Pressestimmen

'...good read...every bit as good as -- if not better than -- his previous books. Highly recommended.' (Fool.co.uk, April 2010).

Klappentext

With the financial crisis, high unemployment, and tight credit, you may be saying to yourself: who is acting rich these days? We're barely making ends meet.

You would think that our wastrel ways are over, we're erasing debt, and stocking up on savings. The reality is that not only are we spenders who barely understand the concept of frugality, we are big spenders on expensive elite brands, and we do it in an attempt to emulate the rich people we see on television, in magazines, and down the street. The recession may have caused us to take a breather, but every indication is that we will pick up right where we left off when gentler economic winds blow again.

Before you spend another dime, read this book and understand how to become rich instead of act rich. Stop Acting Rich . . . And Start Living Like a Real Millionaire will upend every assumption you have about wealthy people: where they shop, what they buy, and most shockingly, where they live (it's not where you think).

Did you know that three times more millionaires live in homes valued at under $300,000 than over $1 million? Would it stun you to learn that more millionaires drive Toyotas than BMWs? How about a second home? Not for the millionaire.

Bestselling author of The Millionaire Next Door and The Millionaire Mind and leading authority on the wealthy, Dr. Thomas Stanley uncovers the truth about spending to show you how you can really live rich.

It all starts with where you live. Live in a prestige neigh?borhood and you will spend more on everything from your car to your watch. Real millionaires understand that living in communities where their neighbors have less net worth than they do naturally leads to spending less. It's easier to be rich when keeping up with the Joneses hardly costs anything.

Dr. Stanley's research also uncovers what makes rich people happy. Life satisfaction comes not from cruising down the highway in a chunk of your net worth, but from having the financial resources to choose—to spend time with family and friends, to volunteer, to pursue interests.

