Publisher's Summary

In The Automatic Millionaire, David Bach shares the secret to becoming a millionaire. The Automatic Millionaire starts with the powerful story of an average American couple (he's a low-level manager, she's a beautician), whose joint income never exceeds $55,000 a year, who somehow manage to own two homes debt-free, put two kids through college, and retire at 55 with more than $1 million in savings. Through their story you'll learn the surprising fact that you cannot get rich with a budget! You must have a plan to pay yourself that is totally automatic, a plan that will automatically secure your future and pay for your present. What Makes The Automatic Millionaire unique:

You don't need to make a lot of money
You don't need a budget
You don't need willpower
You don't need to be that interested in money
You can set up the plan in an hourThis one little audiobook has the power to secure your financial future. Do it once, the rest is automatic!

Common sense, but...

I read the previous review and almost did not buy the book. However, some positive info I have read in other places won out and I bought it, and am very glad I did.

Sure it is common sense, but what financial advice out there isn't? As I was listening, it hit me that, although I have not saved nearly as much as I would like, what I have saved was done through the automatic methods described in the book (in my case retirement plans and our house).

The stories are not nearly so pointless as at least one other reviewer would have you believe, and it gave me a new perspective on that old adage "pay yourself first" as well as using automatic methods to overcome one's weakness at sticking to a budget.

I liked it so much I bought a copy for my son, who has been married for a week. This book is well worth the time and money...

Wonderfully Easy Concept

This book is an easy read about an even easier concept. The accumulation of wealth couldn't be easier. I highly recommend this book for those of us, like myself, who are young and haven't saved much for retirement. This book was meant as a wakeup call to people like myself, and I'll tell you, it sure woke me up to reality.

Sure, for those like the first reviewer who have had no problem with saving money, this book would be a waste of time, but for me it was the best book I've read in a long time.

This gave no new content from other books in this category, but delivered it in a less interesting way, with most of the actionable information being so outdated the companies recommended don’t even exist. I’ll save you 4hrs right now, set up a direct debit for your retirement savings, your home loan, for your credit card debts, pay extra, pay as soon as the pay check hits your account. Pay off debt then save more than you think you can, start small gradually increase. Hardly 4hrs worth of content.

Great book! content is relevant for most people

The only thing I wish is that there were more resources for people that live outside the United States
