How to get Rich
By Felix Dennis
Ebury Press £7.99
FT bookshop price: £6.39

There is no shortage of books on how to get rich, most of them written by poor people. At least Felix Dennis amassed £750m as a magazine publisher before he decided to share his wisdom. Sadly, this book is not so much about how we could get rich as how Dennis did.

The author has the good taste to admit that you have to be a little lucky to get on the rich list – as well as brash and single-minded. Unfortunately, he also has enough bad taste to reprint some of his own poetry, most of which revolves around himself and his pots of money.

The omens aren’t looking good if you need this book to tell you how to make your fortune, but budding billionaires will find some useful information here.
