Some good stuff, some not

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend this to a friend. It seems like it's written as advice to the author's teenage child. from a very cynical father. It's basically organized as "here's how you're going to get screwed; here's how I dealt with it."

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Maybe given some useful advice, versus "stay away from this, stay away from that"

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Wow, the narration was AWFUL!!! I mean, bless the little actor's heart, he put his heart and soul into acting out the book in the most dramatic fashion. Trouble is, it's a non-fiction book. His interpretation was way off. His voice sounded like Bea Aurthur from the Golden Girls or something. So, imagine, Bea Aurthur dramatically acting out a reading of the newspaper. You'll get the idea.

Very libertarian

I was very surprised to see such a clear reason for libertarianism. I’d leave a longer review touting how good it is but I’m picking my kids up from camp

could have been just me

I picked up a few good nuggets from this book but it was really hard to stay focus. I might read it again later to see if I can grasp it better

Credit well-spent

Well-developed subject matter. Interesting insights. Comprehensively covered key life areas. Smooth flow. Good narration. I like all of Ringer's books. A good one to go with this would be Million Dollar Habits (also Ringer).

Great book!

Love the advice and the presentation of it in the narration. There was a problem on chapter 6 or 7 where he repeats himself but that can be a technical issue.

Terrible narration

Great book horribly botched through terrible narration. Narrated like a drama story instead of a non-fiction book. Could not recommend.
