Life is getting more and more expensive. The cost of living keeps going up, pensions have dwindled and are taking longer than ever to pay out, and people are having to work more and longer for the same (or lower) quality of life. The postapocalyptic recession has left many businesses having to start again.
This book will help you live a low-cost high life and is a 25-year voyeuristic journey on how to become wealthy and successful in these most unique times.
In listening to this book now, you'll discover:
Mark Homer became a financially free multimillionaire businessman investor by the time he was in his early 30s. In this unique book he shows you in his renowned analytical, detailed, and controversially skeptical nature how you can realistically achieve the low-cost high life for the long term in the shortest possible timeframe.

"Very Low Cost High Life"
Managed to listen to Marks story whilst driving mostly. Lots of information to take in. I have to listen to the CD again as there were parts which were sooo funny... I missed bits and didn't want to rewind I just wanted to hear more of Marks life. Loved it.... More please
"brilliantly humorous and informative"
very informative with great humour underpinning it. If only I had book to listen to when I started out in my career.
Stuart, Marks father
yes it was, first time ever!
"He could do so much better"
Mark is a property genius and a teacher. There are some good tips in here but not much more than money supermarket and rich dad poor dad combined. The real shame is I know he has so much more specific knowledge that he hasn't shared. Like many others in this sector do. However there seems to be a number of other property investors moving into education that give away all their tips and my lower review is based on him holding back a lot more useful information.
Also this reader is terrible, and sounds like he would best suit reading the beano. Thanks anyway, it was still enjoyable.
"Great book to start the journey of wealth creation"
This book really helps to cement the sound principles of what is required to build wealth. Written by someone that walks the talk.
"Half a book wasted on bitter moaning"
He spent literally half the book bad mouthing this Chris, who he worked for at Acorn. I think this time could be better spent on sharing something useful with the listener.
It was spoken in very 'Radio Ad' like manner. Reminded me of something from an old Tesco advert or from a radio station. No matter what the material discussed the tone was always the same and I don't feel that he told the story well. After about 20 minutes I found his voice irritating and just wanted the book to end.
I feel let down by this book. At the risk of sounding like a complete contrarian (as other people seem to love it) I don't feel that it is very informative for the time spent listening to it.
Literally half of this audiobook is spent slagging off his old boss Chris, who yes does sound like a prat but the fact that the author spends so much time badmouthing him and referring to the way 'not to do business'.
This makes me think less of the author and I feel that maybe he should have either confronted Chris properly (as his now business partner did) at the time or go into therapy maybe before wasting 4 hours of my time. He could have just as easily condensed this into a short 20 minutes tops, to convey how not to do business.
I found the book hard to listen to as much of the advice seemed very basic and obvious. Maybe a good read for an absolute beginner in business but it should literally be chopped in half to save the listener time.
Sorry to be negative about what I'm sure a lot of people love, but I'm not sold on this one. :/
With this book I gained understanding of financial, Mark ensured that everything was well illustrated to the minimum details, which help me identify my own limiting beliefs regarding managing my own finances.
The Author made clear that we can become responsible for doing and controlling our finances in sophisticated ways without using too much technical jargon, which makes it accessible for everyone, including my son that is only 12 years old.
Yes I did. He gave emphasis where he could, nonetheless on a personal note I like Mark's voice better since I had the opportunity to listen to many of his talks.
Yes, it made me realise how important it is for to gain financial control in order to improve my life and loved ones, whilst making a contribution towards others.
Next time I would love to hear Mark Homers' voice instead to give a personal touch to the book.
"Takes a while to get going but ends strong"
Worth a go!
The last hour probably had the most use and lots of little tips. The first half of the book was a bit long and biographical.
Worth sticking with as it gets better as it goes along. Some useful insights and tips and you certainly feel the approaches could be copied.
I really wanted to like this book. The first part about his father was entertaining and seemed like the English version of Rich Dad Poor Dad. However, the majority of the book was then about his hopeless boss, and obvious tips about managing employees in a company. This doesn't apply to me and wasn't what I was expecting from the title of the book. It also could've been summarised in a short chapter without the seemingly bitter anecdotes about the boss (as other reviewers have commented on). I gave up after this section so don't know if it got better in the last quarter.
"Interesting but not Life Changing."
This is an interesting book, but not one that I would recommend as a first read on money-management. There is either too much detail and I would have to add sour grapes about his fall out with a previous employer. (Sorry Mark, some of information was personal and should have been left out.) Or, in the second half of the book, he gallops too quickly over a number of concepts without taking the time to explain how they work.
This in my opinion is interesting, but is unlikely to be life-changing because of the lack of detail. I suppose this may be deliberate to whet the readers/listeners appetite for the other books and seminars that Mark and his partner have written and run.
love this story line. informative but i now want the hard copy too! thanks Mark!
