The Millionaire Maker – Video Book Review

I am often put off by books about making money. Or I was. After reading Robert Kiyosaki’s book, I started scooping up plenty of books about making money, to see which ones were helpful and which ones just talked a good game.

One of the best of the bunch is Loral Langemeier’s The Millionaire Maker: Act, Think, and Make Money the Way the Wealthy Do (amazon affiliate link). I say this because the Millionaire Maker has a lot of actionable how-to information in it. Here’s a quick video review:

The best part of the book, to me, is that Langemeier’s “wealth cycle” makes sense to apply to multiple situations. Are you out of work and needing to get back up again? There are ideas (though I’d probably recommend Dave Ramsey’s book if you’re really struggling). Are you barely making ends meet? This book is dead center spot on for you. Are you making decent money, but freaked out about whether it’ll just dry up some day? Perfect book for you.

The trick, according to Langemeier, isn’t just knowing what to do; it’s knowing the sequence in which you should do everything. From my perspective (and my practice over the last few months), she’s spot on. I can highly recommend this book.

Here’s the details on the book:

People always ask which camera I used to shoot my video. I use the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 (that’s a review of the camera).

    I really enjoyed your video analysis. Sometimes I will look through books in this niche and I actually do tend to visualize my future success. All in all, people who love this type of stuff really need to understand that it is up to them to build their success.

    I find it amusing for books offering you to become millionaires. The thing is, if that really worked for the author, it may not necessarily mean it will work for every reader. The reader is made to believe that it is easy to make money but the thing is that requires a lot a of hard work, perseverance and creativity.

    Thanks Chris. I just finished your book (Trust Agents) an hour ago. Awesome. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. An excellent (out of the box) book on money is, “The Trick to Money is Having Some”, by Stuart Wilde. Happy reading!

    But it isn’t true. Making money doesn’t always require hard work, perseverance, etc. I would argue that there are folks making a lot of money that work a lot less than the average migrant worker.

    This book advocates a financial strategy that is a source of the US worst economy since the great depression. A core component of the author’s book is to take equity our of your home (which would hard for most in 2010) and buy rental income property. It was written in 2005 and published in 2006. The height of the housing bubble.

    I read the first two chapters, scanned the rest then tossed the book. Smarter for the experience albeit not a millionaire.

    hi Chris! I chanced by your blog coz i was initially looking for reviews on the panasonic lx5, but god sidetracked by your good content here! btw, your videos are really clear and sharp! if i may ask, what program do you use, if you’re using any, to convert the .mts fvideo file from the camera? i have been trying to upload vids on youtube but they always come out blurry or dark or pixelated. i just would always upload the .mts file directly since i don’t know of any converter online. any advice to get my vids as sharp as yours? Thanks!
