6. The Millionaire Next Door: Surprising Secrets of America's Wealthy by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko
Ahh, to be a millionaire. The glitz, the glamour, the five-star restaurants and designer clothes. If you think that's how most millionaires live in America, you must read The Millionaire Next Door (1996).
This book takes a groundbreaking look at the wealthy and reveals that most millionaires live quietly among non-millionaires. You won't find any "lifestyles of the rich and famous" profiles in this book; just ordinary folks who rolled up their sleeves and worked and saved hard.
