Jacobs and Del Vecchio made a scary topic understandable and relatable. I felt more empowered with every chapter.
Ben Franklin has always been my favorite founding father and it was so cool to learn more of his wisdom and to see how it has been proven over time.
Tom Jacobs has a wonderful way of making it seem as though he is speaking to you alone. His voice reminds you of your best friend that gives you really good advice but never patronizes.
I listened to the book in one sitting and will listen to it again while taking notes!
I am a 48-year-old barber with a very small salon and no idea if or how I would ever be able to retire. Del Vecchio and Jacobs have provided the tools and rules that are helping me to make a plan and get to work. The information in this book is presented clearly and thoroughly with humor and warmth. For me, the idea of investing in the stock market has always been an intimidating one. After reading Rule 72, I feel not only more confident and prepared but inspired to make my money grow. I would recommend this book to people young and old who want to make smart, sensible choices and actively take control of their futures.
