TOP 50 REVIEWERon March 17, 2012
For the most part there is nothing earth shattering here, but this is a solid, very readable collection of common sense ways for saving your money. Principles such as pay yourself first, credit cards are worse than you think (no matter how bad you think they are), beware lines of credit, debt is bad so have no more than necessary etc etc. all presented in a more entertaining manner than this review. Some of the jokes are even funny.

No magic, no big promises, just hard work. My main objection is that it's a little materialistic but after all, it does have "wealthy" in the title.

I had bought the first version when I younger, happily married, investing and buying a house. It helped me then. I bought it now again, because my situation has changed: husband gone, kids in university, now 54 years old. I had one question, was I doing the right thing with my money?. I read this book in one afternoon, and I smiled, because yes, I was doing the right thing with my money. It reassured me.This book is easy to read, and the author is friendly. It was worth buying and reading it.

your book was so amazing and practical, a little bit like myself:) I had to write and thank you.

As a single woman, no kids, and entrepreneur I take pride in being able to take care of myself, and thought I was doing a great job until I read your book and learned how to trim and save even more.

Well written and very practical, no charts and graphs, just the facts, I am looking forward to putting your advice to work.

Harpist, Tracy Sweet

I enjoyed this book more than the original despite it not offering much beyond what virtually every other financial book I've read has already said (save more, pay yourself first, etc). That said, it's a good, easy read that is extremely entertaining and hard to put down (which says a lot for a finance book).

I'd give it 4 1/2 stars if I could.

The book is a very easy read, makes you want to keep reading. Is a good refresher of all I should know, but don*t necessarily put in practise. The "pay yourself", part is a must for me, of course only after I get my line of credit down! LOL

This book got to me in just 4 days! I started reading it thinking that it was going to be a hard read because I know nothing about investing or retirement planning! I was pleasantly surprised that the concepts are easy to follow and the author is actually quite funny at sarcastic. I found myself laughing out loud as I read this book about financial planning. Also his suggestions about changing spending habits are great and simple/ easy to follow. Great quick and easy read!

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

It is well written, funny, and full of good advice. The best stuff is near the end of the book though, and he does stick an ad in the middle of the book for his other published books, but all in all a good book for starting and maintaining your financial wealth.

We enjoyed reading the Wealthy Barber and the new sequel. Even though there is much of the same information repeated, it is a good reminder for every Canadian that you can become 'rich' by being smart and saving!!!!

I read the first book years ago, so now reading the second one and review on my financing I am glad I have read both.
