From the Inside Flap
As a high school teacher Andrew Hallam is aware of what kind of personal finance education you probably received in school. While you were memorizing the names of dead presidents, battling with trigonometry and laboring over a periodic table of elements, you were probably getting short-changed on the basics of money.
So he wants to make it up to you: with Millionaire Teacher-Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School.
This isn’t a get-rich quick scheme. It is, however, the same time-tested, evidence-based plan that allowed Mr. Hallam to become a millionaire on a teacher’s salary.
Journey with him to explore what most wealthy people already know: if you spend your money responsibly, you can eventually grow rich.
Let him guide you to evidence-based investment strategies of index funds, and laugh when you learn how to whip the pants off most finance professionals, while spending just an hour and a half each year on your investments.
Best of all, learn to defend yourself against the self-serving army of financial planners that aim to pad their own bank accounts, at your expense.
The nine rules of wealth weren’t part of your school curriculum. But it’s not too late to learn them. Take this final class with an entertaining teacher who has already walked to walk. You deserve it.See all Product Description

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!
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!
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!
