LoveReading View on How to Get Rich

This is much more than a business textbook. In fact, the only thing that lets it down is its title because this book does so much more than it says on the tin. It is not just a business manual of “How to Get Rich” but a unique and compelling insight into Felix Dennis himself, his extraordinary life story and his personal path to fame and fortune. The book is enlivened by poems from the highly literate author himself as well as his favourite sayings and quotations from the literary world. There are also delightful human references that range from Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys (who Felix Dennis employed) to Winston Churchill (who he didn't). So don’t be put off by the title - but do pick up and read this fascinating and engrossing philisophical story.

How to Get Rich Synopsis

'Making money is a knack, a knack that can be acquired. And if someone like me can become rich, then so can you - no matter what your present circumstances. Here is how I did it and what I learned along the way.' So writes Felix Dennis, who believes that almost anyone of reasonable intelligence can become rich, given sufficient motivation and application.


How To Get Rich is a distillation of his business wisdom. Primarily concerned with the step-by-step creation of wealth, it ruthlessly dissects the business failures and financial triumphs of 'a South London lad who became rich virtually by accident'. Part manual, part memoir, part primer, this book is a template for those who are willing to stare down failure and transform their lives.

Canny, infuriating, cynical and generous by turns, How To Get Rich is an invaluable guide to 'the surprisingly simple art of collecting money which already has your name on it'.
