The business wisdom of self-made millionaire Felix Dennis
About the Author
Felix Dennis is a poet, a publisher and a planter of trees. Having left home at 15, he found himself living as a poverty-stricken musician in a London bedsit. Without a penny of capital and lacking any business experience whatsoever, he created a publishing and digital media empire which today operates on four continents. For many years the Sunday Times Rich List has ranked him in the Top 100 of Britain's wealthiest individuals.
He is the author of numerous books, including the international bestseller How to Get Rich, and has also written five books of highly-praised verse, all of which are still in print. His poetry has been performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company on both sides of the Atlantic. His sixth book of verse, Tales From The Woods, will be published by Ebury Press in 2010.
Other interests include commissioning bronze sculpture, breeding rare pigs (and occasionally eating them), drinking French wine, collecting first edition books and avoiding business meetings. His greatest ambition is to complete the planting of a large native broadleaf forest in the heart of England. He has homes in Soho, Stratford-upon-Avon, Manhattan, Connecticut and the Caribbean island of Mustique. His website address is www.felixdennis.com.

When it did arrive, I was ecstatic, and quickly devoured the text.
In summary, this book is basically an intentionally reduced version of his very excellent previous text, "How to Get Rich". The familiar adages and advice found in "How to Get Rich" are called out explicitly in this text in 88 tenets on the getting of wealth.
If you have read "How to Get Rich" (and paid attention), I am sad to say that this book will not offer you much new material to chew on. Mr. Dennis describes "How to Get Rich" as "an armchair diversion", and "88: The Narrow Road" as a "tool". I believe that is true, and that is why I have no qualms owning both texts.
My recommendation to you would be to read "How to Get Rich" if you have not already read it. Although it is "an armchair diversion", I feel that it offers up much more to be considered. You could then consider "88: The Narrow Road" as the study guide, specifically calling out the principles laid forth in the previous text, and the things which should be focused on, should you choose to tread the narrow road.
My rating applies to both "How to Get Rich" and to "88: The Narrow Road", as both texts share very similar content.
