I'm a personal finance author ("The Friendly Banker"). I've never met Dave and I know him only as most other Canadians do, as the author of an iconic masterpiece.

While I love to write, to sit down and actually read a book is a chore for me. Few books do a good enough job at capturing my interest to get me past the first few pages, let alone the first chapter. I`m a lousy reader. Yet, I read this book, cover to cover, in three nights with the television on and the sound muted, a miracle for me. I even missed a good portion of Monday Night Football. Need I say more? Well, I`m going to anyway.

The "The Wealthy Barber Returns" is written in a relaxed, humorous, conversational style that I found very appealing. It begins with some sage advice on the pitfalls of over-borrowing, describing the forces that draw us into debt traps and the basic human weaknesses that drive us to keep up with others in the quest to accumulate things that, in the end, are of little enduring value. I agree that the false sense of security provided by an abundance of available credit forms a dangerous mindset that can lead to disaster, especially when that credit line is represented by a mortgage on the home. For most people the concept of a Home Equity Line of Credit is too much of a temptation, leading to the illusion of short term gain followed by the reality of long term pain. Dave even takes a couple of refreshing swings at the banks for their tendency to want to lend us up to our rooftops. He recounts one story where a woman he sent to the bank to get a very modest secured line of credit was immediately up sold to the max despite her history of debt accumulation. I'm sorry to report that this is not uncommon.

I read the original Wealth Barber just prior to getting into the financial advisory business back in '92 and couldn't help wondering how much value I could offer to clients if they just bought the book and followed Roy's advice on their own. Turns out even people who read it still need someone to save them from themselves! Chilton's new book, in sync with our over spending, under saving times, provides a reminder to all of us that maybe our grandparents were right - the best things in life...aren't things! Loved the section on index investing - it mirrors my own belief (backed by experience and research) that most investors would be better off tossing out their high priced mutual funds and just buy the whole market. My sister admitted that she finally understands what indexing is after reading this. Once again Chilton hits a home run with his easy-to-read style broken up into many entertaining chapters.

I bought The Wealthy Barber Returns thinking it might be an update to The Wealthy Barber. My finances have been in need of some updating and I liked the novel format of Dave's first book. It is actually a completely different book. I loved this one even more than the first. I read it in 2 nights-I didn't want to set it down. A business book-really, I didn't want to set it down. It has made me think about my spending in ways that have made a complete difference in my life. So many of David's points come back to me when I am out shopping or about to make a purchase. I can't believe how much I have learned from this book. I finally understand index funds and TFSA's. My husband is thrilled! I am telling everyone I know to read this book. Best money I have ever spent.

A gift for yourself and those important to you (trust me I have bought 11 so far). This is likely the most relevant and practical assembly of Canadian financial concepts available today. In my experience, the material has resonated with a diverse age & financial competence range (see 11 gifts). This is a fun read, presented in an entertaining and logical format that fosters understanding, while avoiding needless complexity. In my opinion, Dave does a fantastic job of identifying the significant drivers of financial health and takes clear positions on the issues; supported by facts, opinions and real examples. This book is written with the audience in mind, distilled down to digestible concepts without taking the "teeth" from the issues. I particularly appreciate the humility of the vantage point, you are made to feel that Dave is a wise older brother or friend, sharing valuable advice and coaching - you trust him. Let's face it, we are not "hunter gatherers" - and for most of us, the ability to effectively manage our financial resources is simply a necessary life skill; money pressure can be decimating and it affects all classes of Canadians. If you put some of these concepts in place, I trust you will witness how seemingly small changes in course - can have an incredible impact over time. There is a peace that comes with the awareness that you have a level of control over your future, competence leads to confidence - and ultimately, well considered decisions. I encourage you to experience this book and share with others; it may be the most impactful gift you ever bestow.

OK
To bad the average person does not read this book. He has a lot of down to earth stratagies on investing.
