From Publishers Weekly
Farrell's brief on the value in shifting from conspicuous consumption to responsible spending is well-intentioned, but rarely does his advice move beyond commonsense considerations into more substantive lifestyle shifts. The pedestrian material also undermines Farrell's reading—which, given the author's textured voice, a personable vocal manner, and lilting rhythm, should have been excellent. Coupled with the text, however, Farrell's performance is listless and lacks energy, charisma, and powerful prose necessary to interest and inspire the listener.
