I received my book and like it a lot. However, much of it sounds like what I've read or watched on the blog, guides, and videos. Of course, those things are scattered and the book is organized. If you have the book, would you mind sharing a link you feels covers a chapter or section very well. This should help those who don't have the book, get an organized start. Thank you.

Book Review by Ben K.
The book was an easy read in two nights, much of the content was in story form, and the 4 rules are mentioned so many times you can quote them by the end of the book. The book doesn't focus on the software. It says several times you don't need the software, you could do this on paper or with a spreadsheet. The focus of the book is to get you thinking about your budget on YNAB terms. It also mentions to do what works for you. If the debt snowball motivates you then do it, if some other method of paying off debt works, then do that. I didn't care for a word choice here or there, but an easy fix when you own the book. With the exception of selected real life stories - which are inspiring and fit the topics they are placed in - here's the content close to the book's chapters you can find:

There you go, while you wait for the book and the real life stories, you can read up on most of the content.Reply
