The book was dissappointment for someone who has been reading finance. The author tells you that being rich is so EASY: Basically do not spend money at all, and every single cent you earn you should invest (No one needs to be expert to know that). He gives a Latte Factor example, and of coarse puts several of these handy dandy charts where if you earned 15% annually your money would be this much in 30 years, and so on.
What really annoyed me was the advice he gave,here is basically his rules
1.Maximize your 401k, if you can't, you should put at least 15% (your spouse should also put that same amount).
2.Also make sure you save 10% each month into some kind of savings your mutual fund accout (PAY yourself first).
3.Ohh by the way you should also put 10% extra each month for your mortgage.
To be able to do these you need do more than just NOT drinking Lattes. An average latte costs 3.5 dollars, multiply that with 240 (appr. week days). You save 840$. If you did the math you can't accomplish all this by just saving money from a latte. I agree with him that Latte's are expensive, and you should mostly drink at home. Why do I keep mentioning Latte's because he almost has a chapter devoted to Lattes himself.
Another dissappointing thing was the authors lack of basic Economic principle (He should go a study ECON101 again). He is saying in the next 6 weeks you can easilyy make an additional income of 10%. Saying it and being realistic are two different things. For self employeed he says just simply jack up your prices. First of all if you had a lot of demand for your product/service, and it was hard to supply it to all your customers, you would have already increased your prices (You don't need this book to tell you that). And if you don't have that much demand increasing your prices will result in a loss most likely, because you would lose Customers (Unless you are a monopoly in your area of coarse). So its NOT you who determines what how much you earn, its the market and the customers, so be carefull in increasing your prices so quickly. Its about all SUPPLY and Demand. Do your math.
There were several things like this in the book where the author neglects important things. But as i said in my title if this is your first book on Finance, you should buy it, because he points on several usefull things also.
In conclusion, i would not recommend this book for people who have been reading finance, you are much better off by picking an ECO101 book...
