Want to be a millionaire? Start thinking like one. And if you're not sure how, one logical first step is to start reading like one. 

MillionaireMatch, a dating site for high-net-worth individuals, conducted a survey over the holidays to determine the books most recommended by millionaires. About 500 users were surveyed, and according to a site representative, their millionaire status was "verified" by way of submitted financial documents. The most popular page-turner for single millionaires ⁠— topping the list with about 243 recommendations ⁠— was Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now, followed by Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich with 212 recommendations.
