  • “Live like no one else, so later you can live like no one else.”

    My father gave me the paper version of this book sometime last year. It’s full of steps on how to get out of debt, save money for rainy days, not make stupid purchases, and truly live like the king and queens we are. With the new year upon us, I plan to use as many of these tactics as possible moving forward. Thank you Dave!

  • Do not recommend!

    By Tea_Reads
    Zero stars, did not like! His theory is over-simplified, and very little of the book is actual content. Most of it is pure filler to try to sell you on advice that is incomplete and full of holes!
  • Read it

    Great book. Had me hooked!
  • Too Many Commercials

    By ayb87
    I purchased from Apple Books and with the layout, it felt like I spent every few pages reading testimonials; like being inundated with ads/commercials during a TV show - it affected the flow. I would rate higher if the testimonials were grouped together in an appendix or removed completely (with a link to read them online).

  • The way people look at you after...

    By xMiK117
    When you DO the things listed in this book and make it a lifestyle: 1. The people around you will ask for your help. 2. Put people who think they “know better” to shame. 3. OWN things and no one can take them from you!
