Table of Contents

This classic reveals how truly big money is made. It recounts the spectacular success stories of 15 crème de la crème of the self-made super-rich. Now, the wealthy are not just ordinary people, and the very, very rich are an even more special breed — and it was the desire to discover their mindset and approach that spurred Gunther's inquiry.

This book is terrific entertainment, for these stories are stories of ordinary human beings rising to stunning heights. Each is a man who took his material environment as he found it and conquered it absolutely. In a sense, then, these are fairy tales.

Which brings up the second good reason for reading this book: The lives of the very, very rich gathered here are highly instructive. Their secrets and methods can be learned from, adapted and applied by all those who themselves harbour dreams of supreme fortune.

"COME WITH ME NOW, ye seekers, and stand before this great golden door. In a while we will turn the jewelled key and go in. Step softly. Speak in whispers. We are about to enter the presence of Wealth . . ."
