I read this book on my Kindle. I chose this book because I enjoy reading how other people have gotten out of debt, or walked away from a career they didn't love, etc. My husband and I are on this road as well, and I love to read other people's ideas and thoughts on how they got off one journey they didn't love, and headed in the direction their heart truly wanted to take them.

Mr. Hamm has several different thoughts on changing things about one's life whether it's financial, professional, or personal. I thoroughly enjoyed reading his insight. He is very motivational, and has given me some different ideas on things that I can do, changes that I can make. He has inspired me to do something each day to move towards those changes.

If you are feeling dissatisfied with where you are in life, financially, professionally, or personally, I would strongly reccommend this book to you. It's an easy read with practical ideas! ( )

With his help, you can get out of debt, start moving forward, and build the strong personal community that offers true happiness—no matter what happens to the economy.
