Did you ever go on a class field trip - the zoo, a museum, a park, and find yourself learning more, simply because you were outside a stuffy classroom setting? Here the trip is to a barbershop, and the potentially intimidating and/or boring topic of financial planning is softened and simplified to make learning fun. The Wealthy Barber has been written primarily for those who aren't fond of numbers, charts and graphs, and who usually shy away from learning about financial planning. While this may leave serious number-crunchers wanting more, it does present the basics of financial planning in a way that many people will be able to absorb and appreciate for the first time. Written with a great deal of humor and believable dialogue, it explains the virtues of paying yourself first, wills, life insurance, retirement savings, purchasing a home and minimizing your income tax. If you or someone you know wants to learn more about financial planning but have lacked the confidence to proceed, here's the place to begin. Larry Hehn, author of Get the Prize: Nine Keys for a Life of Victory

    Well Done!!!

    This easy to read book provides an excellent foundation for financial well being. It hits three major investing principals; paying yourself first, dollar cost-averaging, and TIME.

    Great educational book

    This was an easy-to-read, very educational book for the 'financial illiterate'. The background setting of the book makes it enjoyable to read and puts financial stability 'how-to' into lay-mans terms. Recommend for those wondering 'how to start' planning for the future!

    great book

    I can't believe there isn't any other reviews on this book. Great book to read and it has some comedy in it to which makes it so easy to read.
