Publishers Description "Readers with an entrepreneurial turn of mind will devour "The Millionaire Mind" because it provides road maps on how millionaires found their niches."After its first publication, Dr. Thomas J. Stanley's second best-seller "The Millionaire Mind" spent over four months on the New York Times best-seller list, rising to position #2, and has sold over half a million copies. Here is the first paperback edition of Stanley's second groundbreaking study of America's wealthy. "The Millionaire Mind" targets a population of millionaires who have accumulated substantial wealth and live in ways that openly demonstrate their affluence. Exploring the ideas, beliefs, and behaviors that enabled these millionaires to build and maintain their fortunes, Dr. Stanley provides a fascinating look at who America's financial elite are and how they got there. *What were their school days like? *How did they respond to negative criticism? *What are the characteristics of the millionaire's spouse? *Is religion an important part of their lives? The author uncovers the surprising answers to these and similar questions, showing readers through concrete examples just what it is that makes the wealthy prosper when others would turn away dejected or beaten. "The Millionaire Mind" promises to be as transformational as Dr. Stanley's previous best-seller. This book answers universal questions with solid statistical evidence in an approachable, and anecdotal style. The number of copies sold of this soon-to-be-classic will surely be in the millions.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Millionaire Mind?
Audio book is the best Jun 12, 2008
I bought the book few months ago but I did not finish it, so I bought the audio book that I play when I am driving around in town audio books are good for people like me who are busy.
Don't read this review! This book is not for everyone! May 14, 2008
Not everyone will benefit from this book. Those who have strong prejudices against the rich and believe wealth comes by winning the lottery may not enjoy it. (Don't read it unless you desire the truth.) Those who strive to do the right thing, live a balanced life and practice good judgment will love it. You will feel strengthened by the scientific research that confirms your beliefs about work, play, money and family. I absolutely loved this book and would strongly recommend it to everyone who desires to know how millionaires live and think. This is the best book I have seen on the subject hands down! - Pat Shamblin (720)422-7447 http://www.denverluxuryrealestate.com
Very insigthfull although somewhat dated. Apr 29, 2008
This book is basically some enlightened research paper that has very powerful implications for everyday use. Although the data is more that 10 years old by now it is still relevant to today's realities. A real eye opener. Recommended for small business owners or anyone else that wants to be worth more than one million dollars in the near future.
Another great book by Thomas Stanley Sep 26, 2007
Interesting insights into the typical millionaire personality. If you liked the Millionaire Next Door, this is an interesting book written along the same lines.
Statistical truth is half truth Sep 9, 2007
I actually bought this by mistake. I was looking for Harv Ecker's book Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind, which I liked even less.
Want to become a millionaire? Forget it if you're a single woman. Forget it if you're a man who chooses to marry a woman with dreams of her own. This book winds up being so supportive of the 'father knows best' stereotype of what leads to success that I found it annoying. This book looks for, and finds, great successful MEN who own businesses, go to church, have "supportive loving" wives and families. They turn out to be the largest group of the rich. What a surprise.
