An outspoken entrepreneurial dynamo reveals the secrets behind his self-made fortune

Starting as a college dropout with no family money, Felix Dennis made himself the sixty-fifth richest individual in the U.K. And had a blast in the process.

How to Get Rich, his #1 British bestseller, is different from any other book on the subject because Dennis isnÂ't selling snake oil, investment tips, or motivational claptrap. Having already made his fortune, he merely wants to help readers embrace entrepreneurship—and learn from his successes and failures.

Dennis reveals, for example, why a regular paycheck is like crack cocaine; why being young, penniless, and inexperienced is a fine combination; why great ideas are vastly overrated; and why “ownership isnÂ't the important thing, itÂ's the only thing.”

Part naked memoir, part contrarian manual, this book is invaluable for anyone willing to stare down failure and take a chance on not just getting rich, but very rich indeed!
