Are You Ready to Be Rich? If you want to get rich, if you want to be wealthier than you are today, you really need to do only four things. That's right, just four things:

  • You need to make a decent living;
  • You need to spend less than you make;
  • You need to invest the money you don't spend so that it can work as hard for you as you're working for yourself; and
  • You need to protect yourself and this financial world you've built so that a disaster, big or small, doesn't take it all away from you.

Everything else is just window-dressing - the fees and how to avoid them, the advisors and how to hire them, the deals, the scams, the ins, the outs. They are all interesting. Some of them are even quite important. But until you have conquered the heart of the matter, they are all minutia.

The four cornerstones, by contrast, are the meat and potatoes of your financial life. If you do those things today, you'll start getting rich tomorrow. And once you feel set financially, you'll be able to start focusing on the truly important things in life.

    " I read quite a few personal finance books, and only keep the best ones for my own library. This isn't the very best I've read, but it's definitely up there. Would definitely recommend. "

    " I have saving intentions but find it difficult to make it work with the family. This is a great book for motivation and to discover small ways to pinch those pennies. There are good logical examples of how to cut some unnecessary spending that I could share that weren't "off the deep end". This is a good read for many different financial situations, the only criteria is some sort of income, whether large or small. I'd recommend it. "

    " A lot of things I already knew, but it was good at motivating me and giving an action list. I was uncomfortable how it used the b-word. A little unnecessary. I was reading the book on the plane and some 9 year old boys kept staring at the book until I realized they were looking at the b-word on it. "

    " Excellent book for learning how to manage your money at any age and with as little or much as you have in your account! The "map to millions" plans in the book make it easy to see what you can do with your money! "
