As the host of Fox News Channel's Your World with Neil Cavuto and Cavuto on Business, Neil Cavuto reports on today's most influential business leaders and newsmakers. His great talent is to get beneath the issues, connecting people to the events that define them and changing the way that Americans think about their money. Ending each show with a provocative, insightful commentary, Cavuto stirs people to see the world in a new light, calling on them to think beyond the stories at hand and challenging people to reevaluate the world that they live in.

In Your Money or Your Life, Cavuto compiles the best of these commentaries in one volume, creating a collection that is at once witty, thought-provoking, and inspiring. Covering a variety of topics—from remembering life before 9/11, to providing tips for empty nesters—Cavuto presents a wry yet evocative look at our world, one that speaks to the heart of the American condition. Spanning one of the most tumultuous decades in memory—from the wild and chaotic Clinton years through the sobering challenges of the War on Terror—Cavuto's words offer a window into our America at its best and its worst.

This book is a series of writings of Mr. Cavuto's going back to the 90's. It seems at least as concerned about politics and terrorism as economics. Lots of Rah-Rah patriotism and attack Iraq stuff, bashing Democrats and whitewashing Bush, and defense of the rich over the interests of the majority, etc. I thought the book was going to be about personal finance and personal relationship to it, but it's really just Fox News red meat.
I don't know how he did it, but he picked selections that showed him being wrong over and over again. Here he is defending the idea of WMDs in Iraq, complaining interest rates were headed way up before the housing crisis, etc.
It's not even that he's consistantly wrong. He contradicts himself over and over again. I borrowed the book so I'm not out any money for it so I'm not too bothered. It's a very odd book.
