Publisher's Summary

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:

  • How to use "silent compounding" to turn small daily savings anyone can make into large chunks of lifetime cash
  • How to keep exactly the same lifestyle you have now and "spend invest" your way to a minimum of £1,791,735 in 20 years or less, proven and detailed in the book
  • The "giant leap" wealth attraction strategy using everyday household items and hidden daily opportunities to make long-term cash and passive recurring income
  • The "wealth mirage" technique to create and live a high opulent lifestyle on minimum daily costs and savings
  • How to use low/no-cost fast-start tactics such as "gratitude leverage" and "cheek creativity" to get others to do what you want, when you want, for the low-cost high life
  • "Irregular shock protection", "liquid cash pile power", and "random cash windfalls" for the easy way to the low-cost, high-life affordable life of luxury

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.

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.

Half a book wasted on bitter moaning

Would you try another book written by Mark Homer or narrated by Geoff Hodge?

no

What was most disappointing about Mark Homer’s story?

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.

What didn’t you like about Geoff Hodge’s performance?

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.

What character would you cut from Low Cost High Life?

Chris

Any additional comments?

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. :/

brilliantly humorous and informative

If you could sum up Low Cost High Life in three words, what would they be?

very informative with great humour underpinning it. If only I had book to listen to when I started out in my career.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Stuart, Marks father

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes it was, first time ever!

The Warren Buffet of Property

I am working my way through all of Progressive's books and this is one of my favourites so far.

Mark Homer comes across as understated rather than overhyped and I like the way that he lays out how basic concepts can make a massive difference.

Although this book has something for investors at all levels I would recommend it to intermediate property investors who perhaps have a small portfolio and are wondering how guys like Mark Homer (and Rob Moore) grew their portfolio and property business at an exponential rate in such a short time.

Looking forward to Uncommon Sense ...

Contrarian entrepreneurialism at it’s best

Although slow to start, this book finally got into gear and some of the fantastic insight MH has rung true. A must read
