The author tells a story that is easy to identify with. I have met people with massive disadvantages, who have overcome them to go on to make a great success in the field of property investment. The author is right that you Could do it to. Many of us could have also strayed down a wrong path. He tells a fascinating story of fruit machines. These machines by now will be very rusty as his scam involved "coins" made of ice. The book is a mixed bag. As a text book to tell you how to make money in property it is lacking in detail and range. It doesn't really offer any other strategy other than property investment and as you will see by other reviews it has left people bemused about how it would work in their circumstances. He also uses the Pareto principle very carelessly, like it is a proven rule of physics or mathematics, rather than a rule of thumb generalised observation of statistical occurence. So his assertion that 20% of readers will become financially free would not happen. However, I have observed the success stories of countless people who have entered the field with more in depth knowledge support and preparedness, So it is not the pie in the sky fantasy that many might think.

Where the book is strong is that it has a plainly written yet powerful message. Superficially it might be observed that quotes appear on every other page which looks like a book half written and half lifted from other people. However, take the trouble to read it and you will find that the writing gives very strong support to well chosen and powerful quotations.He also uses a thought provoking quadrant in the style of Robert Kiwosaki, who is of course in the style of the lesser known Keith Cunningham. The quadrant asserts that you are in one of the following situations: 1) very little time and very little money 2) lots of time but very little money 3) very little time but lots of money and 4) lots of time and lots of money. The author tells you what particular trap he was in and invites you to reflect on whether your own situation is working for you. As part of a balanced learning, I would recommend the book. He explains such things as goals, broken down into measured and timed intervals, quite well and once again the education we receive in schools is challenged, as we are not taught how to prepare for our financial futures. You may be stirred but not shaken.

Bruce suggests right from the start that ANYONE on an average wage can follow his simple method and build a portfolio in property simply by setting aside 20% of your gross income. I worked out that an average deposit on a buy to let would take me around 50 years to build on my salary and over 5 years on the suggested 50K. He says it's not get-rich-quick but seriously, this will only work if you have heaps of spare cash to start with.

I've read a lot of these types of books but this one gives a refreshing and insightful direction. Great information and a great story. Whatever your financial situation there will be something in this book for you. I would highly recommended it!

A really inspiring story and an enjoyable read. The information inside is very simple to put into practice, it really is amazing you don't get taught it elsewhere. Being self employed I have always had concerns about not having a company pension plan in place but now I realise I can do so much better.
