Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I highly recommend this book to families who are aware that their financial education is a must to achive! This guide clearly explains a strategy to accumulate wealth suitable for any person, affordable to achieve, because it solves the human emotional nature of meeting our immediate needs that prevents us from saving and investing in the long term, so that if you follow these guidelines you will succeed. In this updated edition the recommendations have been adapted to the latest internet technologies, therefore what I liked is that it includes a video program and other extra resources accessible through the web. Definitely this book is worth its price, as only the right information, and if you dare to apply it in your life, has the power to be transformative. In addition you do not require willpower, or go through a process to confront your cultural programming or beliefs about money, since it is there where lies the great feature of the method by doing it an automated process! My gratitude to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book
