Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids about Money -- That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!
Robert T. Kiyosaki
0446677450
January 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Personal-finance author and lecturer Robert Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective through exposure to a pair of disparate influences: his own highly educated but fiscally unstable father, and the multimillionaire eighth-grade dropout father of his closest friend. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his "poor dad" (whose weekly paychecks, while respectable, were never quite sufficient to meet family needs) pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his "rich dad" (that "the poor and the middle class work for money," but "the rich have money work for them"). Taking that message to heart, Kiyosaki was able to retire at 47. Rich Dad, Poor Dad, written with consultant and CPA Sharon L. Lechter, lays out his the philosophy behind his relationship with money. Although Kiyosaki can take a frustratingly long time to make...


Jim Cramer's Real Money: Sane Investing in an Insane World

0743224892


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
After telling the story of his own trading days in Confessions of a Street Addict, Cramer appeases fans hoping for advice on how to duplicate his success with their own investment portfolios. But not without some strong caveats: his approach requires devoting at least an hour a week to educating yourself about each stock you own. But since most pros are "rank amateurs themselves," anyone willing to do the work should consider getting in. Cramer breaks down the fundamentals of his investment approach, built on the twin principles of diversification and speculation: while most of your portfolio should contain reliables like oil, financials and blue-chip companies, 20% percent of your money should go toward a slightly riskier bet on a company's future ("owning a stock is a bet on the future, not the past"). He also explains...


Live Well on Less Than You Think : The New York Times Guide to Achieving Your Financial Freedom

0805077251


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Brock’s new title is something of a prequel to his previous book, Retire on Less Than You Think. Throughout this sensible guide to budget control, Brock’s mantra is "cutting expenses increases income," and he provides a wealth of suggestions for how to do so. He begins with a look at some Generation X couples, using their experiences to reflect on generational differences in saving and spending tactics; subsequent chapters give advice that members of any of the three main generations could use, beginning with cutting bad debt. Other subjects include home location, insurance policies, education costs, car payments, credit cards and retirement funds. For each topic, Brock illustrates his recommendations by applying them to hypothetical families and showing their huge savings; he also includes many tables...

The Complete Tightwad Gazette
Amy Dacyczyn
0375752250
Dec 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Though tightwad seems like a derogatory term, author Amy Dacyczyn wants to assure you that it's okay to be a penny-pincher. This self-styled "Frugal Zealot" wrote and published The Tightwad Gazette for over six years to spread the frugal gospel. Each issue contained tips from her personal experience and from her many readers. The wealth of information contained in all these issues has been compiled into one volume for the first time. You'll find literally thousands of ideas for saving money, from the simple or practical to the difficult or bizarre. On the simple, practical side, Dacyczyn advises would-be tightwads to keep track of price trends at several stores in a "price book" and to buy in bulk when prices are low. Other, stranger offerings include tips for turning margarine-tub lids into playing-card holders, old...


The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness
Dave Ramsey
0785263268
August 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Radio talk-show host and bestselling author Ramsey (Financial Peace) is less a financial analyst and more of a preacher, which explains both his popularity and the appeal of this book, which just might gain a wide audience. The bedrock of his system is simple: work hard, pay what you owe and stay out of debt. His main commandment is "Pay cash." He first exhorts the reader to take "baby steps," which are designed to build on each other: first, save $1,000 as an emergency fund; then, pay off all debts from smallest to largest; save a larger three-to-six-month emergency fund; finally, start to save for college and pay off your home mortgage. Ramsey understands the difficulty in putting these steps into action, and therefore packs his book with personal testimonials from everyday people who have used his system and...


Start Late, Finish Rich : A No-Fail Plan for Achieving Financial Freedom at Any Age
David Bach
0767919467
January 4, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The seventh book in seven years of the Finish Rich series (two million in print) is aimed at older readers who have neglected their savings. It reads like an infomercial script, brassily positive and unrelentingly motivational. Anyone can finish rich, says Bach (Automatic Millionaire, etc.), if they are willing to "spend less, save more, and make more." The bulk of the book describes a variety of tactics and strategies (many covered in his previous books) for accomplishing these three tasks. Readers of financial help books will have heard many of Bach's ideas before, but he does deliver a lion's share of solid advice in an entertaining format, and, for good measure, he throws in an occasional counterintuitive gem, such as why paying off credit card debt can be "a huge mistake." He also anticipates and overcomes...


