OVER TWO MILLION COPIES SOLD! • “Quite simply the best financial self-help book” (Money Book Club, Book-of-the-Month Club)—now revised and updated
“One of the most effective tools for teaching personal finance basics.”—Arthur Andersen
In this updated edition of one of the biggest-selling financial-planning books ever, David Chilton simplifies the complex puzzles of personal finance and helps you achieve financial independence. With the help of his fictional barber, Roy, and a large dose of humor, Chilton shows you how you can take control of your financial future—slowly, steadily, and with sure success. Chilton’s plan (detailed in an entertaining story) is no get-rich-quick scheme, but it does make financial independence possible on nothing more than an average salary. Even if you consider yourself a financial “basket case,” Chilton explains how you can easily put an effective financial plan into action.
