The Education of Millionaires: It’s Not What You Think and It’s Not Too Late
by Michael Ellsberg
From young, we’ve been told that if we study hard, get into a good college and graduate with excellent grades, we’re set for a life of success. But when that’s all done, there’s no textbook to tell us exactly what to do. Ellsberg reveals that good grades and degrees from Ivy League schools don’t necessarily maketh the man. With interviews and stories on some of the most successful individuals of our time—all who built their fame and fortune without college degrees—the book is an interesting and educating read for anyone who wants to find success—regardless of whether you’re a college dropout or an Oxford graduate.
