    "Repetitive, Redundant, Ridiculous"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am not sure if anyone would enjoy it or find it useful.


    Has How to Retire the Cheapskate Way turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I would be very interested in a book that offer clear, specific and well-thought-out information on how to stretch the one's retirement dollars.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was okay.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from How to Retire the Cheapskate Way?

    I would delete much of the verbiage. The author repeats the same information, over and over again, indicating that some point he is going to get to the meat of book; however, he never does.


    Any additional comments?

    It is as if the author has very little to say on the subject, but is being paid by the word, so he stretches every idea and concept out in the vaguest of terms. He sort of talks in circles, repeating each idea over and over again.

    "Encouraging Reinforcement for a Frugal Lifestyle"

    I appreciated that this is not one of those "you must have a million dollars to retire and here's how" books. It's practical and down to earth advice for living a more frugal lifestyle. Obviously, if you can learn to live on less, you can retire on less. There are many of us whose retirement plans fell apart and our hoped for retirement was supposed to be around the corner. What do we do now? Actually, there's a few ideas in here. It's applicable whether you are prepared or not prepared. I'm tired of the "We're all gonna die!!!" scenario if we didn't do everything perfect since we were 12. Some ideas are really creative and not for the faint of heart. I liked the idea (and plan to do the exercise) of writing down all the truly worthwhile things in my life. How is my life matching up to that? Do I need more money or a different focus? Have I really been chasing the wrong direction because I'm working too many hours? Could I actually be much happier and healthier and make less money? Much of it is just enforcing good habits, being better stewards of how ever much money we have. Nothing earth shattering, but thought provoking in places and worth listening to. Using even one of the ideas will save more than the book costs. :) (The narrator is not one of my favorites, but that's a personal preference.) JB
