Dr. Thomas J Stanley wrote a book back in 1996 called The Millionaire Next Door - an earth shattering research study on America’s wealthy. Stanley performs an intriguing analysis on how wealth is built in this country – not with inheritance or advanced degrees. If you like this blog, you have got to read this book!
Dr. Stanley authored a new book last year called “Stop Acting Rich: And Start Living like a Real Millionaire”. It is a fantastic read that describes keeping up with the Joneses like you would not believe. I think Stanley’s writing is extremely refreshing, perhaps because rather than simply sharing his opinion he uses research to deliver the message.