Stop Acting Rich . . . And Start Living Like a Real Millionaire rips the lid off just about every assumption we have about what rich looks like. Few people become rich by way of a high income, and even fewer high-income people are truly rich. The good news is that almost anyone can become wealthy—even without a super high income—if you would just stop acting . . . and instead start living like a rich person.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Voll von Wiederholungen, Wiederholungen... 25. April 2010
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
...und immer mehr Wiederholungen war schon Dr. Thomas Stanley's Buch "The Millionaire Next Door", das vor vielen Jahren, wohl hauptsächlich durch cleveres Marketing, zum Bestseller ernannt wurde. Dieses Vorläufer-Buch war bereits in gedruckter Form nur mäßig informativ und extrem langweilig geschrieben (aber die nicht enden wollende zehnstündige Hörbuch-Version hat dieser Tatsache damals noch die Krone aufgesetzt). Autor Dr. Stanley hat den letzten Jahren schriftstellerisch wenig dazugelernt und quält den Leser in seinem siebten Bestseller "Stop Acting Rich", der im Jahr 2009 auf den Markt der gedruckten Eitelkeiten kam, erneut damit, dass er aus ein paar statistischen Daten mittels stetiger Wiederholungen und Umformulierungen ein ganzes Buch produziert. Man liest lange an Dr. Stanley's Büchern, obwohl sie vom verwendeten englischen Wortschatz her nicht schwierig zu lesen sind. Wiederholungen sind vielleicht im Schulunterricht gut, um ein Thema im Hirn desinteressierter Schüler zu verankern. So wie man aufgeblähte Wiederholungen der gleichen Fakten aber in Dr. Stanley's Buch präsentiert bekommt, empfinde ich es schon als eine gewisse Beleidigung der Intelligenz des Lesers, wenn auch in dem Bestseller-Buch einige Highlights an statistischen Informationen verborgen sind (z.B. das traurige durchschnittliche Jahreseinkommen amerikanischer Leistungssportler und Schauspieler). Auch das Kapitel, das beschreibt, wie Verkäufer Kunden einstufen und Reiche erkennen, war recht nett. Das Buch, könnte für Marketing-Leute interessant sein, denn das Kaufverhalten von Reichen und Möchtegernen bei Uhren, Wodka, Wein und Fahrzeugen wird in einzelnen Kapiteln im Detail analysiert, was mir ganz gut gefiel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Illuminating insights, backed by empirical data. The best personal finance book I have read. 11. November 2009
Von Avinash Sharma, The Yogic Manager - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I read Thomas Stanley's The Millionaire Next Door three years ago and was thoroughly impressed by the insights and research. While reading it I wished the author had published a revised edition with updated numbers - the book was published in 1998. This book (Stop Acting Rich...) covers similar themes as the book I previously mentioned. However, it has updated numbers and includes insights gained from the financial crises of 2008-2009.
The central theme of this book is that there is a difference between those that are genuinely rich and those that act like they are rich. This book details the differences between these two groups of people - what they wear, drive, eat, drink, etc. These differences, presented throughout the book in the form of several tables and lists, are backed by empirical data that are drawn from the author's extensive research on the affluent.
We live in a culture of hyperconsumerism. It is far easier to act rich than to become truly rich. All we have to do is to buy the luxury goods/services that we think the rich buy and we get the feeling that we are rich. But this kind of excessive consumerism is detrimental to our net worth. The author explains that most rich people become wealthy and stay that way by being frugal and by being investment oriented as opposed to consumption oriented. As for wealth and happiness he warns, "those who think that acting rich must be predicated on hyperconsumerism are likely to end up on the short side of both the wealth and happiness scales".
Throughout the book many myths about the rich are dispelled. Their consumption habits are described and compared with those of the pretenders. What brands of shoes, suits, watches, etc do they wear? What wines and spirits do they consume? What motor vehicles do they drive? Where do they shop? And how much do they pay for the goods listed above? The insights are illuminating and thought provoking.
During the financial crisis of 2008-2009, many articles were published regarding the benefits of frugality and the dangers of excessive consumption. In many ways the root of this crisis (sometimes referred to as the Credit Crisis) was excessive borrowing and consumption. I share the author's belief that as soon as the economy improves, people will resume their spendthrift ways. This is most unfortunate since it could lead to a repeat of the crisis we just experienced.
Bottom line - I highly recommend this book as the single best personal finance book I have read. You cannot save the whole of society from this disease of hyperconsumerism. But by educating yourself, you can simplify your lifestyle so that you can be truly rich as opposed to just acting like you are rich.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Stop Acting Rich: The Paradox Of This Book 28. September 2009
Von Dan Danford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a big plan of Tom Stanley's research and books. I first encountered Stanley at a trust conference many years ago, and I've read and recommended his books to dozens of clients and prospects. His insights are helpful and entertaining.

His newest book, Stop Acting Rich: And Start Living Like A Real Millionaire, reveals the differences between what we say and what we do. He chronicles the spending patterns of genuinely rich people, and the lifestyles they enjoy. It's interesting, because there are two groups of people with serious money: the glittering rich (think Donald Trump or Bill Gates) and the millionaires next door. And, as you'd guess, they consume differently.

Spending by the glittering rich, well, glitters. These are the few folks with so much money that spending really doesn't matter. They own multiple cars, multiple timepieces, and they tend to entertain lavishly. We all know who they are and they set a remarkable standard for living.

Other rich people are remarkable for differing reasons. As Stanley has recorded previously, they stand out for their modesty and good sense. These millionaires drive Toyotas, wear Seiko watches, and surround themselves with value-oriented merchandise. We know who these neighbors are, too, but we probably don't realize how financially successful they truly are. They set a different kind of standard.

Here's the paradox of this book. Almost everyone else (and that's a huge chunk of our society) dwells in yet another culture. This is the culture of false wealth. Where looking rich is more important than being rich. It's the world of luxury goods sold to high-income buyers. But, sadly, that spending pattern yields no genuine wealth. The simple act of buying those goods, by itself, is financially counterproductive.

These are residents of mini-mansion neighborhoods. And owners of luxury automobiles and Rolex watches. They send their children to private schools and belong to expensive country clubs. They buy Brooks Brothers suits and shop at exclusive department stores. They are glittering rich wannabes, and they spend most of their income on a prestige lifestyle. There's nothing left for saving.

The depressing truth is this book won't change much. Most of us would rather look rich than be rich. We like those luxury goods and that luxury lifestyle, even if we can't afford them. We can see how sensible living might bring stability and success. We know Tom's right, but we don't want to live in sensible neighborhoods or drive sensible cars or wear sensible clothes.

