Book Description

Jan. 25 2011
Smart, capable people are doing dumb things with their money. They can teach high school, write a marketing plan, navigate the Metro in Paris, file their own taxes, brew their own beer, program a PVR, and even raise teenagers. And still, these smart, capable people often do dumb things when it comes to their money. In Moolala, business journalist, professional coach, and popular speaker Bruce Sellery provides a simple, essential guide for those who, when it comes to managing their money, could use a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down.

The goal of Moolala is simply stated: To inspire you to get a handle on your money so you can live the life you want. Through an engaging combination of interactive exercises, personal stories, and great practical advice, the book will take you through five simple and painless steps that will dramatically improve your financial well-being. Inspiring, informative, and fun, Moolala will transform the way you think about your money — and your life.

4.0 out of 5 stars good read Jan. 29 2011
By AP
Format:Paperback
I found the book to be very well written, and an enjoyable read. He makes personal finance very understandable. I suppose I may be in the minority, but I already save, I don't struggle with motivating myself to save and I enjoy investing, it's not a chore. So, I found I had to glaze over a good chunk of the book because it didn't apply to me. However, when he did talk about his point of view on investing it made it well worth the price of admission. I plan to pass the book on to some friends who I think will be able to take a lot away from the book. I think this is a great book for someone who isn't a big fan of saving, and has limited investment experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transformational Jan. 28 2011
By Dominic
Format:Paperback
Bruce's approach is transformational. It goes way beyond typical 'how to' books on finance. Be prepared to get introspective and get connected to what money really means for you. When you arrive at your purpose for money you will drop the struggle and become far more effective in handling it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for introduction into saving Feb. 10 2011
Format:Paperback
I picked up this book after seeing Bruce on Canada AM. I starting reading the book in the airport and finished it in one day. Great tips I like how Bruce relates money matters to real life situations that I can readily understand. The book comes packed with sheets to help you get on track on saving money. I highly recommend picking this book for yourself, your loved ones, and even your kids who are just out of school and entering the workforce.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Money Book for People Like Me! Feb. 6 2011
Format:Paperback
If you're like me - not in the money field and not very good with money and frankly not all that interested in the granular world of investment - this is the book for you. It's practical, frank and accessible. It doesn't expect or even want you to become an investment guru - just be a sensible dreamer about your finances and your financial goals. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read Jan. 28 2011

Who thought a personal finance book could be funny? Great read -- and helped me figure out what my money is for ... And what it wasn't -- so I could focus on the things that are important to me ...

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're a smart money dummy, this is your book! Feb. 22 2011
Format:Paperback
It's a rare thing to read a book that feels as though it was written just for you. Reading Bruce's book helped me further sharpen my focus on what's really important and to spend, save and invest accordingly. His approach to money is honest, refreshing, funny, and most importantly, human. It puts you, and what matters to you, at the centre of the book and all the exercises in it. So, if you're a smart person who can't resist doing dumb things with your money, this book was written for you too!

5.0 out of 5 stars I sleep better at night! Feb. 11 2011
Format:Paperback
Like most people I worry about money but I am terrible at doing anything about it. Finally there is a book that makes it both easy and understandable for me to do a better job of planning my life and my future. And Bruce's humour really does help the medicine go down.
