** The Thin Green Line by Paul Sullivan


The  teeth-grinding subtitle of  The Thin Green Line: The Money Secrets of the Super Wealthy suggests this is a self-help book, which it is not, although I experienced some teeth grinding as the author mixes in his own search for wealth orthodoxy into the narrative, without much benefit, or so I thought.

That being said, this book is similar, in a rather less enlightening form, to The Millionaire Next Door, the classic study that showed that wealth is only loosely related to income, and greatly related to financial and indeed life habits. I did enjoy the coverage of how wealthy people invest in their children’s education, and sadly how they often fail to address entitlement issues, to disastrous results.
