Jeff Yeager is not a brilliant audiobook reader... or is he? The premise of this very funny and practical book is that your quality of life increases as your spending decreases. Following one of his book's main edicts ("Do for yourself what you could have others do for you."), Yeager steps up to the microphone and learns a new skill. His reading is not particularly polished, but this turns out to be his greatest strength. A natural comedian with a warm and enthusiastic Midwestern voice, Yeager is not only the author of the book; he is its main character. Listeners immediately feel they are getting useful back-fence advice from a wise next-door neighbor, who could be channeling Groucho Marx. He establishes a direct connection with listeners, who will find themselves slaying their Enoughasauruses with smiles on their faces.

Jeff Yeager, the man dubbed The Ultimate Cheapskate by Matt Lauer on Today, offers a completely fresh take on personal finance, teaching us how to enjoy life more by spending less. He will show you how to buy less stuff, retire young, and live financially free, while you make a positive difference in people’s lives and save the planet along the way. The Ultimate Cheapskate’s Road Map to True Riches lays out the practices and principles that have made cheap the new cool.
Live within your means at thirty and stay there. The Ultimate Cheapskate was living well on what he earned at thirty, so when he made more money, he saved every penny. Now he is “selfishly” employed, doing work he loves and helping others.
Do for yourself what you could have others do for you. Cheapskates are die-hard do-it-yourselfers. It’s all about having the right tools, and The Ultimate Cheapskate will get you started.
Pinch the dollars and the pennies will pinch themselves. It’s not the $3 cup of coffee; it’s the big-ticket decisions that determine whether you’ll be financially free. So buy a house, not a castle.
The Ultimate Cheapskate’s Road Map to True Riches promises a quality of life you cannot buy, a sense of satisfaction you cannot fake, and an appreciation for others and for the planet that gives life value. Open your road map and prepare to discover the true joys of financial freedom.
