This is a difficult book to rate. Informationally, it should get a 5. For ease of understanding, it should get a 5. But as a "good read," well, much of the first half read like an annoying infomercial and that really bugged. I also don't like phrases like "get rich."

So, it's weird that I read this book. I did so at the suggestion of a friend, otherwise I never would have given it a thought. (Thank you, Katrina!) I began skeptically, but this ended up being the very book I needed to read, for me

I'm a bit of a personal finance nerd, and I love budgeting, being frugal, and paying off debt. I tackled my consumer debt after returning home from a teaching job in Japan, and in about 2 1/2 years paid off about $20K thanks to Dave Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover" and "Your Money or Your Life" by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin. Between those two, I had all the motivation/information I needed and diligently dug myself out of my B.S. money ways while working full time and going to grad school full ...more

الكتاب بالجملة مفيد لعامة الناس .. كونها يحوي طريقة لتجميع مبلغ مالي جيد من خلال التوفير من الإيراد الشهري أو النصف شهري ..
يحوي أفكار كثيرة رائعة .. لا يرقى لما طرحه كيوساكي في كتابه " الأب الغني والأب الفقير " لكنه في الجملة رائع ومفيد
أكثر ما أعجبني فيه طريقة التسديد النصف شهري والذي يضيف نصف شهر في السنة ويسقط عليك نصف التكلفة بعد مرور عشرين سنة ..

I read one of David Bach's books back when I was starting my first job and it was helpful. This one, as far as I can remember, has the same type of information - good basics if you are not saving at all now or are in debt, but nothing much beyond that.

It was also written before the housing market crash, so I rolled my eyes a lot hearing about how you have to buy a house now or you'll never be rich, foreclosure is so rare, it's so easy to buy a house, check out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac... I li

The premise of this whole book is that if you do anything with money, throw out the concept of a budget and automate everything you do with money. Safe idea?

He explains everything in a very young-adult reader fashion by creating little snippets of conversations with people from either interviews or classes he taught and framing it in a way that sounds funny and easy at the same time. I think the idea of a budget or some finance manager is still important for tracking expenses and following up on

I would recommend this book to the complete novice, if you want to learn some very simple things that you can do to help you secure your retirement then read this book. If however, you want to really understanding investing, and finance this probably isn't the best book.

The book has a few good tips that work for everyone:

1: Pay yourself first (A common recommendation)
2: Pay your mortgage bi-weekly (could reduce it by 5-10 years)
3: Put away 10% of your money
4: Tithe
5: Always save some, even if yo

This was very repetitive. Yes paying yourself first is a must do for all of us. BUT Mr. Bach completley ignores the immense credit debt that the average person carries. We live in a credit society where we all are trained to wanting it now and buying it now wether we have the money or not. SO it's interesting that the author ignores the debt that people have and just focus on paying yourself first. Even if you manage so have a couple of million in retirement savings; it's not going to help you m ...more

Great book on the basics of becoming wealthy. wish I would of read this book when I was still in my early 20's

Had to read this as a requirement for a family finance class. Some good ideas, but the style of writing was not to my taste AT ALL. I can't stand reading books that are constantly telling me how great they are. I'm reading it. I'll judge it for myself. I guess that's just the self-help book style. There's as much salesmanship as actually content. It had all the self-help standards: This is guaranteed to work for you! This thing that worked for me will also work for everybody, everywhere, no matt ...more

This book made me rethink all my views on money. It was also the impetus to get me focused financially.
Doug
I have read this book several times since it was published. I like its simplicity. It is 200 pages, but I took notes on the important principles and I was able to boil everything down onto one page. None of the ideas or concepts are new, but this book does give readers some insights into how one might go about putting these principles into action. This book and Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover are probably the best two resources in terms of 1) learning about personal finance and 2) putting a p ...more

My husband read this as a text for a Personal Finance course he is taking at USU. Bach's ideas are good and helpful, but there was nothing earthshattering here. Basically, you should pay yourself first and do it automatically, pay off debt and do it automatically, pay a tithe and do it automatically, pay your home off early and do it automatically. The book was repetitive and read like an infommercial. Still there were some differences in his strategy which I think we will use in our finances. I ...more

This is an easy to read book with ideas and motivation for saving money. There are tons of ideas that can save you lots of money. My only disclaimer is that for me personally, I disagree with his take on throwing out the budget. We use a budget, and it works well for us. In any case, there are some great ideas here, and we are trying to implement as many as we can. We still have a long way to go, but we have taken steps in the right direction. I also have "Smart Couples Finish Rich" by David Bac ...more

I read this book in nearly one sitting, and I've enjoyed most of Bach's other books since then. Some of his later books repeat themselves (something I hate in books) but he makes becoming financially independent realistic. Bach's definition of financially independent is not having to rely on "Uncle Sam" during retirement while having enough to live on comfortably. I appreciate the fact that he doesn't over state his goals for his readers; by that I mean he doesn't promise millions of dollars to ...more

The Automatic Millionaire by David Bach is another book recommended by the financial planner Husband and I want to go see. It was an easy read and the principles he sets forth are so simple to to and keep doing. The trick is to make everything AUTOMATIC.




Pay your bills automatically using a bill pay service. Pay yourself through payroll deduction so that you never see it. What you see you don't miss. How to pay your mortgage off quick and easy. How to get out of credit card debt quick and easy an

Recommends it for: Personal finance beginners
The Automatic Millionaire is a popular personal finance guide geared toward beginners that, despite having some good advice, fails to be a solid finance book due to two major issues.

