About the Author

The author hasn't the faintest grasp of what normal people need to go through just to survive in this day and age. The references he makes and advice he gives are borderline dangerous to someone not well versed in the risks and realities of investing and quite frankly, I found much of it misleading. This book serves to give you a "feel good" sensation about investing and personal wealth growth without taking into account that most people's lives weren't/are nowhere near as enriched and fortunate as the authors and abdicates much of the fiscal responsibility necessary to achieve successful financial results. Reality check: most people don't have extra money to invest in "wealth building" ( i.e. Buying a house, starting a business, etc.) Also this author clearly states that his dad had his own private company from which he could learn all of this from--that's great, most people who read this book won't and the lessons he leverages won't resonate with most. Also, what is with the political under and over tones? I feel like I'm reading a personal page of the Trump manifesto (I didn't see this in his first book, what's changed?) The advice in this book actively undermines reasonable and safe financial dogmas (saving is for loosers? Give me a break!) which for many of us can and are the only means to financial independence given the current state of the economy (which I may add is in the state that it is right now thanks to some of the same risky principles that this author and his generation advocates for).
In conclusion, this book gives bad if not downright dangerous advice for investing as well as personal wealth growth and the author lacks a sufficient grasp of reality as it is for millions of people struggling to get by. Unless you already have plenty of money to invest and play with, try another book.
I am so glad that you wrote this book so my wife can be on board with me as shes reading this now. My wife feels there's security in a job. Shes always been an employee, and thinks thats the right thing to do. It's taken alot of time and effort even through our many successes of owning businesses and rental real estate. She does finally see the rewards from the effort. Also she has had alot of friends whom can't find work even after getting college degrees. Alot of her co-workers have $10's of thousands of college debt making only $12-14 an hour, because thats all they can get. I am so glad that you help guide and educate us that there is another way. Financial education is so important for the world right now with everything thats going on. Please keep the books coming as I am one of your biggest fans...
I recommend this book to every entrepreneur and those who have dreams of becoming financially secure.
