Very insightful

(Spoiler) A logical and thorough analysis of the advantages of being frugal. To a certain degree repetitive but very insightful. I can recommend this book to anyone looking to prioritize financial independence as compared to a “rich lifestyle”.

Fascinating listening despite dated study material

Being recommended by a huge number of books in the field of how to become affluent, I decided to buy the audiobook of "The millionaire next door" and was highly pleased with it. Based on the pros and cons listed below, I can recommend this audiobook, which provided me with fascinating insights into the world of the first-generation affluent.

The pros:
- the featured studies focus on the first generation affluent, who "did it on their own" so to speak, and didn't inherit their wealth (although both groups are compared regarding their beliefs when it comes to money throughout the audiobook)
- surprising facts about first generation self-made millionaires (e.g. they don't look the part, spending habits etc.)
- encourages the listener to think about his/her own habits and how they differ from the PAW (prodigeous accumulators of wealth)
- pleasant voice of Cotter Smith as narrator
- interestingly written despite the fact that the book is comprised of a lot of statistics

The cons
- The studies cited date from the 1980s to approximately 1999, which nowadays have become a bit "long in the tooth". Still, the case studies provide many timeless wisdoms, which give you interesting insights into human psychology (e.g. why children of affluent parents don't automatically become affluent themselves; why affluent people encourage their children to become professionals rather than entrepreneurs etc.)
- Although the key messages are certainly interesting, the chapter on the car buying habits of the affluent is a bit lengthy (e.g. the authors even detail which brands and models of cars the affluent prefer!!)
