    Simple practical advice for anyone to achieve wealth

    Here's a book that insults all guru's in the market. 93% of all mutual fund managers have failed to beat the index, so Mac Barnes says, 'why try?' Invest for the long haul and don't bother watching CNBC. You will win. He also gives keen insight in other financial matters that I never considered, such as 'to lease or borrow.' You will be shocked at the conclusion. Mac isn't trying to wow you with great strategies and concepts. Just keep it simple, more simple than you ever realized. Excellent book. I did not put it down (and I am a financial consultant).
