Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin
« on: February 09, 2017, 02:26:16 PM »
I didn't see a thread already started for this book, but let me just say: it is epic.

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/78428.Your_Money_or_Your_Life

Also I feel like the Mad FIentist's graph pairs really well with it: http://www.madfientist.com/fi-laboratory/

For myself, I've read the book but I recently listened to the audiobook (for free, through my library, on Overdrive) and it was fantastic.

Anyone else love this book?

I still need to read this book, as it is like the FIRE bible, or at least a founding document.

But, if you're looking for forum threads, if you google:

forum.mrmoneymustache.com "your money or your life" will get you to some existing discussion

Just the motivation I needed to place it on hold at my library.  I've heard so many great things about this book I'm excited to read it.
I have a journal: http://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/journals/'i-was-in-the-pool!-i-was-in-the-pool!'-shrinkage-is-real/

Definitely like a FIRE bible!!! Damn it's good. I loved the updated audiobook. Vicki Robin has such a nice voice.

Thanks for the reminder about google. I actually went page by page in the book club section of the forum, and went ctrl F on each page to see if this title had been mentioned in its own thread. I think perhaps not? But this book is so great, if it gets mentioned time and time again - that's ok too ;)

Yes YMOYL is the book that started it all I would say.
It was a life changing book for many people, including myself.
I definitely recommend it.

In my own book, I told the story of how I never got past the first chapter (?), yet it transformed EVERYTHING for me. Also, Googling the title many years later is how I found this forum :)
