Book Description

Some people seem to find money so easy. Easy to make, easy to hold on to and easy to grow. The rest of us just find it easy to spend.


The Rules of Wealth are the guiding principles that will help you generate more money, handle it more wisely, grow it more effectively and know how to use it to live a happier, more fulfilling, more comfortable life.


So, if you dream of having enough money never to worry about it ever again, you need the The Rules of Wealth.

Product Description


"an indispensable guide to the nature of money and personal finance" - The Times

From the Back Cover

A personal code for prosperity.

Money – it makes the world go round. We all secretly believe that it can make us happy.  After all, wouldn't it be great to have enough of it so you don't need to worry? Enough to buy that dream house, car, or simply enough so you don't have to think about what you're spending. So how do the wealthy get rich? Is it luck? Or do they know something we don't?


Yes they do, they know The Rules of Wealth.


Richard Templar is back and this time he will make you rich.  In his inimitable wry style, he reveals the simple golden rules that create wealth and make it grow.


The Rules of Wealth analyses the behaviours, the mind-sets, the lifestyles, and the financial know-how behind becoming a richer, happier and more prosperous you.

5.0 out of 5 stars reassuringly wealthy 17 Aug. 2007
By Gavino
I've always been a bit scared of money, I don't really understand the investment market and I'm never sure which way it is wise to jump - especially at the moment. I've always shied away from books about personal finance as when i read the first page my head starts to spin. But having enjoyed the other Rules books I thought I'd give this one a go and I've found it fantastic. Really helped me understand how the wealthy think and simple things I can do to have more money. There's a lot of common sense in here "Spend less than you earn" but it's the kind of common sense that you need to be reminded to put into practice. So if you want to be wealthier then this book will certainly put you on the right track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life Improving 25 Feb. 2007
This book is designed to train your mind to work in a way that rich & wealthy people do. By re-programming your mind to stick to the rules, your finances will improve, even if you are not looking make loads of cash. It becomes automatic and you are suprised at how much money you are left with at the end of each month without realising you've been doing it. May not turn your life around but you WILL be better off!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Rules book yet? 5 Feb. 2007
I have read all the "Rules of" books published and they do share some core ideas, as well as a very consistent style. I did however feel that the Rules of Wealth contained lots of new material and would strongly recommend this new member of the dynasty. It is not a classic "get rich quick" text, it is much better than that!

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather shallow 29 Mar. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is mildly entertaining but does not really have anything important to say in how to get wealthy. The struggles of self worth and other psychological problems one encounters when trying to increase wealth were obviously never a problem for the author and are not addressed at all. The book is a list of 1 page long statements such as work hard, don't borrow money, etc. There is little that you wouldn't have heard somewhere else in everyday bland conversation.I was disappointed in this book since it had been recommended on jerrold mundis' website who wrote 'earn what you deserve' and which gives the subject matter a much more serious treatment and who is someone who has come from being deep in debt to being wealthy.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Rules of Wealth - Richard Templar 21 Jan. 2007
This is no get rich quick book for those looking for an easy fix to their money problems. It is, however, a guide book for those wanting to set of down the right road to massing wealth - and you're never too old to do this it appears. If you follow this book, you will end up richer if you follow all the strategies in the book. Although, it's not going to happen over night, next week or two three months down the line. It's a long term investment.

It's not for lazy people, who want to make it rich quick, so save your money. If your keen and real want to be rich, buy the book, follow Richard's advice and hopefully, you could feature in the UK 100 wealthiest people in several year time. You might even beat me...!!

A very useful guide to putting you on the right track for wealth

5.0 out of 5 stars A book about money i could understand 11 Sept. 2007
Most books about money are impossible to read and hard to understand. This one is different. Entertaining - in fact downright funny in places - and wise it's not really about money at all but about you and your attitude. I love the Rules books and this one is as good as the others i've read.

4.0 out of 5 stars simple rules easy to understand 20 Dec. 2007
This is for the financial amateurs amongst us. Those who need some basic guidelines on how to get wealthier. Most of this is common sense, but worth following, examining compound interest, patching up financial leaks and not scrimping on that capuccino (you won t make a significant savings and you will just feel miserable).

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the price for advice inside. 30 Jan. 2015
By steve
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I came across this in my local library. Read it and liked it so much i figured it deserved a place on my shelves. Its a keeper. As others have mentioned this is not a how to get rich such as 'how to spot the next big share etc etc, how to invest etc'. Its about attitude, common sense stuff and habits that will enable you to keep focused on your goals and help you achieve them. I find I return to the book, dipping in and out, to help keep my focus on things. Its also an entertaining read. For the price of a couple of lattes its well worth it!
