The authors focus a lot of the book on the misconceptions the super rich "suffer" in America, and delve into the origins of their vast wealth and their habits. If you've read "the millionaire next door" then you're gonna find this book to be somewhat related.
I wasn't a big fan of the book because I was looking for insight & tips & advice on how to become wealthy & the book was thin in that area. The book is mainly worth reading if you are just interested in how wealthy live such as their lifestyle. It's thin on how to accumulate wealth.

Interesting read. It changed my views on small businesses

We all have our bias.
Informative and useful book for anyone marketing to the rich.
