A few years after I returned, I remembered his words when we found out he had passed and I bought the book. We had two kids, paycheck to paycheck, and no savings. I read the book and it hit home; hard. Slowly, week-by-week, we started to build savings. Now, we have a good retirement, well off and secure. This book started it off.
Easy to read and understand, timeless message. This book should be required reading for all school kids. It doesn't espouse greed like Think and Grow Rich. It simply teaches that you already have the ability to grow your prosperity from what you already have.
READ THIS BOOK and change your life forever.
It's both taller and wider than my current beat up version but the font they used is soooo small that I couldn't bring myself to make a detailed comparison- unlike the cover and back cover which are huge in comparison. They jammed 160 pages into 88 POORLY!!! I've never sent a book back before, but this one must go back!!!
So get the book, but not this version!!!
It's a short read and the entire thing is basically written in old-school proper english where at some times it feels like you're reading backwards – but it is worth it. You may have to re-read a couple sentences to comprehend the info or maybe even re-read the whole book but I urge you to do so.
It does not matter your situation in life, you CAN live within your means, save money AND pay off debt. Nothing worth having is easy so read the book, make a plan and change your financial future.
Included in this review is a photo of the edition of the book I am writing about.
Because I was a Christian I believed that I should tithe 10% of my income. I was tithing on my net income, not my gross. In my heart I knew that I should be tithing on my gross iincome. After reading this book, I decided that I should tithe on my gross, but in addition I should tithe (10%) to myself as well. That retirement is what got me through the crash in 2008 and has allowed me to purchase a small retirement property.

1. Saving money and
2. Investing that money intelligently to make more money.
Note that this book doesn't contain any information on how to invest if that is what you are are looking for, it instead focuses on the habits one must cultivate in order to have more control over your finances. The book conveys this via short stories which are packed full of wisdom and are not boring to read through.
Must Read for anyone who just started a job and is clueless about how to handle his finances
150 odd pages, took me about 5 hours to finish it.Go for it, its really a good book unlike all those other books on the same subject that promise to provide a lot but is full of pseudoscience & BS.
The old style English can be slightly off putting but as a KJV reader it was no problem.
It is otherwise easy to read, laid out in short stories and highlights at end to drive home points.
God help me, I will be teaching my children this book. Highly recommended for hard workers like me but with lean purses.
Author shared 3 main principle.
