Did you mean Door, versus Store?

I'm actually reading it. I just started the other night so I can't comment fully on it yet. Some of the things they point out I've been doing without thinking about so hopefully I'm on the path to being a multi-millionaire

It's an interesting read. It gets a bit dry in a few parts, but overall it's well worth picking up.

Definitely worth a read. Would challenge some people's idea of "rich".

Thanks guys, going to pick it up and was wondering if it was worth the read. Yes, I mean door, not store, long day.

I've read The Millionaire Mind as well. A lot of it is common sense. The book contrasts the behavior and habits of people with high salaries and near zero net worth versus those of people who often have a modest salary and lifestyle but high net worth.

Whenever I think of this book I think of the commercial with the guy riding his new tractor in front of his big new house, talking about his new cars, his golf membership, etc., and he says, "I'm in debt up to my eye balls." There are a lot of people around like that.

And the Millionaire Next Door would tell you to get it from the library. It is not something that needs to be kept on the shelf.

That's where I found them. Most of the books I purchase are related to building, repairs, instructional resources, etc.

It's a timely book right now. There's a big dufference between looking rich and being rich.
