(Rich Dad, Poor Dad + Richest man in Babylon)×2019

if you've read the above mentioned books, you need to read this book too.

in a similar vein other investment books, yet with very practical implications and, in places, clear instructions on how make your money work for you.

Andrew Craig's narration is smooth and clear as well, I got used to his voice very quickly and didn't tire of hearing him at all.

I'm recommending this book to several of my investment friends and I think that it can really open up a new view to investment and portfolio diversification.

Good Job.

Valuable listening for every Adult, Teen & Child

This is a super valuable audio book and should really be part of the national curriculum. If you've ignored taking your personal finances seriously then Andy's book is a great place to start. Switch off the TV, radio and Netflix and have the whole family listen in to what is very measured and well thought through financial strategy for building long term wealth. Great piece of work Andy.

The next step I needed

I feel that much of this book would have gone over my head a year ago - I wouldn't say it is for the novice - but it was recommended to me at the right time to get lots out of the vast amount of information contained within.

Brilliant all-encompassing look at building wealth

Andrew Craig's book is the perfect antidote to most of the overly simplistic (but highly rated) "level-1" books which dominate the personal finance space. It's clear that the author has a keen interest in not just personal finance, but economics and is sympathetic to the principles of the Austrian school (even if he does quote JM Keynes).

This book teaches the reader how to understand the large macroeconomic forces at work, the workings of the monetary system, the implications of these trends, and then how to assess fair value of ALL the major asset classes, not just the common ones which most other books seem to overly focus on.

The core theme of this book is that Personal Finance does not just happen in a vaccum. Nothing works well all of the time. No single asset is "the best" investment. There is a time and a place for everything, and the more you increase your understanding of the world the more you can make use of the different options available to you.

I have read many personal finance/investing/FI books and for this this book is the best entry point to understanding what is really going on in the world and how to position yourself accordingly.

Basic but not bad

The book has some very good basic information with a focus on the UK context. The author is less non-partisan than he represents himself as and some of his views should be taken with a grain of salt (as with all books in this class). I’m worried that readers could come away very bullish on gold as an investment vehicle rather than as a currency independent hedge against inflation.

The info on reported vs actual inflation was interesting but I’d recommend actually reading your reserve bank reports on how they calculate these numbers (reserve bank of Australia does this quite well) as the views presented in the book are a little bias towards the authors world view.

Read this book but don’t build your view of world finance off this alone.
