The Ten Roads to Riches: The Ways the Wealthy Got There (And How You Can Too!)
by Ken Fisher

Book Review by Richard L. Weaver II, PhD.

Ken Fisher’s 228-page book, The Ten Roads to Riches: The Ways the Wealthy Got There (And How You Can Too!), covers the subjects (in separate chapters): 1) Start your own business, 2) Become a CEO, 3) Become a "ride-along" to a successful CEO, 4) Become rich and famous, 5) Marry into wealth, 6) Become a plaintiff attorney, 7) Use other people's money, 8) Invent something, 9) Real estate, 10) Save and live frugally. For most people, of course, the final chapter will have the most relevance. Fisher is a self-made billionaire, and helps those wanting to start a business, own real estate, invest wisely, or marry very, very well (from the front jacket). The book is a fun, fast read (It takes about a day or two.) It is full of examples, includes 14 pages of high-quality notes, offers a great deal of sage advice, and is written in a simple (jargonless) manner that is engaging. I highly recommend this book.


Through our reading, researching, and writing, And Then Some Publishing (and our extended family of readers) mine volumes of books representing a wide variety of tastes. We use the books in our writing, test and try suggested techniques, and we read for enjoyment as well. We wouldn't spend the time reviewing the books if we didn't get something out of it.
