Présentation de l'éditeur

The Very, Very Rich provides revealing insights into the intriguing world of big money, recounting the spectacular success stories of 15 men who made it to the very, very top.In 1972, Max Gunther invited readers to take a journey with him through a gallery of America's most prominent millionaires. The inhabitants framed here are by no means merely ordinary millionaires though, as the minimum qualifying standard to be considered for inclusion is ownership of assets valued at $100 million or more (the equivalent of $500 million today).This classic is now nearly 40 years old but its value endures, since the key steps on the route to wealth do not change with time. These secrets can be learned from, adapted and applied by anyone today.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another excellent book by Max Gunther that is finally being re-issued 18 mai 2011
Par Gabriel Torres - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Harriman House is doing an excellent job re-issuing all Max Gunther's books. Originally published in 1972, the book tells the story of 15 North-American multimillionaries of the time. The publisher printed a table at the first page listing the fortunes portrayed in the book and the amount corrected by inflation. This way, when the author says that John Doe has 100 million dollars, you know that this would be equal to 522 millions today. This is the level of the "poorest" guy portrayed in the book!

The stories are fantastic, and Gunther is an excellent storyteller, always trying to focus on what the person did differently from the "average guy." The nice thing about this book is that it is based on interviews the author conducted with the portrayed people. For the people he didn't interview in person, he decided to publish interviews done by other people that had this opportunity. Therefore, a few chapters are written by other journalists.

This is an excellent pick if you like to read sucess stories.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating characters 13 août 2012

You will want to know more about the fascinating characters portraied in this excellent book after you finished reading it. This was written in the 70's I believe, and that only enhances its entertaing and educational content.

This book was OK. I liked the stories, but felt that the author colored the stories a little bit too much with his own opinion of the rich, instead of just presenting the facts. If you look beyond that however, there are some good tips.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book and very motivational! 28 février 2014

The book was written in the 70's, but the stories and the principles they represent are still very valid today. The author tells the story of the very rich entrepreneurs of the last generations, and often discussed what exactly are the factors that can make one super rich.
From what the author described, these are the important factors:
1. Luck, or to be the right place at the right time. One can't control luck, but one can increase the opportunities by getting to know more people or be around the place of action.
2. the very rich are often compulsive workers. (This often result in divorces and unhealthy family relationships.)
3. the very rich are late boomers. They are almost always not those kids who were voted "most likely to succeed" in high school.

The author also have a very smooth style of writing, very comfortable to read. This is the first book I read by Max Gunther, I will certainly pick up his other books such as the "axiom" and "lucky".
