Publisher's Summary

Rachel Cruze shines a spotlight on the most damaging money habit we have: comparing ourselves to others. Then she unpacks seven essential money habits for living the life we really want - a life in line with our values, where we can afford the things we want to buy without being buried under debt, stress, and worry. The Joneses are broke. Life looks good, but hidden beneath that glossy exterior are credit card bills, student loans, car payments, and an out-of-control mortgage. Their money situation is a mess, and they're trying to live a life they simply can't afford. So why exactly do we try so hard to keep up with the Joneses? Are we really living the lives we want, or are we chasing someone else's dream, just trying to keep up appearances on social media, at church, and in our community? Why are we letting other people set the pace for our own family's finances?
In Love Your Life, Not Theirs, Rachel shows you how to buy and do the things that are important to you - the right way. That starts by choosing to quit the comparisons, reframing the way you think about money, and developing new habits like avoiding debt, living on a plan, watching your spending, saving for the future, having healthy conversations about money, and giving. These habits work, and Rachel is living proof. Now, she wants to empower you to live the life you've always dreamed of without creating the debt, stress, and worry that are all too often part of the deal. Social media isn't real life, and trying to keep up with the Joneses will never get you anywhere. It's time to live - and love - your life, not theirs.

Somewhat disappointed

Much of the book was a regurgitation of Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover. Some of the content is really good but seems directed to a young person or couple. It's a good book if you haven't heard this stuff before but not a lot new. I liked Smart Kids, Smart Money and Total Money Makeover more.

Copy cat book read in a patronizing tone

I was really excited to get this book, but about halfway through I got really annoyed with it. It is pretty much a carbon copy of Rachel's dad's book, Total Money Makeover. I guess if you haven't read Dave Ramsey's works, it has good information. However, I could not stand the way this book was read. It felt like I was being patronized and she makes a huge emphasis on every other word. Very annoying. If you're going to buy this book, buy it in print. I don't think I can finish listening to it.

It's good, but nothing new.

This was a great book, but nothing new. I've ready her other books and Dave Ramsey's book and this was just the same content, but a different cover. :) still a great read!
