Another JLP Roundup

February 29, 2008

  3. JLP, I’m one of the authors of The Middle-Class Millionaire (“9 traits of the Middle-Class Millionaire”) and I’m glad you noticed Jonathan’s posting about our new book.

    The Middle-Class Millionaire uncovers the differences within the struggling middle-class and the thriving middle-class. It’s based on original research and provides some specific ways to look at how American households are evolving in the 21st Century.

    Thanks for your interest!
