Chances are, you'll be coming back to it again and again. MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom and millions of other books are available for instant access. MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom Paperback – March 29, In his first book in two decades, Anthony Robbins turns to the topic that. “In this book, Tony Robbins brings his unique talent for making the “Money: Master the Game will be a huge help to investors Tony.
What does your gut tell you? What about your heart? And the same goes for your finances. To get an idea of how much an amount of income needs to be saved for, multiple it by Pick three things to start. Figure out whatever else you want and the annual cost of it, and add that amount to your current annual total. Speeding it up Save more and invest the difference.
Shelves: trading Robbins sounds like a charlatan, but I suspect he is not. Rather, I think he has helped himself to more than his share of his own kool-aid. Coming in at over pages, this book may have thirty pages of content. The rest is self-promotion, cheerleading, continually selling how wonderful what will be appearing, in just the next chapter. And endless namedropping. In there, there are a few "secrets" about how to manage your money.
For example, Robbins has "discovered" that you should save money by Robbins sounds like a charlatan, but I suspect he is not. For example, Robbins has "discovered" that you should save money by paying yourself first!
Also, he has learned the amazing secret that its a good idea to diversify your investments. He is such a true believer that glaring contradictions don't bother him much. He maintains, again and again and again, that he learns so much by focusing on successful people. He says that the way people become successful is by serving more than other people do. Thus, the more successful you are, the more you are providing a useful service to others. Sounds great, right. The only trouble is that a good portion of the book is devoted to getting you avoid the high fees charged by mutual funds who then underperform the market.
But wait. The guys who run these mutual funds are phenomenally successful.
So by his own reasoning, they must be providing a wonderful service. He never even begins to see the disconnect. Another example is even simpler. Conventional wisdom says you'll be in a lower tax bracket in retirement because you'll be earning less, but that may not be true since you won't have mortgage deductions if your house is paid off, and you won't have dependents if you don't have kids at home.
If you're a small business owner maxing out your plans, consider a Cash Balance Plan Pension on top of your k. Target Date Funds Target date funds assume that bonds are less risky than stocks, which isn't always true. They also assume that bonds have inverse or low correlation to stocks, which isn't always true; they can be correlated during rough times. For the average investor with simple needs, a low-cost target date fund from Vanguard can be a decent choice.
Get through fiduciary. Give you downside protection, and percentage of upside. Best when close to or in retirement. Small guaranteed return coupon. If market falls, you get back investment plus small return.
Tax deferred. House Prepay mortgage principal each month to pay off year mortgage in 15 years. This saves the interest on each payment.
Doing this over the life of your mortgage will decrease your total mortgage payments by half. Don't count your house as an investment. Investment Portfolio Rebalance once or twice a year.
Pay attention to tax impact. You must consider the risk factor, not just how the dollars are allocated. Fairly aggressive. Avoid variable annuities. Use a fixed indexed annuity FIA to get a guaranteed income for life. You must be 50 or older and have a large lump sum to open an account.
Or work with fiduciary. View all 3 comments. Jan 16, Michele Fadda rated it it was amazing. Everybody should read the book.
It's great, makes you think and understand such a complicate world, many things I didn't know coming from another country with different rules.

It repeats itself few times, and like he says in the book, it is a technique used to impress concepts in your mind, what is the use of a book you read and you forget 1 day after finishing it?
This is for me a strong sign of integrity with his words.. Hello 2! And last thing Do you judge a movie from the trailer, or you watch it? Read the book, even when it's hard to read i am telling you, english is not my first language and sometimes can take me longer: You may have a better life in front of you.

I just kept thinking WHEN are you going to get to the point, for those of us who are not overflowing with money and want to know how to get our finances in order and actually have a little extra to make a "want" download instead I'm on page 55 of of MONEY Master the Game: I just kept thinking WHEN are you going to get to the point, for those of us who are not overflowing with money and want to know how to get our finances in order and actually have a little extra to make a "want" download instead of trying to figure out which "needs" we can get away without.
I mean really, if you look at the index it doesn't even seem like he tells you anything to help. You know it's great he has the money and he can invest it and has the knowledge to do so, but he needs to write something in layman's terms and explain how we can invest a small amount for a small price, or how to understand stocks. He is now making money off a book that people, who are looking to make money, but in turn have wasted money on.
May 14, Carol added it Shelves: This is the kind of book I wish I had way back when. Way back when I first started earning my own money. If I had put some of these principles or advice to work all through my earning life perhaps I would have been a money master.
