Life is getting more and more expensive. The cost of living keeps going up, pensions have dwindled and are taking longer than ever to pay out, and people are having to work more and longer for the same (or lower) quality of life. The postapocalyptic recession has left many businesses having to start again.
This book will help you live a low-cost high life and is a 25-year voyeuristic journey on how to become wealthy and successful in these most unique times.
In listening to this book now, you'll discover:
Mark Homer became a financially free multimillionaire businessman investor by the time he was in his early 30s. In this unique book he shows you in his renowned analytical, detailed, and controversially skeptical nature how you can realistically achieve the low-cost high life for the long term in the shortest possible timeframe.

Managed to listen to Marks story whilst driving mostly. Lots of information to take in. I have to listen to the CD again as there were parts which were sooo funny... I missed bits and didn't want to rewind I just wanted to hear more of Marks life. Loved it.... More please
I am working my way through all of Progressive's books and this is one of my favourites so far.
Mark Homer comes across as understated rather than overhyped and I like the way that he lays out how basic concepts can make a massive difference.
Although this book has something for investors at all levels I would recommend it to intermediate property investors who perhaps have a small portfolio and are wondering how guys like Mark Homer (and Rob Moore) grew their portfolio and property business at an exponential rate in such a short time.
Looking forward to Uncommon Sense ...
Mark is a property genius and a teacher. There are some good tips in here but not much more than money supermarket and rich dad poor dad combined. The real shame is I know he has so much more specific knowledge that he hasn't shared. Like many others in this sector do. However there seems to be a number of other property investors moving into education that give away all their tips and my lower review is based on him holding back a lot more useful information.
Also this reader is terrible, and sounds like he would best suit reading the beano. Thanks anyway, it was still enjoyable.
very informative with great humour underpinning it. If only I had book to listen to when I started out in my career.
Stuart, Marks father
yes it was, first time ever!
He spent literally half the book bad mouthing this Chris, who he worked for at Acorn. I think this time could be better spent on sharing something useful with the listener.
It was spoken in very 'Radio Ad' like manner. Reminded me of something from an old Tesco advert or from a radio station. No matter what the material discussed the tone was always the same and I don't feel that he told the story well. After about 20 minutes I found his voice irritating and just wanted the book to end.
I feel let down by this book. At the risk of sounding like a complete contrarian (as other people seem to love it) I don't feel that it is very informative for the time spent listening to it.
Literally half of this audiobook is spent slagging off his old boss Chris, who yes does sound like a prat but the fact that the author spends so much time badmouthing him and referring to the way 'not to do business'.
This makes me think less of the author and I feel that maybe he should have either confronted Chris properly (as his now business partner did) at the time or go into therapy maybe before wasting 4 hours of my time. He could have just as easily condensed this into a short 20 minutes tops, to convey how not to do business.
I found the book hard to listen to as much of the advice seemed very basic and obvious. Maybe a good read for an absolute beginner in business but it should literally be chopped in half to save the listener time.
Sorry to be negative about what I'm sure a lot of people love, but I'm not sold on this one. :/
Although I found the beginning a little slow and stopped listening for a while. Which was probably due to my mindset at the time. When I restarted the book I found it very informative, interesting and motivational. This has lead me to purchase more audio books on property investing. Not all by the same author though, as I like to get other views on a subject. All in all a great book if you are looking at starting out or need some motivation in the property investing and business field.
Very autobiographical and interesting. Certainly can inspire and a number of very useful tips. Definitely worth a listen
With this book I gained understanding of financial, Mark ensured that everything was well illustrated to the minimum details, which help me identify my own limiting beliefs regarding managing my own finances.
The Author made clear that we can become responsible for doing and controlling our finances in sophisticated ways without using too much technical jargon, which makes it accessible for everyone, including my son that is only 12 years old.
Yes I did. He gave emphasis where he could, nonetheless on a personal note I like Mark's voice better since I had the opportunity to listen to many of his talks.
Yes, it made me realise how important it is for to gain financial control in order to improve my life and loved ones, whilst making a contribution towards others.
Next time I would love to hear Mark Homers' voice instead to give a personal touch to the book.
Worth a go!
The last hour probably had the most use and lots of little tips. The first half of the book was a bit long and biographical.
Worth sticking with as it gets better as it goes along. Some useful insights and tips and you certainly feel the approaches could be copied.
