Publisher's Summary

Missed Fortune 101 is like no other money guide. Author and financial strategist Douglas R. Andrew dares to question the conventional wisdom on personal finance that most people accept. He shows you how to seize financial opportunities you never knew existed. With Missed Fortune 101 as your guide, you'll never view your house, your mortgage, your retirement plans, your investments, and your other assets the same way again.

    Overall
    "Do Not Listen to this advice"

    To start with the author never stops 'selling' the book ("you will learn how to...", "I will teach you...” etc) it goes on and on. The narrator’s monotone delivery doesn’t help the matter.

    Secondly, the first half is personal finance 101 for Homer Simpson, "duh".

    Finally, [and yes, the author does eventually get to a point] the advice offered is logically flawed and potentially dangerous. The book makes the naive assumptions of continued economic growth and strong personal discipline on the part of the reader. You would do better investing the money you would have spent on this book and buy lottery tickets!!
