From the Publisher
"I love this book! It's wickedly witty and wonderfully wise - a Canadian icon returns just in time."
Senator Pamela Wallin
"Dave Chilton is the only guy who can effectively teach you the way to financial security using Oscar Wilde, evolution, the pains of horse racing and the price of Nibs. If I can apply even half of what I learned in this very funny book to my life, it will ease my mother's mind, and for that I will be eternally grateful."
George Stroumboulopoulos, CBC Host
"If you've always thought of money as a dry and dusty subject, let Dave show you just how interesting it can be. While you're at it, learn a thing or two about your personal motivation and how to point it in the right direction. And laugh your socks off, too! I thoroughly enjoyed this book!"
Gail Vaz-Oxlade, TV Host of Til Debt Do Us Part and Financial Author
"The Task Force on Financial Literacy can stop dithering. All it has to do is distribute Dave Chilton's long-awaited The Wealthy Barber Returns."
Jonathan Chevreau National Post Columnist and Author of Findependence
"Very funny. Very smart. This fast-paced journey through the world of personal finance will help a lot of people. I loved it!"
Amanda Lang, CBC Senior Business Correspondent
"A simple plan for a better financial future: Read this book. It's down to earth, fun to read and wise to all the mistakes people make in managing money."
Rob Carrick, Personal Finance Columnist, The Globe and Mail
"From the man who encouraged millions of people to save for the future, The Wealthy Barber Returns arrives when Canadians need it most. Another generation will be richer because of Chilton's funny, heartfelt and timely book."
Pat Foran, CTV News
"Dave is the king of common sense and writes in a way that everyone can understand. I love his key points: Financial planning is surprisingly straightforward. Simplicity works. Pay yourself first and get out of your own way. Too much credit can kill you."
Ellen Roseman, Personal Finance Columnist at the Toronto Star and Blogger at Moneyville.ca
"The Wealthy Barber Returns should be on the desk of every politician, chief, parent and teacher in North America. Dave speaks like the great chiefs of the past by reminding us that success is far more than money and material possessions."
Chief Clarence Louie, CEO, Osoyoos Indian Band Development Corp.
"I seldom endorse books but I'm happy to make an exception in this case. The Wealthy Barber Returns is good, practical advice written in a clear, concise and engaging style. If you, like most Canadians, are looking for ways to improve your financial situation, this is the place to start."
Malcolm Hamilton, Partner, Mercer
"Brilliant! I liked it even better than The Wealthy Barber. If we incorporate even a couple of Dave's ideas into our financial lives, we'll be much richer for it and not merely in monetary terms."
Ram Balakrishnan, CanadianCapitalist.com
"Chilton's good, old-fashioned advice and fresh insights will help you spend, save and invest more effectively. His entertaining, punchy style ensures that you will benefit from his seasoned wisdom into both what works and what doesn't."
Talbot Stevens, Financial Author and Speaker
About the Author
Dave Chilton is an economics graduate from Wilfrid Laurier University. In 1985, he won the award for the highest mark in the country on the Canadian Securities Course. Cheating was never proven but widely suspected. In 1989, he released The Wealthy Barber. It went on to sell an astonishing two million copies in Canada. After milking his one and only good idea for years, Dave left the personal-finance field to home-school his children. His daughter escaped after a few months, but his son served out his entire sentence of three years less a day. Both children somehow overcame the experience and are now attending university. Over the years, Dave also published the bestselling cookbooks Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates and Eat, Shrink & Be Merry! along with authors Janet and Greta Podleski. Adding no value but taking a third of the profits, guilt finally overwhelmed Dave and he left the sisters' business in 2007. They just recently noticed. His true professional passion, however, remains the area of personal finance, where he tries to mix humour and common sense to help people handle their money more wisely. A frequent guest on national TV and radio shows, and a much sought-after speaker, Dave lives just outside Waterloo, Ontario.
