I have read my share of financial planning books in recent years, and normally, they are rather dull, dry, and boring. The language is often difficult to understand, and I walk away from the book knowing that the book is written well, but it does not inspire changes in my life.
What a breath of fresh air this book is! First of all, it is written in ordinary, layman's English, and anyone can understand what the author is proposing. I know nothing about investing or anything like that, but the book is not technical--it is inspiring! The principles that are explicated bleed into other areas of life as well. Personal stories from both the author and his wife (a fantastic blogger, by the way!) caused the stories to truly come alive. While I did not immediately make dramatic changes, I was reminded to make goals and follow through (which I am in the process of doing). The author is very open about how he himself is struggling at times to implement his own suggestions. He emphasizes that this is a process; it is not an overnight sensation.
I highly recommend this readable book to anyone who is ready to make changes in his/her life, financial or not. Definitely worth the investment!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
