What's the secret to becoming a millionaire?

In The Automatic Millionaire, David Bach shares that secret.

The Automatic Millionaire starts with the powerful story of an average American couple -- he's a low-level manager, she's a beautician -- whose joint income never exceeds $55,000 a year, who somehow manage to own two homes debt-free, put two kids through college, and retire at fifty-five with more than $1 Million in savings. Through their story you'll learn the surprising fact that you cannot get rich with a budget! You must have a plan to pay yourself first that is totally automatic, a plan that will automatically secure your future and pay for your present.

What Makes The Automatic Millionaire Unique:

• You don't need to make a lot of money

• You don't need a budget

• You don't need willpower

• You don't need to be that interested in money

• You can set up the plan in an hour

This one little audiobook has the power to secure your financial future. Do it once -- the rest is automatic! Download and start listening now!

    " Finally! A simple financial plan I can follow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven Veach | 2/20/2014

    " Another rudimentary personal finance book. It's okay, but it is not a comprehensive plan like Your Money or Your Life and Buckets of Money. It could be a good starting point, but why bother. Just read the two titles I just mentioned and that will be all you have to do. For what it's worth, though, it's a pretty good book. My biggest problem with it is I don't drink coffee. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary-Ellen | 2/12/2014

    " And easy, easy read. With great lessons for saving money and planning for the bigger picture without breaking your bank in the short term. The only thing is, isn't it sad that nowadays a million dollars is no longer all that much? Well, still a useful, easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawnetta | 2/5/2014

    " Great financial book. A quick read, but he is good at connecting on a more emotional level. If you've read other financial books, he's not really teaching you anything new; but he helps you to make those connection internally so you want to live the lessons he's talked about in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 2/4/2014

    " This book was pretty good as far as financial advice books go but I'm still looking for the book that has the advice specifically for my situation of med. school debt and buying a fixer upper. Too bad you can't check out a financial planner from the library. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 2/4/2014

    " Suze Orman assisted me with so many emotional hang-ups I had about money and David Bach pushed me to make something happen. I bought my first home all by myself, got out out of debt, car was paid in full, etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Downs | 1/25/2014

    " Practical advice for investing. Bach takes a behavioral approach to saving and investing. I was stunned to learn how many Americans do not sign up for their employer's 401(k) plans! Definitely a book that college students should read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Rizzo | 1/22/2014

    " The first book anyone who wants to take control of their financial life should read. Its the ultimate guide to retiring financially independent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 1/15/2014

    " If you would like to save money and build wealth especially with your mortgage, read this book. It is a very quick read and gives a lot of great advice. It is still very hard to do (like get %10 yearly return on your money) but the concept is spot on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie | 1/15/2014

    " My favorite personal finance book. Clear, easy to read, simple steps and totally practical. I bought a house because of this book. Amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 1/2/2014

    " I like David Bach...his premise? Pay yourself first...not at the end of the month IF you happen to have something left over...PAY YOURSELF FIRST!!! That's it! If it's taken out before you ever see it, you will never miss it. Good, practical book. It actually makes you believe it's possible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morna | 12/19/2013

    " I read this book on the recommendation of a millionaire friend. It didn't make me a millionaire, but it did help me to offload a lot of financial chores to automatic mode. "

    " The main point of this book is brilliant: namely that you should automate your personal finances. The trouble is - this book could have been a pamphlet. It was very painful to read because it waffled on forever and repeated itself constantly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheri | 4/25/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 8/11/2012

    " It's been a few years since I've read this book, but I remember being impressed by the advice to automate your finances, and I've done that to an extent. I could probably benefit from a re-read of this one, but it would have to get in line behind so many others on my to-read list. "
