Review of Better than Any Dream

Paul Miller tells all in this well written autobiography. Mightily successful in that period when the stock market went from a rich man’s game to everyman’s retirement, full of love for his friends and family, he tells it all exactly as you know it was. A great read, dispite the chapters on investing and finance, because he never takes himself too seriously. A captain of industry, a benevolent husband and father he is, as he admits himself, just a big kid. He’s obviously enjoyed every minute of his life and the reader will as well. — Mickey Dalton

    I’m really glad Dad took the time to write this book. Although Dad talks about his fantastic success in the business world, he also spends a fair amount of time talking about his experiences growing up, his marriage to his wife of almost 58 years, his children and his close friends. No doubt about it – Dad’s really smart and a great investor. But that would not have been enough for MAS (the investment management firm which he co-founded) to succeed. When I started working for MAS in 1983, the firm had about 30 people including 6 partners. People working there were all treated like family: warmly and with respect. Their love for my Dad played a huge role in the success of the firm. I think you will really enjoy the book.

    Paul Miller Jr was a ‘one off’ an original. I was privileged to know him whilst on a Rotary Fellowship to Wharton, just when his success was begining to go into overdrive. It would be great to learn how he is these days. Peter Woolsey

    As a distant cousin, the read was a treat. Learned much about our family and my cousin Paul (Bud). Seemed we both elected to discard our kid handles ( Ed/ Jack) and assume our given names. I enjoyed the directness of his writing style and the range of subject matter. I was particularly moved with Paul’s answer to the important question What is Success.
