Publisher's Summary

Everywhere we turn, we hear negative financial news - that the American Dream is dead or that the little man can’t get ahead. Our culture feeds us the lie that it’s impossible to become a millionaire in America today, but it’s time you heard the truth.

In his newest book, Everyday Millionaires: How Ordinary People Built Extraordinary Wealth - and How You Can Too, Chris Hogan destroys millionaire myths that are keeping everyday people from achieving financial independence. Chris and the Ramsey research team surveyed over 10,000 US millionaires, discovering how these high-net-worth people reached their financial status. And the formula might surprise you.

Millionaire status doesn’t require inheriting a bunch of money or having a high-paying job. No. The path to becoming a millionaire is paved with more-ordinary tools - tools that you either already have or that you can learn. If you thought you could never become a millionaire, think again. Listen and learn from over 10,000 everyday millionaires who have done it and believe it’s possible for you too.

Good message

The message in this book is very good. Book started off a bit slow and a bit repetitive and the first part could have been condensed down a bit

repeatatition

I will struggle to finish this. chris just repeats himself so often I had to check if I was listening to the same chapter.
this is not even 101 in finance, it is something way below this.

Disappointed

Not really any "new" info or ideas. I listened to the radio show for a couple of months and this is just the exact same thing... You can hear for free on the radio show. I love Ramsey solutions but this book was a waste of time.

Worste book I have listened to yet

This is my second Chris Hogan book thus far and neither have impressed me. Expecting this book to be as good as The Millionaire Next Door or Total Money Make Over, I was greatly disappointed. It seems like Chris and his staff wrote this book in portions and then jammed it together because the content is continually redundant and the data from the "10,000" people interviewed is repeated over and over. With all of that data, an opportunity was truly missed here. In the audio book taping, there are areas early in n the book where sentences were repeated twice. Seems to be very poor editing. The other annoyance is that some of the stories are directly repeated from How to Retire Inspired. Not sure I will buy from this author in n the future...

good book but wish it explained more how...

recap - take advantage of company 401k, avoid credit card debt at all cost (trust me) live below your means, put money into ira account, save save save, and in 20 to 40 years youre a millionaire.

Please don't expect much

I am not opposed to Dave Ramsey and his life-changing plan, especially as he motivates one to change their attitude. That being said, this book is extremely lacking. Based on the description I anticipated and was looking forward to a new take on "The Millionaire Next Door" or "The Millionaire Mind" (which Hogan actually references in this book). Unfortunately this book is nowhere close, lacks substance, repeats many concepts already stated in previous Hogan and Ramsey books, and then seems unapologetic about the constant Ramsey Solution plugs. Having read both of Dr. Stanley's books, I would rate them as a 10 and this book as a 2. The useful concepts in this book can be summarized as changing one's attitude, the tortoise and the hare, and is frankly better suited as a 4 minute blog than a multi-hour book. The stories of everyday millionaires are thin, the data is lacking, and the chapters all feel the same. Sorry, Chris.

Lacking substance

The book had very little data and instead was mostly a 6.5 hr pep talk on the basics of budgeting. If 10,000 millionaires were part of the sample there should have been a lot more substance in the book. Without that “research” being a consistent point of reference my expectations would have been more along the lines of a simple motivational book. Based on how the book was positioned I expected something closer to Millionaire Next Door which changed the paradigm of the everyday millionaire and how they live life. That book and the Stanley’s proceeding books was rich with content...pun intended. Overall, I feel like this book should have been a great podcast, but not a book. There are some great reviews so I know and hope this book will have a positive impact on many...just didn’t resonate with me.

Too much Fluff

I came from Dave Ramsey's podcast and was excited to read this book. I enjoy hearing the stories of these people, how they overcame obstacles, and used different techniques to acquire wealth. Unfortunately, this book did not dive into these stories. It was mostly fluff about mindset and basic budgeting. If you are familiar with Dave Ramsey and even Chris Hogans work, this book is going to be a drag. If you are new to this stuff then it might help you.

Boring

This book was so boring and not educational at all. I would suggest reading Dave Ramsey’s total money makeover instead.

Regurgitation of the show

Hyped as a scientific study of 10,000 millionaires...but reads as a pep talk. It is the same topics covered on the radio show with a random study result tucked into support the story. Was hoping to get a 2018 version of The Millionaire Next Door but it did not deliver.

Not what I expected...

I didn't find this information very valuable. If you already listen to Dave Ramsey or Chris Hogan then there is no point in reading this book. Chris does bring a positive outlook to retirement planning but this book just regurgitates information that we have all heard before.

Inspiration for the everyday person

Happy Chris Hogan narrated this. Great stories & game plan that anyone can follow. I recommend this as a way to encourage anyone to think bigger for themselves.
