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

Recommends it for: Everyone
Recommended to Sasha by: Katrina
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 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

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

For someone who is wanting to know finances 101 in a palatable and realistic way, you really can't beat Auto Millionaire! Now I'm off to read Robbin's Money, Master The Game and then some Suze Orman. FYI - Bach has some fabulous videos on Youtube...

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

This isn't my usual reading fodder (no fantasy or magic or teens falling in love), but it was a really interesting and insightful book. Ignoring the title (which sounds scam-y), this book is actually an excellent resource and breakdown of a really simple and common-sense way to save more money and be more efficient with bills, debt, savings, etc. The author talks about setting up direct deposits for 401ks and savings accounts (as well as investing savings to build interest, etc) and planning for ...more
Sep 14, 2010 Rachel rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
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

It's a beginner-intermediate level personal finance book. Taking it into that context it is a great book to read and a philosophy I followed before reading it. Recommended for those learning about managing money.
Sep 08, 2015 Matt rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Glad it was an easy read (about 3.5 hours). The information about buying a home vs. renting seemed to be good info for someone with little knowledge about home ownership. Aside from that, there was not much content I found useful or applicable. Basically: this was a "getting a handle on your financial future" type book that didn't stand out in comparison to other financial books I've read.

I found this book easy to read and packed full of information. It made me think about some of the ideas that I could implement to become financially stable. A wealth of information I would like to pass on to my children and any one who would listen

Keep it simple stupid

Financial freedom has never been simpler with this book. It is a basic finance book without the financial mambo jumbo. I can't wait wait to get started to become debt free and an automatic millionaire.

Very helpful when it comes to getting into the mindset of how to save money. I never would have thought to save money by not buying lunch everyday at work. I could save a lot more by making something and bringing it in or eating leftovers. This is only one of the many tips I learned from this book.

I learned about this book during an OK interview with the author on Betterment's new podcast. I was curious, and it's a short, super-quick read. Mostly I didn't like it—the style, the attitude, questionable hypotheticals, and questionable advice (overemphasis on 401(k), bonds, and homeownership). It's mostly aimed at personal finance beginners, but I hesitate to recommend it even for beginners because there are better sources of information out there.

It gets two stars because the underlying thes

(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
Jan 20, 2017 Jen rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition
The premise is super simple -- automatically deduct for retirement, savings, and tithing. He includes a lot of a charts showing compound interest to convince you how important it is to save even $5 a day. While much of this is good advice, it's at a very beginner level and a bit repetitive. However, it is a very quick read and does make me wonder where and how I can save even an extra few dollars a day.

I was skeptical when this book was given to me. The title provoked a cynical reaction from me. "automatic millionaire...what kind of pyramid scheme is this?"

Well, how wrong was I?!?!

This book is fantastic. It's great for whatever stage of your financial journey you are on. The author gives solid advice on investing and making your money work for you!

A must read!

Brilliant book with great financial advises. Some of these will not work outside of US, or maybe in now days (as book is quite old), but majority of it is still valid. While ideas and approach to various solutions is brilliant.

A very helpful guide to budgeting, saving, and investing. Making it all automatic is key, but understanding compound interest, stock market growth, and similar subjects will give you a strong foundation for moving forward with your finances. Most money books are garbage, this one is golden.

Read this years ago and started following the program. Unfortunately, discipline is not a strong suit for Tim and me in general and especially in financial planning. So we did a couple of the things and then let it fall by the wayside.

Basic, but decent. I disagree with his assertion that budgeting is impossible and you don't need to do it, but I do agree with automating as much as possible.

The Automatic Billionaire by David Bach
A common desire that the average person wants to achieve is to eventually become rich. David Bach expresses in his book, The Automatic Millionaire, not only how to get rich but how to stay rich. While the book is filled with great advice (many of which young readers should be aware of) the main theme suggest that you should save money - something people already know how to do but don’t know how to do it in a correct manner. The author may repeats practices

Love it !

This book helped me to become debt free. Being a millennial without massive college debt and credit card debt, is an amazing feeling. Thank you for sharing the wealth of knowledge David Bach.
Carrie Rose
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
