I've only read his earlier book: Become Your Own Financial Advisor

That one was pretty good and very readable, void of crazy jargon. Didn't know about this one so I'll probably pick it up sometime, depending on who his target audience is. It may just be a book full of what those reading finance blogs etc. consider general knowledge.

Here is a link to something similar he/they posted a few years ago (assuming from the link): http://www.galileocapital.co.za/newsletters/2010/Make%20your%20first%20million%2013%20July%202010.pdf

Basically the advice a financial advisor gives you (well, he is one after all :D )

Quote
Step 1: Get out of debt
You cannot get rich if you have short term debts such as credit cards, clothing accounts and overdrafts. If you really want to become wealthy, you need to pay off these bad types of debt as quickly as possible. Thereafter you can keep your good debts such as home loan and car debt.

Step 2: Build an emergency fund.
You need to build up a cash account that is accessible at short notice. Try to keep 3-6 months worth of your monthly expenses in this account. It is not an investment and should only be used to pay for emergencies such as a car breakdown or insurance claim. The purpose of this account is to avoid the situation where you have to sell investments at the wrong time.

Step 3: Start saving
Younger people can invest all their savings in shares because they have the time to let these investments grow. In your lifetime as an investor, you are going to see many stock market crashes and recoveries, your job is to simply keep saving through all of them. Ignore all the people and pundits who will try to scare you out of saving, just keep your head down and stick to the plan.

Ideally you should save as much as possible in the beginning. Try to ensure that you save a minimum of R5,000 per month. I realise that R5,000 might seem like a large amount in the beginning but you have to decide - do you want to be financially independent or do you want to work for a salary for the rest of your life? As I mentioned at the start of this article, it is simple but not easy to get rich.

Step 4: Where to invest
The ideal place to start saving is in an exchange traded fund (ETF) or indexed investment. ETF’s are low cost investments that will generate fantastic growth over the long term. If you want to start making a million rand every 2 to 4 years, you will first need some capital. As they say, “Money makes money.” By now, I am sure you are wondering how on Earth you are going to make this kind of money so quickly.

How it works
• You need to save R5,000 every month for a period of nine years.
• Try to invest all this money in the stock market e.g. in an ETF.
• After nine years, you will almost certainly have a R1 million worth of investments.
• If you keep investing R5,000 and add it to the first R1 million, you should have another R1 million within 4 years.
• By sticking to the plan, you should have your R3m in total within 16 years.

Whilst 16 years might seem like a long time, you can reduce the period by saving more money as your salary increases over time. Any bonuses or other lump sums that you can add to the investment will speed up the process significantly. There is a real-life example below of someone who has saved R750,000 in less than four years.

yeah, I picked up that article on Moneyweb, hence the question on the book, did it really differ that much from the article ?

Also, for those listening to 702 Money Show, when is "Superstar Saver Julia" - warren's prodigy and the person he refers to in the article, gonna be interviewed again ?

I think it's usually in the 3rd quarter of every year if at all this year. Last year she was pregnant and had bought a house so it was warned that the numbers won't be as great this year.
Keep calm

Im aware of that. I heard him speak about it on 702 before launch.
I have a copy of the first book in e format.
If anyone's willing to swop books in e format or other please let me know. Id like to read the 2nd book and in exchange will mail you a copy of the first book for your or your family's reading.