First, the first impression one gets is that this book reads like a late night infomercial. Had I picked this book up at a bookstore I would've put it down after reading the first few pages. I was able to make it through the book by ignoring the snazzy marketing-speak; and that's no small feat. I felt like the whole

The Automatic Millionaire
By: David Bach
Copyright 2003
Reviewed May 2008
Listened to Unabridged Audiobook

The automatic millionaire is an excellent, practical book that will indeed instruct anyone how they can become a millionaire. In my subjective opinion, however, the younger one is, the easier it will be to make this work well. Also, some minimal level of income will help too. BUT, I recommend this book to EVERYONE who is not already independently wealthy.

The book basically illustrates how one ca

(I rewrote my review,I think this is a better opinion than the one I previously shared.)

The Automatic Millionaire is a relatively quick read on the subject on personal investment and savings. It’s easy to read, written in a conversational style that is easy to understand and process. It is broken down into eight chapters addressing the different avenues to savings and investing your way to becoming a millionaire. The book wraps up with a motivational good luck message from the author and a remin

This book is based on the solid and wise financial principles of saving money and compound interest. However, despite the excellent foundation of the book, David Bach manages to say some fairly dumb things.

The chapter on homeownership is the most egregious example. This book was written during what we now know was a major housing bubble, and a few years after this book was published, home prices plummeted and foreclosures soared. But in his book, David Bach proposes that you CANNOT get rich as a

Ended up almost regreting I read this book. The first few things in this book as a lot of people have said on here are good. Pay yourself first and do everything you can to get out of debt. After that the book just seems to go on and on about the same pay yourelf first theme. I'm not blaming the book or saying that the author was wrong but, I wonder how many people bought a home a few years ago after reading this book and now regret that they did? 401K's are looking more and more like social sec ...more

I chose the guidebook, "The Automatic Millionaire: A Pwerful One-Step to Live and Finish Rich" by David Bach, because I'm the type of person that plans ahead for the future. To be able to predict what'll happen and to be independent, supporting myself such as being financially stable. The story includes the Mcintyres, an ordinary looking family that were actually well off into their retirement for a permanent vacation. They benefited from David's lessons to become an automatic millionaire and th ...more

This is a book full of common sense. It's not a get-rich-quick scheme. It's an investments and compound interest type of plan. David's plan can be summarized as follows:

- Invest some of your money
- Pay off debt
- Buy a house
- Donate to charity

It's not complicated. The clever bit is that he recommends making these things automatic. Automatic payroll deductions for your 401k or other investments. Automatic payments to pay off debt and your house. This book could have been about 1/4 of the size with

This book was a really quick read with very practical advice. It approached the topic of saving and investing in a little bit different way than most other financial books, stating you don't need a budget or discipline to be a millionaire, but it also had the basic advice that is obvious to most people, like explaining the latte factor.

It's called the Automatic Millionaire, not because it's telling you how to become a millionaire overnight, but how to set up a money management system that is aut

A very easy quick read with large type. The few ideas in it are very good, pay yourself first, eliminate debt, buy a house, automate everything, the Latte Factor to help people budget, setting up an emergency, and giving charity. There is also a fair amount of information on how to get started in these ideas, but overall this book could have been condensed considerably. I think I would like to automate more than I currently do, and it has inspired me to track my spending to see where I could sav ...more

I'd read many other personal finance books before this one. Something you learn after a while is--they all have the same basic information in them.

Pay yourself first
Live below your means
Save
Put your money in the right investments for your situation

What made this book different was the "automatic" concept. Not that other books don't tell you to set up automatic payments as well, it's just not the central concept, and I believe it's a crucial component for people to understand if they

No bad. Easy to read and gets to the point fast. The advice is practical and actionable. Nothing mind-blowing or revolutionary (which the author duly admits) , but good, solid advise nonetheless.

My only disappointment was that there is not a lot offered to self-employed entrepreneurs like myself. Most of the advice and recommendations are more suited to employees. Its tough to implement a lot of what's suggested if you don't have a fixed salary/ monthly income.
Tiffany
Fast read on finances, but really the same message drilled in over and over: automate your finances. Automate your retirement, automate your credit card payments, automate your tithing (I have to admit I didn't finish the last chapter). It's a no-brainer book nowadays. Who doesn't automate these? Really helpful chart though that I did print out on how starting saving earlier can not only make you more via compound interest, but it involves less principle paid in. This information doesn't help me ...more

This book has good basic advice. There probably isn't much here that you haven't heard before if you've read much of anything about personal finance, but it breaks things down step by step and has some charts that really spell out how important it is to start saving early. It was a very fast read and worth it, especially for people who are just starting out on their own.

This is an excellent book for say my son, who is 19. But, for most older people the principles in this book are very basic. We know this already. I just wish I had known this when I was my son's age. There is no way tp ever recoup the lost compound interest from an automatic investing plan started early in life.

Now, having said that his principles are basic and "everyone" knows this stuff, the next question is: yes, but are they doing it. Sadly, the answer is no. Most Americans continue to over

While I still think people should read "Smart Women Finish Rich" or "Smart Couples Finish Rich" FIRST, I have to say, I probably liked this book better. That's saying a lot, since I am a huge fan of everything I've picked so far by David Bach. I'm not sure you'd get as much value from Automatic Millionaire without reading one of his "Smart **" books first, but you'd still get plenty.

I like Bach because he manages to keep things so simple and so straightforward, without being gimmicky and nausea
