This book contained solid, long-term investment advice. I have readjusted my retirement accounts to match the strategies described in this book.
My only complaint is that the author spent too much time convincing the reader about the benefits of index funds. A few chapters into the book I kept saying to myself, "ok, I get it, low cost index funds are better than actively managed mutual funds, now move on".

Overall excellent book. It bogs down when he reads off all of the funds for the alternate countries. Other than that, good stuff.
Not a fan of this narrator particularly.

What did you like best about Millionaire Teacher? What did you like least?
The ultimate moral of the story is to invest in index funds. It is a very American book and doesn't tell you how to invest or what to do thereafter, perhaps I need another book?
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I like the story telling but all his comparisons made me feel terrible that I hadn't started investing my £5 a week when I was 10 years old, made me feel a failure.
What three words best describe Peter Drew’s performance?
Funny tales but really you should leave out reading out tables, this is the most boring thing ever and doesn't add anything to the listening experience.
Did Millionaire Teacher inspire you to do anything?
yes to invest
Any additional comments?
The audio formats of books really need to be looked out for non fiction books, there is no point reading out tables and figures.
A great listen. Solid, practical "how to's","what to do's" and "what definitely not to do"!
Good read and relatively quick. I gave it 3 stars because I felt there was only one main point running through the book, which was to by low cost indexes. This was incredibly useful and very interesting to hear the statistics, but I feel that there could have been other points to learn. Nevertheless, it was a well written and easy book to pick up.
