Kurt takes and unconventional view on wealth building. He talks about avoiding stocks and looking to build real wealth by living beneath your means, building a business, P2P lending, social investing and other less publicized ways to become wealthy. I appreciate that he's going a 'contrarian' route as well as the fact that Fischer is looking to figure out how to live that's in line with minimizing consumption. Additionally, he's smart and offers some interesting graphs and analyses. I enjoyed the book, in spite of the fact that I don't agree with all of his premises. I recommend reading the book as it's thought-provoking and goes against the tide. I think in his analysis he should have opted for a broader stock market proxy like the S+P 500 instead of the DJIA. It's a quick read and gets you outside the conventional wisdom.
