We needed a place to start. It definatly gave us good ideas and suggestions. It gave us avenues to begain and carry through. Out of the three other books we baught at the same time, this one was the most help.

I have read this book four or five times. I get something new out of it every time. The writing is clear and relatively easy to understand, even for folks with a limited understanding of finance and investments. I am a retired CPA. I have read hundreds of books on accounting, finance, economics, and investing. This is the one book that I recommend for a beginner who wants to get his or her financial house in order and begin to lay out a plan to accumulate significant personal wealth.

I'm especially leary of finance books, and have learned that the best way to select books is to read a chapter or two at the book store before you buy. Three chapters into the book, the store closed, so I took it home with me and read it in two days. Tobias very clearly explains a number of issues that most people are simply unaware of, and makes it entertaining along the way. After I finished the book I was moved enough to check his web site and drop him a line. This book will make my XMAS shopping very easy this year.

Could eliminate all sections on puts, calls and other fancy investment tools and just say if you don't understand don't bother. Frugal list could be just a list not long explanations. Important sights could be a list. Alot of this book is capable of shorter summaries.
