Publisher's Summary

The incredible story of how a schoolteacher built a million-dollar portfolio, and how you can too....

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 and avoiding the get-rich-quicker products concocted by an ever widening, self-serving industry.

Using low-cost index funds, coupled with a philosophy in line with the one that made Warren Buffett a multi-billionaire, Hallam guides readers to understand how the stock and bond markets really work, arming you with a psychological advantage for when markets fall.

  • Shows why young investors should hope for stock market crashes if they want to get rich.
  • Explains how you can spend just 60 minutes a year on your investments, never open a financial paper, avoid investment news, and still leave most professional investors in the dust.
  • Promotes a unique new investment methodology that combines low cost index funds and a Warren Buffett-esque investment philosophy.

Millionaire Teacher explains how any middle-income individual can learn can learn the ABCs of personal finance and become a multi-millionaire, from a schoolteacher who has been there and done that.

Excellent Investment Advice

This book contained solid, long-term investment advice. I have readjusted my retirement accounts to match the strategies described in this book.

My only complaint is that the author spent too much time convincing the reader about the benefits of index funds. A few chapters into the book I kept saying to myself, "ok, I get it, low cost index funds are better than actively managed mutual funds, now move on".

Great personal finance and investing starter.

Overall excellent book. It bogs down when he reads off all of the funds for the alternate countries. Other than that, good stuff.
Not a fan of this narrator particularly.

I wish I had read this 20 years ago.

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

Amazing knowledge to share.

I believe this to be the best information sum up in one book. I highly recommend this if you are looking to have other streams of income. This information should be available to high school kids before they even get into debt. I hope this review will guide you into making the right choice for this purchase b

Everyone should read this book.

Honest, sensible financial advice. I'm no expert but Hallam makes very strong arguments. I highly recommended this book. I'll be telling friends and family to read it.

Read this book!

I've read several books on investing and Millionaire Teacher combines much of the wisdom into one simple, easy-to-understand, book.

Love his explanation of what the stock market actually is. The dog on a leash analogy really made things click for me.

The only downside is the spelling out of web addresses, but don't let that deter you.

Read this book! And then go buy some index funds :)

Another excellent book of fundamentals!

It's drags a little with all the email addresses and descriptions of the charts, but overall it's a great book. He quotes a lot of Stanley and Buffett, but I seem to continually need to hear these things when I starting thinking like the "fake rich."

Very good book!

Very good book with useful, practical information. It gets a bit boring and confusing when it gives all the details from all the charts and images. Also, no meed to give the exact urls be spelling them.

Bonds bad. Index good. Got it.

Drawn out simple concept that didn't need so many repetitive chapter. Terrible robotic narating with too many unnecessary www references.

Interesting listen

What did you like best about Millionaire Teacher? What did you like least?

The ultimate moral of the story is to invest in index funds. It is a very American book and doesn't tell you how to invest or what to do thereafter, perhaps I need another book?

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I like the story telling but all his comparisons made me feel terrible that I hadn't started investing my £5 a week when I was 10 years old, made me feel a failure.

What three words best describe Peter Drew’s performance?

Funny tales but really you should leave out reading out tables, this is the most boring thing ever and doesn't add anything to the listening experience.

Did Millionaire Teacher inspire you to do anything?

yes to invest

Any additional comments?

The audio formats of books really need to be looked out for non fiction books, there is no point reading out tables and figures.

The lessons all generations need to learn

A great listen. Solid, practical "how to's","what to do's" and "what definitely not to do"!

Generally good read!

Good read and relatively quick. I gave it 3 stars because I felt there was only one main point running through the book, which was to by low cost indexes. This was incredibly useful and very interesting to hear the statistics, but I feel that there could have been other points to learn. Nevertheless, it was a well written and easy book to pick up.
