The Millionaire next Store sounds like a good title for the sequel!

I agree dazzleman, an important sentiment in today's economy. Well, I hope to pick it up from the library.

Have you read it yet or are you going to keep polling until somebody pastes the whole text of the book here?

Hey Warrior, sorry if I offended you. I was just inquiring as to what Harry thought might be a better read on the subject. I plan on reading it myself. Enjoy your day!

I forgot to add the smiley --

No offence taken at all, I was more prodding you to take some time and go ahead and read the book (or get it if you haven't). It's one of the many books I've read in a single day/overnight session and definitely worth the time.

I agree with that; however, having a million dollars does not make a person rich.

I think it should be titled, "The frugal upper middle class person next door."

It's titled accurately. It says "millionaire" next door and anybody with a positive net worth of a million+ would be a millionaire.
