Thomas J. Stanley, Ph. D., author of many analytical books on the lifestyles and habits of the wealthy in America, including The Millionaire Next Door and The Millionaire Mind, has now provided this most superb insight into the Millionaire Women Next Door. It provides a voyeuristic view into what makes the female millionaire psyche: her family of origin, education, failures, and performance compared to her male peers, complete with charts and graphs and indices. Of his hundreds of in-depth surveys and extensive IRS data, he found striking patterns among those women who became millionaires, who as a group are frugal wives and mothers, generous to those in need, debt-free, self-motivated, investors not only in their own businesses but also in the stock market and in commercial real estate, with a high degree of perseverance in the face of criticism and trials. This compilation inspires not only wise financial planning, but also the qualities of integrity and even faith needed to become Millionaire Women Next Door.