That's the paradox of Stop Acting Rich. We don't want to.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Financial advice worth taking 24. Januar 2010
Von Holly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I absolutely adored "The Millionaire Next Door" and loaned my copy out regularly. The message of that book was spot-on and there were mounds of research to back it up. I was brought up with depression-era parents who were value-oriented and frugal. They didn't do without and splurged on things that were important to them but didn't waste a dime. I can remember going out to eat and not being able to order a cheeseburger and had to order a hamburger because the cheese cost 5 cents extra and that wasn't worth it. Cars were a means of transportation and were driven until they became undependable. The cars were also ordered without radios since they didn't listen to the radio when they drove, so why pay for something you weren't going to use?

As an adult I have largely maintained the basic philosophy of not worrying about what other people think of you and spending money based upon doing what makes me and my family happy. I have had friends who drove the BMW, that had the huge house, that took the elaborate vacations (philosophy they lived by was that if you can make the payment, you could afford it). Now that I am in my late 40's and time as moved forward, many of those same friends have filed bankruptcy, had to sell the house due to drop in income, etc. and several are having a hard time making it with the current economy. Saving was considered boring and I was actually ridiculed for not spending more money by one friend who eventually filed bankruptcy. Even after all of that, it seems that most people don't really learn their lesson. As soon as they are able, the spending on luxuries ramps back up, little shoring up of savings is done and they are no better off than they were before.

The series of books by Thomas Stanley really hits the nail on the head with who is truly wealthy (largely defined as assets of $1,000,000 or more) and those who are spending it as fast as it comes in so that they can live what they perceive to be the lifestyle of the "rich". What he started in that first book is continued on throughout his other books including this latest one "Stop Acting Rich ... and Start Living Like a Real Millionaire." I would love to make all these books required reading for college students right before they enter the world of work. It would be a real eye-opener for many of them and the ones that "get it" could be saved a lot of financial mistakes.

My bottom line on this particular book:

1) Holds a mirror up to the reader's face to take a good, hard look at the financial decisions being made
2) Pokes holes in the perception that spending money and buying things make you happy
3) Shatters the perception that people who are "rich" spend lavish amounts of money on luxury goods including cars, homes and other things to impress the people around them.
4) If the reader learns nothing else but the phrase "Big Hat, No Cattle" it's worth it.
5) On the negative side - it is pretty repetitive at times particularly when large amounts of time is spent on particular items - for example, the price of wine purchased and the number of bottles in the home

Many people won't like the message - talk about an "inconvenient truth" -- but all of us should listen.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great message but too repetitive 3. November 2009
Von T. Murphy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I looked forward to reading "Stop Acting Rich" but I found it to be too repetitive. Although the book is 200+ pages, I felt as though the first chapter covered the ultimate message and the remainder of the book only served to reiterate the concepts without significantly furthering them. Sure, some examples and data in later chapters further reinforced the message but one could easily get the message within the first few pages, skip the rest of the book, and still understand the point that less consumption, decreased spending, and more frugal living is more likely to help you gain wealth than buying fancy cars, expensive clothes, and enormous homes. I liked the book but felt a bit short-changed when I found the chapters to be so repetitive.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Timeless advice 7. Dezember 2009
Von amazonfan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read and enjoyed a few of the Stanley books. This one is as good as all his others. Reading books like this will help keep you from falling into the consumptive lifestyle. My wife and I own a small business that I started. We have a net worth of about $4 million, of which about $2 million is in cash and stocks. We have no debt. We give 10% to charity each year. I grew up on welfare, my wife not much better. We live below our means, drive Honda cars and have a $500k house in a MN suburb. We have maybe 20 years or so before retirement. I worked 100 hour weeks for years on end. I'm in no way trying to brag or be arrogant. If you can live below your means, save religiously, not succumb to our consumer oriented society, and give to charity, I think you have a recipe to easily be a millionaire someday. I'd like to retire with $10 million. If I don't make it, that's ok because I'm already so far away from those 18 years of welfare that I know I'll never be back there---ever.
