Nice book title… I actually thought it was about how to best win the lottery, automatically making me a millionaire. Where is that book!? They have us reading this book in my Personal Finance class. I actually procrastinated on starting the near 300-page thing and then had only 2 days to read it and write a 5-page report on it. If I were an automatic millionaire I wouldn’t have to worry about crap like reading… I’d just hire me a personal reader… some poor person who sat outside the bathroom door and read to me. I’d never have to use my brain again for as long as I lived!
FYI… pretty sure author dude is NOT related to Johann Sebastian… Johann would have been the poor brother… I just learned he was a miserly dude during his lifetime. Only after his death did his music catch on. That’s what’s wrong with people these days. No one cares how fabulous you are until you’ve kicked the bucket!
The book title is a play on words. If you automate the savings from your paycheck before you actually see it, you can eventually have a nice retirement nest egg. It’s so sad how often my Personal Finance text refers to my 30-some-odd age as “old.” They keep saying stuff like you need to start saving young… blah, blah, blah, blah, blah… because by the time you’re in your 30s you’ve missed a whole section of compound interest. Anyone have any clue how I can erase approximately 10 years off my age? I need a do over… and automatically! This is a pretty good read if anyone wants to research how to start young and automate your millionaire status. Forget about it if you’re geezerly like me, though. I’m so old they might as well start scraping up my petrified wood limbs and start a fire. JOKES!! I did find a bunch of good advice here… now to put it into action!
Question of the Day: Did you ever take Personal or Family Finance? Any good book recommendations on the subject?
