Breaking down the money myths that other reviews have bought into!,
This review is from: Killing Sacred Cows: Overcoming the Financial Myths That Are Destroying Your Prosperity (Kindle Edition)
I have never written a review before but some of the negative reviews have prompted me to do so now. Does it surprise anyone that the very people who promote the "cows" Gunderson talks about and "kills" in this book, think he is full of it? Is it shocking that the normal investment cronies, the ones who make a commission off of our "normal" investments, are trying to tear down some out-of-the-box thinking? I love the reviewer who is upset by the audacity of Gunderson's "new age thinking" on things like mindset, being in control of your life and that you should focus on what you love to do. Wow! What terrible concepts.
For someone like me who is NOT a financial adviser, investment banker, or 401K dealer, I found this to be one of the easiest, comprehensive, straightforward books on finance I have come across.
I am a small business owner. I don't understand all the complex financial jargon my local dude at the bank says. I don't regularly watch financial show, because I don't understand all they are saying. I try to educate myself, but my world is in the creative not the analytical. I honestly believe the reason some of the negative reviewers are upset is that this book breaks it down and leaves out the confusion that most books include.
I know it sounds crazy to some, but I actually believe, thinking for myself, being in control of my own destiny, creating my environment and loving what I do is important.
Gunderson has created an easy way for people to understand and take control of THEIR money and not be a slave to what Wall Street is telling us. I find it interesting that this book was written before the financial meltdown and almost everything he talked about as a warning came true. How many of the people reading this review actually no longer have a 401K that they can retire on? I bet a lot.
They nay-sayers are right in three ways: This book is simple to read, easy to understand and it will actually help you change your mindset around money, investments and savings. Exactly what the "sacred" holders don't want us to know.
I highly recommend that you get your copy today.
