Choosing the Next Billfold Book Club Book


After our absolutely epic discussion of Helaine Olen’s Pound Foolish, I am a bit nervous that our next Billfold Book Club book might pale in comparison.

However, I am still pressing forward. Here are a few suggestions for us to consider, and leave your own suggestions in the comments:

My top suggestion is The Millionaire Master Plan: Your Personalized Path to Financial Success by Roger James Hamilton, for two reasons:


• It’s a new book (first published in 2014), meaning it probably won’t have outdated advice like “buy real estate!” or “get a savings account with 12% interest!”

• Hamilton promises to teach us how to travel up the seven levels of personal finance, from “Victim” to “Conductor” to “Legend.” LIKE SNOWPIERCER. We’re going to walk through the train of personal finance until we become conductors and then become legends.

Another new book worth considering is Kevin O’Leary’s Cold Hard Truth on Men, Women, and Money: 50 Common Money Mistakes and How To Fix Them. Kevin O’Leary is, of course, from Shark Tank, the American Idol for entrepreneurs.

We could also read any of the standard PF books that we haven’t yet covered, including Millionaire Next DoorTotal Money MakeoverYour Money Or Your Life, etc.

Or, you know, we could just read David Allen’s Getting Things Done. Mwah ha ha.

What do you think?
