look into the (counter-intuitive) effects of parents giving substantial sums of money to adult children. Hint - it usually makes them worse off financially in the long run. They also had some excellent data on thinking about your investments in AFTER-tax terms. This was before index funds became the rage, and I hadn't thought enough about this. Simple, practical advice that helped me seek out better alternatives, and therefore a more lucrative long term strategy. What I really liked about this book was that it presented the "live an honest, frugal, and hardworking life" in a practical context - that of reaping the substantial reward of financial freedom. For so many of these people, the independence they had gained, and the personal pride and contentment in that freedom made them so happy, it's hard to imagine any amount of consumer goods providing that. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness...hmmm - sound familiar? For me it was a great motivator. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

4.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful 10. Juli 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A wise man once said, "If you want to be wealthy, you need to study wealth." That is exactly what best-selling authors, Stanley and Danko, have done for the last twenty years.

I would like to congratulate these two authors for their clear and entertaining way of presenting their findings. The message they share in their book The Millionaire Next Door is one of hope and homey wisdom: the 3,500,000 millionaire households in the US have certain common traits, and you can learn the "secrets" that they live by if you desire personal wealth.

What is notable is what didn't make the list of traits. Expensive clothes, flashy cars, or high-consumption lifestyles are not the domain of the typical millionaire; they are more characteristic of the chronically over-extended! A key distinction in this book is the difference between income and wealth. Even people with a modest income, by following prudent principles, can enjoy great wealth over time. On the other hand, top income-earners often spend their money as fast as they earn it, leaving them with few accumulated assets over the years. This insight is particularly useful to young couples like my husband and I. It is very comforting to know that one is really able to become financially independent and hence free in every sense of the word in this country.

A few puzzling things though: 1) I wonder about the totally neglected mention of the ethnic Chinese( or any other Asian group for that matter)successes in the book. This calls into question the thoroughness of their research. 2) I was expecting an insighful elaboration of two of the denominators mentioned, ie, "They are proficient in targeting market opportunities" and "They chose the right occupation.
