This review is from: The Rules of Money: How to Make It and How to Hold on to It (Paperback)OK, I don't know what's up with the other reviewer but I found this to be a pretty awesome and informative book. I've read a lot of personal finance books so yes some information will repeat itself. But this didn't really bother me I did find some other good bits. The other reviewer is nit picking and taking quite a few things completely out of context. And what was mention were not rules but were bits out of the chapters. The rules go something like this:
Rule 1: Anybody Can Make Money - It Isn't Selective or Discriminatory
Rule 2: Decide On Your Definition of Wealth
Rule 7: Understand That Wealth Is a Consequence, Not a Reward
Rule 9: Decide What You Want Money For
Rule 11: If You See as the Solution, You'll Find It Becomes the Problem
Rule 17: Don't Envy What Others Have
Rule 40: Pay Off Your Loans and Debts as a Priority
Rule 56: Pay Attention to the Details
Rule 59: Control Spending Impulses
Rule 63: Carry Out a Finance... Read more

Terrible waste of paper,
This review is from: The Rules of Money: How to Make It and How to Hold on to It (Paperback)This is the worst nonfiction book I have ever read. There is absolutely no useful information in here unless you are a complete idiot. If you are, (1) don't get yourself into debt, (2) put money aside to earn interest, and (3) don't waste money. That is all this book really says, repeated and reshaped in order to make 100 rules and to cover a couple hundred pages. Each rule also has a sentence repeated and emphasized in a gigantic font and all caps to drive the point home, except the sentence often sounds idiotic out of context.
"A BALANCE SHEET HAS TO BALANCE."
"I WOULD COOK A THIN AND SICK-LOOKING CHICKEN WITH CHEAP WHITE WINE AND SHE WOULD PROVIDE LOBSTER AND CHAMPAGNE."
"I REALLY HOPE MY SONS DON'T READ THIS, OR I'LL BE CORNERED IN MY HOME LIKE A RAT"
"I'VE ALWAYS HAD MY DOUBTS--AND THIS IS ENTIRELY SUBJECTIVE, ENTIRELY PERSONAL--ABOUT SUPPORTING A PENGUIN."
That's right, you get all of those gems plus 96 more, each... Read more

This review is from: The Rules of Money: How to Make It and How to Hold on to It (Paperback)This is an excellent book. It's nice & simple. Though I am very financially literate, we must remember that most people who have a poor or middle class upbringing (like I did) have no idea how money works. They just spend their lives working for money --- they never learn to have money work for them. They live under the old & false ideas that "it takes money to make money", "I will never be rich because I was not born rich", etc. Ha. Those are things negative people say, and they are not realistic. Anyone can become rich if are smart & try hard enough. Period. Take it from someone who is very successful in business & life already --- this book is good. It's nothing more than a list of 100 facts that people who are already financially successful already know, so for some people this will sound like a repeat of just common sense information. For other people it will be new & exciting information. If you are part of the latter group, I highly recommend you buy many more financial books... Read more
