After reading The Millionaire Next Door, I gained a better understanding of what it takes to accumulate wealth. A lot of research was put into writing this book. This book details many of America’s wealthy and what it took for them to get there. Building wealth is not easy. It takes a lot of hard work, discipline, and sacrifice to get there. If you are looking for a get rich quick scheme, then this book is not for you. I like the honest approach this book takes to building wealth. When you work hard to accumulate all that wealth, you value it more versus being handed the money.
