Millionaire women next door

I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed reading about women who are millionaires and how they spend their money. It is good to know that becoming a millionaire is possible for all women in all walks of life no matter what the circumstances. I gave this book to my daughter to use as a reference point.

Very good future ahead of me

I absolutely loved this book! When I originally read Stanley's Millionare Next Door, I was put off that all the data was regarding men (but that it is still a very good book). I was suprised to stumble on this book and am very glad that I did! Recently, before reading the book, I made the assumption that for women, money correlates with charity. Look at Susan Sarandan w/ the Heffer program and Oprah w/ her various charity beliefs...Awesome women who know how to give back to the world. I feel it in my bones that this book is one of the variables in my life to lead me to success. It has opened my eyes and confirmed my assumptions to obtain success. And has also provided me w/ many other aspects and details I found interesting. This is a definite book to have in your collection if you are serious about obtaining success. Not just monetary success but happiness w/in yourself and the community/world you live in.

Hopeful, helpful, and riveting book

If you're a woman who didn't quite see yourself in The Millionaire Next Door, there's hope. Women are different than male millionaires in several important ways. For example, the typical male millionaire has married once and remains married, but over half of female millionaires have been divorced. Women are also more generous than men. The book mainly talks about business owners becoming wealthy, but it also talks about alternatives to business ownership. Stanley profiles a star saleswoman, educators (a wealthier group than you realize), and stay-at-home women who act as managers of their "family office". He also discusses parenting your children so they can develop a millionaire mindset. Many situations are presented in this book, so you can probably find something that will apply to you. As for helpful advice, the author points out cautions women need to consider. Women need to watch out for the "Marginal Bob" worthless first husbands. Women also often provide continued financial support to their grown children and grandchildren. This "economic outpatient care" hurts both parents and children. I enjoyed reading this book. It was well written and thoroughly researched. I will buy more copies for graduation gifts.

Fascinating Study of Successful Women

We have long known that women and men approach both work and money differently. The nature of the differences, though, is not what most people expect. In fact, Thomas Stanley leads the book with an illustration of exactly this: a man is vociferously insisting that businesswomen are cold, obsessed, unfriendly, tyrannical, unmarried and even dangerous and, as a result, are not worthy of study.Stanley knows otherwise, though, and shows through exhaustive interviews and surveys that successful businesswomen have a great deal in common with their male counterparts in that they are next to impossible to define by qualitative measures alone. They are married and unmarried, mothers and not, formally educated and self-taught. One way they differ sharply from the male millionaires Stanley studied in a previous book is in their greater tendancy to allow family members to become "economic outpatients" - persons whose constant need for money is met by the successful person over whom they exercise emotional control.One of the greatest gifts that Stanley gives all women in this book is showing in detail and with great care that one need not be born with a silver spoon to be financially successful (in fact, having ample financial resources while growing up may hinder self-directed success). In fact, several of his cases are of women who were neglected and/or abused in the most horrible ways and still managed to look within themselves and create success. It is clear through this work that if a woman truly desires to be free of economic pressure, she can be so regardless of her background and upbringing.
