As I watch the news, I am intrigued by the different opinions about money and how to solve our Nation's financial problems. While the government and other "so-called" financial gurus are offering band aids, The 8 Pillars of Financial Greatness provides the cure. In this book, Brian Ford has taken the confusion out of personal finance and provided me with a simple plan for my family's complete money happiness. This book is exactly what I needed to find balance in my life and enduring financial peace.

This is just what I needed to get me on track financially. I've read the Rich Dad books and this was way more helpful for a person like me who isn't just obsessed with money. The way this book is organized and the breadth of subjects covered really helped me have a clear picture of what to do step-by-step to succeed financially. And I feel like after reading this book I can actually accomplish what it teaches. A very easy but compelling read. -Rachel, Utah

I love the subject of personal finance, but so many of the books I read about it are too extreme in their views. I wish I had read this book a long time ago and gollowed its advice. The 8 Pillars discussed here are common sense, time-tested principles that too many people neglect these days. If more of us lived what the author teaches, the world wouldn't be in such a financial mess. What I like most about this book is how clearly the concepts are explained, and how much emphasis is given to taking action. The "Doer's Checklists" plus the way the author kept refocusing me on my values and encouraging me to keep going were really refreshing. If you want a straightforward manual on getting your finances in order and feeling good about your future, pick this one up. It will be my gift to several family members this Christmas!

I am not really into personal finance, but I must say that this book has changed my life through the way I view money. I never thought financial education could be so fun. The personal stories, clear examples, and interesting graphics made this a quicker read than I expected. Amber

This book was actually referred to me by two other people before I decided to check it out. All I can say is it's refreshing to find a finance book that teaches not just the whats and the hows of money management, but also the whys. A perfect blend of education and motivation. This book meets the needs of the doer who wants to see results as well as the thinker who wants to do things right. This is a book with the kind of direction and advice that every family should be using--especially now! Peter K.

I really liked this book - The 8 Pillars lays out a step-by-step plan for mastering the fundamentals of financial success. I enjoyed how the emphasis is on specific and immediate action steps you can take to achieve personal greatness not just financial greatness.

This book makes timeless financial principles accessible to regular families.
