Everyday Millionaires: How Ordinary People Built Extraordinary Wealth–And How You Can Too by Chris Hogan

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Interesting ideas and principles but I felt it to be incredibly boring. I read the first chapter, skimmed, and read the last chapter, nothing relevant or insightful was added to my thoughts. This book was gifted to me by my parents when it was first published and I was just recently reunited with it. Neither then or now, it was not a book I could get into. Others may certainly enjoy this more than me and I think those looking for some insight into what it takes to build financial wealth from a more disciplined approach will get something out of it.

The Story
Ugh. The objective was there but the personal examples were too frequent and exhaustive in themselves. It became a slog to read even when I was skimming.

I liked the perspective, but the whole book could have been summed up in a 10-page pocket guide.

One of those books where you read the first and last page and can accurately guess everything in the middle and still not take away much of anything new.

Too much ramble for my taste. Some people love lots of personal stories in this way, me, I just want to get to the point when it comes to these types of financial advice-giving books.

The Writing
I liked the casual conversational approach. However it became much more length and over-emphasis about a small number of topics and an indulgence in the details.

The personal stories themselves were not told in a dynamic way. It was too inside itself with too much personal observation that I didn’t find relatable or interesting.

Sentence structure had one idea as the main point, then a rewording of the same idea, and then a rewording again all within the same paragraph. Could have been edited down for more punch, more transformative conceptualization, and a much less repetitive string of either last minute additions or overly ruminative thoughts.

Maybe as an audiobook it would have been more palatable?
