Short Synopsis
Ryan D'Agostino knocks on 500 doors in America's wealthiest neighborhoods to learn the secrets of financial success.

Full Synopsis
Ryan D'Agostino wanted to know how the extremely wealthy in America got that way. So he asked. Knocking on 500 doors in twenty neighborhoods in the most affluent ZIP codes in America, D'Agostino met with fifty regular (but very rich) men and women who welcomed him in and shared some of their most difficult financial decisions, toughest setbacks, greatest strategies, most triumphant moments, and deepest insights into what it means to have money. D'Agostino covers a range of businesses, from real estate, flower selling, and credit card processing to art dealing, advertising, and even bookselling, gleaning lessons from which everyone can benefit.

In Rich Like Them, D'Agostino weaves together what he learned and organizes the text with maxims for achieving wealth, including "Never let pride get in the way of profit" and "When you fail miserably, rejoice." Filled with inspiring stories and straight-up advice, Rich Like Them is a lively and practical get-rich guide that any reader can follow.

"Readers will get a certain voyeuristic pleasure in peering into some of America's richest homes, and they may pick up some useful tips for personal financial success." ---Library Journal

"Pay close enough attention to the wisdom in Ryan D'Agostino's fun, fast-paced book and the door he knocks on next time around may be yours." ---Jean Chatzky, author of Make Money, Not Excuses

"Rich Like Them not only proves wealth is within the grasp of us all, it also provides a blueprint for how you can make it a reality." ---Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., author of Nice Girls Don't Get Rich
