In the 70's, I mostly got to read school library books, my aunt's endless Harlequin subscriptions and yard sale finds.  So, several of these are authors I haven't read:

 

I have all the Diadem novels by Jo Clayton (most are so yellowed and brittle -- some I had to get used in pre-Amazon and pre-eBay online searches so came that way and some were mine).  I've been putting off finishing because hard for my old lady eyes to read.

Fund Your Ideal Lifestyle Review
Fund Your Ideal Lifestyle - Clayton Dani... Fund Your Ideal Lifestyle - Clayton Daniel

A while ago

 

Okay, so I read this book at the beginning of the year (I think), so my review may be a bit off as I’m running from memory here. What I can tell you (first off) as a disclaimer, I didn’t attempt any of the exercises in the book. It’s not because I thought they were bad (opposite in fact – they got me thinking) – but because I’m not really in the right place in my life to need to do this yet. I have to say that I did enjoy reading the anecdotes that Clayton Daniel included throughout the book. I’d imagine he’d have quite a story to tell.

 

Skills learnt

 

Now I’m not one to toot my own horn (actually, I may be… what do I know?), but I didn’t learn anything unexpected in the book. There was no magical formula (well he does have a few formulas that he uses for wealth creation). There was no shortcut. He told me what I learnt a while ago during my time at university. However, I do see the benefit of reading this book if you are:

 

  • An Australian citizen.
  • Not sure how to handle or plan your money.
  • Not sure where to invest.

As I’m none of the above, the book didn’t apply to me. But, to those that tick the boxes, you may find one or two helpful hints.

 

Rating

 

Officially, I rated this book as a four-star book. I found the tone of the book friendly and casual, and it was an easy read. I’m not sure how to rate the actual content. It taught me a few questions I should ask myself but not much I didn’t know already. However, if this is your first chance at reading something like this, then I suggest you pick it up and give it a try, or at least ask Clayton Daniel for some smart advice. He sounds as if he’s been through it all and knows what he’s talking about. He’s passionate about this topic, and I think that’s what counts.

 

Note about this review

 

I received a copy of the book from the author for an honest review. I always try my best to balance the reviews and not favour any one person (though I may be a bit subjective when it comes to the genre).
