Spend Less, Save More!

My headline summarizes the book. I've saved you $4.99. It is not accurate to even characterize this book as "basic" or "fundamental". Do not bother purchasing it unless you are completely clueless about money.

painfully obvious

How to reduce your expenditures: 1) be mindful of your expenses. How to stay busy in retirement: 1) pursue your passions . 2) travel. ... investments have risk. Get out of debt. Save more. Spend less. Don't eat out. Yep...that's about out. If you're the least bit financially literate (and you probably are if you're considering this book and reading this review) then you will be PAINFULLY bored to tears by the obvious truisms and repetition.

Way to basic to learn anything

Unfortunately I didn't learn anything by reading this book. It provides an oversimplified look at investing and saving. Wished it had gone into more detail and spent less time reiterating obvious points.

MAYBE A Good Starting Point for Some

Some things seemed obvious to me. Some of the info may serve some. However, I was hoping for more specifics for each topic. Such as a specific plan to accomplish each goal.

Obvious material and a waste of my money! Skip it

I loved the title of the book but that's where it ended for me. It might work for a newbie but this material was obvious is so many ways.

Disappointing with lack of analytical insight

What disappointed you about Extreme Early Retirement?

Advice was generic and was simply restatements of surface-level early retirement statements: cut expenses, live on less, etc. The narrator sounded computer generated and struggled with common financial abbreviations.

Any additional comments?

More analytical analysis of HOW to achieve early retirement, not WHY early retirement is great. Who needs to be convinced that becoming financial independent earlier has a negative side. Advice was simply too generic for anyone interested in the topic.
