I believe that by now everyone has heard of the amazing bestseller The Millionaire Next Door. Stop Acting Rich: ...And Start Living Like A Real Millionaire by Thomas J. Stanley takes what we learned in The Millionaire Next Door and goes a step further.
When I was growing up back in the 1970s in South Carolina, we had what we called ten cent millionaires. These were people who wanted to look like they had money but did not.
Stop Acting Rich tells us about these ten cent millionaires. The author refers to a Texas term many of us know as “All hat, no cattle”. Stanley refers to it as “Big Hat, No Cattle.” No worries, they both mean the same thing.
We learn from Stanley about how that millionaire we know might really be more in debt than anyone else we know. That guy we know who drives a station wagon filled with hay with no doors at all might very well be much more wealthy than we could possibly dream.
This book is very well-written, extremely well-researched and incredibly interesting. We give it all five stars. If you want to someday be very wealthy, you owe it to yourself to read this book. If you want to LOOK very wealthy, you may still want to read Stop Acting Rich.
