If you know the basics about personal finance, then this book is not for you. I can't say I learnt anything from this book. It never goes into detail about anything. The chapter I was most looking forward to in this book, was the one about investing in incoming producing assets. However this was very disappointing as all it stated was "invest in assets that create income". Stated she made lots of money investing in bonds when the interests rates were good, but advises against them now, however no alternatives were given. If you're new the financial independence world then this book maybe of use to you, otherwise I'd avoid it.
I found this to be a very engaging read. The crux of it is that we should all be equating our income to units of time (of our life - hence the title). By doing this, you work out the price of something in hours/weeks or whatever, rather than £££s. So an item valued £100, is worth a lot more to someone who earns £50 a week than it is for someone who earns £1000 A week. This, in theory, should help us make better decision regarding how we spend our hard earned cash. Changing your mindset in this way could help stop you spending mindlessly on things that aren't really essential or even really wanted. Good advice! The book is probably longer than it needs to be. I'll probably read it a second time to recap some of the useful tips/advice. I recommend that everyone starts to think in this way when it comes to their finances!
Extremely basic personal financial advice. Information is very repetitive and this book could easily be 30% shorter. Step is very shallow with its depth that it feels like the author is trying to sell me something but doesn't want to get the vital information away until you pay. In my opinion step 9 isn't an actual step, as is doesn't give any specific advise just a list of possible ways to invest your money.
A must read for everyone that has problems with their economy or just want to spend less and save more up for the future. It will change your way of thinking about how you spend your money! This is the best book about personal finnance i have been reading “honestly” I can’t recommend this book enough. •Get it •Read it •And you will be thinking different about money!
What does the money that comes in - and out - of your life really mean to you? And what about money that is spent on work-related expenses like clothes and lunches? Does it really pay to work certain jobs? Which lines of your budget brings you joy and which bring you misery? Be prepared to question everything after reading this book, and that's a recommendation!
The cover of the book that I received is indeed "Your Money or Your Life", but bizarrely the contents of the book are actually "The Neverending Story", a children's book translated from German. Have given it 5 stars anyway as I found this mistake hilarious and am actually enjoying the book.
This book really helped change my perspective on money and how I spend my time/focus in life. This isn't a book about investing or getting a lot of money quickly so much as it is about our relationship with money and how our unconscious financial decisions impact our life satisfaction. Almost everyone can find something useful in this book.
Excellent and relevant book. Would recommend to anyone who would like to get their finances in order with the aim of looking to becoming financially independant and at the same time improving their life goals.
