BFN Book Reviews

Over the years, I have found it tremendously helpful to see what other people with similar interests have been reading on the topics of personal finance. That is why I am periodically publishing my own reviews – to hopefully be helpful to others. I will provide a brief overview of the book and the author, touch on the good and bad in the book, and finally, give you my personal recommendation for whether you should borrow the book, buy the book, or neither.

Book Review: The Millionaire Next Door

Authors: Thomas Stanley, PhD & William Danko, PhD

My very first book review

Since early 2007, I have read a number of personal finance books during my search to ensure that I was on the right financial path. As I search for other books to read, I also found it tremendously helpful to see what other people with similar interests were reading. My goal is to pass on this information to you as well. I hope to give you a brief overview of the book and the authors, touch on the good and bad in the book, and finally give you my personal recommendation for whether you should borrow the book, buy the book, or act like the book doesn’t exist.

The Millionaire Next Door is the second book I read during this process and it still is what I consider one of the most important to righting my financial ship (shoot, I just gave away the ending!). Click here to continue reading…
