About this deal

If you dare to do something different or to create large amounts of wealth, people will criticize you and tell you how you will fail at every corner. A persistent person is convinced that he or she has been right all along, and that the proof lies just around the corner. Dennis' book will, if read with attention, do a great deal to point out all those mistakes that a live wire will make (and will probably make anyway because entrepreneurs tend not to listen to their Dads) long before they have to be made. This holds true even if talent is placed in the driver’s seat of a small division within an existing operation. The biggest rewards go not to those individuals who came up with the idea, nor to those individuals who built the empire.

There is absolutely nothing more likely to dampen the prospects of becoming rich than a nice, fat, regular salary check. The problem is that we create an image of ourselves in our childhood and youth (often at the urging of parents, siblings or friends), and subsequently attempt to graft reality onto this image. That’s why so many rich people end up with rocky marriages, regrets about spending so little time with their children, and the loss of important friendships. They will tell you, if you listen, about the impossibility (not the foolishness) of trying to make yourself wealthy.While it sounds like one of those "get rich quick" books that often make it to the top of bestseller lists, "How to Get Rich" by Felix Dennis is the real thing. This is a book about entrepreneurship, as told by someone who has been wildly successful in that arena. Just the same, it’s much easier to get rich in a growing industry flush with new cash than it is to get rich in a shrinking one on its way out.

There are a few daft pages notably those that lay into Steve Jobs, which, valid as the criticism is, don't fit the book as Jobs for all his mistakes is nine times richer than the author and seven years younger.

Starting a business with the aim to make millions will often mean you’ll be shamefully grovelling for capital early on. Felix Dennis is an eccentric, a character, a legend in his own wine-fueled lunchtime, and let's be thankful for it.
