Review: Your Money or Your Life

User Review  - Maco - Goodreads

I think this is a really great book, even if one doesn't go through all the steps, the context, background and suggested introspection suggested throughout the chapters is the greatest added value. That being said, the writing style is a bit repetitive. Read full review

Review: Your Money or Your Life: 9 Steps to Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence

User Review  - Kira - Goodreads

A great novel it is not but it's not meant to be. It speaks to the reader one-on-one and pushes him/her to take a new look at their life and thoughts of money and things. I haven't walked through the steps yet but I plan to in the near future. Read full review

About the author (1992)

Joe Dominguez was born on February 2, 1938. Considered a pioneer in the sustainability movement, he, together with partner Vicki Robin, co-authored the best-seller Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence. Dominguez was 31 years of age when he retired from a job as a technical stock analyst on Wall Street with a nest egg of about $70,000. He continued to live off of the investment income, about $6,000 a year, with a strong desire to tell others how to do the same. The proceeds of his book sales and other efforts to increase financial literacy have been donated to the New Road Map Foundation, an all-volunteer, non-profit foundation founded to promote the reduction of North American consumption. Dominguez died of cancer in Seattle on January 11, 1997.
