Recommended to me by an American physician. I don't think this is of interest to an audience beyond that. The question then is whether this is the best book for physicians. If you're a med student or resident and will read this because it has a stethoscope on the cover, and you refuse to read anything else on the topic, then this book will be very valuable. But if you can get past the white coat, I think there are better options. The irony of this book is that the central premise is doctors are [...]
Extremely useful introThis book is an excellent introduction to finances for any physician, especially one in residency, or medical student. I highly recommend it to anyone/everyone in our profession. It was recommended to me by a senior resident my first year of residency, and I have been passing it on ever since.
This is an amazing book that taught me a lot that I never knew about personal finance. Doctors spend hundreds of hours reading different texts, but often know nothing about how to handle money. This book has inspired me to do more reading on subjects like personal finance, taxes, investment, real estate, and retirement.
This is an easily understood book that provides a small glimpse of the financial situation that high income earners are in and how to handle the burden of being a high income earner. Specifically this is tailored to physicians and I would hesitate to recommend this book to anyone outside of some sort of medical profession.A small portion of the book is a summary of the very excellent "The Millionaire Next Door" which leads me to recommend reading that first. This could be seen almost as an adden [...]
This book is not horribly detailed, but it is easy to read. It is broken down in to manageable chapters. Each chapter also offers you more reference material, both books and websites. My husband will graduate from medical school this June. While I would consider myself well knowledges in debt removal/avoidance, this is a good time to begin looking forward: what do we do with this new income, and how do we keep it safe. This book is a great starting point for that.
A good succinct read. Initially I felt it was full of self promotion, but ultimately there was good financial advice on multiple levels. Like most wealth development books I left it feeling inspired to be responsible in my saving and future. The most powerful advice that I found was for MD's to leverage tax free retirement savings. This included the "stealth IRA/HSA". I hope to be able to follow up on some of his later investment advice.
A fabulous review on basics in finance that pertain to physicians—pre medical student, medical students, residents, fellows, new Attendings and out of training Attendings. All can gain insight and pearls from this books. I highly recommend Themis book to anyone who knows nothing of personal finance and needs a jump start into becoming financially healthy.
Pretty awesome introduction to managing one's finances. It's geared specifically for doctors, but I think anyone could learn more than a thing or two from reading this book. Basically, you want to live below your means, put an emergency fund away, save a lot more for retirement than you think you'll need, and be really careful about who you hire to manage your finances, if you hire anyone.
Game changer for most DocsThis book changed my life and my family's future. This is my second time through it. It is a practical action plan to taking back the control we all give up some time during the long road of training we endure. Easy to read and understand. Thank God for the white coat investor.
Anyone thinking about going into the medical field should read this book. Anyone already in medical school should read this book. Anyone in residency should read this book. Any physician should read this book. This book is a great introduction to the specific financial issues doctors face in their careers.
Required Reading for (New) Physicians Good into to many financial topics that the average young physician has probably never even heard of. Likely a good starting point to further reading. I would recommend to others.
An internet search is free. This book is 10$. Choose wisely. While I did learn a few things through this book, I should have realized that using a search engine and the power of the internet, I probably would have learnt a lot more and understood better.
Straightforward and readable presentation of basic personal finance information for the physician with very limited prior knowledge of the topic. I found this book very useful and will be referencing it again in the future.
Glad i boughtThis is a great,well written book. As a MS3 at a very expensive school I found this book very helpful and hopeful. Will carry this information with me throughout my career and beyond
Excellent resourceEasy read filled with great information and even better links for more resources. Really should be read by every doctor, and this is coming from someone who hates finances, taxes, and all things saving.
If you are a professional of any kind, this book will help you save tons of money in the long run. It is one of the most helpful, straight forward, easy to follow, BS free, sales job for other products free, financial book I have ever read.
Should be required reading for all resident physicians. Simple, easy steps that any high-earning professional can take to pay down debt, invest wisely to build wealth, reduce taxes, and protect themselves from financial disaster. Great high-yield intro to personal finance.
Overall great read. Author is very conservative in views of how you should live and what you should do with your money, but regardless, lots of good info presented at a basic level able to be understood by most without financial background.
I used audible and listen whenever I'm tired. Repeatedly. This is not just a one time book, but lessons pretty valuable, simple, and applicable. It's also very inspirational for me to pace out the map for my future!
Great read for any healthcare professionalDoesn't matter if you're a student/resident/new professional or someone who has been working for a few years, there are a ton of helpful tidbits and virtues to live by.
Fantastic intro to finance; easy read. I'll likely follow up on the other books the author recommended.
Excellent introduction to finance for people who have never read a book on finance. Great resources cited for additional information and exploration. It is a must read for every physician!
Awesome Highly recommend this book for anyone who went to grad school and has debt! Easy read. Great book on personal finance
Perhaps it's a bit late to start thinking about financial plans for retirement 😳. Some good info in this book. Really did not like the narrator though.
Great read!!!Very simple and eye opening experience for someone like me just starting out in my attending life and investment prospects. A good foundation to build upon.
Good financial book for people who have gone through long training programs with minimal financial background, subsequent high student debt, and delayed incomes and are playing financial catch up.
Excellent book on personal finance tailored toward the physician career. The lessons are immediately applicable as I begin my residency training.
Easy to read, but very basic. Suggests many additional sources to go deeper.
Sound financial advice, especially for physicians. The author prioritizes sound financial advice over sound life advice (they are not the same thing) a bit too often for my tastes, but like any worthwhile doctor: you can like their advice even if you don't always like them.
This book is a very good read for anyone in the medical field as it pertains specifically to the unique course doctors take on their road to financial freedom (i.e. a hell of a ton of debt first). This book was helpful to me because 1) I love reading about finances 2) My husband has already decided on a specialty and is in his final year of residency, therefore we are making a lot of financial decision at the moment and 3) We have specific financial goals and have already started laying the grou [...]
