If you want your hand held very tightly and things explained slowly and methodically to you, this is the book for you. Or perhaps you enjoy the mental masturbation of someone telling you how bad it is to buy stuff, subtly congratulating you for not doing so. You also might enjoy it if you like metaphors that are wildly inaccurate, like this one that tries to make you understand money through something more 'tangible':

"Our life energy is more real in our actual experience than money. You could even say money equals our life energy. So, while money has no intrinsic reality, our life energy does--at least to us. It's tangible, and it's finite."

Maybe I'm stupid, but how is 'life energy' more tangible than money? You can literally touch money; can you do that with life energy?

Obviously, I didn't enjoy the book's tone or pacing, but even the ideas contained within it are dubious. One of the first things that the book tells you to do is to make an inventory of every little thing in your house, only leaving out things that might be worth less than $1. Talk about a high investment of time for questionable value. Irrespective of this example, though, the book has a very low signal-to-noise ratio; you have to read through 5-10 pages of the same idea regurgitated 100 different ways before another one comes along.

I'd recommend Early Retirement Extreme instead, which has a much higher proclivity to present novel ideas. The reason I gave this book more than 1 star is because I think that for someone who isn't as sold on the concept of financial independence, it could be useful to have information be relayed at a more leisurely pace.

This book didn't fully sink in until I read it the second time a few years later. At that point, I was ready to take the concepts fully to heart, and it changed the course of my life. If you don't get through it the first time, put it down for a couple years and try again. ( )

This is a fantastic book. It illustrates what is important in life. ( )

I would describe many books as life-changing. Whether or not they are, they felt like it at the time. Few of those end in meaningful day to day changes in my behavior or actions. This book is different. It goes far deeper than what I thought were the foundations of financial planning and one's relationship with money.

I'm in the process of re-reading while following the steps in full depth. As a very clear picture emerges of how much life I have to trade for simple pleasures, the desire to chase these pleasures is dissolving. This book leads to a massive amount of soul-searching. I haven't evaluated my life this much since I exited high school and was thrown head first into a university before knowing what I wanted to do or why to do it.

Perhaps I can make a more coherent review when my head stops spinning. I do know that I'll be recommending this book to anyone open to a shakedown of their life. This is so much more than a book about money. It's a huge upgrade for your life's operating system. ( )

The investment strategy (earn double-digit returns on government bonds) is dated, but the core message is still au currant. ( )
