Thomas Friedman was on C-span talking about his book. It sounded very interesting. (something every High School student should read) Is "The Millionaire Next Door" about people who have the money...yet you would never guess it...because they aren't living large?

Yes,it's about what ordinary people do to become millionaires, such as living well below their means, enduring sacrifice, hardwork, and ignoring conpicuous consumption. I'll just keep playing the Powerball.
