This is Life 101 - Required re4ading for EVERYONE with a pulse.,
February 14, 2007
What a great book. You will love the authors connection through his
creative and easy to understand language. You get the feel throughout that
the author doesnt try to impress you but rather provide honest advice based
on both experience and research. No doubt, hands down the best and most
enjoyable financial book available. The value of this book over a lifetime
is immeasurable. Thank you.

Public schools should pass these out before Math texts!, April 23,
I picked this book up at the library and did take my time over it
(renewed once) but that is after reading the first few main chapters. Ane
reading other stuff inbetween. It IS easy to become more financially set. To
save money, live with a reasonably priced car and house (below your "means")
and bank the differences. Short term deferment results in long term gain,
don't keep up with the Joneses. Timeless quotes are given from experts
through history. Humor makes this a good read.

Good Debt, Bad Debt, September 29, 2005
I really enjoyed this book. It has a lot of eye opening information in it
and walks you through step by step. This book really makes you stop and
think about all aspects of your life and where you've been and where you're
going and where you want to be. We all have to start somewhere and sooner is
most definitely better but we can all still do it.

Overlong and Overwritten. The message is good., September 7, 2005
While I strongly agree with the message of this book, I cannot recommend
it. The theme of the book is that you need to save part of your income and
invest it to create wealth for your old age. This agrees with the research
in the book "The Millionaire Next Door," cited by Mr. Hanson. That book,
through personal interviews, shows that most self-made multimillionaires
lived on part of their income and invested the rest for high return.

a great financial AND "spiritual" guide - GET IT!, February 28, 2005
first of all, EVERYONE can use this advice - I think the debt load in
America averages about $8,000 for each and every adult in this country!
Hanson's book is awesome: it injects a little (much-needed) humor into one
of the most depressing and stress-inducing problems in the world: DEBT! The
"math" part of eliminating bad debt is easy, but getting a grip on the
difference b/n good debt and bad debt - and then feeling strong and
confident enough to actually do something about it - are areas where most of
us fall short. Jon Hanson will definitely give you a kick in the butt, and
will make you smile AND think! He's taken the best lessons from Rich Dad,
Automatic Millionaire, and a few other best-of-breed books and gone one step
further: his book is actually FUN! Definitely get it, and start climbing out
of bad debt today - don't wait!

THIS IS LIFE CHANGING MATERIAL, February 23, 2005
Twenty years ago I had the opportunity to hear Jon Hanson speak. His 20
minute presentation helped set a financial course for the comfortable
lifestyle I enjoy today. I am thrilled that Jon Hansons philosophies are
finally in print. By following the principals in his book you will be well
on your way to a life of financial independence.

Great book, must read for anyone... well Anyone at all., January 22,
First of all I don't own this book. I just skimmed through it today at a
brick and mortar store. I was very pleased to see some one had written down
many of life's lessons that I've been learning the hard way. I make $35k a
year and feel like a slave. And that I am, a slave to my past spending
habits. Fortunately I am only 29.

Best Personal "How To" Book I've Ever Read!, January 3, 2005
Bought Jon's book on Friday and read it this weekend, cover to cover.
What a gift he has! I absolutely loved it. I only wish this book had come
out years ago. There are so many concepts that I am going to put into
practice to better my financial position.
