This book was such disappointment! I bought it because I've seen all the reviews and I thought it would be good, but it's not! I'm sorry I gave my money for it! The book is boring, patronizing, obsessive. How on earth could you track down every cent you ever earned in your life? Or your allowance? A lot of the book is philosophical and not practical. When they started talking about Adam and Eve I freaked out. What's that got to do with your money? I really tried to read it (because I paid for it), but when I came near the end of the book, I just gave up. I couldn't take it anymore, it was so awful. I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I'm wondering why so many people find it useful!

This book was a bit of a disappointment. It was more of a political statement about the evils of US materialism VS Gaia. However, it did point out that time is money and we all have limited amout of that. Otherwise it was more of downward mobility primer for dropping out of society much like one sees in survivalism literature.

Stay in long term bonds sums up the advice for investors. You would have done well over the past three years, but in the long run stocks do outperform bonds. Still, as in investment analyst, I would recommend this to those who are risk averse.

He spends his time moralizing about the evils of western society rather than giving a practical workable system for managing family finances. When he gets around to a system it's overly encumbered with record keeping and unworkable.
A good book only for the most fastidious accountant.

I was looking for sound advice. What I got was some sort of new age philosophy junk. There is very little in this book that is useful. This was a waste of money for me.

As I researched the topic of simple living, this book kept getting recommended, so I bought it. However, I could not make it through the whole book without becoming nauseated by all the liberal BS woven throughout the entire book. Plus, being a financial analyst, I thought their financial schpiel was very elementary and overly redundant. I became so irritated with the authors' liberal crap being forced down my throat that I actually threw the book in the trash can. A far better book on the simplicity movement (IMHO) is The Simple Living Guide, by Janet Luhrs.
