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:
Homes and Real Estate
Living Below Your Means
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.
Clark Howard's Living Large for the Long Haul: Consumer-Tested Ways to Overhaul Your Finances, Increase Your Savings, and Get Your Life Back on Track
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.
I bring up Dave because Clark mentions one should find a guru, like Dave Ramsey, Suzy Orman, or himself. What exactly makes these people gurus? Are they the savviest people on personal finance? Probably not. They are radio and/or TV personalities, with an emphasis on personality. The reason they have large broadcast audiences is based on personality. I bring this up because if you look to them for all of your financial wisdom there will be a lot that you do not learn, or times that you will be confused because the contrast between them is quite large on many topics.
What I wish Clark would have done is recommend other things for you to read so that you can make yourself a guru, but I suppose if that happened he might lose some of his listeners.
Now for the review of each chapter:
CREDIT: I skipped this chapter as my own credit has always been good, even though I pay no attention to it. I use debt sparingly and always pay on time. Simple enough.
HOMES AND REAL ESTATE: This chapter has one story about renters too afraid to buy a home, someone who buys foreclosures, a gal who rents out her condo, and a person who owns a rental property.Read more ›
