Randall Jones talked to 100 of the richest self-made men in various towns in America (the RMITs). He found out what they have in common and turned that into 12 commandments. If you grasp these 12 concepts and apply them in your life, he says, you can break out of the "salary trap" and eventually hurtle past the 100-million-dollar mark (the minimum RMIT bankroll). With his folksy cadence and avuncular tone, Jones steers the narration convincingly. Unfortunately, though, his whole pitch seems out of date. And the key concepts are unremarkable—work hard, start early, and be ambitious. Perhaps it might be more realistic to shoot for being THE MILLIONAIRE NEXT DOOR instead of aiming for a club whose average net worth is 3.5 billion.
