How to Be Rich
J. Paul Getty
About This Book
J. Paul Getty would like to convince young businessmen that there are no sure-fire, quick-and-easy formulas for success in business, that there are no ways in which a man can automatically become a millionaire in business.
There is no tricks, no magical incantations or sorcerer’s potions which can make a business or a businessman an overnight success. Many qualities and much hard work are needed, as are innumerable other elements, before a businessman or woman can achieve success and reach the millionaire level. The various qualities, elements and factors which other successful businessmen and J. Paul Getty have found to be essential or helpful are subjects of this book.
Part One. Becoming a Millionaire
How I Made My First Billion
Part Two. How to Succeed in Business by Really Trying
Part Three. The Value of Dissent, Culture and Nonconformity
