Useless garbage. Read literally any other book instead.
on April 28, 2016
This is hands-down the worst book I've read this year. No, make that the worst book I have picked up or even touched this year. It is a dumbed-down mixture of "The Secret," neoliberal dogma, thinly veiled racism, and meaningless platitudes. Page by page, I could feel my brain cells dying. This garbage contradicts itself and doesn't even care. Wealth "cannot be created or destroyed," but it can apparently be "generated." Sure, you'll generate plenty of wealth if you write a sh***y book and convince a bunch of would-be upwardly mobile dopes to pay good money for it.
Here is an actual quotation from this book: "If you simply remove a man from the ghetto, he takes the ghetto with him. However, if you remove the ghetto from the man, he is free to go where he wants and leave the ghetto behind." HOW IS THIS RACIST TRIPE GOING TO HELP ME ACHIEVE MY FINANCIAL GOALS?
You could pick up literally any other book about personal finance and get more substantive, less ideological, and more useful information.
Please don't waste your dollars on this book. After all, as Reynolds helpfully explains, "There are only 100 pennies in a dollar." Marvin Reynolds deserves none of them for this waste of good ink and paper.
