Everyone wants to be rich (well, most everyone). Ken Fisher explains ten different ways of getting there in his 2008 book, The Ten Roads to Riches. For example, people can go the old-fashioned, tried-and-true route and save every penny. Or they can go the super fast (and super lucky) route and win the lottery. A fast-paced read with many entertaining examples, The Ten Roads to Riches outlines each road, what it takes to get there and the possible benefits and pitfalls of each.
Why ten roads? Ken Fisher explains: "It's just the observation of this roads scholar from studying wealthy people all my 36-year investment career. I've got over 25,000 wealthy clients I’ve studied carefully--some for decades. As a 24-year Forbes columnist I've studied and written about the annual Forbes 400 list of richest Americans for decades--and been on it and the Forbes global billionaire list myself since 2005--and know people on both lists in and out of America, and interacted with many more very wealthy people. From all my observation, I can tell you they all fit into ten basic categories."
