'Infuriating... Wilkin's main claim is that the super-rich have discovered 'secret' ways of both making and preserving their fortunes... like [Capital author Thomas] Piketty, Wilkin has a love-hate relationship with capitalism. He takes the view that most billionaires are rich because, one way or another, they have found ways to rig the market.' The Times

What does it take to make a fortune?

Hard work? Great ideas? Intelligence? Business acumen?

Or something else entirely?

Spanning centuries and continents, from the Ancient World to the 21st century, Wealth Secrets of the 1% uncovers the economic principles that enable a fortunate few to get really rich. Witty, provocative and immaculately researched, it is essential and revelatory reading at a time when 1% of the world's population owns half of its wealth.


'Clever [and] entertaining, with a distinctly satirical edge' Daily Mail

'Illuminating [and] eye-opening... sure to make libertarian heads explode' Kirkus Reviews

'What makes this book different is that Sam Wilkin is an inside man' Daily Telegraph

'No one gets really rich reading how-to-get-rich handbooks...Wilkin offers up the real scoop in Wealth Secrets of the One Percent, a delicious - and insight-packed - send-up of the genre.' Toomuch.com

MEDIA REVIEWS
An amazing read. It turns out you don't need to be a genius to get fabulously wealthy. You only need to make one of these basic wealth secrets work for you. Wilkin's deep research studying Indian billionaires, American magnates, Russian oligarchs, Mexican tycoons, Roman generals and assorted others of the mega-rich lead Wilkin to identify their wealth secrets. Get on to one of those and you too can light your cigars with $100 bills . . . * Marvin Zonis, Professor Emeritus, Booth School of Business, the University of Chicago *
This clever, entertaining piece of work is a self-help book with a distinctly satirical edge. Rich and poor will enjoy it equally, and if you have a modest entourage, I would consider getting copies for them too. * Daily Mail *
What makes this book different is that Sam Wilkin is an inside man ... Pay attention, for this could be your chance to follow in the immaculate Italian leather shod footsteps of the world's one per cent. * Daily Telegraph *
If you want to become ultra-rich, this book is for you. Sam Wilkin combs history for a provocative and well-written account of the secrets of wealth formation. Just reading this book will make you richer. * Darrell M. West, Vice President of Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution and author of Billionaires: Reflections on the Upper Crust *
Illuminating [and] eye-opening... sure to make libertarian heads explode' * Kirkus reviews *
