    Oddly, I find myself interested in #6 – spending money meaningfully. On a scale of 1-10 of how tight I am with money (1 being doesn’t spend beyond the survivals, and 10 being completely wreckless), I’d say I’m about a 3. I could learn a thing or two on relaxing monetary control. :P

    Looking forward to reading his acquired knowledge since the original.

    AND… I hope this starts shifting more and more people to index/ETFs… maybe that will be a wakeup call for the mutual fund managers to smarten the eff up, and start lowering their MER gouging – even on indexes.

    @Jon D.: It’s been a while since the previous giveaway. Perhaps, it is time for another one… :)

    @EZ: Dave’s main tip is to spend money on experiences rather than things. I’d rate myself a 5 on your scale of spending but to be honest, only a minority of Canadians have a saving problem. The rest have a rather big spending problem.

    Nice reasons and summary CC!

    I plan on getting the book soon, probably this weekend. I learned a lot from David’s first book and hopefully this one will teach me a few more tips while reinforcing many others.

    I like the tip by Dave that spending money on experiences beats spending on things. Think carefully – on your deathbed or close to that stage, will you say to yourself ” Boy, I wish I had bought a bigger TV or a fancier car”? Or will you be content that you spent your money building memories for yourself and those close to you? My dear old dad who recently passed away spent his last few weeks in and out of reality and during most of his lucid moments he would talk passionately of the wonderful times he had spent with family members and friends. I say, use your funds to make memories that become deposits in your Memory Bank.

    Writers are the ones that become the millionaires, not the buyers of their books.

    I like that idea of spending money wisely too. Good review

    @EZ/CC. Sometimes it’s a result of our lifestyle. For myself personally, I’ve had to relocate (move) for work about 12 times in the last 20 years. As a result, I simply stopped buying anything which isn’t going to make the cut in my next relocation (or move), as it would go straight into the dumpster.

    A clever way to do a book review by listing 10 things you liked about the book.

    My copy of Chilton’s sequel arrived in the mail a few days back and I’m looking forward to the read. Based on my first impressions and skimming through it, I have to say that I was pleased to see the lack of a narrative or story telling approach (#10) that we saw in his first book.

    I also like the fact that he’s a funny cat (#1) and I’ve already had a few chuckles by skimming through.

    Thanks for the review; I’m looking forward to the read.

    Cheers,
    TWC

    I am always bemused by those people who spend years at school to get a good job, work sixty plus hours a week to make good money, but are content to hand over responsibilities for their monies to some one they had just met, and can’t be bothered to take the time to read a little.
    Today’s Kids learn by video games, make the book into a video game, allow interaction, that is the best way to get the message across,,
