This book combines the principles found in many other books about financial intelligence, but tells it in a much more entertaining way. Definitely a must-read.

Read it through a recommendation

This book came up a lot while going through forums like r/personalfinance and r/financialfreedom. Gotta say, I wasn't too impressed. It's an old book, and its style is definitely dated. If this were written in the 21st century, it would face harsh criticism.

Out of the 178 chapters, about 20 could have been eliminated, and the remaining 158 could have been reduced to, at most, 90 chapters. There was a lot of fluff and drawn out text.

The underlying content is good. I just think it would be better to read/listen to a summary that gets to the point and save yourself some time.

Not my kind of thing

I'm not going to return this, but this really wasn't my kind of thing. The author read about 150 positive sentences to try to make you feel good about yourself. If I looked into this more before purchasing, I would have skipped it.

If you are into this kind of thing, go for it. But if you're looking for a book, this is not that.

Of course, there's a lot of plugs in here for the author's SEM business, but the information and resources provided are still quite good.

Fantastic performance. From start to finish, this book really draws you in. The main voice actor/producer has a soothing voice, and accurately differentiates characters through tone and inflection.

The writing style is very easy to understand. It doesn't bore you with gobbledygook or fluff words. Everything written has importance.

This is how the story should be experienced.

Good, but not as good.

This book was definitely a prequel. Although it was definitely still good, I found this one more drawn out.

Situations were often too descriptive, giving too much importance to everything; making everything feel less important. The beginning was great, the middle was meh, and the end was great.

If you're looking to complete this series, you won't be disappointed with this book. But it likely wouldn't do well as a stand-alone.

Time to move on to book five!

Great

The story was great. The way Mark Deakins read this couldn't have been more perfect at keeping you engaged, putting the right emphasis on words, and differentiating characters with voices.

I picked up this book, wanting to know where the term "pay yourself first" came from. It turns out, I had misinterpreted it. I'm glad I now have the true understanding. Great read.

The principles were great. I love the simplicity and subtle repetitiveness of the writing style. You're easily able to follow along and remember what's being said.

The reason I took away one star was because near the end of the book I was getting a bit frustrated, asking "well, what DO you do?". However, he did sum it up nicely by saying, and I'm paraphrasing, "minimalism is different for everyone. You need to find what works for you".

Overall, it's definitely worth the read. It makes you think about your possessions, and give you a positive outlook on things you can change to make your life easier.

If you liked the movie, you'll like the book! It was really fun spotting the differences between the two. Onto the next book!
