Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gift for family I saw Kevin O'Leary on Steven and Chris and his advice was so practical and well advised that I thought his books would be excellent for my children. So I bought both books for both of them for Christmas. I know it will be sound counsel for the kids now that they are ready to dip into the financial world and have families of their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On the Right Pathway I rarely read books and when i do its mainly in this category of finance. I have always admired Kevin O' Leary because he tells it how it is, Yes he may be a dick but he's not wrong and knows how to make money, this book has taught me a lot and intend to use the advice in this book everyday. Great book and great Read

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good advice, lots of common sense... I enjoyed reading this book... if only I could make all members of my family to read it... hidden message in the book? If you're in debt, don't borrow more money to buy O'Leary wines :-)

He gives you some of his personal history so you can relate to him better and have a better understanding of how he came to be who he is today. He gives solid, truthful advice that anyone could apply to their daily lives...A great book to read from cover to cover!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Reading As a person in the Financial Services Field I am always looking for good books to recommend to clients. Books with concrete ideas, that are geared to the average Canadian with easy to understand concepts. This book fits the bill on all counts. It was an easy read, it had easy to understand concepts written in such a way that made total sense. The advice in this book would make a significant difference to your financial health for years to come. As someone proficient in this area, even I found tips I can adopt to fine tune my financial well being. I would especially recommend this book to a young adult so they can make smart financial decisions from the beginning. Buy a copy, read it and pass it on to your university bound child as a graduation gift, they will thank you for it one day.

“Stressed out about the grown child who won’t leave your basement? Have family members circling like vultures now that you’re retired and saved your nest egg? Unable to climb out of debt? As if he were the Don Cherry of financial wisdom, O’Leary provides strongly worded, anecdote-driven answers, unafraid of the people he might offend.”
