The weakness of the book is that the authors show their own biases too much. The ultimate goal in their view is to move from the city to a small town, quit working for pay entirely, and do volunteer work instead. This is not everybody's cup of tea, and some of the penny-pinching suggestions in the book (having potlucks instead of dinner parties, spending your vacation in your own hard-earned home, buying food in bulk) may seem tacky and depressing. Don't be put off, though: you can still benefit from the financial plan they describe even if you don't share their preferences and goals.
"Your Money or Your Life" has given me the strength to know the path that eluded me for so long. Now I can focus on things that are meaningful, instead of just being another 9-5 drone. Now I realize the myths behind modern employment, and the modern stencil-cut pattern for living. Still every day I talk with brainwashed people who say "I love my work" then come home exhausted and unfufilled, deeper in debt, down a 6-pack or just simply collapse after dinner...ignoring their family and friends. You don't have to be one. Read this book with an open mind, and you will never be just a piece of the machine that a select few profit from again.
It took me 10 years to save up, make the time and do what I always wanted to do. After reading this book I did the same thing again, this time taking my wife with me and it only took me 2 years of work this time and I had savings and a life to come back to.
The great thing is this method doesnt ask you to give up or sacrafice anything you really want, love or need. But along the way you do get the gratitude of dumping off all the dross you dont want and never really did from your life.
(PS who gives a toss if the examples dont fit everyone, they are just examples and I think they were fun reading.)
