Summary Description

Much of what you believe about being successful is wrong.  Millionaires typically do not live or spend the way most people expect them to, while people who are not rich often spend on luxuries they cannot afford.

Why do so many people who are not rich hyper-spend on luxuries?  Often, they think that collecting these expensive toys will make them feel happier.  But as we'll explain in our summary of Stop Acting Rich:  And Start Living Like a Real Millionaire, by Thomas J. Stanley, happiness has little to do with what you wear, drive, eat, or drink.

Stanley is America’s foremost authority on the affluent, and has been on a lifetime journey of identifying the myths and realities of the rich.  He is the author of several award-winning books on America’s wealthy population, including The Millionaire Next Doorand The Millionaire Mind, which spent more than 170 weeks combined on the New York Times’ Best Sellers list.  More than three million copies of his books have been sold worldwide.

Stanley is also chairman of the Affluent Market Institute, through which he has developed research-based marketing and selling strategies for identifying, attracting, and retaining wealthy clients.

As our summary explains, the people with the greatest satisfaction are those who live below their means.  Even during the recent peaks of income production, the residential real estate market, and the bull stock market, millionaires maintained their habits of thrift and frugality.  After discovering how rich people really spend their money, you will learn how to avoid falling into the “acting rich” trap, and how to start living like a real millionaire.
