Excellent personal finance book!

This book is the condensed version of the Dough Roller podcasts. It is essentially his podcast of how to build wealth on any income, 7 level of financial freedom, 4 pillars of investing, and many other of his podcast that I can’t remember the titles to, but Is saved on my podcast! I could just say skip the book and listen to his podcast but this book summarized the best of his podcast into a book! I loved how Rob explained his philosophy of investing and saving and make you think as a true investor would instead of some gospel of rules that don’t apply to everybody. I highly recommend this to anybody who want financial freedom at any age.

Financial freedom in a nutshell!

I highly recommend this book if you are trying to set yourself on the path to financial freedom. Rob does a great job of putting things in perspective and backing it up with the data. I started on the path late in life so already had a good base to work from but I learned a lot more and found there are some things I can work on. Well worth the read.

Excellent book and podcast.

I have been listening to Rob for years now since his first few podcasts with doughroller and have learned a ton from him. He does a great job breaking down complex ideas and making them simple. Definitely buy this book you won’t regret it.