Somewhere in my head I got the idea that he was the evangelist of finance and his style might be a bit preachy. Anthony Robb This is the kind of book I wish I had way back when. Anthony Robbins covers a great deal Money Master. He includes lots of sage information from the best in addition to his own take on investing. I was particularly impressed with the easy to understand examples of compounded savings, the images of what a billion is, and Mr.
Robbins philanthropy. The older I get, the more I wish I had learned. He could easily be a Money Master. View all 9 comments. I only read the first half of this book. I should have stopped much earlier. In summary, this is one big commercial. The information provided at the highest level makes sense. But the Ray Dalio portfolio that is mentioned non-stop up to the point I quit, is nothing more than a bond rich portfolio that did well during a 30 year bond bull market.
I'll summarize what you need to know from this book. I added the third one. Tony didn't talk about that in the book.

I was very excited to begin reading the first chapter of this book, because I am a huge fan of finance blogs and getting my finances in order. I had never heard of Tony Robbins, but I was willing to give the book a shot, because any financial help is better than none at all.
Unfortunately between all of the "introductions", all I found in this book was fluff. The author, Mr. Robbins, was full of himself and determined to make you understand why you should not only read but download this book. One read and you will have all of the information you ever could need to become the wealthiest person in the world, or something like that. But you know how they say that some people are "all talk and no action"?
That's exactly what the first chapter of this book seemed like to me. Sure Mr. Robbins may be a wealthy man becoming even more wealthy through publicity and book publishing, but could he actually provide his readers with viable information they need to help grow their assets and lower their debts? Maybe the rest of the book provides this information … or maybe this book will help someone who follows fewer financial blogs and knows less about money than I -think- I do.
As it stands, given what I have read from the book, I personally do not recommend it. Nov 14, Terri Lynn rated it did not like it Shelves: The only reason I read this is because I am doing the Smiley campaign for the book and was given a free sampler that included the introduction and chapter 1.
As always, my opinions are my own and receiving an item free does not mean I will gush over how wonderful the book is if it is not. And from what I have read of this book, it is not. We received 55 pages and you don't even get to the table of contents until reading a bunch of fluffy statements praising Tony by his own rich friends and bu The only reason I read this is because I am doing the Smiley campaign for the book and was given a free sampler that included the introduction and chapter 1.
We received 55 pages and you don't even get to the table of contents until reading a bunch of fluffy statements praising Tony by his own rich friends and business associates who write vague praise about his personality and how smart they think he is without any proof to back it up.
Then after 3 pages of Table of Contents, there are more blank pages and then two more buddies wrote a preface and an introduction which is just more public relations for Tony. You finally get to page 30 after reading 29 pages of what amounts to ass-kissing by his buddies.
This made me wonder why he needed that. Why not just awe us with practical and useful information we can use rather than 30 pages of PR fluff? Finally, on page 30 you get to chapter 1. After all of the buildup, I thought we had finally gotten to the meat and bones of the subject but was disappointed because Chapter 1 was more like that cherry Jello fluff dessert served at Christmas parties than substance. Tony was self-worshiping Tony and still on a public relations kick saying how important money was and how he was such an expert and giving the same kind of information I remember from a junior high school consumer math course I took.
Where was Tony's originality, brilliance, and solid proven tools and advice? I don't know. It was like he was still trying to get Smiley members of this campaign to download the book! Frankly, I wouldn't waste my time with this PR piece designed to help the author sell more books.
What was Simon and Schuster thinking when they decided to publish this- separating fools from their money so to profit themselves? It didn't work with me and I don't think many Smiley campaign members were impressed either. Nov 12, Kara rated it it was ok.
I received a free preview of this book from Smiley While this book is well written in an engaging style, the actual content was very off-putting. I am predisposed to dislike books that position their main selling point as their authors' success and general awesome-ness.
I want to learn how to handle money better, not join a personality cult. Also, Robbins never fully explains why I should trust nor value the advice of "financial titans. This book plays into the American Dream myth and our eternal optimism that we will be the one to win at a rigged game.
Additionally, he misused psychology for his own gain. As a psychology professional, I find that deeply offensive. It is also dangerous. By perpetuating misinformation about mental illnesses he is making it harder for those with any sort of disorder to live and function in an ignorant society.
