About the Author
Jacob Lund Fisker retired at 33 and wrote Early Retirement Extreme to share his systems-theory approach to personal economic efficiency with others. His ideas have been featured in articles in Forbes, CNBC, USA Today, US News & World Report, The Guardian, PBS Next Avenue, The Atlantic, and many others.

I say 'ostensibly' because this book is really about how modern society works. We live in a capitalist world, which means there is benefit to having capital. If my instincts are correct, Jacob realized how heavily ownership is given advantage, did some math (placed very late in the book, but arguably the most important part), and figured out what's important when it comes to having freedom. And I mean that in the most concrete way; often people idealize freedom and treat it as something independent of your ability to choose, but Jacob Lund Fisker does not. The deeper you think about the math and the facts of society, the more you discover about this way of thinking about the world. And no one has thought as much or as deeply on the subject as the author of this book.
This is a book that could change the life of anyone who reads it. The advice is not simple to follow (or, rather, it's not comfortable, often), and the results occur on a scale of years, not hours or days like those other books promise. But this is the real deal, and to say this book is worth your time is like saying that it's worth opening the front door a little wider to fit the giant novelty check you're being handed.
The second is how to act within the new philosophy but mostly stops short of what.
