i typed that on the phone in a hurry because as xkcd put it “somebody was wrong on the internet” but to elaborate,
a) Jaime Lewis and I are more or less in agreement about Stuart McRobert. The guy’s a bitch. (not going to link to Chaos & Pain because I don’t want to subject anyone to pics of rotting corpses, find it yourself, I recommend using google and an image blocker)
b) Bold claims require more evidence. Andrew Tobias is one of my favorite financial writers. He talks about buying things in bulk to save money, avoiding scams, and putting your money into safe investments. If I found out that Andrew Tobias’ net worth was $100,000, it wouldn’t upset me. Robert Kiyosaki has wild advice about flipping properties, starting corporations, etc, that fly in the face of conventional wisdom. His net worth is high but it is almost all from selling how-to-get-rich information. Nassim Taleb is a guy with a lot of wild opinions, but he is also quite wealthy by being right when the conventional wisdom was wrong.
So if i am going to follow someone’s advice to squat every day I would rather listen to be from someone like Abidjaev, Broz, or Damien Pezzuti, since squatting every day is seemingly absurd and takes a lot of time. I’m not saying that Matthew Perryman is weak. I just do not know very much about how much he can lift.
