However, if you are like many poeple I know (including myself), although you will probably not learn anything new from this book, the motivation that this book provides to get back up after losing faith in the system is more then worth the price of this book.
This book has many, many excerpts from his other books, it really is the best of put into 10 steps. I love David Bach and he really is motivational, but I notice he does rehash a lot of material from other books. If you do not own The Automatic Millionaire, buy this book and follow it. It makes sense, is easy and gives you all the tools and material you need to finish rich.
In a world full of World Street hucksters, David Bach's common sense and ease of use is a breath of fresh air.
- Brendon Burchard, author of Life's Golden Ticket: An Inspirational Novel.
(Full disclosure: I interviewed David on my blog and had him speak at my Experts Academy seminar. I think he's a really great guy. I've learned a lot from him and my audiences loved him).
Why? Mr. Bach tells us that we couldn't pick a better time than now to recommit to our retirement savings, given that an economic surge usually follows a deep recession. And judging from the recent upswing of the Dow, I would say he's right. Ups and downs are normal in the stock market. When the market is down, it is like a sale at your favorite department store ... it's time to buy. During a five month period in 2009, the Dow experienced a 38% increase, right after many people cut back on or cashed out their retirement plans. Did they miss an opportunity? You bet they did.
David Bach believes that 2010 will be the best opportunity for building wealth that we have seen in decades. And as the economy recovers, you have to be in the market to win. So if you're one of the millions who cut back back or eliminated entirely their retirement contributions, it's time to admit you made a mistake and increase your contributions RIGHT NOW!
In addition to retirement and the market, Mr.Read more ›
Bach's latest effort is typical of the genre with a lot of Tony Robbins-like motivational writing (yes you can!) and a common sense approach to paying down debt and saving for the future. The first few chapters are really aimed at people whose financial life is out of control (drowning in credit card debt, etc) so if this isn't you, much of the book will feel like it doesn't apply. The attempt at making this content new and relevant is how the book tries to counter the recession hysteria by pointing out that panic and fear resulting in stopping 401(k) payments and other saving activities will hurt more than they help. Good advice, but it would have been more effective if it had been published nine months ago. Aside from that, it contains the typical personal finance advice and recommendations that all the other books will point you to. It's not bad content, just nothing new.
If you think you need a book like this, I'd recommend something by Dave Ramsey instead, but that's mostly just personal preference.
As with all these books, you can save some time reading it if you just remember to spend less than you make.
