Rich Like Them

Rich Like Them by Ryan D'Agostino

This is a book that I just recently read. It explores a unique idea in trying to understand how people made their money. The author went to some of the United States richest neighborhoods , knocked on doors, and tried to interview the homeowners. He covered 19 towns in 11 states, knocking on 500 doors. Only 50 people would talk to him- that equals to only 10% of whom he tried to speak. So it was not an easy task to accomplish! Some of the cities covered were Westport,Connecticut, NYC,New York, Phoenix,Arizona, Silicon Valley,California, and Cleveland ,Ohio. The book prompts the question of Why Them? Most people are just like us- so why them? How did they do it?
I will add more to this post later!!
