While the info contained within this book certainly is no secret, the story spoke to me in a way that nothing else had. Maybe it was the context, language, or the historical time tested theory, I'm not sure but whatever it was, it resonated.
I started reading this book a few years ago in a hotel room on Christmas eve.
Something about the stories, lessons, and history really spoke to me. I made a commitment and the following year saw me get out of the hamster wheel of debt that I'd been running in since I was 18.... And establish a respectable savings.
Some won't appreciate the stories, some may dismiss the lessons as "common sense" (despite the fact that they aren't applying them and are broke.)
Other stories, lessons, formats, may speak better to you.... That's fine.
But for me,
This book along with the millionaire mind are head and shoulders the two books that have made the biggest impact on me.
"A part of all I earn is mine to keep."
I also (now) habitually test my wants against my needs. My list of wants is never-ending, just like YOU, and it grows every day. But those things we need! - Aye, a very short list indeed. Small things have not increased my life's enjoyment and are quickly forgotten. Video here, $5 coffee there, blue shoes, toy for my boy once a paycheck just because... Small things have been my bane. No more.
I am a single mother. A one-income household and I rent. But, my life has already changed because of this book - and I continue to seek more positive inspiration toward my long term goals, especially for the sake of my one and only son. Not only to provide for him, but to teach him how to think and manage money.
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!!!
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.
If you can get over the occasional use of Old English and seek to learn how to build, maintain and grow your wealth you should definitely buy this book.
PS - I think I have found a book to gift my friends this Christmas!
