Reviews - What do our customers think?
Short and Simple  Mar 12, 2010
This book was an easy to read and easy to understand guide to long-term financial planning. In order to become financially secure, you need a plan. You need to know the difference between "needs" and "wants" and have the will power to put aside the wants in order to meet your goals. Good book to read if you find yourself spending more than you earn each month or are wondering why you're always in debt and are looking for a way out. Attitude is everything.
A Parable Of Financial Success  Jun 4, 2008
If you are taking the time to read my review I want you to know up front that I have worked for the company that helped create it for 21 years. I wasn't aware of the whole story of the book until it was in publication. If you knew me, you'd know that if I thought it sucked I'd say so. This story is a great example of how to avoid being part of the 90% of the population that cannot maintain their existing standard of living, without working, at age 65. Not the way it should be for the citizens of our great nation. In my 21 years of experience I have seen all the mistakes (and more)that the fictional Aunt Katherine explains. Most people, sadly, focus on all the wrong issues regarding their own journey to financial success. This is not "War and Peace" but it is great little story about attitudes, aptitudes and actions. Whether you buy it, get it for free or read it in the bookstore, the small amount of time needed to devour this book will be well spent. Good luck however you proceed.
"Developing Financial Attitude"  Apr 14, 2008
"This fictional story was one quick, easy and influential book that everyone should read at least once. It reminded me of the movie "Karate Kid" (hang in with me here). Daniel wanted to learn how to fight and be the BEST at karate. He wanted Mr. Miyagi to teach him the tricks that made him so amazing and powerful when he used karate. The first week Daniel comes to Mr. Miyagi and he has him wash the car. Then the next week he has him waxing the car. Daniel gets exasperated and feels that Mr. Miyagi is taking advantage of him. He doesn't want to be the cleaning boy he wants to learn karate. Then one day Mr. Miyagi puts it all together for him. Daniel then sees that he had been learning Karate all along thru these tasks and at the same time getting physically stronger each week. The same is true with Michael in this story but instead of Karate - Michael wants to learn how to be rich. He wants to be rich right now. What is the secret? What is the short cut? Each week he meets with his Aunt Katherine in hopes of this discovery. At first he's excited about their meetings and the possibility of learning THE SECRET from his Aunt. But after a few weeks he thinks all these things she is having him and his wife do are foolish. He later finds out the rest of the story just like Daniel in karate kid. Life lessons are tough to learn sometimes. I wish I would have read this book when I was a teenager. This book has a great way of explaining a financial base from where you can start to have financial freedom. It's made me look at several things about money in my own life that I think I need to be tweaked. It might make you take a second look at the way you manage money too. I'm very excited for this financial tool from which I can starting talking to my kids about money and not have them close the door on that subject before I even say a word. The story speaks for itself. I like that.

Interesting Note...  Apr 8, 2008
I find it very interesting that of the 22 people that rated this book with five stars, only 2 of them have written reviews on anything other than this book as of the day I write this review, yet over half of the people that gave it less than 5 stars have also reviewed other items, mostly other books. Once you add that information to the fact that the book was written for First Command as a marketing tool, it makes me wonder how many of these 5-star raters also happen to be advisers that work for First Command. Talk about potentially biased reviews.

This happens to be my first review on this site. I felt compelled to write because I know about its origins and the company behind it.

The book does have valid principles, but so do many other comparable books. I happen to prefer "Rich Dad Poor Dad" by far. This book is not a great book, but you CAN learn from it. Just don't buy it. If you want a copy, find the nearest First Command office near you and give them a visit. They will be happy to give you a copy. Just understand that once you realize that one of the main points of the book is that most people would do better to use a trusted adviser to do their financial planning for them (much like even a pro tennis player still needs a coach), that First Command will be totally willing to be your financial adviser. You will have to make the review of First Command on your own.

Thank God I have an Advisor!  Oct 30, 2007
About the book: Excellent! There isn't anything else out there like it! Very unique! Keep on the shelf handy right next to "Who Moved My Cheese"! Because if you don't need it now - you will. There are so many 'do-it-your-self' books on the shelves, financial commentary, and technical writings about financial management and planning that it can be very overwhelming. But none of them address the ROOT of our money issues - behavior. The title is very fitting because it explores all of the underlying emotions and attitudes that surround our behavior towards money. The message speaks to everyone - anyone who says they are not guilty of behaving like the main character at one point or time is lying! Our average national saving rate (-1%) is proof of that!! The concepts in this book are very fundamental and inspirational. I definitely saw myself in this book but it has also reaffirmed why I seek out help from a financial advisor. The book is easy to read and perfect for our busy lifestyles. I've tried reading more lengthy books like the "Smart..." series, but I can't get through the whole book. I am in my 30's with two children, car payments, mortgage, and a full time job - I am living the "American Dream!" :) This book was perfect - inspirational and short. I would recommend this book to anyone (not just for young people) because it is never too late to start.
About the author: On the back of the book it states that Ed Baker is a pseudonym and that it was written by First Command Financial Planning and its advisors. Someone mentioned it was for marketing purposes or a secondary motive but the bottom line is: Who cares who wrote the book or why! Isn't every book a marketing tool? Books are the ultimate marketing vehicles to sell IDEAS. The real truth is the idea itself. In a sea of information overload this book had a very clear and simple message about one's values and behavior towards money. If First Command wrote the book for marketing purposes - Good for them! I'll buy into something promoting values. It definitely stands apart from all the other books sitting on the shelf that are thicker, more expensive, and less helpful. This is one way a company can brand themselves as different from the rest of the so called `dedicated advisors' out there who really only want the bottom line -your money.
