I read it. Own it. Okay book. Quite simplistic notion, actually. The
book reminds me of something Suzy Orman would write. ;) Worth a read. But
they're saying that in order to be a "millionaire," one must sacrifice
everything. Drive a beat-up 1977 Chevy Malibu, never eat out, dress in
eight-year-old flannel shirts, and live in a blue-collar neighborhood. I
can do the last one, I mean, I current do it, no problem. If you have the
stomach for it, almost anyone can hit a mill, they say.
