BOOK REVIEW--THE RICHEST MAN IN TOWN --The Twelve Commandments of Wealth by W. Randall Jones

You may not really care who is the richest man in your town. But if you are like most people, you are a little curious about just who he might be. You may not discover who that person is in your town by reading The Richest Man In Town but you can discover who that man is in one hundred towns by reading this interesting book.

We are all familiar with the warnings about the love of money. Well this is not a book about loving money. This is a book about successful people and how they are not so different from one another.They all share many of the same traits and follow what the author calls the Twelve Commandments of Wealth: stay hungry (even when you're successful)...you really do learn more from failing than you may think...absolutely be your own boss, the sooner the better...understand that selling is the key to success...where you live doesn't matter...never retire, and other, more surprising revelations.

I found this book to be practical, unique, and inspiring. It lets you look inside the living rooms of dozens of America's most successful people. If you are a people person and interested in what "makes them tick" then you will love this book. It is filled with many quotes that will motivate and inspire you to be the best you can be.

Every town has one--the richest man or woman, that is. I am curious by nature and when I picked up this book I wanted to know if it said anything about the richest man in Scottsdale, Arizona. It does. I smiled. I was pleased. But I was also interested in the stories behind all the other successful people in the other ninety-nine towns. I think you will be too.

I always thought "wealth" was kind of like Happiness-- It is what we make of a situation! The glass is half full or half empty so to speak! Wonder if the book is kind of like books on making your own happiness!
