Get the first edition

The author seems to be overly bought into the fear of the past few years, as well as promoting the agenda of encouraging people not to have kids or eat meat. There ARE some solid concepts about Old Money in here, but I believe one would be better off to read his original work and less on what the author personally subscribes to.

The First Edition Is Better

I didn't care for all the Rona propaganda in the second version. The first edition is far superior.

Practical Principles for a More Fulfilling Life

Tully emphasizes quality of life over standard of living; which appears to be the stark difference between old money and nouveau riche. He provides practical advice on education, relationships, travel, wardrobe, furnishings, etc. This book serves as a general guide to those who are new to these concepts and a great refresher for those who are already familiar.

One critique is that the “Post-Covid” advice in this expanded edition is a bit “wokish”; perhaps, smug even. But, don’t let that deter you! It’s still a useful read.

Overall OK let’s stick to the narrative thanks that you know nothing about stairway make you look stupid

Listening about your food section was a joke you’re limited research shows and your lack of a cumin did you know that filtered water of a recent study concludes it does not remove Ponsett cancer agents also you went a little bit overboard on the cosmetic deal and you disenfranchise half of your audience by going on and on and on your financial information is good but you need to clip it a little bit but thanks that you have no idea about
