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.
Far too many "success and fail stories" but little relevant information about investment and markets. He refers a lot about his previous book (basically you "must" buy it to really get the secret to financial freedom) so that means you won't get it here. Half the book is about his billionaire friends successfully managing funds overseeing billions and their philanthropic missions, but no technical analysis and real examples to learn from.
Long story short: - You won't find much relevant info regarding actual investment and budgeting towards a financial plan. - few good tips about self motivation (That's his field in my opinion) but only takes 2 pages out of hundreds. - informative chapter about insurances, fair enough. - if you want to read about the fantastic life of billionaires, then this is a book for you. -if you're looking to get to the point by reading about investment, financial planning, stock market, etc. You won't find much here.
I rarely rate and review books, but I've to say I'm quite disappointed with this one.
Not applicable if you want to apply to any other markets rather than USA-referring to hiring people he so generously mentions as service providers. Please please, do think of the world not just the USA. Otherwise, some eye-opening information there. But without being able to apply it, whats the point? Also, these service providers ask that one has minimum £100,000.00 to invest before you eat. Thanks, mate.
Very repetitive, throughout the book. Always referring to the same financial achievers but never getting to the actions that need to be used / taken to achieve any financial success. Keeps leading you on right to the end and then confirms that the necessary steps and solutions are in his next book. Got a sample of this from Amazon and believe it or not it started by repeating the last few chapters of the previous book. Hence, I did not purchase the follow up and am therefore not "unshakeable" and am not in possession of the "guide to financial freedom'.
