Canadian Writes Best-Selling Investment Book

O Canada, you're a nation making waves. First Adbusters, a Canadian activist group, came up with the idea to Occupy Wall Street. Now, as of November 17, Andrew Hallam, a Canadian school teacher, has the best-selling investment guide on Amazon: Millionaire Teacher, the Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School.

Hallam writes simply and clearly (that's not easy, folks!). Judging from a quick sampling, he does a nice job of coaxing readers to live within their means in order to put aside a little money for investment.

In the U.S., Hallam notes, as of 2009 most homes valued at a million dollars or more were not owned by millionaires. "The majority of million-dollar homes were owned by non-millionaires with large mortgages and expensive tastes."
