3-stars for length (it is only 6 bucks after all), but 5-stars for the concept, the writing and the techniques. I've taken a couple of the suggestions and started investing in TIPS and gold. I'm not ready to get laid off to get unemployment (pretty funny section though), but I'm looking in to starting a 5013c to get a grant to do what I want. Brilliant. It's our money, why shouldn't we be taking advantage of it?!

Other than the chapter on gold, I found it to be of no use to me. I felt that the part about trying to get unemployment by otherwise normal ways did not impress me.It's not that I disagree with everything he says in his book,but I could not put into practical use all of his suggestions. As an average joe I was looking for ways to stay financialy secure in the coming months and years. Others may find the book interesting or helpful, but I cannot reccomend this book.

Unless you live a sheltered existence, this book will not enlighten you to anything useful that you did not know. The advice on your home mortgage is useless, it basically says it may or may not be a good idea to get or keep a mortgage. The one piece of information that could possibly be of value is the idea to form your own non-profit and apply for a government grant. Otherwise, he provides a pretty good overview of how and why our government has failed us and the resulting downturn that is about to be upon us.

This book had some interesting suggestions in it. Very practical and down to earth and not the absurd which I was half-expecting. Before I go on, I have to say this book is worth reading and I liked most of it. Unfortunately, for all the great knowledge on personal finance in here, I am writing this review mostly because of the first 15-20 pages (15-20% of the book). It was infuriating and dead-wrong and very simplistic. For all the things JSB Morse got right on personal finances, he was wrong on with the economy and the role of government within it. I just can't in good conscience let all these errors slide without providing counter-arguments.

To start off, in JSB Morse's history of the role of government in the economy, he takes the position of almost complete liaise-faire and says that everything the government gets involved in turns to disaster. He says the government should be completely hands-off in the economy. It is a common argument and I personally agree with some of its points (heavy spending is destructive and do not trust politicians any further than you can throw them)... but the logic of it is extremely misleading. Government involvement in the economy has failed because politicians, due to the very structure of our government, are corrupt. Campaigns are so expensive that almost all politicians must accept political contributions and once elected they bow down to whoever provided them money and ignore the electorate. The reason these government programs are a waste of money and not very effective is not that it can't be done... but that our corrupt politicians (mostly democrat) apparently spend every waking moment deciding how to make government programs bleed as much tax-payer money as possible into the pockets of campaign contributors.

I did enjoy reading this book and I would have given 5 stars, but I felt like he could have done a little explaining on a few items. A pretty good book overall.
