The Maui Millionaires: Discover the Secrets Behind the World's Most Exclusive Wealth Retreat and Become Financially Free

David Finkel, Author, Diane Kennedy, Author . Wiley $24.95 (264p) ISBN 978-0-470-04537-4

Being invited into a secret gathering of millionaires in Maui is intriguing, yet as investment experts David Finkel (The Real Estate Fast Track ) and Diane Kennedy (Loopholes of the Rich ) point out, distinguishing millionaires as an elite group is the first barrier to be broken down. After challenging readers to question their beliefs and limitations about money (or "upgrade your wealth operating system" as they put it), the authors move on to their "25 keys to dreaming big," including instructions on how to build a group of mentors who will help make your dreams come true. Charitable giving and strategies for leaving a legacy round out the final chapters. While most of these ideas won't be new to self-help readers or Oprah fans, those who haven't considered the impact of negative childhood lessons about money or current limitations to dreaming bigger may find the book fairly insightful. For those who have encountered these ideas before but haven't implemented them, the exercises and suggestions provide a concrete call to action. Until readers have built enough wealth to attend the actual Maui Millionaire event (priced at $30,000), this book—and its frequently referenced online tools——provide a decent insight into millionaire thinking.
