I particularly like the example of a dentist and his assistant who had very disparate incomes, but showed how the assistant actually was living better than her boss. That really made me think about the times in my life that I had a big income but wasn't living very well. I was making many of the same mistakes that the dentist was. Where was this great little book then? Would I have paid any attention to it then?
The focus is not on doing a budget once and disparing when it doesn't work. A budget is a work in progress and provides a fresh look every month with a fresh look at expectations.
I am grateful for this realistic way at looking at handling money. It is not a complete book of personal finance, saving and investing. It is just a look at how to handle what one has when that isn't all that much.
One of the major points in this book is avoiding expenses, even if you have a high income. The dentist vs. the dentist's clerk story really nailed the point down. If you want to find out why a dentist making six figure salary can be poorer than the dentist's clerk making meager salary, read this book.
This book talks about debts and emergency funds a lot. It really nails down the importance of being debt free, and establishing an emergency fund.
This book will also stress the importance of needs such as food, shelter, clothing, and family.
As an 18 year old who used to spend all my income on CD's and iPods, this book really enlightened me. I'm now saving up for the future, and have 550$ in my emergency fund. I'm also managing my expenses vs income, and working a lot harder than usual. This book was a real eye-opener for someone who's lived 18 years of his life without having to make any financial decisions.
