Stanley offers here his second best-selling work The Millionaire Mind, which spent over four months on the New York Times Best Seller list and rose to second position on that list.

Dr. Stanley also builds on his research from The Millionaire Next Door and takes us further into the psyche of the American millionaire.

Dr. Stanley takes a close look at the top one percent of households in America and tells us the motor behind the engine; what makes them tick. His findings on how these families reached such financial success are based on in-depth surveys and interviews with more than 1,300 millionaires.
