Everyone Must Read,
This review is from: Millionaire Teacher: The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School (Paperback)
I was reading Money Sense magazine while half asleep and turned the page and read "When I lived on Vancouver Island in 1999, I started a investment club with a number of fellow school teachers" and looked up to see a drawing of my grade 7 teacher staring back at me. I was shocked. The guy who I remember racing on a tandem bike with his wife and jumping on desks and telling stories that would keep the sufferer of the highest case of A.D.D glued in anticipation is also a very accomplished writer and investor. I immediately ordered the book from Amazon and hammered through the book in a couple of days. This book is the investors version of the Wealthy Barber, knowledgeable yet straightforward and easy to read. I loved how it compiled the best of many books while using concrete facts rather then stipulation like most investing books. Also, having the game plan laid right out of what index funds to buy depending on what market you are in. Makes everything sound so easy.
My money sense isn't that great. Though I am self-employed and like reading about the world, economies, industries and finance I have a hard time pulling the trigger on investments that I have no control over. I watch the stocks on my phone but have never bought any, just relying on my financial adviser, which now I know loves to sell items that won't help me like GIC's and mutual funds. In reading this book I now know that I have a lot of better options and will put his advice to good use.
This book is a must read for anyone,
