I bought this because I wanted to see what a financial-planning 'workbook' would look like in practice. I am a financial-planner and am interested in interactive structures that help clients take control of their financial affairs.

Overall, I would say that it is very thorough and the structure is undoubtedly a help for the extremely self-motivated individual who is determined to get their finances in order. The text is peppered with americanisms, some of which don't translate very immediately into a UK framework, but on the whole most of the book is quite relevant.

As someone who deals with 'normal' investors on a daily basis, I would criticise the book for its length. It is a BIG exercise to complete the whole thing, and if one were to skip sections (eg. 'The FinishRich File Folder System') on the basis that life is too short to create thirteen labelled folders at the commencement of the process, I would then worry that I had missed something of strategic importance.

I think that this book works for a rather select group of people who are extremely self-motivated in this area. For most 'normal' folk, I would guess that something that was conceptually more straightforward, and shorter, would be more helpful. Having said that, given the generally crapulent nature of the nation's finances, I do welcome the kind of approach that David Bach has taken here. He does deserve some kind of award!

HASH(0x8fa38ec4) out of 5 stars If you don't need to be motivated, just told what to do, BUY 23 May 2005
By B. Rob - Published on
Format: Paperback
I did not buy the book, read the book, or know anything about the book until well after I was done with the WORKBOOK. The only thing I was interested in was saving more money and making my money, which is lazy my nature, work harder for me. 11 months later: An IRA, 401k, "rainy day fund", started saving for a house, and just over 10 thousand dollars of credit card debt GONE! If there is a book, I would imagine it wouldn't be as useful as the workbook, since the workbook basically tells you exactly what to do to start "finishing rich".

After reading a few other personal finance books (ie. quadrants, and rich dad stuff), I was disappointed in the fact that those books didn't actually instruct you on what to do, more than give you the ideas and philosophy to do things. I DID NOT need motivation, I needed a step-by-step plan to follow, and this book did just that.

I found the Automatic millionaire workbook a good tool for learning to make things more automatic (automate your bills and such, no more writing checks)but the "Finish Rich Workbook" is really the only, and best, tool you need to get started making a better life for yourself--without having to increase your income or live on noodles and government cheese.

HASH(0x8f978ccc) out of 5 stars Perfect for those who need a simple, clear financial plan 16 Jan. 2004
By Kcorn - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you already read financial books, this isn't for you (you'll already know everything in this book) But for the rest of us, this is perfect- a clear, easy and, most importantly, personalized plan for achieving financial goals and staying out of debt, achieving economic security and retiring comfortably. Bach's examples are inspiring and he has tips for controlling expenses - from waiting 48 hours before buying anything that costs $100.00 or more to showing how saving as little as 3.33 a day can add up to significant savings over time. His graphs and tables are very easy to follow and his worksheets are equally simple.
Perfect for anyone wanting to save more, from students just out of college to families in a budget crunch.

HASH(0x8f9c0c48) out of 5 stars Everyone should do this workbook! 16 Aug. 2004
By uber cool - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have read a lot of money books and this book by far was the most helpful, easy, current personal finance book I have read. It is interactive and makes you write down your financial details in depth so you can really see what is your financial situation and apply the techniques given by David Bach.

It also gives a new perspective of what your goals and values are and how you should plan your finances to acheive your goals and BE the person you want to be.

It is very thorough and gives REAL specific information eg. was so helpful, numbers and websites of investment companies etc.

It allows for people with all types of goals and incomes to improve thier financial knowledge and situation in thier own terms.

I have also read automatic millionare which was good too but this interative workbook will give you a kick in the pants to actually make you change the way you deal with your money. Writing it down makes all the difference.

HASH(0x8f978b1c) out of 5 stars I Wasted Ten Bucks 26 Jan. 2005
By Mike Kern - Published on
Format: Paperback
My wife and I read "Start Late, Finish Rich." We figured our latte factors, our expenses, our debt, our net worth, and so on. We worked out a plan. Then I spent ten bucks on this workbook and discovered we'd already done everything in it.

If you've got the original book, you don't need to waste your money on this.

HASH(0x8f9724d4) out of 5 stars Balancing YOUR values and money management 19 April 2003
By LegalBeagle - Published on
Format: Paperback
We gave this book to each of our 7 children. Within a week, one child had reported back that their family had discovered how they could save $1500 a year using the principles found in the latte factor.
This book teaches money management skills that are based on one's personal values. It takes one through excercises designed to help one identify what values are important, and then based on those values develop financial goals. For example, if missionary work is an important goal, this book will help one develop a plan for saving towards that goal. Mr. Bach emphasizes that YOUR values should drive your financial planning.