Lastly, his information didn't seem to be backed up by any quantitative research. The attitude was "I'm Tony Robbins, so you should believe everything I tell you and I'll make you rich. A perfectly fine read. But it didn't change my life. And Robbins came across as smarmy and a ittle too "reality TV.
This is an excellent and empowering book for getting people to take control of their financial lives. There are two things that really detract from the overall whole: Like it or not, those disclosures are in the book and sully the high motives I think the book was actually written with.
Outside of this, I found the book to generally give sound advice and get you thinking about how you need to manage every phase of your financial life - from scratching out your first few dollars into savings and getting it automated, to setting yourself a permanent income plan later in life to supplement social security, and leaving your legacy. As someone who has been managing my own investments and that of various family members for 20 years, there were some surprising learnings in here that I was not expecting.
I was delighted to discover that my own k offered an option to make Roth-style contributions. Since I expect that my generation will be paying the higher taxes racked up by debt from my parents' generation - "thanks guys!
I also learned about some indexed annuity options that guarantee principle protection while allowing for market-upside performance.
While this isn't a necessity for me at this point in life, it does help a family member who wants to guarantee that a lump-sum will still be there in a trust for the beneficiaries, no matter what. Finally, while they weren't actually new learnings, I was reminded how active investing is a sucker's game and how important it is to put your investments on an indexed auto-pilot across an allocation that can be simply rebalanced in a couple hours a year.
The costs of active trading add up, in fees and inefficiency. If you give up on the idea of getting rich quick in the stock market, recognize the fact that you don't know more than everybody else and if you do know more than everybody else - you don't need this book , and ensure you don't give your money to financial vampires siphoning off your money, you'll do alright.
I also found some great free resources for getting my wills and insurance plans in order in case something untowards happens to me. I'm hoping my family doesn't need it anytime soon. Nov 27, Leah Nadeau rated it really liked it. The book is basically a collection of advice from some of the top richest people in America on how to manage your money.
This book was insightful, but I found it a bit too much of oh look at me donating to charity, you should too! I can sum up the most valuable thing about this book here: On a yearly basis rebalance this allocation if gains in one allocation is getting too high and out of balance Notes: STRWealth - Get free software that manages your asset allocation - Make sure to create stop limits, potentially lose a little but gain a lot - He quotes Warren Buffet: Never lose money.
Rule No. Never forget rule No. I'm only a few chapters in and I'm inspired by Tony's mission to democratize the financial industry. It's probably his most remarkable book in terms of impact, and the measure of his position and influence today that pretty much only he can pull off these amazing interviews.
It's been 20 years since Tony's last book. I recommend getting up to speed by listening to Timothy Ferriss's podcast interview with Tony and maybe watching the progressive documentary narrated by Matt Damon called "Inside Job I'm only a few chapters in and I'm inspired by Tony's mission to democratize the financial industry.
I recommend getting up to speed by listening to Timothy Ferriss's podcast interview with Tony and maybe watching the progressive documentary narrated by Matt Damon called "Inside Job" which Tony says inspired him to begin this work, available free online. These will certainly whet your desire to read this book. It's an enormous book: But it is a book to be savored and enjoyed, so start at the start and read slowly through for the experience.
You're in the hands of a master who's prepared a feast, so relax and go for it. Highly recommended. Jan 13, Kit Pang rated it really liked it.
This book offers deep insights and wisdom only after a few hundred pages! I can see how Tony Robbins can be a phenomenal motivational speaker because he leaves me wanting to learn more BUT in this book the sentences similar to "And later, I will show you how and what" is used too often.
This book is around pages and probably of these pages are made up of useless fluff words. If you can manage to look past the fluffers, the inspirational words and financial knowledge of this book is worth This book offers deep insights and wisdom only after a few hundred pages! If you can manage to look past the fluffers, the inspirational words and financial knowledge of this book is worth it.
I especially like the chapters more on personal development than on investing. Nov 13, Erma Talamante is currently reading it Shelves: First off, this is a review for Smiley https: I received a sample chapter of the book for review, so this review is not based on the complete book. Reader be warned. The book begins as any hyped-up book does - with numerous pages of positive reviews. I generally skip these because I really don't want them to color my opinion of the actual book.
But I feel obliged to note that there were, in fact, 5 pages of hype before the title of the book. This is followed by First off, this is a review for Smiley https: This is followed by a Foreward and Introduction that is basically drawn out examples of the same thing.
