This book is more self-indulgent autobiography than it is financial advice. It's just a story of a guy with a $125k salary who was able to save $45,000 a year (minus taxes). Since most of his audience will not have $125k salaries, it is doubtful that they will take much away from this book. Their heads will be full of useless phrases like Fun Units and Mr. Budget.
What little advice you'll find is liberally "borrowed" from The Motley Fool discussion boards and from the classic title Your Money or Your Life. I don't think a ghost writer would have helped since there are not 20 pages worth of actual info in the book. Here are a couple of quotes to show you the general writing level:
"The problem that is the focal point of this book is that our money management practices have not changed to keep up with the changes that have taken place in the economy in which the money to be managed is being earned."
"Did you think then that you would have as much trouble saving as you do today when the time came at which you earned what you earn today."
This is the sort of advice offered:
"Each dollar saved is a dollar not spent, and each dollar spent is a dollar not saved."
"Money management is a game in which he who enjoys the most Fun Units wins."
