I think what he says fits to most of the cultures and economies but the problem is its very difficult to shift your thinking from a typical middle class mentality "to work for the money" to the rich class " let money work for you" nobody wants to take the risk, I was thinking that out of the number of copies of this book has been sold how many of the readers really became rich.

But the story belongs to 50s to 60s,AFAIR.Situation was different.In every economy there are rich people,middle class,poor class.Method of getting rich varies from country to country.In some countries porn stars can earn millions and earn respect too in society while in some countries they will be executed.
I disagree that people don't become rich because they don't risk and you can always become rich if you take big risk.
Are you talking about getting rich by opening technology startup? then you may be right .

Do a search on the web on his name and you will find quite a bit of evidencem that the book is pure fiction and the advise is hypothetical. Waste of time. Better read a classic.
