Overview: The title makes it sounds like a motivational book, but it really isn’t. Instead, it’s a novel that shows us how money can really change people. Nicky is at his best friend Russells’ house. They grew up together and Russell is richer than, well, everybody. When Russell drops dead in his bathroom, Nicky (who is poor) convinces his wife to not report the death, instead coming up with a plan where the two of them can live off  his wealth and experience the high-life for a while. Predictably, you can’t keep someone’s death a secret forever and soon their plan starts unravelling – but not before they know what it’s like to be rich!
