2. The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas Stanley and William Danko
Our traits define us and millionaires, too, share a set of common traits. The Millionaire Next Door identifies seven key common traits that show up repeatedly among those who have accumulated wealth.

Your day truly begins when you get home from work. These are the others which define us, that define our financial freedom.
