5.0 out of 5 stars 48 and Counting, September 26, 2012

Jonathan Clements wrote great investment books. He taught us to save our money and invest in low cost index funds. Now he has taken on a much harder subject: life. After you save all that money so you don't have to work anymore, what do you do? How do you share your life with another person? If you exercise one hour a day, what do you do during your other sixteen waking hours? This is his first book on the subject, but I am already looking forward to the next five. Jonathan is the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book, July 13, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Of all the people we interact with in the world, there are maybe six or seven that really change our life. Our parents make sacrafices so we are able to earn our degrees. One or two teachers make a strong impression on us. Our spouse shares their life with us. Perhaps there is a religious person who helps us understand the concept of God. In my life Jonathan Clements is one of these people.
As a young man I spent money buying the latest hot mutual fund in an effort to beat the market. I paid huge fees, and last year's hot fund turned out to be this year's loser. Jonathan's book lays out the framework for investing using index funds with low fees to build a strong financial base.
Equally important is his advice not to buy too much house, too much car, and too much stuff. We can have a good life, but we cannot do everything. His comments on health, diet, happiness, and physical fitness also add perspective. I highly recommend this book. Buy copies for your children also.
