Product Description

With Canadian personal savings lower than ever before and household debt going through the roof, many people are in dire need of financial advice. But can a book that includes sex, zombies, pancakes, and Star Trek really help? You might be surprised. Wealthing Like Rabbits is a fun, entertaining guide to personal finance that proves sound money management doesn’t have to be painful and neither does learning about it.

Combining a unique blend of humour and perspective with everyday common sense, Robert R. Brown takes you through the basics of financial planning by using anecdotes and pop culture to shed light on some of the most important, yet often mismanaged aspects of personal finance. Covering subjects ranging from retirement savings and mortgages to credit cards and debt, this book will arm you with simple strategies to help you balance your life goals with your financial responsibilities. Wealthing Like Rabbits is a smart, accessible, never-boring romp through personal finance that you will certainly count as one of your best investments ever.

I found this book very helpful and interesting. I have read several personal finance books, and found many of them to be a very dry read. This book; however, managed to connect with me on a different level. I finished the whole thing quickly thanks to the method of story telling and relating personal finance to pop culture in many instances.

I feel like this is something that they should offer to University students in their first week of school to get them started on the right financial path. I definitely would have benefited having this 10 years ago when I started at the University of Guelph. Still, 10 years later, I find much of the information to be helpful in guiding me down a positive financial path.

Shipping through Amazon was quick, and I had the book within a few days of ordering.

Great read, and highly recommended!

Stumbled upon this book while waiting in Shoppers Drug Mart.

Read a large portion of it in the store, and then promptly paid and took it home with me. (Not a habit I currently engage in)

Each chapter is more engaging then the last, and the examples used in the book are clear, understandable, and do not read like a financial guide/tool.

More so, it prompted a call-to-action from me which has not been done by any book in a real long time.

Thank you Mr. Brown for painting the picture clear, and I am now no longer happy about my tax-refund each year. How dare they borrow money from me interest free!

Best financial invest I have ever made in buying this book.

Enjoyed the book and how it's relatable to anyone. Also liked the Canadian take on it. Would recommend to friends and family.

Consider though that if you're expecting to earn a higher salary in the later stages of your career, you should wait to contribute to an RRSP. Not wait to save for retirement, 'wait to contribute to an RRSP'. This is because we are on a marginal tax bracket system. I do get the author's points about needing the money now instead of later, however I believe this alternative should have been discussed for people who are already good budgeters and live within their means.

The author has the right mix of subtle suggestion and being blunt and in your face about personal finances. Aimed specifically at Canadians and adaptable to any age group, Brown makes tedious topics interesting to read. Many of his suggestions are minor tweaks in money philosophy which can save readers thousands of dollars over their lifetime. Buy this book before shelling out hundreds of dollars to a CFA or worse, a bank financial representative who claims to be looking after your best interest while in fact steering you towards financial products with high fees and low returns.

I'm a recent University grad and had so many questions about personal finance, how to save for retirement and balance the many different financial challenges life throws at us. This book was easy to read, offered great perspectives on TFSA vs RRSPs, how mortgages work, and even buying vs leasing cars. There were all kinds of extra "life tips" that were very useful. All in straight forward language without financial mumbo jumbo. It was just what I needed. I highly recommend this book to anyone getting started with personal finance!

Bought this book for our kids to help them appreciate the power of compounding interest. The book features simple examples of how compounding happens... mix it with common sense and time...it will equal financial freedom and comfortable retirement. This book should be part of the high school curriculum.

I enjoyed the book, I'm fairly illterate on financial matters. It probably isn't the best book out there, but for guys like me it kept me interested in money talk and finished it. Definately for younger people, I'm 26 and probably too old for it. I'll definately lend it to some younger friends.
