Summary

The Accidental Millionaire is the memoir of Gary Fong, would-be slacker who revolutionized wedding photography, inventor of popular photography aids, entrepreneur, contrarian, bon vivant and a man who really, really didn┐t want to become a doctor. A first-generation Chinese-American, Gary was raised in one of Los Angeles┐ least-desirable neighborhoods and was forced to deal»in his own quirky and often very funny way»with the burdens of poverty, crime and his parents┐ relentless aspirations. These issues almost overwhelmed him until he had a dramatic epiphany. Spotting a bumper sticker that read ┐Since I gave up hope, I feel much better,┐ Gary promptly did just that. He stopped trying and started succeeding. At turns hilarious, insightful and instructive, The Accidental Millionaire is Horatio Alger-meets-David Sedaris. Turning the traditional self-help principles upside down, The Accidental Millionaire disdains the goal-oriented approaches of traditional self-help philosophies. Sometimes not knowing where you are going is the best possible way to get there.
