nonfiction/finance
skimmed through (lots of anecdotal stories from other retirees and info I already know). this has been updated to include all of the language from Mr. Money Mustache and all those other trendy millennial retirees.
I was hoping for a more fiscally conservative take on the FIRE movement since I think financial independence in your 70s-100s (senior years) may cost significantly more than it does in your 20s-6os, but Vicki Robin, who is now in her 70s, doesn't really go into the cost of elder care at all, aside from mentioning her plan to join a multigenerational community and 'age in place.' She does mention increasing her 'cache' of savings when possible, to allow for unforeseen future expenses.

If you need convincing that you can retire earlier if you decrease your spending and increase your saving, then this is for you. The line graphs were the best part in showing how mathematically feasible it can be. ( )

Your Money or Your Life is very much a financial independence classic. This focuses more your life than your money – showing the strong thread that money has on your time, your relationships and your options in life. One area that stands out to me is the idea of understanding the value of your time as it relates to money. When you buy lunch out, or even grab a latte, how many minutes/hours of your time are you paying for that experience – and is it worth it? Knowing that you're spending on what brings you the most happiness for the buck is how you drive your expenses down while driving your happiness-per-dollar up. ( )

If you want your hand held very tightly and things explained slowly and methodically to you, this is the book for you. Or perhaps you enjoy the mental masturbation of someone telling you how bad it is to buy stuff, subtly congratulating you for not doing so. You also might enjoy it if you like metaphors that are wildly inaccurate, like this one that tries to make you understand money through something more 'tangible':

"Our life energy is more real in our actual experience than money. You could even say money equals our life energy. So, while money has no intrinsic reality, our life energy does--at least to us. It's tangible, and it's finite."

Maybe I'm stupid, but how is 'life energy' more tangible than money? You can literally touch money; can you do that with life energy?

Obviously, I didn't enjoy the book's tone or pacing, but even the ideas contained within it are dubious. One of the first things that the book tells you to do is to make an inventory of every little thing in your house, only leaving out things that might be worth less than $1. Talk about a high investment of time for questionable value. Irrespective of this example, though, the book has a very low signal-to-noise ratio; you have to read through 5-10 pages of the same idea regurgitated 100 different ways before another one comes along.

I'd recommend Early Retirement Extreme instead, which has a much higher proclivity to present novel ideas. The reason I gave this book more than 1 star is because I think that for someone who isn't as sold on the concept of financial independence, it could be useful to have information be relayed at a more leisurely pace.

This book didn't fully sink in until I read it the second time a few years later. At that point, I was ready to take the concepts fully to heart, and it changed the course of my life. If you don't get through it the first time, put it down for a couple years and try again. ( )

This is a fantastic book. It illustrates what is important in life. ( )
