"A compelling - and highly entertaining - look at improving both the quality of our lives and the health of our planet by consuming wisely and laughing out loud." (Carl Pope, Executive Director, Sierra Club)
First few Chapters had more depth. Eliminating the "Money Step", learning to get by with less, the addiction of money, are all good topics and make this audio book worth the credit. The rest was less detailed steps and more personal talking, sometimes to the point of stopping to listen. I didn't care to hear for extended periods of time about his house mortage, which could have been more detailed how to, instead of filler. The bad language and continued sexual inuendos have no place in a self help book, and shows yeg is still in the 'good ole boys mentality of the 80s' and needs to look in the mirror. Time to present info in a family mannor as you would want people to speak at your own dinner table. The reveal of his own finances at the end made up for the loss of credibility of his flaws. If you are into self dev as I am, this is one in a series and if you can learn to curb your spending addictions just a bit, its more than covers the downsides of this document.
the author is often vulgar and obsessed with sexual references and innuendo. he also blasphemes several times. some of the issues are useful, but for a locavore, done is not realistic.
Hey Christians need to be conservative with their money just as much if not more than anyone else. Well stick with Dave Ramsey because this guy is a Potty Mouth. I didn't get but probably 5 mins into the book and had to shut Yeager down. I couldnt listen to his trashy mouth.
I pray God saves this man.
I have been a follower of Dave Ramsey and other personal finance authors for quite a while and this book is a winner. Even if you don't take any of the advice that is dolled out and I am sure you will take at least some, it is still a very entertaining ride to listen to the comic cheapskate stylings of Jeff Yeager. As I write this I discovered today that he has another book out today and I can't wait until it hits Audible. Funniest book that I have read/listened to in quite a while.
