For many of us, the typical workday makes us feel like hamsters on the proverbial wheel. Plagued by crises and distractions, we work hard all day. But when we go home we’re not much closer to reaching our goals. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Vanderkam shows how successful people employ certain daily practices to make sure their work hours are invested, not squandered.

I love all of her books, but the audio reading of this one was difficult to listen to. There was a lot of audible swallowing noises that were unpleasant. I listened to the entire thing and liked the content. And her other audiobooks I've listened to don't have this issue either. The book is worth it, but be prepared for the audio.

What made the experience of listening to Hands Free Life the most enjoyable?

This was an easy listen- the voice was pleasing and the story moved quickly. Lots of gems in here.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't listen all in one sitting, but I did listen all within a week, which is rare for me. Usually I get bored halfway through a book, but I enjoyed this one all the way to the end!

Any additional comments?

The book moves quickly and tells a nice story with lots of shorter stories. It was quite validating in my daily life, encouraging readers/listeners to focus more on living life than keeping up with life. Very inspirational.

  • The Legacy Journey

  • A Radical View of Biblical Wealth and Generosity

Dave Ramsey shares Biblical wisdom on the legacy we build with our wealth. What does the Bible really say about money? About wealth? How much does God expect you to give to others? How does wealth affect your friendships, marriage, and children? How much is "enough"? There’s a lot of bad information in our culture today about wealth - and the wealthy. Worse, there’s a growing backlash in America against our most successful neighbors, but why?

It's a great next step after Total Money Makeover. I highly recommend it! It talks about what to do once you are out of debt and how to make sure your family is taken care of.
