"The seminal guide to the new morality of personal money management." -Los Angeles Times
Eh. First three chapters were best.
Great insights. Very long winded and fluffy. The age of the book is evident in the writer’s style. Nonetheless, full of useful tips. Five stars if the sections irrelevant to money were cut out. Life advice is appreciated but the frequent tangents make the author seem unfocused.
Brilliant, simply brilliant
This book does more for you than budgeting or scrimping. It can transform your relationship with money, so spending less is more enjoyable, not a hardship; but only if you are willing to do the work.
The exercises in the book walk you through all you need to do. After working through this book, I went from credit card debt and 401k loans to spending less than I make, and consistently saving more and best of all doing it without deprivation, or suffering.
The Best Book On Gaining Financial Independence
This book opened my eyes in a myriad of ways. For starters, the idea that your money is your life energy, now forces me to look at what I spend my money on as a direct exchange for my time; mind blowing. It also gave me new perspective on work life balance, and truly asking myself what would I do in my life if I didn’t have to work? I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to escape the matrix of 40 hour work weeks, and experience true freedom.
