Do you have personal finance questions? Ken Fisher's book might help
The Ten Roads to Riches by Ken Fisher, CEO of Fisher Investments, discusses ten different ways to get rich. With some hard work and creativity your worries might just be alleviated. Below are some relevant excerpts from the book:
"One point: If you've read any of my prior books, this isn't like them. They were largely about capital markets, primarily stocks and bonds. That is my main background as founder and CEO of a global money management firm running over $45 billion in stock and bond money for institutions and wealthy individuals. But this isn't a capital markets book at all. It's a detailed micro and macro inspection of how very wealthy people get that way-and how you can too!"1
No matter which path people traveled to great wealth, Ken Fisher writes about them, showing what each person did to achieve his/her current wealth. Ken Fisher also writes why some paths are less ideal than others and why some are slower than others–and why some require a great deal of luck. For example, many think fame is the best path to achieving great wealth, and Ken Fisher shows how show business can make money, but it's not true riches unless you know what to do with that money.
Readers will find The Ten Roads to Riches entertaining and informative. After all, accumulating significant wealth is a goal many share.
Comments and Reviews of Ken Fisher's Book
While Ken Fisher's book received many positive reviews and ultimately reached best-seller status, as with most books, online Comments can be found about the subject matter or style. For example, one reader said the book wasn't a "comprehensive guide" to building wealth.
For anyone with a similar view, the book' explains the book wasn't designed to be a step-by-step guide with in-depth biographies. Rather, the book was intended to be an enjoyable and engaging look at some common ways people have built their wealth. Throughout, there are multiple examples of people that took the particular road and ideas for the reader to pursue. For those interested in learning more, each chapter offers additional suggested readings.
"No one tells you how to get mega-rich--which is why you need this book. But you may not want to be mega-rich. Well, the good news is the same roadmap to these ten roads applies if you want to be worth $3 million, $10 million, or $300 million. One convenient feature--this book is modular--one chapter for each road. You needn't read them in order if you don't want. If you want, after this preface, skip to the middle of the book--doesn't matter where. Start a chapter. If you decide that road isn't for you, skip to another one more suitable. Throughout the book I reference the other roads--as in, "No, that isn't this road, that's that road in Chapter 9"--sometimes earlier in the book and sometimes later. Think of it like a collection of ten little mini-books."
