I've read six or seven early financial independence books recently and this one is the best. I like the author's down-to-earth style and overall presentation. A great listen!

Oh how I wish: (a) this book had existed back when I was just graduating from college, (b) somebody had given this book to me, and (c) I had listened to every word in it.<br/><br/>This is one of those "If I knew then what I know now" books. The lessons in here are priceless. Everybody should read this book and heed the advice in it.<br/><br/>The best part is you don't have to be all that interested in finance or 401(k)'s or any of that stuff. In fact, if you really dislike such things, this is probably the perfect book for you. JL Collins takes these complicated and boring financial matters and does two nice things for you: (1) throws out all the crap you don't need to know, and (2) explains what you do need to know in layman's terms that anybody can understand. So not only is the wisdom in this book chockfull of solid gold nuggets on a need-to-know basis, but the delivery is crystal clear and simple to follow in practice.<br/><br/>Speaking of the delivery, OMGoodness does JL Collins have a superb voice for the audiobook format. He reminds me of David McCullough. He has the kind of deep grandfatherly "gather 'round the campfire for a story" voice. It's fabulous.<br/><br/>In summary, this book is worth every penny. Along with a handful of other "quake books" that changed my life for the better, this one is getting added to that list (right alongside John C. Bogle's "The Little Book of Common Sense Investing"). I can't recommend this book enough. Get it for yourself. Listen to it. Make your kids listen to it. Your siblings. Your friends. Your parents. The lessons in it are too valuable not to share with everybody you know.

Where does The Simple Path to Wealth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
In the top 10, it's straight forward, no nonsense self-promotional rubbish. He cuts to the chase, really well.
What other book might you compare The Simple Path to Wealth to, and why?
Killing Sacred Cows, just to get you thinking differently.
Have you listened to any of JL Collins and Peter Adeney ’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The introduction, then the ones that followed. Consistently easy to digest the material.
I found JL Collins through www.mrmoneymustache.com. I love both of these bloggers. So it was only natural that I bought The Simple Path to wealth. Jim's life & financial advice just makes sense. I'll be advising my children to follow it and any friends & family I think could benefit.
Follow his advice and end up rich. It's simple!
