In this book, Chad Tennant has a conversation with you. While many other books on this topic are geared towards those well versed in finance, Tennant ensures through the first few chapters that once he gets into the meat of his book, all his readers are on the same minimum threshold of investment knowledge. This is important because it means that experts and newbies alike can gain a significant amount of insight from this book. Tennant gives it to his readers straight up and discusses the shortfalls of potentially dubious industry practices - and at the end of his book actually recommends ways to overcome those shortfalls!

Well documented and great for anyone looking to take control of their investments, I highly recommend giving Chad Tennant's "8 Hour Investor" a read!

I have always been the type of person who needs to research everything. Ever since I decided to get serious about protecting our future by responsibly investing our money, I have read a bunch of books on the subject.

None of them were as enlightening as this one!

If you are looking to take your retirement planning to the next level do not miss this book.
Even if you don't think you have enough time to do it yourself, this book just might make you change your mind. At the very least it will empower you with enough knowledge to pick the right professional help.
They are definitely NOT created equal.

Solid five stars.

There is such a glut of information about investing and money matters available in the world in various forms that it becomes overwhelming for the average person. To those people, I’d suggest buying this book. “8 Hour Investor” is a practical guide to taking control of your money, written in such a way that it is easy to understand by those with little to no experience in money matters. It contains all the information you need.

This book highlights the importance of becoming financially literate, and then delivers. It explains various terms, the roles of various types of advisors, investment strategies and much more.

I learned a lot from this book, and would recommend it to anybody who wants to know how to become more financially independent and make smart investments.
