“It’s not often a book is written that could completely change the mindset of a generation… but I believe Scott has written that book.”
Brandon Turner, best-selling author of The Book on Rental Property Investing

Building wealth is always possible, even while working full-time, earning a median income, and paying off debt. By layering philosophy with practical knowledge, Set for Life gives people in their twenties and thirties an action plan to conquer their financial goals early in life. With more than 140,000 copies sold, this anniversary edition gets a refresh with new content, updated numbers, and even more valuable tips and tricks learned over the last five years.

Scott Trench—real estate investor, co-host of the BiggerPockets Money Podcast, and CEO of BiggerPockets—demonstrates how to accumulate a lifetime of wealth over a short time. Even starting with zero savings, you can go from a five-figure income to six figures, from an active job to passive income, then finally to the ultimate goal of financial independence.

Set yourself up for life as early as possible, and enjoy life on your terms!
  • Save more income (50+ percent of it) while still having fun
  • Double or triple your income in 3–5 years
  • Track your financial progress in order to achieve the greatest results
  • Build frugal and efficient habits to make the most of your lifestyle
  • Secure “real” assets and avoid “false” ones that destroy wealth
  • Use real estate and stock investing to generate passive income
  • And much more!

Easy and great read!

I’ve been wanting this book for a while after hearing about it on Bigger Pockets. It is an easy read for anyone to follow. I enjoyed reading from start to finish.

Good book!
Easy to read and very practical!!!

David C. (Clifton, NJ)
Great overall guidance and perspective on money

Even though I am mostly aware of the FI mentality and strategies, this book was still a great read to help solidify what I knew and also still got me thinking about other things in my life I hadn't considered. Someone with little awareness of money management would definitely benefit reading this. The path is not easy but this at least gives you great direction on financial independence, even when you are starting with very little.

Excellent read! I enjoyed the layout of this plan that guides you from the very first step of saving, through purchase! Thank you!

Dominick P. (Palatine, IL)
Best book to gift

This book perfectly summarizes all of the important concepts of what Bigger Pockets stands for. I have bought a few copies to give to friends so they understand what I mean when I blabber about real estate investing and financial freedom. Scott does an amazing job to explaining the concepts so someone with no knowledge can easily understand. 10/10
