Big load of vague hot air,
This review is from: Killing Sacred Cows: Overcoming the Financial Myths That Are Destroying Your Prosperity (Hardcover)
I don't usually review books on Amazon, but this one irritated me enough to make the effort.
This book is a new age self-help motivational screed in the guise of financial planning advice. There are a few interesting points made, a lot of questionable ones, and some potentially harmful suggestions.
I found myself skipping whole paragraphs of the author repeating himself and his vague platitudes for the umpteenth time. I felt like I was holding my breath, waiting for him to get to the meat of the financial advice... all the way to the end.
Guess what I found at the end? Several sales pitches for his and his friends seminars, websites and books.
As another reviewer said, the 'meat' of this book would only fill a single chapter. The rest is fluff.
Don't follow the (possibly fradulent) positive-reviewing sheep, and don't waste your money on this book - if you really want to take a look, get it from the library (like I did).
