Publisher's Summary

Jeff Yeager, the man dubbed The Ultimate Cheapskate by Matt Lauer on Today, offers a completely fresh take on personal finance, teaching us how to enjoy life more by spending less. He will show you how to buy less stuff, retire young, and live financially free, while you make a positive difference in people's lives and save the planet along the way. The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True Riches lays out the practices and principles that have made cheap the new cool.

  • Live within your means at 30 and stay there. The Ultimate Cheapskate was living well on what he earned at 30, so when he made more money, he saved every penny. Now he is "selfishly" employed, doing work he loves and helping others.
  • Do for yourself what you could have others do for you. Cheapskates are die-hard do-it-yourselfers. It's all about having the right tools, and The Ultimate Cheapskate will get you started.
  • Pinch the dollars and the pennies will pinch themselves. It's not the $3 cup of coffee; it's the big-ticket decisions that determine whether you'll be financially free. So buy a house, not a castle.

The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True Riches promises a quality of life you cannot buy, a sense of satisfaction you cannot fake, and an appreciation for others and for the planet that gives life value. Open your road map and prepare to discover the true joys of financial freedom.

    "Yes, with caveats"

    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.

    "Not for Christians"

    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.

    "Excellent Tale of a Person who Loves dryer lint"

    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.

    Thanks Jeff
