Sound advice, but...

This is a good book, with some solid ideas. The detail with which he explains his theories is both good and bad. For one thing, in the printed version, there are a lot of charts, so in the audiobook the narrator reads off all the repetitive stats from the charts in a very long, monotonous way. In the text version, you would just glance at the chart, get the gist, and move the audiobook, you have to listen to it for over 5 minutes sometimes. A little annoying, because you get the concept after the first few examples, then have to listen to him drone on through the whole chart.

Also, a lot of the advice relates directly to Americans only. I am Canadian, and though I found the general theories sound, the specific advice (401k, etc) was not as helpful.

All in all, a worthy buy.

I loved David Bach's Automatic Millionare and the associated audio book - it tanslated well and was engaging.

This book would be a great read but the audio book was horrific! The author narrates through the charts in the book in a monotone voice for what seems to be unending minutes. The book and topic are well worth reading - but skip the audio book - - - I had to turn it off after the 3rd or 4th chart out of sheer boredom.

Buy the book and not the audio version for this one! - or at least read the book first
