"A leading expert on the affluent reveals the real way to build wealth. With well over two million of his books sold, and huge praise from many media outlets, Dr. Thomas J. Stanley is a recognized and highly respected authority on the wealthy, their behavior, and their thinking. Now, in Stop Acting Rich, he details how the less affluent have fallen into the elite luxury brand trap that keeps them from truly acquiring wealth and details how to get out of it by emulating the working rich as opposed to the super elite. A defensive strategy for tough times, Stop Acting Rich will show you how to live like Warren Buffett-a rich, happy life-through accumulating more wealth and using it to achieve the type of financial freedom that will create true happiness and fulfillment. Puts wealth in perspective and shows you how to live rich without spending more. Details why we spend lavishly and how to stop this destructive cycle. Discusses how being "rich" means more than just big houses and luxury cars. Other titles by Stanley: The Millionaire Mind and The Millionaire Next Door. It's time to understand why we buy what we buy, so that we can start accumulating, rather than depleting, wealth. Stop Acting Rich shows you exactly what it takes to achieve this elusive goal"--Provided by publisher.

The overall message of the book is well-communicated: few people have the ability to both live lavishly and have lots of wealth. People with money will have to do one or the other, most of the time. And Tom Stanley wants you to live below your means and build wealth, not spend yourself into endless stress, trying to look richer than you are.

That said, I got reeeeeeeeeeally tired of stats on vodka and suits and cars. Some of these chapters could have been half their length and communicated just as much information. Oh well.
