Although older than the United States itself, The Way to Wealth is still very popular. It is handed out by major companies and financial institutions to friends, clients, and customers, and was the January 2004 selection of The Washington Post's Color of Money Book Club.
As Michelle Singletary, director of the club, wrote in a column about the book, "At just 30 pages, this pocket¿size book takes less than an hour to read but will give you a lifetime of financial wisdom - that is, if you're wise enough to follow the advice".
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Sort of weird. This is a version of Poor Richard. I had not realize it. It was not what I thought it was. A little out dated.
Was The Way to Wealth worth the listening time?
Not so much

A simple bit of a story, told in plain Olde English, stuffed with good old fashioned common sense! Bears repeating and sharing, especially with the youngsters in your life! Hail Poor Richard!
It was extremely informative, describing simple, money smart techniques that have been lost in recent years. Very simple and powerful book that everybody should read.
Would you listen to The Way to Wealth again? Why?
No. It's essentially just listening to affirmations and for me, that can be painful as I then struggle with just focusing on one that touched me at that moment.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The information, when you distill it down is really good. The way the narration is presented is bothersome. Very choppy and robotic, in my opinion.
What didn’t you like about Kent McKamy’s performance?
As I said, very robotic and choppy.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No extreme reactions one way or the other. Just disappointed in the presentation.
Any additional comments?
As my headline says, just read the book. It's short enough and broken down into manageable bites so that it's easy to ready and make part of your life.
