To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
There are many books on managing money but this one is unique. It is built on principles, therefore they do not change, which is why it has stood the test of time. The principles are simple to understand and it is obvious they will work. The reader will choose either to apply them or not, succeed or not.
This book is not about sophisticated modern details of finances.
It is instead, about universal principles that would apply no matter what era or economy one finds oneself in.
The parables are memorable, and illustrate eternal truths. Within two days of getting this book I had completely re-arranged my financial life, am making amazing progress on managing debts, savings and investments... not that the book has any especially sophisticated advice... but that is it's strength, really... its simplicity. You will discover on your own how to apply them to your particular situation.
It didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know (and you will likely have the same experience) but the WAY that it is told, somehow really grabbed me and got me to re-arrange my thinking... and energized me to get off my duff and make REAL changes.
Highly recommend giving this a read or listen on audible as it is one of my top 5 books of all time. Invaluable lessons, teaching, etc. if you are looking for self improvement or growth in countless areas. Give this. Serious chance and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Amazing how easy the principals are to understand. The study guide in this version help a little to provide perspective. Some of the questions the study guide had were lacking imagination or thought. Overall good book!
