"One of the most effective tools for teaching personal
finance basics. We've made it a key part of our financial
"Chilton has probably motivated more people to take actual
control of their personal financial lives than any other speaker
or writer has in this decade."
Get Rich Slowly. . . and Steadily!
In this new and updated edition of one of the biggest-selling
financial-planning books ever, David Chilton simplifies the
complex puzzles of personal finance and helps you achieve
financial independence. With the help of his fictional barber,
Roy, and a large dose of humor, Chilton shows you how you
can take control of your financial future—slowly, steadily,
and with sure success. Chilton's plan (detailed in an
entertaining story) is no get-rich-quick scheme, but it does
make financial independence possible on nothing more than
an average salary. Even if you consider yourself a financial
"basket case," Chilton explains how you can easily put an
effective financial plan into action.

Chapter 10 Graduation
The wisest tips on how to develop a financial plan are of
little use if they are not conveyed in an understandable
manner—a manner that responds effectively to the questions and concerns of the reader. Likewise, the most
articulately expressed thoughts on finance may be wasted if
they are not presented in an entertaining style—a style that
maintains the interest of the reader.
So how does one write an understandable and entertaining financial planning book?
I hope and believe that The Wealthy Barber answers
that question by taking a "novel" approach to the teaching
of financial planning.
Rather than inundating you with intimidating charts and
graphs and a series of lifeless numbers, The Wealthy Barber
will both entertain and inform you. Through fictional
conversations between Roy Miller, our financial hero, and
his barbershop patrons, you will learn that sound financial
planning is not only relatively simple, but it can also be fun.
I wish you good reading and good planning.

I LOVE APRIL. I WOULDN'T trade it for two of any other
month. Except perhaps for October. Two Octobers would
mean twice as many birthday presents—and Oktoberfests!
Why April? Weather-wise, it offers neither the best of
summer nor the best of winter. It certainly doesn't provide
the beauty of the fall months. Is it because, at least to poets
and romantics, it symbolizes a new beginning, a kind of
I love April for three reasons: the National Basketball
Association playoffs, the National Hockey League playoffs,
and the essence of life itself—a new Major League Baseball
season. Ah, April. Paradise on earth!
Thanks to my remote control, I can sit motionless,
flicking back and forth between the Pistons on NBC and the
Red Wings on FOX, while listening to my beloved Tigers
on WJR. When you throw in picture-in-picture and a VCR,
the possibilities are endless.
In addition to being professional sports' finest hour,
April also ushers in the start of the golf season and
