I'm about 1/3 through the boo, but I find the biggest drawback of the book was the American-centric advice. However, a lot of Canadian readers are missing the point: most of the retirement plans and investments mentioned have Canadian counterparts. 401k is similar to a RPP, IRA is similar to RRSP, and TFSA is a rough approximation of Roth IRA.
As for financial products, low-fee index funds, annuities and structured notes are available in Canada -- some structured products and index funds are even listed on TSX and can be traded like stocks. The Canadian equivalent of CDs are GICs, and market-linked GICs are available from major banks.
The principles are still applicable though, just need to do some more research on the Canadian offerings.
About a year ago I bought a new car. I spent months pouring over consumer reviews, test driving, talking with friends, and investigating resale value. Conversely, when I committed to saving for my retirement I did a little "Google" research, then went to my bank, met an adviser, and trusted him to help me pick my investments. I've diligently made contributions from my paycheck ever since. The truth is, I spent about 1/10th of the time investigating my retirement as I did investigating a $50k vehicle I'll drive for 5 years tops... HOW STUPID IS THAT? Apparently not that stupid, it's what most people do.
Tony Robbins new book, "Money - Master the Game" is an absolute gem! Even as a Canadian, despite the heavy US focus, this book opened my eyes to an industry designed to TAKE not CREATE wealth. This book certainly isn't the end all of investment strategies - BUT - if you want to retire on-time (or early), if you don't want to worry about running out of money before you die, if you want to maintain your current standard of living when you retire, then this book is for you!
If you don't know any of the following, you really need to read this book (you'll be glad you did):
1. 96% of mutual funds DO NOT beat the stock market (and you pay fees on top of that)
2. The advertised average rate of return for mutual funds is NOT what anyone actually got! (up 50%, down 50%, up 50%, down 50% is not 0% - it's a 43.Read more ›
His book is full of useful information, but he just cannot keep his hands out of the cookie jar. The whole book is a 600 page marketing plot for his products or products with which he has some partnership. He is the master of the game, driving the reader to believe that the financial products which his partners offer are the most logical option. Congratulations Tony, you have shown us what great master you are at marketing, selling, persuading. That is the real lesson.
Robbins also spends a somewhat suspicious amount of time extolling the virtues of specific companies that he has a stake in. So he donated the proceeds of the book which is great, but parts of the book feel like just a long advertisement for his own financial services. The advice isn't wrong or misleading, but the whole thing just feels a bit scummy.
The interviews with the financial greats were nice, if a bit short. Overall the book is worth a read, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to anyone. The important lessons from it have certainly been covered before, and could be summed up in about 20 pages, although Tony does do a good job hammering in the importance of cutting fees and discussing most concepts logically. I especially appreciate the focus on the market being almost entirely unpredictable and was glad to see that none of his advertised companies pretended to beat the market for you.
