Product Description


"...if you are looking for the first, and possibly only, book to read if you want to figure out how to finance the rest of your life, you can read Andrew Hallam’s “The Millionaire Teacher.”" -- Scott Burns

"'Millionaire Teacher' is a an inspiring must-read." -- Canadian Business

"It’s that kind of experience and wisdom that makes 'Millionaire Teacher' such an outstanding book. It’s easy to find excellent books about investing, but it’s rare to read an author who so clearly understands how people think and act in their financial lives." --

"The book itself focuses on nine rules of wealth that people should have learned in school... These rules nicely distill what has been said in many of the better personal finance books out there: particularly those that cover indexing and the futility of high-cost actively managed investment approaches." -- Financial Post

"I would recommend Hallam’s book as a great investment guide for the investor that wants to be more engaged with their portfolio." -- Jim Yih,

"Written simply, the book is suitable even for those who have little knowledge of finances." -- Personal Money

"If you want to make sure that your money is invested wisely, then this is the book for you." --

"...quirky, upbeat and above all interesting...a book for anyone." --

"This book is engaging and easy to read." --

Product Description

The incredible story of how a schoolteacher built a million-dollar portfolio, and how you can too

Most people wouldn't expect a schoolteacher to amass a million-dollar investment account. But Andrew Hallam did so, long before the typical retirement age. And now, with Millionaire Teacher, he wants to show you how to follow in his footsteps. With lively humor and the simple clarity you'd expect from a gifted educator, Hallam demonstrates how average people can build wealth in the stock market by shunning the investment products peddled by most financial advisors and avoiding the get-rich-quicker products concocted by an ever widening, self-serving industry.

Using low cost index funds, coupled with a philosophy in line with the one that made Warren Buffett a multi-billionaire, Hallam guides readers to understand how the stock and bond markets really work, arming you with a psychological advantage for when markets fall.

  • Shows why young investors should hope for stock market crashes if they want to get rich
  • Explains how you can spend just 60 minutes a year on your investments, never open a financial paper, avoid investment news, and still leave most professional investors in the dust
  • Promotes a unique new investment methodology that combines low cost index funds and a Warren Buffett-esque investment philosophy

Millionaire Teacher explains how any middle-income individual can learn can learn the ABCs of personal finance and become a multi-millionaire, from a schoolteacher who has been there and done that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wealth Building 101 Oct. 27 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the 1 book that every beginning investor and high school student should read. The author shows the average person the 9 rules he or she needs to follow to build wealth steadily and safely. He shows how he did it through self-discipline, index funds and asset allocation. Start young, pay off your debts and invest, invest, invest. The "Opportunity After Chaos" section (page 78) alone is worth the price of the book. I like this book because it was written by a high school English teacher who has "been there and done that", he's a millionaire about 40 years old. This book was not written by a finance / economics professor or a "talking head" in the finance industry or a financial advisor. I couldn't put this book down, and will probably read it again a few more times.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's AboutTime! Oct. 11 2011
By RBisset
Yes indeed, it is about time someone wrote a finance book for adults so that they can have meaningful investment conversations with their children. For some reason, finance is a taboo subject in most families. And it's a real shame, as Andrew Hallam correctly points out, because the time to begin investing is when you're young. And taking advantage of man's 'greatest invention', compound interest, and investing in low-fee Index Funds, means anyone can become wealthy over their lifetime.

Andrew does an excellent job of making complicated concepts easy to understand. He does this by simplifying and demystifying the investment process in an entertaining and enjoyable way. Buying/Reading "Millionaire Teacher" is an excellent investment to make!

5.0 out of 5 stars "But... what about your pensions?!" Nov. 14 2011
By Amy ZM
When my husband and I first decided to become full-time, overseas teachers, most of our colleagues looked at us like we had two heads apiece and exclaimed, 'But what about your pensions?' Fortunately for us, there is Andrew Hallam and this fantastic book. Having followed Andrew's advice and blog for years now, we know his strategy works. His book clearly makes his case for easy, logical investing; his anecdotes, when you're confronted with financial advisors who want your business, resonate with you; his voice engages, like he's sitting in a chair next to you, genuinely wanting to help your portfolio grow, not his. Now, whenever anyone asks us 'But what about your pensions?' we hand them this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking out for the average investor Jan. 17 2012
By P.Barto
I have read your book cover to cover many times and every time I do I seem to learn something new! Just love it! I feel like a student again! You know you have a good book when the spine is creased and cracked and the the corners of the pages are bent from all the bookmarking. Thanks for all of your insight into Canadian Banks! it is amazing to see how our interests are not looked after and how making money for themselves is always on the agenda.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book, bit complex of a read, especially the later chapters. If you invest in the stock market, you MUST read this. You could be throwing away ~50% of your retirement income if you're investing wrong. Investing should take you an hour a year and you shouldn't lose half your returns to managed mutual funds. Trust me, 2% doesn't sound like much... but if you know anything about the power of compounding, it's a word of difference!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best teachers I know! Nov. 11 2011
When I first heard about Millionaire Teacher, I was excited to get my hands on it. Now that I have, I couldn't imagine not owning this gem in my personal finance library!

Millionaire Teacher doesn't preach nor beg you to change your ways. It simply lays out Rules 1 - 9 so you can make that decision yourself, if you want to be wealthy or not.

The theme that runs through Millionaire Teacher is that most adults lack basic "financial literacy". It's not our fault, our educational system and our financial system are inherently flawed and working against us. That doesn't mean you or I should play victim to that environment, rather, take charge, learn and get control over your financial life. Nobody cares more about your money that you do, except maybe Andrew Hallam.

Using Millionaire Teacher as your guide, you can avoid many financial pitfalls and dark caverns, if you want to. High-cost mutual funds, massive credit card debt, sky-high mortgage costs, an underperforming portfolio and chasing story stocks are just some examples.

Millionaire Teacher is your guide to understanding the wealthy. The wealthy don't drive the best cars nor covet material goods. Rather, they follow a basic recipe of living within your means, saving, and investing wisely for tomorrow. I have read few books that distill the path to wealth creation as simple, straight-forward and as witty as Andrew Hallam has.

I encourage everyone to get their copy of Millionaire Teacher like I did, so you can avoid being schooled by the financial industry and others who want your money. My advice, keep that money for yourself, and get Andrew Hallam's book to show you how. What are you waiting for, buy this book!

I purchased The Millionaire Teacher a few weeks ago, and I have to say, it's worth every penny and more.

Andrew Hallam has the amazing ability to not only discuss about how he became a millionaire at a young age, but provides a thorough account of his experiences in investing in low-cost index funds and owning individual stocks.

In my view, Hallam offers the investor a fool-proof way (and easy to understand) to beat the markets by investing low-cost index funds and applying a straight-forward rebalancing approach. This is not a novel - Hallam has crunched the numbers to back his findings, and the investor will find this book to be more than just useful. In fact, it may very well change the way you invest.

After reading material from great investment legends like Warren Buffet and being featured in prominent personal finance publications such as MoneySense and Globe Investor, Hallam's book has secured a firm place in my personal finance library. A 5-star rating all the way to the bank!
