Book Review: The White Coat Investor

The White Coat Investor: A Doctor’s Guide To Personal Finance And Investing written by Dr. James M. Dahle is an excellent overview of many of the financial issues that face physicians. At 157 pages, it is not meant to be an exhaustive review of each topic; that being said, I found the length of the book to be just right, especially for a busy practicing physician.

The book starts with medical school and progresses through the attending years. Each chapter addresses an important topic that is salient to physicians. I found the chapters on life insurance, taxes, and estate planning very interesting because I had little understanding of these topics.

If you are ignorant like me about many financial concepts, this book is a must have! You may need to read deeper on certain topics, but again, this book is not meant to be exhaustive; it provides a much needed solid foundation on which doctors can build their financial futures. A 5 star book that I will read and re-read as the years go on.
