White Coat Investor

Originally targeted towards medical profession, this book seemed interested, so I ordered an audiobook. Did I regret? You can read the review to find out.

Would you like to get better with the personal finance?

Who wouldn’t right?

You’re not alone, if you still think that some things in your wallet happen by accident. And often you forget and later are surprised.

Many of us are like this, and often getting a good advise of how to change this stage of things is challenging.

This book could be a remedy. Originally targeted towards doctors, I’ve found it very useful as an engineer. Just smart part of this book is directed towards medical procession. Most of it is universal.

It’s a walk-through the topic of IRA, 401k, 403b’s, investing in real-estate, low-cost index funds and has some general advises on saving money.

There are numbers and calculations mentioned. This is very good.

What’s the best about this book is the author did so much research that the book seems like a competent and relevant source of knowledge.

I didn’t get the part about the backdoor Roth 401k. If you pick this book up and get to this chapter where it’s explained, you can let me know if you’ve understood it fully. I’ll have to re-read this part of the book after a short break, I guess.

Just take a look at author’s website and the number of references. The titles seem great and I think I’ll try to pick some of other references positions in the future.
