About this deal

If you dare to do something different or to create large amounts of wealth, people will criticize you and tell you how you will fail at every corner.

No matter how much faculty of idle seeing a man has, the step from knowing to doing is rarely taken. if you want to be rich, working a damn sight harder than the punk next to you is the only sensible option . This book is different from other books with similar titles (or so I would assume as I have not read the others) because the author has actually done it in real life. A job for the rich-in-training is merely something to keep you ticking over, to put food on your plate and wine in your glass. But the book is full of that sort of sage observation and is truly brilliant in places: Page 23 is a great analysis of why people who have got loads of money are driven to make more and it is the first time I have ever seen it rationalised.Myself a businessman of 24 years with a company which installs CCTV and Security Equipment but I'm in a much smaller pond to Felix, but id feel his book will help me, and if I don't achieve the goal of the title, at least it might hoist me a few rungs, and if not it was a great read anyway ! Far better ruthlessly analyze what your particular aptitudes are and act upon them rather than attempt to graft an oak tree onto a dandelion.

Also, being okay with losing everything but still maintaining a “predator” like ambition, which will force you to attack the problems at hand and make your dream into a reality. More men and women have become rich by this single tactic than all “the best-laid plans of mice and men” guided by plodding strategy. The more bold you are, the better chance you have of getting in on the ground floor and confounding the odds. This is the best book I have read about how to acquire wealth; the pitfalls, the obstacles to avoid, the mistakes people make and the never give up spirit espoused by Wnston Churchill. Some of it is practical - such as how he handled the 4 employees who politely threatened to leave his firm and start a competing company if he didn't give them a quarter of his equity, or the rules he requires all board members to adhere to.If you want to be rich, then watch your rivals closely and never be ashamed to emulate a winning strategy. What are riches anyway, compared to health or the peace of mind that even a modicum of contentment brings in its wake? Until one is committed, there is hesitancy; the chance to draw back; always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Because Felix Dennis is going to stop him wasting a lot of time believing that some people are nicer and cleverer than they are or that reading those idiotic books about leadership from people who could not navigate their way to an ice cream parlour on a hot day is going to make an iota of difference to his wealth. He also has a very realistic understanding of the role luck played in his fortunes (his first big financial success came from being in the process of co-writing a biography of Bruce Lee when the star suddenly died), as well as the steps he took to maximize those breaks. If you are young and reading this then I ask you to remember just this: you are richer than anyone older than you, and far richer than those who are much older. Especially in the early days of your company, delegation and promotion are among your most powerful weapons in getting rich.There are other works similar to Dennis’s How to Get Rich, one of which is How to Get Rich on Purpose, a book by a motivational speaker named DeWayne Owens. There are so many reasons not to do anything, many of them highly persuasive, especially in the mouth of a Jeremiah. True happiness, once a modicum of security is achieved, is about who you are and how you relate to the world regardless of how many things you have. The assumption that you might be able to achieve some goal if you only wished hard enough is not just a f***-up. Fun fact - Dennis has made much of his fortune in the publishing industry, starting out with computer magazines and ultimately founding Maxim.

And, for most people, the commitment, sacrifice and pure energy required to become rich will simply be too much. The contrast between its content and typical self-help books stood out - you have to be self-centered; only when one is wealthy, comes the ability to provide. He made two thirds of his fortune working and sharing equity with his partners Peter and Bob in America. What also makes the journey through the book really enjoyable is the wicked wit and sense of humour of Felix with little bursts of insightful poetry. Otherwise, just be the man who switches the trains from track to track without having to know what is in the cattle trucks .You should stop dreaming uselessly of what could be or might have been and just get on with your life as either a functionary in the system or as a creative in some field of endeavour in which you have certain talent.
