I've purchased close to $100,000,000.00 in real estate & theses time proven principles helped me.
I've read the book & listened to this audio for the past 17 years.
I always learn something new or I remember a valuable lesson & ask myself why am I not doing this.

Basically same info as his last book, "Money, Master The Game". I was disappointed.

Long story short, same old lesson= after every Bull Market there is a Bear Market.

Don't wait to invest. Invest & wait 20 to 30 years.

Very Basic Material for Passive Investors NOT savvy investors looking to create exponential wealth.

Charlie Munger, Berkshire Hathaway's visionary vice chairman and Warren Buffett's indispensable financial partner, has outperformed market indexes again and again, and he believes any investor can do the same. His notion of "elementary, worldly wisdom" - a set of interdisciplinary mental models involving economics, business, psychology, ethics, and management - allows him to keep his emotions out of his investments and avoid the common pitfalls of bad judgment.

Adam Braun began working summers at hedge funds when he was just 16 years old, sprinting down the path to a successful Wall Street career. But while traveling as a college student, he met a young boy begging on the streets of India. When Braun asked the boy what he wanted most in the world, he simply answered, "A pencil." This small request became the inspiration for Pencils of Promise, the organization Braun would leave a prestigious job at Bain & Company to start with just $25 at the age of 24.

What did you love best about The Promise of a Pencil?

Basic, simple dreamer who went for it. I dont know much about his personal life, weather he was wealthy or not to be able to take this risk, yet the Cause is fantastic.

What did you like best about this story?

Coming from a 3rd World Country myself, I know the importance of a simple pencil and paper. Education is such a commodity in poor countries. When someone actually takes the change and gamble that Adam did, and start something as Incredible as POP, My Gosh, Where would society be. Bravo Adam! I applaud you.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene is when Adam travels to Guatemala and spends a few weeks with a local family to educate each other.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Adam goes back to Guatemala and learns that the family he had spent a few weeks with earlier, actually spoke fluent English. How the helping of each other inspired him and helped that family.
