For more than 25 years, Your Money or Your Life has been considered the go-to book for taking back your life by changing your relationship with money. Hundreds of thousands of people have followed this nine-step program, learning to live more deliberately and meaningfully with Vicki Robin’s guidance.

This fully revised and updated edition with a foreword by "the Frugal Guru" (The New Yorker) Mr. Money Mustache is the ultimate makeover of this best-selling classic, ensuring that its time-tested wisdom applies to people of all ages and covers modern topics like investing in index funds, managing revenue streams like side hustles and freelancing, tracking your finances online, and having difficult conversations about money.

Don't recommend at all

If we add a ghastly performance (I wanted to stop listening as soon as I started because of the voice tone and general pronunciation) to some empty content (doesn't give any really helpful tips, in my opinion) and to the fact that half of the book is just repeating the same concepts over and over and over, we get a "Don't recommend at all".
Sidenote: May help if you're a COMPLETE mess financially; otherwise, you will lose oh so many hours of your life...

frugality meets finance

Such a marvelous book. I would love to count Vicki Robin as a friend, she has so much wisdom and so many stories to share. I wish this was translated in French to raise awareness about frugality and FIRE as a mean to reach a sustainable society.

Absolument génial. Ça a changé ma relation à l'argent. Pourtant j'en ai lu des livres sur l'argent, mais celui ci a changé beaucoup de choses. Simple et pourtant...

Not A Book About Finances

I had a lot of problems with this book. If you're looking for something that will teach you about money look elsewhere. The author spends the whole book talking about people who used "this step" of her program or "that step" but it isn't very practical. She seems to think that working full time just leaves people lonely and bad parents or bad partners and the only way anyone is going to be happy is by buying land in the middle of nowhere and learning to farm and fix your own stuff when it breaks. The only way to reach financial independence is by not spending any of your money, giving it to charity, working for some kind of a charity and never going shopping or buying anything.
When I figured out that this book was less about how to get your money to work for you and more about how to figure out what is "enough" I tried to shift my thinking but the author insistence that people will never be happy unless they quit their high paying jobs as computer programmers to teach children to write code for a quarter of your previous salary was just down right annoying.
If you're actually interested in what her program entails and not listen to a bunch of stories about how a hotel maid in WA paid off thousands in debt by just being a reliable person who was fortunate enough to be available when her boss needed to promote someone, skip to the end. She tells you the steps in the last chapter. There is a few useful bits of info in this book, more particularly the chapter on investing but she never really goes in depth and just talks about these well known money folks like JL Collins and Mr. Money Mustache.
Overall, I'm pretty disappointed with this book. Not sure what all of the hype is about.

only useful to the utterly clueless

I was hoping to hear tips about how Vicki Robin made it through decades of market ups and downs after early retirement. Instead, I got a loooong, chiding lecture about my terrible materialism and how dumb I must be about my life and my money. The author addresses all criticism directly at the reader as though we're all white-picket-fencers with 2 enormous homes and an out-of-control shopping habit.

I'm a self-employed single person planning to retire in my mid-forties, so basic financial management is not new to me. I *would* like to hear about how she managed decades of changing markets without income, but this book was totally useless in that regard.

If you feel that your spending is out of control and this is your FIRST book on personal finance, it might be worth reading.

More spiritual than financial.

Not what I was expecting at all. This book contains very little real financial advice. It's mostly spiritual self improvement kind of stuff. Rich Dad poor Dad is 100x better and if you want something to that's short and gets down to the nitty gritty that is short and solid advise, try total money makeover. 1/10 I would not recommend this book.

A new Money headspace

If you want a completely different look at money work and how we meaningful changes, stick with this book. A significant portion of the book is focused on social and evironmental issues and values. I could see people having trouble with this part, but I feel the solutions proposed are practical and refreshingly individualized. In fact the steps in themselves are easy and straightforward. The true value is how many ways they can be applied.

Better than any debt free book to date

I've read all kinds of debt freedom books out there. All off them have the same basic after line. Put a budget together and track everything you spend! From there you work to eliminate any debts you have in your life. At the same time you're investing and saving. Nice and it works.

Here you learn to look at your money as you spend it by eliminating budget categories. By doing this I saw where I could cut $200-$300 from my budget! That is a huge number when you break down what that would do to a bill if added to the current payment. Alone I can be free of student loans Oct 2019!

The author also takes a minimalist approach to life which I feel great about! I had to downsize to move giving up 50% of what I owned by donation it selling it. I love not having a lot! what to do with it all was annoying when it was in my house! Now I have lots it's space and want to get rid of more of it!

Then the book takes you into how to track your wealth and where you're at I in the whole process!

I really enjoyed this book and will lead it again

Brutal and simplistic

The FIRE concept is great and has and will change lives. This book/audio book was very boring to listen to. I feel like it’s can be distilled down to a 1/3 of its current size/length. The narrator was not the best I have heard. The portion on logging how much you spend went on and on.

Not what you expect

This books is literally hours and hours of Vicki rambling on and on about how Americans are ruining the environment. I expected a book about how change my relationship with money. What I got was guilt trip about how I am ruining the earth for the future generations. Waste of my money.

Just buy and learn

Great book. Lots of practical advice of stuff you already know you should be doing. I like how the author breaks down the steps to help you along the way and hey “no shame no blame,” get on your way.

Thought provoking but too much bean counting

At times very interesting and not main stream (but becoming more popular) but disappointed by the accounting focus; goes in too much length into trivial details, e.g. “how do you book the quarters you find in the vending machine?”. Too many examples to explain relatively simple ideas (easy to understand but not as easy to implement)
