Internationally bestselling financial advisor David Bach’s Automatic Millionaire promotes a revolutionary system for making even the most undisciplined money managers rich.

The Automatic Millionaire shows readers how to change their financial practices and even their lives, the simple and automatic way.

The book begins with a powerful story about an average Canadian couple — he’s a low-level manager, she’s a beautician — whose joint income never exceeds $55,000 a year, yet who somehow manage to own two homes debt-free, put two kids through college, and retire at fifty-five with more than $1 million in savings.

The incredible message Bach delivers is that the key to getting rich is “automating” the way to wealth by “paying yourself first,” using automatic funded retirement accounts and money market accounts to secure the future and pay for the present.

A concise guide that’s a fixture on bestseller lists, The Automatic Millionaire introduces readers to a system that is powerful and simple — an automatically effective, life-changing system that delivers. Do it once, the rest is automatic.

Good for anyone who has never read any personal finance books before. But the info on housing markets was obviously before the meltdown but pretty good general advice. Read full review
