Speaking as a man who got rich, Felix Dennis offers an irreverent, occasionally bawdy guide to help you decide whether you should seek wealth and how to go about it. Dennis began as an “unemployed, long-haired South London lad who called himself a publisher” and became one of the richest men in Great Britain. He thinks the world needs an “anti–self-help book” about the difficulties of becoming wealthy. He explores misconceptions about the process of seeking riches and the challenges people face at different points in their lives if they decide to jettison prudence and work on amassing a fortune. Dennis cheerfully shares his insights into getting rich in great detail. While never giving financial advice, getAbstract recommends his unique viewpoint to anyone who likes to read success stories, whether or not they help you become successful.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to decide whether you should seek wealth, and
- How to hike your odds of becoming and staying rich.

11 months ago50% of the book is about why you should not try to become rich - funny to see a book summary summarizing only the tips on how to get rich :-D
