Overview

The "the best book on money period" according to Grant of Millennial Money (as featured on CNBC Make It), who followed its advice and became a self-made millionaire entrepreneur in only five years

In an age of great economic uncertainty when everyone is concerned about money and how they spend what they have, this updated edition of the bestselling Your Money or Your Life is an essential read. Millennial Money's Grant explains: "The premise of it is that you exchange your time for money. And when you start thinking about how many hours of your life it took to save up the money to buy something, you really start thinking twice about your purchases."

In Your Money or Your Life, Vicki Robin shows readers how to gain control of their money and finally begin to make a life, rather than just make a living. With this book, you'll learn how to:

• Get out of debt and develop savings
• Save money through mindfulness and good habits, not strict budgeting
• Declutter your life and live well for less
• Invest your savings and begin creating wealth
• Save the planet while saving money
• And much more!

"The seminal guide to the new morality of personal money management." -Los Angeles Times

I read this book when it came out in the 1990's. It changed my perspective and changed the way I look at money. No, I am not financially independent but my life is definitely much richer and more authentic than it would have been had I not read this book. I bought the updated nook version as a refresher. It's just as helpful as the previous version with some updates. Given the economy and what got us into this mess, this book is a must read for everyone.

An excellent starting point to achieve better financial health.

This was one of the first of the "Financial Independence" books, promoting the idea of living below your means and saving towards the time when you no longer need to work. Awesome ideas, a classic.
