This book is something between a practical manual and a philosophical text, but not quite achieving the height of the greatest examples in either category. To nit pick.. some topics are explored more or less than I would have liked, and despite the detailed outline, something about the organization of the book bothered me.
Having walked away with some good ideas, I'm glad I read this, but I could see the style and the intellectualism annoying some readers. I would recommend you read a few passages and determine if you like the writing style, but I would *not* reject this simply because it seems too outlandish, or like something you could never do. There is no fixed prescription here, and this book will soften the jelly -- in the best possible way.
The only other book that has shaped my life more is Harry Browne's "How I found Freedom in an Unfree World" which is a masterpiece as well.
I see at least one review here that says you could skip buying this book and save the $12, thereby following the authors principle of frugality. I wonder if this reviewer actually read the book because the author does not frown upon paying for quality or investing in yourself, in fact that is exactly what he preaches to do.
This book truly is useful and worth the read ONLY if you plan to think about and analyze the ideas and information he presents. If you further formulate this into a plan and ACTION, more the better. Don't plan on getting a step by step approach to financial freedom nor any real concrete steps to take. This takes more of a semi-mathematical, philosophical, and psychological approach to your life and finances. He does a great job explaining his reasoning from a Renaissance perspective and the value of this perspective. If you strive to know a fair amount about various subjects rather than having a hyper-specialization then this is the book for you!
