Most people wouldn't expect a schoolteacher to amass a million-dollar investment account. But Andrew Hallam did so, long before the typical retirement age. And now, with Millionaire Teacher, he wants to show you how to follow in his footsteps. With lively humor and the simple clarity you'd expect from a gifted educator, Hallam demonstrates how average people can build wealth in the stock market by shunning the investment products peddled by most financial advisors.

Very solid advice. No nonsense. No fluff. Everything makes perfect sense. I only wish I had read it earlier.

You're in a career where it's considered "normal" to be broke. If you were doing anything else for a living, you'd have given up by now.

And I'm sure there are people in your life who wish you'd do just that... They want you to settle down, get a "real" job, and make music a hobby. Screw 'em. The truth is, if you know what to do, you can make a lot of money as a musician. This book shows you what to do.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book has a lot of the standard "You can do it! Get there and get it!" without giving any real practical advice. It's also very dated.

In clear and concise language, Michael Levine, one of the top public relations counselors in the country, reveals the same procedures he uses every day to get press on major stars - and how those strategies can be utilized on little or no budget. Using case histories and tips from his own experiences, Levine shows you how to think like a publicist and map out a strategy for success.

Good information, but VERY dated. This book is from 1993 or so. Still, I got a lot of good information out if it and it sparked some ideas for me. There is only a passing mention of the internet in the book, though.
