From the Inside Flap

Automatic Wealth for Grads is like getting your master's in financial independence—but without the midterms and textbooks. Filled with real-life examples and practical advice, this single book will teach you the secrets to getting wealthy sooner than you ever imagined . . . for many, even before the age of thirty.

Most grads discover pretty quickly that making a lot of money is not as easy as depicted in movies or on infomercials. Getting wealthy is a serious business that requires ambition, intelligent choices, and follow-through. The good news is that it doesn't matter whether you majored in English or economics, you can use these "money tested" techniques to make wealth-building not only probable but automatic. And when your cash flow balloons, you'll have more time, energy, and peace of mind to enjoy the things that really matter to you—whether it's traveling to Italy, playing the guitar, or just hanging out with friends and family.

In Automatic Wealth for Grads, self-made multimillionaire Michael Masterson becomes your personal mentor, drawing upon his own experiences and those of experts in the fields of investing, real estate, and business to offer you a complete program for achieving financial independence in record time. Organized around proven wealth-creating principles, he will show you how to quickly master the powerful moneymaking skills that will transform you into a dynamic, automatic wealth-builder, no matter what career path you choose.

The best part is that you don't need a fortune—or anything in the bank—to get started right now, whether it's finding a high-paying job, getting a huge raise, or even investing in real estate.

I just wish I had this book when I was getting out of college.
Abigail Newman
This book gives anyone who reads it all the tools and knowledge they need to become financial independent - and enjoy the freedom and choices that come with that.
Florida Reviewer
The advice is very conservative and solid... As someone "just starting out" this seems like great information to have.

When I saw the title I thought this book was going to be full of slick get rich quick kind of nonsense. But it really wasn't at all. The advice is very conservative and solid... As someone "just starting out" this seems like great information to have. Maybe some people want the book to give them a secret easy way to make tons of money on the internet or something, but in the long run I think what's in this book will prove to be more valuable.

How I wish I had this book starting out!

What makes this book special is its brilliant niche: it performs a true service for anyone starting out... or even starting over. We get so little training in economics--if we get any at all. Plus, when we're young, we tend to think we have all the time in the world, and fail to take the long view. I know I did. This book addresses these educational defects.

In addition to the sound practical advice, Masterson's philosophy puts a new spin on "win-win".

This book is a winner.

I've been in the working world for a while now, so buying this book for myself never crossed my mind. But after purchasing it as a gift for a family member, I was so impressed with what I read (I skimmed through the chapters to see what it was all about) that I bought a copy for myself! This book is filled with tons of great information and real-life examples from the author's past experiences. I highly recommend this book to people not only just starting out, but anyone looking to improve their financial future.

Format: Hardcover
When I first bought it for myself and skimmed the first few pages, I was very excited about the book and thought that it would be a worthwhile read. As I kept reading, though, it became increasingly apparent that this guy was just trying to sell copies of his book, and didn't have much worthwhile information to say. He constantly repeats that he is showing you how to "get rich" without providing any substantive advice. He repeats lists that have little or no value, including things like "Work Hard" over and over again.

From the outside in it seems great, but after going through it you will have learned very little from the book. All of the worthwhile information in the book could be sufficiently summarized in two paragraphs. I find it hard to believe that most of the other reviewers actually read the entire book. Do yourself a favor and read the better books out there, like Clason's the "Richest Man In Babylon."

Thankfully I started learning from Michael Masterson a few years ago through AWAI and Early to Rise, so I'm now well on my way. I just wish I had this book when I was getting out of college. Even though I'm only in my late twenties now, I'd be so much further ahead!

I personally burned through this book last weekend and today just finished revising my professional and financial goals for the next few years.

Along with buying copies for my two college roommates who still have not "figured it out," I bought copies for my younger cousins who will be graduating in the next few years. (Now it's up to them!)

Michael Masterson's wealth-building advice has changed my life. In just six years, I went from being a $40K-per-year employee with a negative net worth to being the owner of a thriving business and having a personal net worth of over $1 million.

I say this not to brag, but to show that Michael Masterson's advice works ... no matter what your age. (I'm in my 40s.) And, he couldn't have made it easier to follow his proven advice than he did in Automatic Wealth for Grads. I'm thrilled the kids I care about will have the chance to get started on their journey to financial independence much sooner than I did thanks to having this book to guide them.

One of the most accessible and authoritative texts in its class, majority of readers would appreciate the way the author of this book used real-life applications to deliver his message. The outlook is practical: as lively as the narratives are cogent. Positively compelling!
All the basic principles of self-actualization were discussed, making the book suitable for any disciplined soul, who wishes to carve an ebullient niche in today's corporate world.
The driving force of this book is its clear and unequivocal emphases on practical applications. This is particularly valuable because, its primary audience are fresh graduates who are yet to acquire the necessary job experiences in their respective professions. The author's uncluttered writing-style makes comprehension very easy. This, along with the well-grounded gists that he delivered, made this title a perfect vocational adviser for any new grad. It is simply a fine way to blend self-worth and acquired knowledge. A plausible reinforcement for the future!
Meanwhile, for anyone who is not a beginner in the job market, (i.e.: those who have acquired some years of working experience, but still need some motivational impetus), I would suggest that you complement this book with another fine title called "Start Late, Finish Rich" (written by David Bach).