All of the hype is designed to 'prime' you for what the author is trying to sell. The book itself does not begin until about page 30 30 of 55 on the pdf version I was asked to review. The first chapter, appropriate to the book's title, deals with money. This is further implied by the following: And you can win big! I'm game So, this is basically a book about Insider Trading for Dummies? And then comes the name-dropping. I won't bother quoting the list. Just know that for someone this famous, name-dropping is bad form.
While some of the tips and suggestions hinted at in the first chapter do seem intriguing, they are not enough to answer the question posed at the end of the first chapter: For those looking to get into investing, this is a good place to turn, but for everyone else Dec 09, Joe rated it it was amazing. The best book available on the market today to help someone secure their financial future for themselves and their family.
For those who want to do the very best to secure your future and ensure your family and children are secure, willing to make a few tough decisions along the way then this is exactly what you need and I am confident that following this advice will transform the next years for me.
It is long, but very interesting and easy to read and requires discipline to follow. You can' The best book available on the market today to help someone secure their financial future for themselves and their family. You can't retire young and well if you spend more than you earn, or what little you do save, put that away earning 0.
It would be great if there was a chapter for us Brits but there isn't and if you can't research the subtle differences of what we need to do differently here in the UK, then you are not going to have the discipline to follow through, save, invest and retire, you might as well not read the book in the first place. Likewise for those of your disgusted at the thought you might need to make a few cutbacks and save more, you will be disappointed. There are no chapters on winning the lottery or getting free money out of thin air, this is real life and succeeding in real life takes hard work, hard choices and discipline.
Anything that is worthwhile takes a little hard work. I am stunned that so many people felt they were qualified to leave a review of this page book after reading just the first chapter, many of those freely admit they only read the first pages. In a world of instant gratification, instant fame and magic pills it appears much of the world has forgotten that the underlying principle of hard work is still the driving force behind Jan 24, Deborah rated it did not like it.
I really tried to finish this book, but I suffered. It took me eons. Although the style of writing is engaging, you dont seem to get simple and direct information. The constant promotional material and name dropping, and repetitive statements eventually leave you feeling frustrated and annoyed. I much prefered "The rules of wealth". It simple and succinct. I read a few rules a day. Sometimes a few more than others.
I chose this genre of books for something different to read and to get some insight I really tried to finish this book, but I suffered. I chose this genre of books for something different to read and to get some insight into what is available out there. I really did not enjoy the style of writing at all. I am an advert reader and have read a wide genre of books. I am extremely disappointed because I feel like I wasted my time.
Life is too short to deal with waffle and fluff. If this book was more succinct and clear, I think it would be easier to identify that the relevant points, but I dont feel like I have learnt much. I work within the accounting sector, so this was not new to me. I just thought it would be good to get someones else's take on using the markets to gain "financial freedom".
I will not be reading any of his other books. I prefer watch his videos because he comes across as a pleasant and interesting and you can choose what you want to listen too. Thank goodness I borrowed the book. I am sorry, because I dont like writing this review, but honestly I feel like I wasted my time. I keep waiting for some substance, but There are a few tips, but they get lost in all the pomp and you loose the plot because of how frustrated you end up feeling.
Jan 03, Aurimas Mikalauskas rated it it was amazing. It takes guts to read a book of this size about finance. And surely the 7 Steps aren't Simple. But you wouldn't really think they would be, given the size, would you? So if we talk about the subtitle of the book, it's definitely misleading. But here's what I heard recently from one copywriter: Before this book, I wasn't investing much except for few investments I made 2 years ago. Even though I've been studying It takes guts to read a book of this size about finance.
Even though I've been studying the subject a bit before, for the most part the advice I got was frustrating and often incongruent, so I hesitated, because I didn't fully understand what I would be doing.
Now I feel confident in making some investing decisions myself - enough to restart my investments. The only "criticism" I have for this book is that it's much more useful as-is for US citizens than for the rest of the world, reason being that most of the financial services and tools Tony is promoting are only available if you live in US.
The rest of the world will have to do some extra research to get the best out of it. Bottom line: You'll be amazed. The fundamentals, covered thoroughly. I have an ok financial education, so I didn't take away a lot of new information from this book. But the organization and emphasis made abstract concepts sink in in a way they hadn't before. After completing it, I feel adequately prepared to begin a healthier financial life.
It is very repetitive. Very repetitive. But I never felt unprepared for a concept he introduced, and my retention is a lot higher than other non-fiction books I've read in the last few y The fundamentals, covered thoroughly.
