What Bloggers Are Saying...

"This book was the first to inspire me to reach higher with my financial situation and really illustrated to me the power financial independence gives me. I don't plan on retiring early but knowing the possibilities that saving enough money for life provides really spoke to me and forced me to reevaluate my priorities."
"Teaches you how to use your money to buy the most valuable thing there is - freedom"
"I enjoy his take on early retirement since it makes it available to the middle-class and anyone starting out his career. I can easily relate to Jacob’s book since he puts up a very achievable goal. He retired on a tiny budget and follows traditional values to maximize his life. It is an excellent read for anyone, whether you make $20 an hour or $200, the principals shared are always relevant. If you are earning under $50,000 a year, it can be hard to save up a million dollars and you might get demotivated before the first decade but fortunately, we do not all need $1M to retire."
"No better way to look at living your life differently than to have an extreme perspective"
