Review: 'Your Money or Your Life' by Joel Dominguez & Vicki Robin

Are you willing to trade two weeks of your life for a high-definition television set? What about six months of your life for a brand new BMW? Your Money or Your Life will teach you to think about money in a completely different way: as a tangible form of your life's energy and effort.

On a fundamental level, everyone who works exchanges their time and energy for money. After realizing this fundamental truth, financial decisions like purchasing products via debt or staying in a high-income but stressful job take on a greater sense of urgency: your life and your freedom are at stake.

Your Money or Your Life will help make the mental and emotional commitment necessary to eliminate debt, develop a savings plan, set your financial priorities, avoid unnecessary purchases, and work only as much as you need to in order to enjoy a fulfilling life.
