Abstract:

An outspoken entrepreneurial dynamo reveals the secrets behind his self-made fortune. Starting as a college dropout with no family money, Felix Dennis made himself the sixty-fifth richest individual in the U.K. And had a blast in the process. How to Get Rich, his #1 British bestseller, is different from any other book on the subject because Dennis isn't selling snake oil, investment tips, or motivational claptrap. Having already made his fortune, he merely wants to help readers embrace entrepreneurship--and learn from his successes and failures. Dennis reveals, for example, why a regular paycheck is like crack cocaine; why being young, penniless, and inexperienced is a fine combination; why great ideas are vastly overrated; and why "ownership isn't the important thing, it's the only thing."
