This was an interesting book. I learn a lot however she lost me in the later chapters where she talks about outrunning inflation by traveling to other countries where the dollar goes longer. I like traveling as much as the next person, but I would not like to live months in Malaysia as she mention in her book.
She has many good points in this book and it is definitely worth reading. I am older than she is so I have already done some things that she does not agree with such as paying off my house. I have invested and have diversified my portfolio. I have annuities, mutual funds, muni bonds, and after reading this book I have invested in indexes as well. I am also planning on maxing out my 401K. My wife just went back into the workforce as a teacher and we are investing all of her money. Shen is very bohemian and does not want to have kids which is fine. However I already have two kids that are my life and I could not even imagine being alive without them.
