    Upbeat wealth-making manual

    The staggering number of lottery tickets sold each year indicates that millions of people want to be wealthy but aren't necessarily willing to put in the required effort. Unless your lotto numbers come up or your father is a billionaire who hands you big bucks, instant prosperity is a fantasy. The road to riches actually is paved with hard work, long hours and a bit of luck. Moreover, says Richard Templar, wealthy people follow a basic set of principles that many other people tend to ignore. Templar's witty, informative and briskly written book outlines 100 catchy (and somewhat duplicative) rules as a framework for offering financial guidance. His advice may not get you a dinner invitation to Warren Buffett's house, but getAbstract believes it will help you understand what the rich do differently and how you can apply their rules for making money.

    Style without enough Substance

    The rules are short and sweet. I would have liked more meat than just potatoes. This book provides some good basic 'to do's' but lacks the depth that I was looking for. Someone looking for a basic road map with basic money 'words of wisdom' may find this beneficial.

    Useful Book

    The Rules of Money is a useful book for anyone interested in money. The book should be required reading for young people just starting out. I thought it was a bit ambiguous in some places hence the three stars.

    Read the Rules of Life First....

    ......this is an excellent Epilogue to the series - but rendered somewhat useless until the reader has mastered Templar's Rules of Life.
