Fluffy, and not much on subject besides.

I got about two thirds of the way through this seemingly random compendium of feel-goodisms and well-worn platitudes before I gave up and moved on. The presentation consists of a rambling collection of fluffy anecdotes which every so often have something to do with money.

If you would find it novel and worthwhile to pay money to hear, that sometimes if you stop thinking about a problem the answer will come to you, or that you should avoid "the blame game" or that you shouldn't put all your eggs in one basket, or that you should seek out a mentor, or you otherwise seek a thrown-together laundry pile of simplistic bromides available anywhere for decades, many of which have little or nothing to do with managing money, then this is the book for you.

If you are in money-trouble and want laser-sharp advice on how to get through a rough patch or dig yourself out of a hole, I'd recommend the TOTAL MONEY MAKEOVER by Dave Ramsey. If you want to improve your overall attitude about money and put yourself on a genuine course toward accumulating real wealth, I'd recommend THE MILLIONAIRE NEXT DOOR, by Stanley and Dannko. If you want a general self-help self-improvement book I'd recommend a host of others, from Dale Carnegie to Zig Zigler, rather than this contrived ball o fluff. In any case, if you're looking for a good and worthwhile listen, I recommend you look elsewhere.

Not really about money

This book was super close to main don't sweat book. Seemed too general and not niche enough for me. Good principles just not what I thought
