What if everything you ever wanted isn't what you actually want? Twenty-something, suit-clad, and upwardly mobile, Joshua Fields Millburn thought he had everything anyone could ever want.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to anyone frustrated with the seemingly endless "work to live" grind or in any way disenchanted with the so-called "American Dream." This story gently and genuinely leads the reader towards a new way of thinking.

What about Justin Malik’s performance did you like?

Interesting and unique but highly listenable.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The gradual shifts in awareness that eventually transformed their lives.

Popular blogger Anna Newell Jones of AndThenWeSaved.com delivers this self-help manifesto that reveals how a "spending fast" will help you get on the road to living debt free. In 2009, young photographer Anna Newell Jones was rapidly suffocating under the weight of too much debt. An inveterate spender, she was in way over her head, to the tune of almost $24,000. She knew her debt was only going to get worse if she didn't take action, but she didn't know where to look for help.

If you could sum up The Spender's Guide to Debt-Free Living in three words, what would they be?

Fun, relatable, and easily applicable "advice" on the benefits of living life debt-free.

What does Carly Robins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voice and style was perfect for this story....Very engaging.

What did you like best about Breakfast with Buddha? What did you like least?

my expectations for something enlightening

Any additional comments?

author is more interested in his own internal, un-evolved and uninteresting musings than actually learning, or sharing with us, anything from his passenger. I'm about half way through and not sure I can finish.
