When Richard Paul Evans was twelve his father a building contractor shattered both his legs. com User, January 29, 2007. The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealth was a book that I thoroughly enjoyed.

com User, January 29, 2007. Sure it had a lot of common sense information, but it was very informative. Even so, you'd think handling money would be more common sense than what it is, but we still screw up.

At that difficult time young Evans was introduced to a kind multimillionaire who taught him the five secrets of wealth.

In his signature motivational voice, Evans interweaves those influential lessons with personal stories from everyday people. He explains that money should not be the preoccupation of our lives. Rather, if we follow the five principles, we will be free to focus on God, family, and relationships -- the true nourishments of life.

First, some wisdom from Citizen Kane:

"Well, it's no trick to make a lot of money... if what you want to do is make a lot of money."

So I think we are all clear that making money is an easy thing. Barring ill health, or other encroachments of "outrageous fortune," the key is discipline. And discipline is key to discipleship--be it religious, academic, or financial.

So what are the rules of the order? Evans sees five:

1. LESSON ONE - Decide to Be Wealthy
2. LESSON TWO - Take Responsibility for Your Money
3. LESSON THREE - Keep a Portion of Everything You Earn
4. LESSON FOUR - Win in the Margins
(a) Millionaire Mindset #1: The millionaire mentality carefully considers each expenditure. Ask, "Can you do better?"
i. Is it really necessary, or is it possible to get the same personal effect without using money or using less of it?
ii. Is this expenditure contributing t my wealth or taking from it?
iii. Is this an impulse purchase or a planned purchase?
(b) Millionaire Mindset #2: The millionaire mentality believes that freedom and power are better than momentary pleasure.
(c) Millionaire Mindset #3: The millionaire mentality does not equate spending with happiness.
(d) Millionaire Mindset #4: The millionaire mentality protects the nest egg.
5. LESSON FIVE - Give Back

Lesson 5, give back, obliterates many of this book's criticisms. The sarcasms about RPE seeing money being the end-all of life is just that -a mindless sarcasm. After all, RPE does have The Christmas Box charity. So stingy he is not.

And, duh George, this book is about finances, so of course it will focus on money. This is like criticizing your geometry text-book for focusing on Euclid and Pythagoras, but not Betty Crocker or James Madison.

RPE case, therefore, is for sound and sane stewardship. We all have money, to one degree or another. But how well are we managing this gift and stewardship? Are we doing the best we can? And how can we do better? That is what this book is about.

I think "5 Lessons" has several strengths. One, RPE is obviously rich, so he knows what he is talking about. You ever get good money advice from a poor person? Ahem!

Two, the book is readable. That comes from his other job.

Three, he is able to distill things to five points. Now he cheats on Lesson Four, talking about the four mindsets. This makes 9 habits of highly prosperous people. But you notice that the four mindsets are rephrases of the same concept--be thrifty.

(For further information on marginal thinking, I recommend Common Sense Economics: What Everyone Should Know About Wealth and Prosperity, p. 10ff.)

Of course the principles seem commonplace, even shopworn. But that is because economic laws are constant, being based on mathematics. Setting aside savings is as sound a principle as 1+1=2.

But the book's greatest strength is Richard Paul Evans himself. He is always looking for a way to make a buck--which means, providing a good or a service that makes someone happy. In college, he got a secondhand cooler, and sold pop to fellow construction workers. They were happy to pay him.

And that is the crucial millionaire mindset: what can you do that will make people happy?

Post Script:

Here are other financial books I use and review yearly:

2. The Richest Man in Babylon.

3. The Dave Ramsey Suite: Financial Peace Revisited,The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness,More than Enough: The Ten Keys to Changing Your Financial Destiny

4. The Adam Smith Suite: Theory of Moral Sentiments and Wealth of Nations.

5. The Tomas Sowell Suite:Basic Economics 4th Ed: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy and Applied Economics: Thinking Beyond Stage One

6. Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money.

The simplicity of this message and its principles may make its readers dismiss the truths found herein.

Don't dismiss the 5 simple lessons taught. They are the cornerstones to financial freedom. Saving if you are not a saver is difficult. But nothing worth doing ever came without a price.

In order to become what you are not (wealthy), you must learn do things differently with your money (save). This is the only way to build wealth. You will never win it!

Lesson 1: Decide to Be Wealthy
Lesson 2: Take Responsibility of Your Money
Lesson 3: Keep a Portion of Everything You Earn
Lesson 4: Win in the Margins
Lesson 5: Give Back

Search the Internet for an outline of these lessons.

Pretty simplistic view on way to save money. This is not a "get rich" book, it talks about how to be more frugal with your money and have a better attitude about what wealth is.

I love this book and have bought it for several people now. By using the 5 lessons, we saved two hours of plumber's fees (as an example) and we have a separate account where we can watch our wealth grow. Thanks Richard!

This book is great for helping one with their finances, I wished I had read it years ago.
I have been recommending it to everyone I know and I even tell them I got it from Amazon.
I love Amazon as I can get items cheaper here than in the stores. It is now my favorite site.
Everything I have bought from them I have loved. Rather than mention each one, I will say
I have not been disappointed at all. I do have some favorites over others per games.

I would recommend this to anyone. Common sense advice about life from someone successful. It doesn't have anything earth shattering but worth a good read. Favorite story from this book was the part about asking someone, "Is that the best you can do?" These cheap words cost you nothing but can be very advantageous when dealing with others. I purchased a home after reading this book and did the same when dealing with this purchase. Worked out and saved us over 5k.

Good book, recommended.

This book was recommended to me by my son who is college and it was worth every minute I spent reading it.

My husband and I have 5 children, 3 of whom are grown, but we have struggled financially since day 1, starting out in college, having 3 premature babies in a row, making bad financial choices.

I feel like with this book I can finally 'get a grip' and start saving for good things in life. I can start saving so we can do more to help others.

I found the book to be very focused on doing good with the 'wealth' you accumulate. It was not a self-centered, let's get rich quick plan, but one that will help you get your life in balance so you can do good in this world in more ways, in the ways that require finances.

I have read it once and plan to re-read it- marking key passages and taking more notes in the margins. The print out forms are invaluable!
After I read my copy, I decided to purchase this for my nephews, my young teenage employees. These simple lessons teach how to become a millionaire doing simple steps. The younger you are when you start the better although its never too late. This is a real easy read. Get and you will want to buy it for everyone that you know.
