This is a book about getting rich. It's different from any other book on the subject because Felix Dennis made himself rich. Very rich indeed. As a matter of fact, he is one of the richest self-made men in Britain. How to Get Rich doesn't pull any punches, and shows that the highway to riches is littered with pitfalls, heartbreak, and obstacles. But for those with the drive and determination to try, this book provides a witty and authoritative road map.

The Best Business Book

5 out of 5 stars

While some may find the title of the book a bit offputting as a general management book, if anyone wishes to succeed in business whether to be rich or just doing things better, this book is a must! He tells great stories about how the real business world works and how great people succeed in his organisations.

If you are into reading about Warren Buffett this is a valuable (in parts) listen. However it can get repetitive and as much information can be gained from more other interesting publications.

Even if you like or dislike Trump this is an interesting listen about conducting business in general and some good stories from the real estate scene in New York.

Barbarians at the Gate has been called one of the most influential business books of all time, the definitive account of the largest takeover in Wall Street history. Bryan Burrough's and John Helyer's account of the frenzy that overtook Wall Street in October and November of 1988 gives us not only a detailed look at financial operations at the highest levels but a richly textured social history of wealth in the twilight of the Reagan era.

Reads more like a fiction novel than a business book.

A case of history repeating itself. A good general cautionary tale for the business world!

It is very different to the other biographies from other business leaders. A bit comical on the presentation of the audiobook if you are looking for a serious business listen!

It is more promoting his tv career than a biography. Some useful advice but not more than you can get elsewhere. Do not expect a narrative of his career.
