O'Shaughnessy, portfolio manager and contributor to financial media, aims to explore every facet of investment opportunities for Millenials. He offers his investment strategy for outperforming the market, based on five key attributes that, implemented together, become powerful. (Booklist)

O'Shaughnessy provides sound advice that will give millennials the advantages they need to improve their financial future. (Publishers Weekly)

Patrick has done something very unique: he's written a highly readable book that speaks up--not down--to young investors, while keeping things sophisticated enough so that even veteran investors will find indispensable insights within. (Joshua M. Brown, author of Clash of the Financial Pundits and on-air contributor to CNBC)

If someone had given me this book when I was in my 20s, I'd be a billionaire today. Buy this book for someone you love who is in their 20s. They will think kindly of you when they are in their 60s. (Barry L. Ritholtz, Chief Investment Officer, Ritholtz Wealth Management)

Patrick has got it right. The sooner you start investing, the more you make. Patrick's recommendation to invest broadly in international stocks is also spot on for young investors. This book is a must read for anyone from their 20's to 40's. (Tim McCarthy, Former President, Charles Schwab and author of The Safe Investor)

Most young investors I know have abandoned stocks, and that's a big mistake. O'Shaughnessy lays out a clear path for building wealth over a lifetime with a key message: start now, invest globally, and master your own behavior. (Meb Faber, CIO, Cambria Investment Management, and author of The Ivy Portfolio)

Patrick O'Shaughnessy has written an accessible, thought-provoking guide to helping Millennials make the right financial decisions. (Kevin Roose, Bestselling author of Young Money)

Patrick's book is a must read for my generation, and anyone who cares about building a more secure life for themselves and their loved ones. His message is clear: the time to act is now and the future is ours to take! (Bryce Dallas Howard, Actress)

I remember when I first read the Intelligent Investor and the way that Ben Graham came out with some very simple portfolio level recommendations, such as beginning with a portion of your funds in bonds and some in stocks. In fact, he went further to recommend a 50/50 split. But as you continued to read the book, what unfolded before you was not a simpleton but a brilliant intellect unpacking example after example for you. Anyone who would have written off his initial generalizations simply because they were too simple, would have greatly underestimated the reasoning that went into reaching those conclusions and the stability of his intellectual foundations.

I have the same feeling about this book. In this book he proposes broad portfolio policies. But I think anyone who ignores them will be much less wealthy in the long run. This book is one of my favorites. I highly recommend it.

This book is a must read for any millennial or any financial advisor. Patrick does a great job striking the balance between making the book an easy read while writing at a very high level. Highly recommended for those in the financial services industry or those just looking to save for financial independence. I was extremely motivated to save more and invest smarter after the read. Any young person that you buy this book for will thank you in thirty years!

$25,000 invested at age 25 with a normal growth profile would become 1.5 million when their Social Security age arrives. Invest it better, by prudently choosing great companies to buy, and it could become $3 million. A worthy book to guide this result is Millennial Money: How Young Investors Can Build a Fortune, by Patrick O’Shaughnessy, Its theme is that with so much information readily available, Millennials can become the most successful investing generation in history!! It is persuasive, cleverly written, never snide, and very optimistic. HIghly recommended.

Without a background in finance or the stock market myself, I thought Patrick did a phenomenal job of breaking down the keys to building wealth in an easy to follow blend of financial data and engaging storytelling. He contextualizes the reasons our generation views investing as it does, and details the ingredients necessary for setting yourself up for financial security and early retirement. I found Millennial Money to be incredibly insightful and wish I had read this book years ago. A must read- 5 stars.

Great insight for the Millennial generation about the importance of investing from an early age: Social Security can't provide them the purchasing power it does today, therefore they must invest early and often. Makes clear that the stock market is the safest long term investment. I'm buying it for my three Millennials.

I am recommending Patrick's book to everyone I know. He breaks his strategy down and makes it so easy a caveman could do it. I read Cramer's book before this and I couldn't tell you one thing about it. Patrick knocked it out of the park for our age group and I couldn't be more grateful.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you picked up this book on the strength of the O’Shaughnessy name, you may be disappointed to realize that the author is not the founder of O’Shaughnessy Asset Management, but his millennial-aged son. However, that shouldn’t deter you from reading what turned out to be one of the most interesting investment books I’ve ever encountered, especially if you fit into the target demographic of young people with a long investment horizon ahead of you.

What makes this book so interesting is that it’s not only about specific investment advice, but about the larger issues that affect our investments. The first section addresses larger economic trends, including the inflation associated with the absence of a gold standard, to argue that young investors need to completely rethink the definition of “risk” in an investment. The risk isn’t crazy fluctuations in the short-term, but rather the loss of purchasing power due to steady inflation over the years. On a similar note, O’Shaughnessy argues that individual investors are actually better able than fund managers to achieve good returns over the long term, because we can disregard short-term fluctuations in our own portfolios, while fund managers are more concerned about keeping their jobs by avoiding any terrible but ultimately irrelevant losses in a single year or even quarter. O’Shaughnessy also says that we should take a global approach in our investing, citing the example of Japan in the 1990s to show that even the most successful-seeming industrial economy can be susceptible to devastating collapse.

The second section of the book presents the more typical discussion of a specific investing approach that the author recommends.

Note to Baby Boomers with adult children: This book review is for you. Buy a copy for your Millennial children and encourage them to read it. Getting started early will make an incredible difference over the course of their lives.

Most readers of financial books and news today are Baby Boomers or early Gen Xers, as it isn't until early middle age that most Americans begin to think seriously about saving and investing for retirement. The Millennials, at this stage of their lives, are more focused on starting their careers and paying down student loans; retirement planning is not high on the list of priorities.

Patrick O'Shaughnessy--himself a Millennial--seeks to change this generational attitude in Millennial Money: How Young Investors Can Build a Fortune. It is an impassioned plea to start saving early and aggressively, as the Millennials will face a very different reality in their golden years than that enjoyed by their parents and grandparents. Written by a Millennial in a voice that other Millennials will understand, O'Shaughnessy writes about "financial karma" and notes that, when it comes to money, we reap what we sow: "Building good individual financial karma is straightforward: spend less than your earn and invest a chunk of your income in the stock market every year."

Unfortunately, as a collective, we're looking at some very bad karma. Social Security--if it still exists in anything resembling its current form--will be far less generous, as America's high and growing debt load makes the status quo unsustainable.