The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America's Wealthy
Thomas J. Stanley
0671015206
September 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
How can you join the ranks of America's wealthy (defined as people whose net worth is over one million dollars)? It's easy, say doctors Stanley and Danko, who have spent the last 20 years interviewing members of this elite club: you just have to follow seven simple rules. The first rule is, always live well below your means. The last rule is, choose your occupation wisely. You'll have to buy the book to find out the other five. It's only fair. The authors' conclusions are commonsensical. But, as they point out, their prescription often flies in the face of what we think wealthy people should do. There are no pop stars or athletes in this book, but plenty of wall-board manufacturers--particularly ones who take cheap, infrequent vacations! Stanley and Danko mercilessly show how wealth takes sacrifice, discipline, and hard...


The Truth about Money 3rd Edition
Ric Edelman
0060566582
Jan 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Edelman, a talk-show financial planner, transfers a glib "on the air" style of communicating into print, with mixed results. Verbose to a fault, he often crosses the line between financial advice and advice based on his own values. For example, most individuals recognize the cost difference between public and private higher education and do not need Edelman's advice to discount the added value provided by a degree from a high-profile school. His counsel on choosing a mutual fund is essentially sound, but the reader is subjected to what might be a script for television rather than a concise explanation of the issues. The occasional references to the service provided by his own staff of planners suggest that this obfuscation is not unintentional. Better stick with Marshall Loeb's Lifetime Financial Strategies (LJ...

From the Author
To say that I got into a little trouble with credit-card debt is like saying the Titanic sprung a little leak. It took me more than a decade to fix my problem, but I did it. I paid back every nickel of a horrible six-figure unsecured debt-load and survived to write about it. This book, Live Your Life For Half The Price, is my response to readers who are already convinced they need to live below their means, and now they are ready to learn exactly how to do it.

The Only Guide to a Winning Bond Strategy You'll Ever Need : The Way Smart Money Preserves Wealth Today
Larry E. Swedroe, Joseph H. Hempen
0312353634
March 7, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Awkwardly organized and unduly complicated, this book provides a recitation of everything Swedroe and Hempen—co-principals of Buckingham Asset Management—know about bonds, which is a lot. The problem is that their book isn't pitched to a specific enough audience. Sophisticated investors may not mind the authors' heavy reliance on bondspeak and analytical jargon, but they will wonder why so many pages are devoted to explaining Series EE Savings Bonds. And novices will appreciate the extensive glossary, but they'll be frustrated by the book's lack of explanatory diagrams and its tendency to talk about concepts before properly introducing or defining them. The actual strategy discussion alluded to in the title is addressed only in the book's 25-page, penultimate chapter, where Swedroe and Hempen explain...


Nice Girls Don't Get Rich
Lois P. Frankel
044657709X
May 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
In the end, it is practical advice (words of tactical wisdom, that is) that gets us moving, motivated, and changing. Psychologist Frankel, author of Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office (2004), recognizes that fact by focusing on 75 "female" money mistakes--and how to correct them. For sure, there are a handful of different actions--getting in the money game, taking charge, spending wisely, learning money basics, saving and investing for the future, managing financial work potential, and playing it smart--that are then segmented into errors, no matter what the root causes. "Taking charge," for instance, admonishes those who don't trust their intuition and who let a deadbeat dad skirt his responsibilities, among others. Each reprimand, though, is accompanied by at least two coaching "how to overcome" tips and...

Through this story, the author reveals his proven investment principles, which he has taught and practiced around the world. Austin is a young man unprepared for a life-shattering experience. His deceased father, whom he never really knew, has left him a million dollars, with a promise of five million more IF Austin meets the strict conditions. He must invest the one million dollars and earn 15% a year for 3 years, or he will lose the five million. But he could easily lose the million he has by trying. Play it safe? Take the million and run. Or risk...


Cashflow Quadrant: Rich Dad's Guide to Financial Freedom

0446677477
April 1, 2000
Paperback
·
 
From AudioFile
This is one of the best of the Rich Dad Poor Dad audios. The core idea in this series is that being an investor or business owner gives one more freedom and a higher upside than being someone else's employee or being an owner-operator of a business. With vivid personal stories, the authors show that many people, including the author's "poor" dad (an educational administrator), choose working for others because of insecurity or misguided trust in organizations. One builds true financial freedom by accumulating assets that make money, especially rental property. Though others have offered this advice, it's clearer and more potent here, and worth listening to many times if your financial insecurity or complacency needs a push.
