This book contains 14 true stories of people achieving wealth. It's actually worth four and a half stars, but I rounded up.
I think that this book has more pages than the first one, but I am not sure because it's a mess here, and I can not even find my tv guide tonight.
But I do have the new book (More! Rags To Riches) in front of me, and I like it. I really do.
It's good to read about people making it (you know...becoming successful and achieving wealth). Not intimately making it. Financially making it!
Boost your enthusiasm and imagination by reading this book.
