News & Opinion: Books To Make You A Millionaire?

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:03 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Andy Serwer has penned the article Can These Books Really Make You a Millionaire? for Fortune's annual retirement issue. Not to spoil it for you, but he thinks the books won't help you. We generally think the same thing. You'll notice we don't talk much about the personal finance category, because it really seems like alot of the same.
Andy says Amazon will give you 40,000 results on "millionaire". To begin to show ridiculous it is, I am going to list all of the titles from Andy's article :
  • The Millionaire Next Door
  • The Millionaire Mind
  • Millionaire Women Next Door
  • The Automatic Millionaire
  • The Weekend Millionaire's Secrets to Investing in Real Estate
  • Lunchtime Millionaire
  • The Instant Millionaire
  • The Accidental Millionaire
  • How to Marry a Multi-Millionaire
  • Becoming a Millionaire God's Way
  • Millionaire by 40
  • Millionaire by 26
  • How to Be a Teenage Millionaire
  • Discovering the Millionaire in Every Child
  • Cracking the Millionaire Code
  • The One Minute Millioniare

Sorry about leaving out the links. There are just too many... :)
