I like it because I can read as many complete little stories as I want, and never have to put the book down without knowing the outcome.

Very good information in this book, written where even a financial idiot can understand.

I've always read Clark Howard's books and often refer to his web page, and this book does not disappoint.

It's 330 pages long, but it broken up into 14 topics. Each topic gives the story of 3 different consumers, the problems they faced, and how they overcame them. At the end of each story are bullet point financial tips and references to helpful websites.

The chapters include:

Credit
Homes and Real Estate
Cars
Technology
Retirement
Investing
Energy
Living Below Your Means
Entrepreneurship
Travel
Family
Health Care
Working and Learning
The Empowered Consumer

One story was about "recycling" your home and using it differently. I live in a tourist center (San Diego) and have an empty room that I'm fixing up to rent out through a hostel site. I'll give updates on how that works out for me.

This book is so full of ideas and inspiration that it's worth a hundred times its price. Highly recommend.

Thanks for taking the time to read my review, and I hope you found it helpful in making a purchase decision.

Format: Paperback
In CLARK HOWARD'S "LIVING LARGE FOR THE LONG HAUL" the book is American as it's Red, White, and Blue Cover. The book features many short American success stories that others have shared with Howard along his journey's in finding empowerment for the people. I believe sometimes as American's we tend to forget how great our company is and how being mindful, thoughtful, and thorough it can lead us to a fountain of success. In this day and age when some are frustrated or lost in a down beat economy, Clark shares with us stories of how to bounce back smarter than before. The Stories shared in this book such as Steve "the SOLAR SAVER" or "OFF GRID" are reminders on how we can be proactive towards savings while turning it into a profit. Some other stories such as "Around the World on a Dime" and Arthur Blank's midlife fire turned into a blessing are great reads too. The book is an easy read compared to some others and if you're looking for true experienced pointers on investing, housing, retirement or even your boomerang college kid, Living Large for the Long Haul is a must read. If you're looking to bounce back, smile or funnel other success stories into your own passion you have found the right book.

I pre-ordered this eBook and eagerly awaited it's arrival, to my Kindle Fire. The first day, I read 60% of the eBook. Then I put the eBook down for a couple of weeks, to retain all the stories and nuggets of wisdom, into my mind.

This eBook, drew me back to finish reading it. So many stories about the struggles and the many different ways of thriving and surviving, coming out ahead in these tough economic times. Amazing people, giving hope by sharing their stories and nuggets of wisdom. They rock!

This is the BEST eBook of 2013, that I've read and treasured. This eBook, is worth way more than the price of the eBook itself! It's an eBook of hope and living your best life, despite of these tough economic times.

Thank you, Clark Howard, Mark Meltzer and Theo Thimou, for writing this book. I'm eagerly looking forward to reading any new future books, written by you.

This book takes a different approach from any other personal finance book. Clark's stories are taken from regular folks who were challenged financially for a variety of reasons, yet they figured out ways to overcome those obstacles. He shares unique recommendations rarely seen in other books. I couldn't put it down because it read like fiction, but it was based on true stories!
