From the Inside Flap
David Bach has a plan to help you live and finish rich--no matter where you start
So you feel like you've started late?
You are not alone.
What if I told you that right now as you flip through this book, 70% of the people in the store with you are living paycheck to paycheck?
What if I told you that the man browsing the aisle to your left owes more than $8,000 in credit card debt? And the woman on your right has less than $1,000 in savings?
See? You're really not alone.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of people who've saved too little and borrowed too much will never catch up financially. Why? Because they don't know how.
You can start late and finish rich--but you need a plan.
This book contains the plan. It's inspiring, easy to follow, and is based on proven financial principles. Building a secure financial future for yourself isn't something you can do overnight. It will take time and it will take work. But you can do it. Just because you started late doesn't mean you are doomed to an uncertain future. Whether you're in your thirties, forties, fifties, or beyond, there is still time to turn things around. It's never too late to live and finish rich. All it takes is the decision to start.

I want to write the author and see how these people are doing today, the couple he made buy a house in 2004 so they would get rich off the equity. If you are starting late you need to be reading F.I.R.E. books, not the antiquated info in this book! Perhaps the info on how to get out of debt or get a raise is good, but honestly, if I were this author I would have either written a revision or pulled the book from shelves because it is so not appropriate for getting ahead today. I'm 38 and found much more helpful info in books about extreme early retirement and financial independence.
If you are young, any of David Bach's books will be helpful regardless of their title. You are never too young to start saving, and he has great advice on how much, how and when to do this. Goals such as retirement and college are important. But if you just start building your financial portfolio as early as you can, you almost won't need to worry about the goals - the money will be there when you need it. David Bach also helps you to differentiate need from want, and identifies what "wants" waste your hard earned money.
I recommend the Finish Rich series for everyone, young and old alike. These books are must haves!
Bach's book is simple to follow, logical, and immensely motivational. My only regret is that several chapters talk about Institutions and support in the USA. I live in South Africa therefore these parts of the book were not relevant to me. But Bach gave me the leads to research the equivalent institutions in my own country.
I recommend the book to anyone who, like me, has fooled themselves by thinking all their working lives that money is not important. It's a crucial aspect of wellbeing!
