The Wealthy Barber Returns!

Other / Canada

pole41mademnmcl_sl160_1If you’ve never had a chance to read The Wealthy Barber, you should probably drop everything you’re doing right now and go hunt down a copy.  David Chilton’s 1989 book about personal finance is the definitive guide to common sense savings, paying down debt, and everything else the a money-conscious SmartCanucker should know.  What’s more, unlike most personal finance books it’s written in a friendly and accessible way.

“Ok Jim, it’s a good book.  But why are you bringing it up more than 20 years after publication?”  Because The Wealthy Barber is coming back!  David Chilton will be publishing a brand new book discussing how best people can tackle in their finances today, and it’s coming out in the Summer of 2011 — The Wealthy Barber Returns: Significantly Older and Marginally Wiser.

Want a taste?  The Toronto Star just published an excerpt from the book, and it’s available on their website. There’s also a great recent interview with Chilton here.

    Weird! lol I was just thinking about this 2 days ago, and thinking there’s got to be an updated version. Every person on this planet who has not read this book should be FORCED to lol. Well, problem is that there’s just no helping some people with their finances. It’s a VERY common sense book, but there’s no magic pill for people who lack common sense. lol

    I first read this book when I was 23. Looking forward to rereading it a decade later.

    What everyone needs to do is head to their bank and speak to a financial advisor on how best to provide for their and their family’s future. It’s amazing what people don’t know…and it doesn’t matter how much money people make, ignorance of financial issues cuts across the board.
    Borrow the book from the library if you must and save your money buying the book….now THAT’S good financial information…:-)
