    How do the rich get rich? An updated edition of the “remarkable” New York Times bestseller, based on two decades of research (The Washington Post).   Most of the truly wealthy in the United States don’t live in Beverly Hills or on Park Avenue. They live next door.   America’s wealthy seldom get that way through an inheritance or an advanced degree. They bargain-shop for used cars, raise children who don’t realize how rich their families are, and reject a lifestyle of flashy exhibitionism and competitive spending. In fact, the glamorous people many of us think of as “rich” are actually a tiny minority of America’s truly wealthy citizens—and behave quite differently than the majority.   At the time of its first publication, The Millionaire Next Door was a groundbreaking examination of America’s rich—exposing for the first time the seven common qualities that appear over and over among this exclusive demographic. This edition includes a new foreword by Dr. Thomas J. Stanley—updating the original content in the context of the financial crash and the twenty-first century.   “Their surprising results reveal fundamental qualities of this group that are diametrically opposed to today’s earn-and-consume culture.” —Library Journal

    Nervous to Approach and Talk to Women 1-on-1? Wipe Your Tears — The Final Solution is Here...If anyone had told me I'd be amazing and confident in getting women some years ago, I wouldn't believe. I have been through what you're going through. I was scared to approach and talk to the women I liked.
     
    After so much frustration, I decided enough was enough—just the same way you have finally decided and ended up here, which is the best place to discover all the things dating gurus will never tell you about approaching beautiful women the right way.
     
    In Chapter 1, WWWWW, we gave a list of words that'll appear as we learn the craft of approaching a woman. We discussed the only two types of ways to woo her which are ID (In-Direct opener) and DO (Direct Opener), and how they're applied with examples.
     
    We looked into nervousness. We looked into the Five WWWWWs of starting a conversation with a woman which are: Where, When, Why, What, & Which. And we finally added extra examples of DO and ID.
     
    In Chapter 2, Operation Rejection, shortened as ORej. We talked on approaching women while having rejection as your most important outcome. If you're not rejected, it's a failure.
     
    Being rejected is a success. We looked into 7 different "How Tos" which are: how to woo a seated girl (in any settings); how to woo in class, school, gym centers, gatherings, events and parties; how to woo at the workplace or in an office; how to woo a girl who makes you nervous; how to woo a stubborn girl; how to woo a girl at the market or mall, and how to woo a girl on the queue (any queue) with some examples for each.
     
    In Chapter 3, ON/OFF, we discussed how Push and Pull (PP) works with some examples. We talked on the types of push and pull. We also looked into things you'll have or be that'll make you never to be nervous around girls. We gave an example on building rapport with Sad Anchor and other explanations.
     
    In Chapter 4, look inside to see what it's all about.
     
    In Chapter 5, Accidental Accusation, we talked on how to accuse a girl to start a conversation. This technique gets a woman hooked with curiosity. We looked into psychological compliments and humor with some examples of how they work.
     
    We briefly discussed how to treat a woman and how to book a date. I told some personal stories and gave some examples. We also discussed one of the keys to dating. We talked about flaking and how to handle women's insult and convert them to compliments.
     
    In Chapter 6, Legends' Magic. This is one of the most important chapters, because we gave some brief explanations on other things and finally looked into the magic formula to come up with your personal conversations.
     
    We discussed the mighty EARTH formulas. The three types and gave an example of each. We have iEarth, EARTH, and EARTHics.
     
    In Chapter 7, Kidding, we gave a list of childish and stupid pick-up lines which will not make sense to men, but women will laugh when they hear some of them. We gave an example on iSHY wooing/chatting technique.
     
    In Chapter 8, Mindset. We talked on how you should not start a conversation from the beginning, but always from the middle. We talked on how to woo a lady you haven't seen before. We equally discussed how to use arrogance and humor to woo a lady. We discussed a good-bad boy and a typical bad boy and much more
     
    Finally, we revealed something that’ll FOREVER change your life in the dating game and stay ahead of other men with picture illustrations. A secret you can’t find anywhere online or offline.
