This book motivates readers to take control of their personal finances through planning and common sense. One important concept is the 10 Per Cent Rule; Chilton advises that you automatically withdraw 10 per cent of each paycheque and invest it into mutual funds. In Chapter Six, he covers retirement planning and in Chapter Eight, he discusses self-control, namely how to develop it to live within your means. Informative and entertaining, The Wealthy Barber is a great read for anyone struggling with financial planning.
