"BREATHTAKING... This book not only teaches you how to invest, it teaches you how to think."
--Rolf Dobelli, author of the million-copy bestseller The Art of Thinking Clearly
"ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS I'VE EVER READ... If I'd had Richer, Wiser, Happier when I started investing it would have saved me twenty years of reading and studying."
--Phil Town, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Rule #1
"UNEXPECTEDLY ILLUMINATING...Those who finish this book will find, to their delight, that they're smarter about much more than money."
--Peter H. Diamandis, MD, author of the New York Times bestsellers Abundance and Bold
"CAPTIVATING...offers pragmatic ideas to ponder, reflect on, and live by."
--Daniel Goleman, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Emotional Intelligence
"EXTRAORDINARY... a compelling meditation on ideas, and on the profound subjects of risk, resilience, and success."
--Jon Gertner, author of the New York Times bestseller The Idea Factory
"WONDERFUL... a profound, eloquent, and much-needed call for a reassessment of how we build our portfolios and live our lives."

"BRILLIANT...packed with powerful insights from the world's most successful investors.... Read Richer, Wiser, Happier and take its invaluable lessons to heart."
--Tony Robbins, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Money: Master the Game
"SELDOM SINCE JOHN TRAIN'S GREAT THE MONEY MASTERS, PUBLISHED IN 1980, HAS A BOOK PULLED SO MANY COMPELLING IDEAS TOGETHER FROM SO MANY RENOWNED INVESTORS. Based on interviews with dozens of well-known money managers, including Jack Bogle, Peter Lynch, Charlie Munger and Sir John Templeton, Richer, Wiser, Happier argues that good judgment is under continuous bombardment from Wall Street's propaganda machine. The cardinal investment virtues of independence, patience, skepticism and self-control come more easily, argues Mr. Green, when you emulate someone who obviously possesses those same virtues. Then you can cultivate what Mr. Green calls 'intentional disconnection, ' forming your own ideas away from the crowd. This takes work, and he shows how."
--Jason Zweig, personal finance columnist for The Wall Street Journal and editor of the revised edition of The Intelligent Investor
"MANY NUGGETS OF WISDOM....offers a smorgasbord of ideas from which you can pick and choose what works for you....Wise words."
--Bethany McLean, Washington Post
"ENGAGING WRITING...Throughout the book [Green] underscores the central premise that originality is overrated when it comes to investing... 'Nothing is more essential than our capacity to survive the most difficult times not only financially but emotionally.'"
--New York Times
