Book Review: Start Late, Finish Rich – A No-Fail Plan for Achieving Financial Freedom At Any Age by David Bach

This book was a gift from Scotiabank many years ago when I decided to open my bank account with them. I chose them because they were the only bank that had a debit card with a point system for free movie tickets. (Yes, I have been able to collect many points through this account. And no, this post is not sponsored by Scotiabank.)

Book Review and Reflections

1.Summary of the Book:- I find the title quite attractive. The “No-Fail Plan for Achieving Financial Freedom” may have been a little bit exaggerated as mistakes can happen all the time. However, this book highlights the many simple downfalls of our daily spending habits without being overly critical. The author is also able to write and convey his information in a fun and less boring way. I mean, it is a financial book with numbers and math.

2.Useful Themes:- There are two very informative sections about how to increase your income, direct selling and franchises. Both of these are often talked and even ridiculed about in our social media age compared to many years ago. But, both have been around for decades, and this book is able to breakdown the pros and cons of these types of businesses.

3.Must-Read or Pass:– In my opinion, this financial book is a must-read for all young adults that are looking to invest in their future. And for the young at heart, it is definitely never too late to remind yourself that you can change your own financial future!

I also discovered that David Bach just released his newest book, The Latte Factor this year! I am looking forward to reading that one someday!

What about you? What financial book have you read lately?

  1. I have to admit, I never read financial books because it seems to me that they’re all a fraud😅 but based on what you wrote I think I might give this one a chance😂

  2. I usually have a really hard time getting through financial advice books, I am more of a fiction person:) But the books I keep myself going back to are The secrets of the millionaire mind, Rich dad poor dad, and one that is not financial but keeps me at the right frame of mind so I can achieve my financial goal is – Intentional living – choosing a life that matters. Thank you for sharing this book with us – I would look for it.

  3. Sounds like an interesting book. I recently bought Rich Dad Poor Dad with the hope that I will get some basic understanding of investments. However, I haven’t read it yet. Let’s see how that one goes, and then I might buy this book. Thanks for the review! 🙂
