Publisher's Summary

The incredible story of how a schoolteacher built a million-dollar portfolio, and how you can too.... 

Most people wouldn't expect a schoolteacher to amass a million-dollar investment account. But Andrew Hallam did so, long before the typical retirement age. And now, with Millionaire Teacher, he wants to show you how to follow in his footsteps. With lively humor and the simple clarity you'd expect from a gifted educator, Hallam demonstrates how average people can build wealth in the stock market by shunning the investment products peddled by most financial advisors and avoiding the get-rich-quicker products concocted by an ever widening, self-serving industry. 

Using low-cost index funds, coupled with a philosophy in line with the one that made Warren Buffett a multi-billionaire, Hallam guides readers to understand how the stock and bond markets really work, arming you with a psychological advantage for when markets fall. 

  • Shows why young investors should hope for stock market crashes if they want to get rich. 
  • Explains how you can spend just 60 minutes a year on your investments, never open a financial paper, avoid investment news, and still leave most professional investors in the dust. 
  • Promotes a unique new investment methodology that combines low cost index funds and a Warren Buffett-esque investment philosophy. 

Millionaire Teacher explains how any middle-income individual can learn can learn the ABCs of personal finance and become a multi-millionaire, from a schoolteacher who has been there and done that.

Content is great, but engagement is lacking

Really good, straightforward and simple, but the narration and delivery is poor. Trying to read out tables is not really needed (certainly to the levels they go to) and makes an audio book hard to listen to, while listing every "www." throughout the book is unnecessary and frustrating. It is a shame because the content is so useful and important and something that everybody should understand. Persevere through the mundane delivery and it is a simple and clear bible to financial management.

Great info, could cut back on some of the details.

Great book, lots of good information but sometimes went into great detail. Personally, I am a make your point and move on type, so at times this book was repetitive. But, again, Great book!

Message fine but just a negative guy

While the message could be good, it was hard to get past his use of putting down others ... IE... nba players, financial advisors ... using phrases like “ you don’t have to smarter than a 5th grader” . Seems to lack the spiritual laws of wealth and abundance and the simple rules of joy and not tuning into feelings of scarcity .

Great book could have been said in fewer words

Loved the advice, but there were lots of examples for each point made which made the book unnecessarily long.
