The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy is a 1996 book by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko. This book is a compilation of research done by the two authors in the profiles of ‘millionaires‘. The authors compare the behavior of those they call UAWs and those who are PAWs.
The bestselling The Millionaire Next Door identifies seven common traits that show up again and again among those who have accumulated wealth. Most of the truly wealthy in this country don’t live in Beverly Hills or on Park Avenue-they live next door. This new edition, the first since 1998, includes a new foreword for the twenty-first century by Dr. Thomas J. Stanley.
