Felix Dennis is an expert at proving people wrong. Starting as a college dropout with no family money, he created a publishing empire, foundedMaxim magazine, made himself one of the richest people in the UK, and had a blast in the process.

How to Get Rich is different from any other book on the subject because Dennis isn't selling snake oil, investment tips, or motivational claptrap. He merely wants to help people embrace entrepreneurship, and to share lessons he learned the hard way. He reveals, for example, why a regular paycheck is like crack cocaine; why great ideas are vastly overrated; and why "ownership isn't the important thing, it's the only thing."

This book is refreshingly different from other "get rich" books. It is written by someone who has actually done it, not be someone who aspires to become rich by selling his book(s). Huge difference!

Uncle Felix pulls no punches in telling you how to succeed as an entrepreneur. Along the way he also makes you laugh and he makes you think. Well done!
