To their credit, the authors do a good job of debunking the myth of the "ritzy" millionaire, for which I am grateful.

This is about all I got out of this book. Good thing I didn't pay for it.

I read it about a year ago or so and so did my wife. What we loved was the authors bashing the lawyers and doctors for owning new cars and expensive suits. Well, my wife is a lawyer and we run a small firm. If ANY of our clients saw us in a cheap ratty suit we'd be fired. Also, when she visits clients they are not at all subtle about checking out our car (we bought it new and sprung for the leather seats and all). Clients of professionals want to be able to see that their hired help are successful and they look for very materialistic things to guage that. This was not addressed at all in the book. In fact the authors went so far as to say that the lawyers and doctors were "wasting" money on these items. Argh!

Anyway, that equation was crap too.
