He basically regurgitates stuff that you can learn more fully elsewhere. Get this if you have never learned about or are extremely new to indexing or personal finance.

I am an Emergency Physician and definitely added a few extra tools to help have these conversations with patients. I think in Emergency Medicine it is particularly difficult because in acute situations we rarely have the luxury of time or prognostic accuracy to give justice to this complex conversation. I hope that one day palliative care physicians can help educate all of us but particularly oncologists and primary care docs to have these conversations early. In an ideal world the conversation could happen with a palliative care doctor but this is unlikely.

As a book I think it is worth a listen though it does drag on quite a bit. There are some pearls but it could probably be 1/3 the length

Good general book but not very applicable for Canadians. He has some good broad concepts if that’s what you are looking for

I am very new to learning about real estate. I feel like I could have written this book by googling some general real estate advice. It glances off way too many topics. It says everything and nothing all at the same time.
Buy low sell high. Do your research. Don’t get into bad deals. That’s the synopsis.
