How to be rich j. PREFACE By J. vi. PART ONE: Becoming a Millionaire How I Made My First Billion. Little if any attention was being paid to the very important question of how to be rich, how to discharge the responsibilities created by wealth even while constructively enjoying the privileges and prerogatives conferred by it. After all, "richness" is at least as much a matter of character, of philosophy, outlook and attitude, as it is of money. The "millionaire mentality" is not-and in this day and age, cannot be-merely an accumulative mentality.

Early on, Getty asserts that being "rich" is not a number, but truly a state of mind. In his view, there is no magic potion, mantra or affirmation that will garner you more goodies. If you want money, get out and work for it. If you want to be rich you must work for yourself. And once you hire people, even though you bear all responsibility for what happens, encourage your competent employees to think and act as if they are running their own company. Getty got rich because he understood the fundamentals of economics, thanks to his parents.

I have to admit, I never heard from Getty until I went to see the Getty Museum and Villa in Los Angeles.
I was so impressed by those two establishment and what they offer to the public for FREE, which was mind blowing to me.
After my visit I wanted to know who that man is that contributed to much to the community and found this book.
The print is quite small but that is the only bad thing about this book.
The content has many practical tips and wisdom, which still applies even though it was written about 30/40 years ago?
Yes, sound basic fundamentals for business or life never goes out of style :)
This book has become one of the stable that I read very often on a regular basis.
As the late Jim Rohn taught, it's essential to build your library, which I have been doing on an ongoing basis.
Repetition is the first step of learning!

This is a true classic in my opinion on not merely how to get rich but how to be rich as the title suggests.Mr.Getty espouses the inherent believe or rather conviction that wealth is far greater than what price a person put's upon himself or the principles that govern this thought but that as a man values himself is the ultimate litmus of his true worth.

if you want a great playbook on how to operate in the stock market, this is your book. Just ignore the tone and bravado with which it is written, and stick to the content. It is golden, and a great place to start.

Good read. I like that he gives you real situations that demonstrated his advice in practice.

216 pages in a 4x7 book? If you have a microscope, it's a great read

This book was written quite some time ago and it's easy to see how doing business today has changed. However, putting that aside, the processes J. Paul Getty used can still be used very effectively today. He describes how he and his father started working together, and how his businesses and fortune took off from there. He talks about the importance of staying personally in touch with those who worked for him (he literally worked right next to them) and how it helped those who worked for him make the shift from feeling they were his "employees" to feeling they had part ownership in the company - giving it their best ideas and collaboration. He speaks of their sharing of thoughts with him, discussions that ensued and the great solutions that were chosen as part of his knowledgeable, "smart" team, which is quite different from the emails, texting and remote work forces (i.e. offshoring) that are used in business today. The book continues on as Getty's business processes change, but still remain the same. It's worth reading every word. Don't wait to get it.

Good read.
I had only heard the negatives on Getty (his eccentricities and neuroses) before reading this book. This shows how he was an oilman with smart business philosophies.
