The Millionaire Next DoorLast week, The Simple Dollar reviewed The Millionaire Next Door in detail. This week, The Simple Dollar is giving away the book to one lucky winner!

Here’s how you enter:

If you have a blog:

1. Dig around the archives of The Simple Dollar and find a post that interests you besides this one. You can explore the site using the search field in the upper right, paging through some of the recent posts (there’s a link to previous posts at the bottom of this page), and so on.

2. Write a blog post about it, adding your own thoughts, and include a link to the post at The Simple Dollar. The real reason for this contest is to facilitate discussions, so all you have to do is start one!

3. Send an email to trent -at- thesimpledollar -dot- com with the URL of this blog post and with the phrase “Giveaway #1″ somewhere in the subject line. I’ll read the post (and probably comment on it if it’s interesting). You also might want to read the part about what happens if you win.

That’s it, you’re entered! Only one entry per blog, please! Multiple entries from the same blog will be reduced to one entry.

If you don’t have a blog or if you don’t want to write a blog post about “The Crappy Dollar”:

I haven’t forgotten about you guys! Here’s what you do.

1. Dig around the archives of The Simple Dollar and find a post that interests you besides this one. You can explore the site using the search field in the upper right, paging through some of the recent posts (there’s a link to previous posts at the bottom of this page), and so on.

2. Write fifty words about it, adding your own thoughts, and send an email to trent -at- thesimpledollar -dot- com containing this short piece with the phrase “Giveaway #1″ somewhere in the subject line. The real reason for this contest is to facilitate discussions, so all you have to do is start one! If your thoughts are particularly intriguing, I’ll probably write back.

That’s it, you’re entered! Multiple entries from the same email address will be deleted; there will be only one entry per address. If I figure out that one person is sending entries from a bunch of addresses, I’ll delete -all- entries from that person. This is entirely at my discretion.

The contest closes at 6:00 PM ET on Thursday, November 16, 2006.

How Is The Winner Determined?

Once the contest closes, I’ll put all of the valid entries in a folder by themselves, then use this random number generator to pick a number at random. I’ll count the emails up to that number, and the one with that number is the winner! The winner will be announced on The Simple Dollar on Friday, November 17, 2006; if the winner wrote a blog post, the announcement will include a link to that winning post. I’ll also contact the winner by email to get a mailing address.

Good luck to everyone!
