The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

. . . quite simply the best financial self-help book.

. . . quite simply the best financial self-help book.

In this new and updated edition of one of the biggest-selling financial-planning books ever, David Chilton simplifies the complex puzzles of personal finance and helps you achieve financial independence. With the help of his fictional barber, Roy, and a large dose of humor, Chilton shows you how to take control of your financial future–slowly, steadily, and with sure success. Chiltons plan (detailed in an entertaining story) is no get-rich-quick scheme, but it does make financial independence possible on nothing more than an average salary.

This third edition has been updated with assistance from the Arthur Andersen Corporation, and covers the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 and other recent developments.

Even if you consider yourself a financial basket case, Chilton explains how you can easily put an effective financial plan into action.

We bought this for my wifes class as a required reading. I dont have any clue why it would be required. Its got an interesting story behind it, but the financial info is clearly out of date. There have been a lot of changes since this book was published that make every other point archaic. It must have been great 10-15 years ago, but not for me.

Good Evergreen Investment Advice for First-time Investors, but Still Needs Work

The Wealthy Barber (3rd edition) is a pretty good read if youre just trying to figuring out how and where to start investing your income. Its divided up into lessons, where each chapter describes a different step and strategy one could (and should) take to start building their retirement nest egg. All these chapters are completely useful and applicable, so if thats what youre looking for, then this might be the book for you–especially if youd prefer a more narrative and entertaining approach to picking up a few good financial tips.

– Although some of the tips are super easy to pick up, some will still go over your head. In my opinion, that defeats the whole purpose of the simplistic, investing-for-dummies approach to the book. I understand the types given are essential tips, so dont get me wrong there. Its just that some BASIC tips are fleshed out in 10 pages, and some ADVANCED tips are glossed over in a paragraph.

– With all the resources we have at our fingertips (aka the dang Internet), all the advice in this book could be found in a single personal finance blog post. I know, I know, that can be applied to about everything. But, its important to remember this is an extremely short book as it is, so I would have liked a little more susbstance.

– Dont be fooled by the Updated 3rd Edition part of the title. Its crazy out of date, so be forewarned! The financial tips are still applicable for sure, but just know homes used the examples are going to cost $90,000. If that bothers you, pick up the updated version (2011):The Wealthy Barber Returns : Dramatically Older and Marginally Wiser, David Chilton Offers His Unique Perspectives on the World of Money

All that said, its a solid 3 out of 5 for me. It had some great advice for first-time investors, but I think theres probably some better resources out there.

A modern, expanded adaptation of The Richest Man in BabylonKind of an adaptation of The Richest Man in Babylon. Set in a more modern time than TRMIB, and written in plain English. Same basic premise that several of these types of books follow: Save some of your income every payday, invest it wisely, save for retirement, live below your means. It is an excellent book, very easy, fun read. The only critique I have, is that he kind of glosses over the retirement lesson. I think the author didnt know where to go with it; there are so many different formulas for retirement income, you can hardly blame him. Still, this being an entry level type book, he could have given some sort of percentage to save, as a starting point for new to personal finance folks. Chilton also covers insurance, some tax info, and a little real estate. Although not a deep guide by any means, it is a fun to read book; you cant wait to read about the next lesson the characters get from the barber. If I were to give a friend, who was new to personal finance, a book recommendation or two, it would be The Wealthy Barber, and The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey.

Buy it for your kids/grandkids/spouse/whoeverI got the 1st version of this from my grandparents eons ago after they saw something on PBS, and Ill tell you what. There arent many books that change a persons life, but this one did. This book completely changed my understanding of finances and while being in the 8th grade, I now had a better understanding of wealth generation and financial myths than many people 5x my age…. or so I thought.

Flash forward 25ish years later – NKOTB is back out on the road. Despite that clear sign of the end times…

Yes! I was right – the principles in this book still hold true, and people are still falling for much of the commonly-espoused financial advice that simply isnt true. I bought this book for my wife for us to read together – shes heard me reference it so many times over the years, she just had to see what the buzz was about….
