The 7 Money Mantras are:
1. If it's on your ass, it's not an asset!
2. Is this a need or is it a want?
3. Sweat the small stuff.
4. Cash is better than credit.
5. Keep it simple.
6. Priorities lead to prosperity.
7. Enough is enough.

"Singletary's emphasis on simplicity and common sense make this an excellent primer for the novice financial planner." (Publishers Weekly)
If you're completely new to money management, and have never read a Time magazine or USA Today article on the subject, you'll learn something. Otherwise, only buy this audiobook if you want a light-hearted surface-level review of common-sense practices. For example, don't lease cars. Pay off high-interest credit card bills first. Don't be ashamed of clipping coupons. Don't lend money to people who won't pay it back.
It's rather impressive how the author milks nearly 5 hours out of repeating the same things over and over.
