I'm usually very cynical when it comes to this sort of book. I saw it as being a bit of a Rich Dad Poor Dad
type book with a bit more of a UK edge. It's not nearly as well written as Rich Dad Poor Dad and some of it's Plan B tips are simple things you can find online for free.
My main concern about this book was the quality of the writing. Being self-published I can only presume the writer didn't bother to pay a proofreader. Not because it's littered with spelling mistakes but because it labours the same points repeatedly. Not throughout the book as you might expect to see a point re-affirmed, but in the next paragraph of a chapter. Just when you think you've got the point and are ready to hear the next one he bludgeons you with it again.
To give you a glimpse into the wonderful sort of advice this book contains one of the chapters explains the joys of compounding. To explain this the author uses the old wheat and chessboard mathematical problem. Instead of the chess board we use the month of February and instead of wheat a 1p piece. He explains how if we can just double that penny for every day in February by the 28th (it's a non-leap year, don't get greedy) we will have over £1m. Of course, he doesn't explain how anybody can double a given amount of money on a given day. This alone as a concept would be accepted if he did not then constantly refer back to this as almost scientific proof of his methods later in the book. "Remember the magical month of February" he will say, as if it had actually happened.
If this is to be used as motivational fodder for simpletons then very well, but I bought this book under very different auspices. If you want motivational books, try Rich Dad's Increase Your Financial IQ: It's Time to Get Smarter with Your Money
. If you want drivel, this is for you.
I'd really rather I hadn't bought this book, if it was £1.99 I might not have returned it for a refund. But at over £6, it just isn't worth it.
