3 min readMar 30, 2022

I’m reading this interesting book titled, “How Rich People Think” by Steve Siebold. I say that the table of content for this book is supposed to be a book on its own.

I also like that at the end of each chapter, you get a book title on money (you can call this more book ideas on money) with a quote from a rich person.

Over here, I have 18 quotes from the book to share with you. Find how rich people think.
