There are no shocking new insights in this book, it's more like a collection of quick little essays written by someone with a lot of common sense and experience when it comes to managing money. A decent and easy read if you want a general overview of how to manage (i.e. save) your money, but don'...

ok. I must be a financial geek - I loved this book.
A big change from his previous book is his view of mutual funds - and choosing a good fund family with good fund managers that have a good track to beat the market - it doesn't work. Get index funds as the costs of cdn mutual funds are way too hi...

I was very interested in what he'd have to say, over 20 years after "The Wealthy Barber". Not nearly as cohesive or eye-opening, but still nice to get a modern take from him.
Things to remember:
"I can't afford it."
Save 10-15% of my gross income.
Reminder: what percentage of my working-years income...

3.5/5; 4 stars B+
I read David Chilton's first book, , about 25 years ago when it first came out and I was starting my career and having thoughts about a 'financial future'. A lot of his general, but sound advice, has stood me in good stead and, although I read lots of other people's books too,...

I've always liked David Chilton ever since watching him on Dragon's Den. I bought this book ages ago but haven't read it until now. For a Canadian who is new to personal finance and financial concepts, and doesn't really know where to begin with their own finances, this is a perfect book to intro...

I really liked this book.
I didn't give it a 5, because it just didn't hook me like the original wealthy barber did. I loved the first half, but the last half where he gives his more random thoughts was sub par.
The topics were excellent, the advice current and helpful.
I especially like his thought...

Maybe The Wealthy Barber was a better read, but I didn't read it and instead jumped into this "sequel." The financial advice ranged from stupidly simple to doesnt-apply-to-me-I'm-not-Canadian. That wouldn't have been as bad, but Chilton tries to be funny in his writing. He's about as funny as a s...

This isn't so much a book on investing; it;s more like a guide to Canadian financial planning. Although guide wouldn't be the best word either, because this is mostly just a discussion of many different possibilities and actions.
This would've have been a Godsend a few years earlier, any young Ca...

I have not read the prequel and I have prior experience researching personal finance (TFSA, RRSP, ETFs, credit cards, Ledger CLI, Canadian Couch Potato, Antifragile).
I found the first half of the book really boring from a technical side although it was amusing. I think it is effective to really d...

I thought that the book was OK. I have read other finance books with better information and a plan on how to not only get out debt but also to plan for my retirement.
The chapter called "A Borrowed Approach to Borrowing" almost made me stop reading the book only 25% into the book. He suggested th...
