Found it to be quite different than his first book. Not as entertaining but still somewhat informative. If I had to choose between the two books; I'd pick the original Wealthy Barber.

I wanted to like this book, I really did, but honestly, the book was a disappointment compared to some of the 4 and 5 star reviews you'll see. Sure, the author is likable and has a sense of humor/ writing style that will keep you engaged, but otherwise, it's all common sense.

If you are already saving a chunk of your income, this book offers nothing new. The first half is all about living beneath your means and tucking away 10% of your pre-tax income away before you see it - common knowledge for anyone remotely interested in their financial well being. The remainder of the book is devoted to talking about the miracle of compounding returns (again, nothing revolutionary), or has discussions regarding indexes and some of the various investment vehicles available to Canadians. This is where I hoped to glean the most benefit, but aside from Dave preaching that you shouldnt try to beat the market (and rightfully so), on the key questions of RRSP vs TFSA vs RESP, the answer is a resounding.... 'it depends'.

Bottom line. Well written book, but very, very basic information. Would not buy again if given the option... I'd rate it a 5 or a 6/10, tops.

Skip the original "The Wealthy Barber" which reads like a story and contains some inaccurate advice. The author has admitted as much, with the original having been written in the late 1980s when Canadians didn't have access to the financial tools they do now.

This new one? A+. Tonnes of great advice, humour, short chapters on specific topics. It's a quick read and one you won't find painful to pick up again and refer to.
