Quit Like a Millionaire: No Gimmicks, Luck, or Trust Fund Required by Kristy Shen

 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.
