Lehman surveyed seventy millionaires to find out their ideas about the ins and outs of money, including stocks and bonds, real estate, credit cards, and of course, taxes. He also garnered their opinions on other topics such as mortgages, clothing, travel, paying for education and retirement planning. Strangely enough, he also asked about marriage, which is an interesting aside. The responses run the gamut from well trodden to genuinely interesting and informative.
Also scattered among the pages are Lehman's own short essays on just about everything remotely related to money management. He covers the common topics of real estate marketing, car selling and buying, and his views on smart retirement planning, often injecting humor into the mix, making these diversions entertaining. He also adds odd topics, like his favorite spending advice from horoscopes. The reader is getting the full scoop here.
Within the 191 pages of the paperback version are more than three thousand years of financial advice, assuming the average age of the millionaire interviewed was fifty. The result is a book that contains more apropos information than found in a year's worth of "Wall Street Journals."
Armchair Interviews says: If you're feeling like it is time to brush up on money management, then this book is for you.
The timing could not be better, now that our country is in an enormous economic crisis! We are all feeling stressed and under pressure to save! The advice reveals numerous clear strategies that will result in greater financial security no matter what one's current economic status.
Also it occurred to me this would be a great book for young adults who are just venturing out on their own and do not know the first thing about "the value of a dollar".
General concepts on wealth-building are very important - and that's coming from someone who marketed personal financial education books such as Kiyosaki's Rich Dad, Poor Dad series - but I particularly value the specific practical tips Lehman offers over and over, since that is where the rubber meets the road in building wealth.
I appreciate the format of the book - as an easy-to-read guide - so when I'm dealing with a particular subject, like how to handle stock options, taxes or credit cards, I can flip to that section and have 70 millionaires in my back pocket giving me their advice on the matter. Brilliant!
I'm more than recommending it - I'm buying this for friends and family this Christmas - it's a timely gift to loved ones in our current economic climate!
