I realize that this is not going to be a popular review in a sea of readers who are either huge fans of Tony's work or people who are new to investing and I am in no way trying to discourage anyone from buying the book. I just hope that a few people will read this with an open mind in order to make an informed purchase.
I started following Tony's advice back in the early 90s, when I was a teenager, and am very familiar with all of his principles. A couple of weeks ago I saw a post on Facebook about him releasing a new book on finances so I bought it to see if it would be any better than his books and CDs (if you've read any of his books or listened to his CDs, you probably know that he provides very little concrete advice and invites you to attend his expensive "Wealth Mastery" seminar in order to learn more). As expected, the first few chapters of the book consist mainly of motivational material and a description of the issue (i.e. most Americans don't know how to make money in the stock market long-term). You can easily skip those without missing any critical information, unless you need motivation to invest. As I was listening to these chapters on Audible, I was starting to worry that the entire book would consist of nothing more than motivational material...
Then he finally starts going into some specifics. He starts out by saying that the secret to wealth is to add more value to other people's lives. Okay. Then he talks about deciding on a specific percentage of your income that you want to invest (he recommends saving and investing 10-20% of your income). He spends a lot of time talking about index funds (of which many books have been written before, such as books by John C.Read more ›
But after getting through half of the book and, finally, getting to the "meat" I realize that Tony has little of substance to say .
90% of the first half of the book feeds you promises of what he is going to tell you in later chapters.
He talks a lot about the "latte" factor savings. He delightfully gives examples of ultra-wealthy individuals that do not have to worry about their next meal and points out how "you are not so far away from financial freedom." He gives examples how by cutting out $4 lattes/per day or Louis Vutton bags, or not driving BMW you can save a ton of money... Duhh!
We proceed to the next section where you make a plan for how much money we'll need for the rest of our lives. Tony devotes this entire chapter to describing his web app, which is not a regular dowloadable app from a Google or Apple or other store, it's actually available on the web, but only through mobile. Huh? (Tony, you are cheap, and you should just pay Google/Apple some fees and make it easier for your readers.)
Oh, and by the way, I really have a problem that there is no differentiation between different stages in life. Tony assumes, for example, that if you are 20 and your expenses are 3K, then all you need for the rest of your life to achieve financial security (that's another chapter on how he defines security vs freedom vs another several levels of accumulation of wealth) is 36K/year for the rest of your life.
The biggest expense, at least for those in US is healthcare. (Speaking of international audience, Tony mostly about financial products relevant to Americans.) Does Tony address the healthcare cost?Read more ›
