Publisher's Summary

From two leaders of the FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) movement, a bold, contrarian guide to retiring at any age, with a reproducible formula to financial independence.

A bull***t-free guide to growing your wealth, retiring early, and living life on your own terms.

Kristy Shen retired with a million dollars at the age of 31, and she did it without hitting a home run on the stock market, starting the next Snapchat in her garage, or investing in hot real estate. Learn how to cut down on spending without decreasing your quality of life, build a million-dollar portfolio, fortify your investments to survive bear markets and black-swan events, and use the 4 percent rule and the Yield Shield - so you can quit the rat race forever. Not everyone can become an entrepreneur or a real estate baron; the rest of us need Shen's mathematically proven approach to retire decades before 65.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

US and Canada focussed

70% of this book is relevant only to the US and Canada. Useless for UK.

How to get rich: avoid tax 😒

While there are some intriguing discussions in this about growing up incredibly poor and learning to prioritize one’s spending and make good choices of employment/investment, it lost me at the chapter on how to (legally) avoid paying any tax. While the author clearly grew up as part of an awful regime, she herself describes how she was angry with “rich people” who paid a smaller percentage to society than poor people, but then describes how she learned to be one of them.

Somewhere earlier in the book there’s discussion of how one only needs a certain amount of income to really be comfortable (after which it’s just an endless quest for more endorphins). I’m wondering how after that point it is ok to intentionally take away from the society you would presumably like to build up. Giving something back in charity after not paying a fair share in tax is still unjust.

There surely is some middle ground between ‘get rich quick’ and ‘screw schools, hospitals, and social welfare’ and communist China?

I liked the author and narrator of this book, especially after her shrewd attempts to help get herself and her family out of poverty. But the instructions on how to avoid tax (which don’t apply outside the U.S. or Canada anyway) were really disappointing.

One of the best FI books I have read

Great! Informative and the author is easy to follow. She delivers the information in an entertaining way. I don’t think the amount of swearing in the book was entirely necessary. Lucky I was listening while my young son was at school as there was no warning!

Great reproducible advise

I found this book a revelations, great advise on how to maximise your savings. The only down side is that it’s based on the American system. A lot of the methods are not applicable in the uk. Nevertheless, a book of food for thoughts. Makes you want to research for similar methods in your own country.

USA based tax advice

This book will help with taxation for all those who live in the USA, in the UK a lot of this books content would not apply.

interesting, accessible and nice to listen to.

nice to hear a woman's voice once in a while. I find it easier to listen to (don't know why). a lot of US and Canadadian-talk, like taxes, 401K's and such, but the largest part of the story is accessible for people in onther continents like me. really refreshing to hear other ways to financial independence, one i think I can use :)

Excellent practical info easily understood

A friend who’s already got this stuff sussed recommended this book as a follow on to j Collins simple path to wealth.
I was not disappointed, this was interesting and helpful in that the author gives practical info of her set up, her choices and consequences of choices. Not a how to book but more of a how to think about this stuff and decide your own plan.
Would definitely recommend to others

Save (properly!) and be wealthy

Simple to follow and sage advice I only wish I'd known earlier. A little North America specific in places for a UK reader. but nothing that can't be researched a little further.

An inspirational read

A little bit too America / Canada centric but that's such this fantastic young lady's personal story. On the the whole, a very inspiring story which I intend to take advice from.

A sure fire way to undo any money mindset work

I was really excited to read this book as it had been mentioned in many FIRE pages.
If you have done any work on your money mindset, please steer away from this book as she talks a lot about scarcity, how the world is not fair etc.
As someone that grew up poor and has done a lot of work in healing my relationship with money this book was one that fed into all that I had learnt growing up which didn't serve me at all.
She speaks about the fact that she has read the books on energetics of money etc but it didn't work. Confirmation bias prehaps.
I didn't finish this book, I found that it was a never ending story on negative money mindset.

Her life story

Disappointed with this book. It’s a book about her life story. This would be good for someone with very limited financial intelligence.

Excellent and easy to understand

Really enjoyed this book - so easy to listen to her relaxed style and found her explanation of things so understandable for someone who hasn't had any experience in the stock market and bonds. Will be listening to a few times more!!

Some good tips and thinking

The book is a great story on her life. It also holds some good tips even if you do not live in Canada or USA. What I liked about the book is how it made me think, review and challenge the current status quo or assumed ‘path of life’.

The chapter on how to manage when you have kids should be less opinionated though. It assumes world educators to the best option for all kids and the chapter focussed more on debusting the assumed cost to raise a child rather than providing more of the previous chapters tips and food for thought.

Overall a good book and one that makes us challenge our status quo.

It will be interesting to know how the author would write this book in the current covid world since a large part of their life is based on travel to reduce living expenses...
