Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Millionaire Mystique, because I’m not a feminist – I believe that, in the end, society will become so equal that gender won’t matter. It turns out that my beliefs could well be wrong.
Jude Miller Burke is a female millionaire, and in her book she looks at how dozens of other women became millionaires through hard work and perseverance. It turns out that sexism is inherent, and the millionaires’ advice is to plough through it.
The data-backed tips that Burke has to share are equally relevant whether you’re male or female, and her book turns out to be the sort of book that everyone in your workplace should read.
It’s worth calling out my rating system here – the copy that I read had a couple of typos, and that’s usually an automatic 6/10. This is different, though – I was given an uncorrected proof, a pre-release copy of the book before it goes past the editors.
In fact, the most common typos consisted of two words which ran together in to one, and nothing that you wouldn’t pick up by running a spellchecker – besides, I’ve read loads of books from the same publisher (Nicholas Brealey Publishing), and I’m sure that their usual high standard will be clear after it receives one final polish and goes to print.
