Richer, Wiser, Happier

by William Green


What makes a billionaire? Besides the money, that is. The billionaires in this book didn't start with billions. Many started with next to nothing and slowly, methodically, leveraged nothing into astronomical fortunes. So how's it done? Are these people a rare breed, or can their methods be replicated?

Through dozens of in-depth interviews with America's richest asset managers, veteran journalist William Green reveals how they made their fortunes, and how they keep making the decisions that earn them and their clients outrageous amounts of money.

As much mini-biography as finance how-to, this deeply-sourced book is a compelling glimpse into the habits, lifestyles, and personal principles that guide some of the richest people in the world. Most importantly, it's about how you can incorporate those elements into your own life too.
