I had firm beliefs on the following, before I started reading this book

  • Millionaires and rich people own top branded clothes, watches, cars and luxury homes
  • They look attractive, and could be spotted out easily by their looks
  • They are “Spendthrifts”, and never care about money
  • They own accounts in Swiss banks, and hold credit cards from top notch banks

And you know what? Millionaires are quite the opposite. Read the book, you’ll be surprised!
