I agree with Bob's book suggestion of The Millionaire Next Door. It's a very fast read and you will never look at people quite the same way after reading it. Yesterday, a friend of mine commented on someone else having just bought a new Lexus and said, "They must be doing pretty well." I suggested she read the book. Sure, some people who have tons of liquid money also drive fancy cars, but they appear to be more of the exception than the rule. Ditto the owners of mansions. Another friend of mine told me she checks out the shoes men wear to gauge how much money they have. Being that I felt this such a shallow thing to do, I didn't even bother telling her how foolish (little f) a thing that is to do. Perhaps I should let her know, since she is a friend, huh?
