Millionaire By Thirty
The Quickest Path to Early Financial Independence

by Douglas R. Andrew, Emron D. Andrew, Aaron R. Andrew
Read by the authors

      The Andrew family's enthusiasm and excitement for making a lot of money at an early age is skillfully captured in their new audiobook, Millionaire By Thirty. For this particular book the format creates a challenge that doesn't exist when reading directly from a hard copy. If you will be reading this book during a commute or a hands-free activity, be aware that it is difficult to stop and jot down the various internet links or complete the exercises mentioned throughout the book. Others who are new to the financial scene might also find themselves continually pressing the rewind button as some of the concepts are difficult to fully grasp the first time around.

Aside from the issues with format, much of the financial advice presented runs counter to ideas currently being promoted to accumulate wealth. My spouse and I decided that since neither one of us is anywhere close to a millionaire yet (he is a few months shy of 30 and I am considerably older) and we are using a more traditional approach to financial planning, there might be some serious benefits to considering the options presented by the Andrews. A key to success with this program is starting early - right out of college if possible (which makes this a perfect graduation gift). Though it is not impossible to accumulate gains using this method as you get older, having less discretionary income and flexibility is a factor. Finally, keep in mind that this is not a get-rich-quick scheme, but a long term investment strategy.
