The Millionaire Next Door, a book co-authored by University
at Albany Marketing Professor William Danko, has been included in USA
Today's "Top 30 Business Books of 2001." The list is based on the newspaper's
best selling books from January through early November.
Written in 1996, The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets
of America's Wealthy, is a research-based book about wealth in America.
It identifies seven common denominators that appear again and again
among those who have accumulated wealth. For instance, many millionaires
shop for bargain cars, pay only a tiny fraction of their wealth in income
tax, raise children who are often unaware of their family's wealth until
they are adults and reject big-spending lifestyles.
The New York Times, Business Week, Publishers Weekly,
The Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times have
ranked it as a best seller.
