Publisher's Summary

"Making money is a knack, a knack that can be acquired. And if someone like me can become rich, then so can you - no matter what your present circumstances. Here is how I did it and what I learned along the way." So writes Felix Dennis, who believes that almost anyone of reasonable intelligence can become rich, given sufficient motivation and application. How To Get Rich is a distillation of his business wisdom. Primarily concerned with the step-by-step creation of wealth, it ruthlessly dissects the business failures and financial triumphs of "a South London lad who became rich virtually by accident".
Part manual, part memoir, part primer, this book is a template for those who are willing to stare down failure and transform their lives. Canny, infuriating, cynical, and generous by turns, How to Get Rich is an invaluable guide to "the surprisingly simple art of collecting money which already has your name on it".

A personal insight into the pursuit of wealth

This is a personal opinion on how the author, publishing mogul Felix Dennis made his money (approx £750m at the time of his death in 2014).

There are some interesting anecdotes and in truth some sound advice about certain topics but like many of these books. The author focusses on the overall creation of wealth and for many people, getting from £20m to £100m of wealth is not as interesting as making that first few million.

Generally this is a good listen (although the musical interludes between chapters is a little odd) but don't expect too much from this more than a story of how the author did it and at times you may be left feeling a little patronised. It is worth a listen though and I will at some point probably give it a second listen to pick up on the gems hidden amongst the prose!
