Review

"...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." -- canadiancouchpotato.com

"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, retirehappyblog.ca

"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." -- turnonepoundintoamillion.com

"...quirky, upbeat and above all interesting...a book for anyone." -- blog.iii.co.uk

"This book is engaging and easy to read." -- retireby40.org

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

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.

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.

Format: Paperback
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!

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.

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!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first chapters sounded like common sense. They were not realistic considering that many people have children, emotions and recognize that prestige outweighs long term financial investments. I found a summary that would make the need of purchasing the book ( thus saving your money ) unnecessary :

Rule 1 : Spend like you want to grow rich, which means cultivating
frugality whether buying homes, cars or daily items.

Rule 2 : Take advantage of compound interest by starting investing
as early in life as possible — but only after high-interest debt is
eliminated. (I agree!)

Rule 3 : Pay attention to the negative impact of high fees and thus the case for
indexing: “Small percentages pack big punches.” Here he takes a
skeptical view of the motivations of the financial services industry
generally.

Rule 4 : “Conquer the enemy in the mirror.” It looks at the
problems of stock-picking and market timing, fear, greed and other
emotions that can sabotage investing.

Rule 5 : Build a “responsible portfolio” that includes both stocks
and bonds. Here Hallam introduces what he terms the Couch Potato
Portfolio.

Rule 6 : Look at indexing in the U.S, Canada, Australia and Singapore.

Rule 7 : “Peek inside a pilferer’s playbook.” It looks at
common sales practices of financial advisors and brokers. He starts by
suggesting that those planning to own their own indexed account at a
discount brokerage may want to find a fee-only adviser who can set it
up for you.

I was surprised at how quickly I read through this book and was able to start making SMART changes to my investment choices. I can't believe how naive I was before reading this book! Andrew lays out simple, easy to follow steps on how to build an indexed fund (and avoid hidden fees!!) in Canada, US, Austrailia, and Singapore. He fully explains the reasoning behind his strategy and backs it up by quotes from financial experts like Warren Buffet and nobel prize winning economists. He also shares his own personal experiences/stories, including examples of when he made poor investment choices so that you, the reader, can learn from them!

The price of this book is very worth it. I've goten good value from it and it will pay itself numerous time over by following its basic principles. I Wish I had read this book 15 years ago. I'm 33 years old now and still young enough that I Will stil profit greatly enough by following some of principals in this book. I've already made some changes in my portfolios and for the first time I feel I am in control over my investments.
Highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to save money over the long term. The younger you are the better this book will be for you.
