'Making money is a knack, a knack that can be acquired. And if someone like me can become rich, then so can you - no matter what your present circumstances. Here is how I did it and what I learned along the way.' So writes Felix Dennis, who believes that almost anyone of reasonable intelligence can become rich, given sufficient motivation and application. "How To Get Rich" is a distillation of his business wisdom. Primarily concerned with the step-by-step creation of wealth, it ruthlessly dissects the business failures and financial triumphs of 'a South London lad who became rich virtually by accident'. Part manual, part memoir, part primer, this book is a template for those who are willing to stare down failure and transform their lives. Canny, infuriating, cynical and generous by turns, "How To Get Rich" is an invaluable guide to 'the surprisingly simple art of collecting money which already has your name on it'.
What the papers say:
"Compulsive and highly entertaining" Observer "Wise, fearlessly frank and truly inspirational ...

As good a guide to making it in the business as I have ever read" Sunday Telegraph "Absorbing, provocative and huge fun" The Times "Well-founded advice based on hard-won experience" Financial Times

The annual Sunday Times Rich List estimates that Felix Dennis is the 65th richest individual in the UK.

His other interests include planting trees and he divides his time between homes in Warwickshire, London, New York, Connecticut and the Caribbean island of Mustique.
