One of the world's most successful media moguls shares eighty-eight tips for starting a business and getting rich.

In How to Get Rich, British mogul Felix Dennis told the engaging story of how he started a media empire and became one of the wealthiest men in Britain-all without a college degree or any formal training.

Now he shows readers exactly what it takes to start a business and make it successful. Dennis offers a pithy guide for those determined to attempt what he calls the getting of money-regardless of the consequences. His eighty-eight tips include:

• Do not fall in love with any project. You may believe in it wholeheartedly, but must remain prepared to abandon it should it show signs of failing.
• If you are unwilling to fail, sometimes publicly and even catastrophically, you will never be rich.
• You will never get rich working for your boss.

No one knows better than Dennis what it takes to get rich, and his battle-tested advice-delivered with his signature wit-will surely appeal to serious entrepreneurs.
