and it blew my 15 years later I am retreading it find it just as compelling it blew my mind 15 years later I retreading it and find it just as compelling you gently gingerly into reevaluating you preconceived notions about money how much is enough and whether you really want to work in a conventional job track for 30 years hint if you Nature-Inspired Metaheuristic Algorithms don t there are other options The basic idea is that everyay you go to work you are choosing to trade your precious limited life energy for money So if you are spending it unconsciously on crap you aren t fully enjoying or a bigger housecar than you really need then you are effectively trading away hours of your life If you love your job and you love accumulating stuff then great But if you The Alchemical Mandala A Survey of the Mandala in the Western Esoteric Traditions dream ofoing other things with your life than staring at your monitor at work or even if you love your job but would The Alcohol Blackout: Walking, Talking, Unconscious Lethal do itifferently if money weren t an issue this book is for you Cornily written but the sincerity of the writers and value of the message supersede that 10 times over Reader beware the contents of this book might just shake the foundations of your lifeit Digital Feminist Activism: Girls and Women Fight Back Against Rape Culture did for me Easily the most lucid insightful and valuable book I ve read on money Probably because when it comesown to it the book is not really about money It s about what we re trading our life energy for The book had such a spiritual component to it that I was tempted to add it to my Buddhism bookshelfOne thing I gained from the book was an incentive to organize our finances from a total net worth perspective not just budgeting from paycheck to paycheck Also charting income vs expenses I ve found that mintcom is a very effective site for accomplishing the goals the book lays outThe book makes a strong case for not identifying your The Story of Han Xiangzi: The Alchemical Adventures of a Daoist Immortal (China Program Book) definition of yourself with your job For me personally this was probably the greatest single insight the book provided It made me realize how much I veone just that As the author says who you are is far greater than what you o for money and your true work is far greater than your paid employment I thought this was a pretty powerful uoteIndeed in terms of sheer hours we may be wedded to our jobs than our mates The vows for better for worse richer or poorer in sickness and health and often until eath o us part may be better applied to our jobs than our wives and husbandI suppose my only gripe with the book is the utopia of financial independence it paints where a person is able to live off the interest from their investments Although they make it sound like such a future can be right around the corner as someone with a pretty substantial amount of student ebt I ran some numbers and barring an unforeseen windfall that possibility is a loooong way off for us But even aside from the focus on the financial euivalent of enlightenment there is so much wisdom in this book both practical and philosophical that I would recommend it to anyone This book s most popular review is surprisingly negative 35 stars I agree with the 5 star Goodreads evangelists That said I have a few ualms with the book It s Race, Culture and Identity in Francophone West African and Caribbean Literature and Theory: From Negritude to Creolite (Francophone Cultures and Literatures, Vol. 32) dated and freuently redundant Like most personal finance books it s full of suspicious stories The Epilogue summarizes in 9 pages what has been beaten toeath in the previous 327At one point the author talks about being financially secure whether the Dow is under 1000 or above 4000 When the book was copyrighted in 1992 1000 was a crash and 4000 was ambitious As of 1162015 the Dow stands at 1751157 up about 450% since 1992 so the book s stock market wariness is exaggerated Also its advice to buy long term US treasury bonds is terrible The present interest rates on those bonds is pathetic 269% on a 30 year bond Read in 2015 Chapter 9 which Hot African American Erotica describes 6% US treasury bonds reads like a uaint historicalocumentThe other chapters though they occasionally make redundant arguments are valuable In essence the book advocates extreme thrift in an effort to get off the consumerist treadmill The goal is to live modestly and be time rich rather than to live large and be time poor It makes the compelling case that to always want something better is a recipe for perpetual unhappiness To uote Lao Tzu He who knows he has enough is richThe book is sort of like an early 90s version of Mr Money Mustache who actually posted an excellent review of the book Your Money or Your Life proposes a nine step programStep 1 Tally up all the money you ever made look around you and
