Great View of Life
I would have given it five stars if the real-estate section were based on reality. 'don't count on your house appreciating more than inflation percentage' turns out to have been dead wrong. But that aside, I'm following his advice right now. Quit your job, literally or metaphorically, become a mercenary. Pay cash. Don't retire. I've believed these axioms for years but Polland is the first to put it in a succintly unique way. Great stuff to be read and re-read. Also read his follow-up 'Live Rich'. It is less robust than Die Broke, but it arms you with tools to cope with 'low overhead' living. Fear reducing is Polland's specialty.

I have already done most of the stuff he reccommends.
Disagree with advice to plan to go on Medicaid, which is a federal welfare program, though.
Worth a read.
