Tony is great but this is very much for the American financial market. Always good to read Tony's books for the positive aspect but don't bother expecting too much if you're UK based in terms of the financial guidance.
Many many years ago I met Tony Robbins and he is probably one of the most amazing people I've ever met - yeah - he pretty much changed the way I think.
This book is pretty much commonsense in investing and should almost be called a bible to invest. I've been playing around in the stock market for years, just as a bit of fun - but still found this book to be filled with useful information and the title really screams out the truth: you have to be 'UNSHAKEABLE' when investing.
It's a good buy and an interesting read. I wouldn't have expected more from Tony Robbins - top man.
Not fussed on this book. It bores me a little. Only half way through. Its pretty much commonsense kinda stuff for most part although others may not have as much commonsense as me perhaps may enjoy more. 😉 overall it does no harm to brush up on this info.
OK, I've not completely finished this book yet, but it's all commonsense (which a lot of us don't have). _Everyone_ in their teens should read this (or something with the same message). I already know most of what is in here, but I really, really, really wish I had fully comprehended this 30 years ago. I didn't, even though I was a saver. This is a foundation of how to save.
So far though, I'm not sure it offers me much. I probably have more years behind me that in front of my now and there are possibly not that many years left for compounding and averaging over market cycles to do their job, given where markets are now (which is acknowledged in the book).
If your kids are not taught these fundamentals at school (something I think should be on the curriculum, but as far as I know is seldom taught), make sure you or your kids read this, then make sure they fully comprehend the implications and get started.
Again, I only wish I knew all this in my teens.
This book isn't anything revolutionary to me, now, at my age and I'm sure others cover the same knowledge (though the last 50% I've yet to read), but the fundamentals of it should be on every teens lesson list. Seriously. If you have kids or are at this age, you owe it to yourself to ensure they understand the fundamentals of this book.
