His latest book is a collection of short stories -- you can think of it as Cathy's version of the Book of Proverbs -- is focused around the title's question. When so many of the ultra-rich have broken lives, is the pursuit of wealth ultimately worth it? As someone who has achieved real wealth without sacrificing his faith or his family, Cathy seems as qualified as anyone to provide some answers. In the book's introduction, Dave Ramsey calls this "the most important thing he's ever written."
I'm not so sure I agree. While I absolutely affirm Cathy's conclusions, and his advice is both practically and theologically sound, I don't think this is his best or most important work. While it's a shorter and easier read than some of his other books, there isn't a whole lot of new information in this book for those familiar with some of his others. There is a lot of overlap here with, for instance, Eat Mor Chikin: Inspire More People, and I thought the earlier book told Cathy's story better.
That said, if you're in the mood for a quick book of practical financial wisdom, this one will fit the bill. And for those wondering what Cathy's answer to the big question is, here is a summary:
Wealth is worth it if:
1. You earn it honestly
2. You spend wisely
3. You save reasonably

Being Wealthy or Poor is a state of your mind, heart, and spirit.
Mr. Truett Cathy was WEALTHY first. Then he worked hard and became Rich. Now he is both Wealthy and Rich.
This is the 4th book I read written by Truett Cathy. He is consistent in his values, love of people, and to serve.
The more authentically you serve, the more wealthy and Rich you will become.
Truett Cathy is proof that it work.

My favorite quote from the Buffet interview:
"Wealth is having enough. That means to some people, no matter how much they have, they can't really be wealthy because they want more than they've got"
