    I agree with him, however what stains his theory is the people in our world who are rich but don't have talent at all.
    Such examples, which seem prominent in our mind produce the counter reactions you mentioned, maybe the likes of Paris Hilton. And of course: envy. In Germany we say "Envy is the most honest form of paying tribute."
    However I can find nothing new in this text, we live in a world consisting of matter, we consist of matter, of course we ought to be materialist, matter gives the advantage of survival, all abstarct things are just that abstract, I can't hit my enemy with Germanicness and I can't feed my children Newton's Law.
    "Nothing is more disgusting than the majority: because it consists of a few powerful predecessors, of rogues who adapt themselves, of weak who assimilate themselves, and the masses who imitate without knowing at all what they want." (Johann Wolfgang Goethe)

    Unimportant since he did not only refer to the developement of your mind but also of your body and soul. Wealth was not the goal but the way to achieve goals for him.

    Furthermore I did not refuse to read the rest because of "materialism" which I did not find but because of simple flaws in his logical because all these things are easily possible without wealth (atleast if you do not consider the financial possibilities of an avarage Westerner as wealth).

    Perhaps I was not explicit enough - I value wealth both as a means for fulfilling material as well as intellectual ends. Clearer now?

    Most employers look for formal education though

    Or one can get paid to learn..as I did...there many things I know that I learned at work, while getting a paycheck. Problem comes up..I figure out how to solve it using information on the internet..something solved and something new learned.

    It depends, if you have, say, 10 years of experience, they don't generally even care about formal education at that point. If you've got no experience at all, then they do want a degree of some sort. You aren't going to get more than an entry-level job with no education and no experience, but after you've been at that job a year or so you've got experience, so you can look for another job that pays better..stick around there a while...and repeat.

    Needless to say, you need to start working early on in your life to make this work..someone who starts this in their mid-20s after flunking out of college, well, so sorry..

    A great many of those doing the employing however, are self-educated.

    So very true. People will be forever addicted to those get-rich-quick books despite how full of crap they are.

    I used to be very good at making money but I've lost interest in it now.

    So where is the information on how to get rich? I don't see anything. Just a bunch of long winded philosophy about nothing.
