Should I Buy This Book? Review: Spend Your Way To Wealth

I really like this book. The title pretty much sums up the book. It goes over how to save money by getting discounts on pretty much everything. It gives tip on:

  • Coupons
  • Negotiating on everything
  • Traveling
  • Buying a house
  • Shopping
  • Buying a car
  • Shopping on the internet

I found it really helpful. My favorite chapter is the last one because it goes over making goals and goes over how saving money takes work.

The negative

The only thing I really found negative was that the author doesn’t believe in budgets, and equates it to dieting. I can see where he’s coming from but I think that budgets are essential to having a solid finance life. But to each their own.

The Positive

Pretty much the whole book is a positive. There are tons of money saving tips for the various things I mentioned before. It does promote buying but it does save over and over that it’s not about buying stuff you don’t need. It’s about buying stuff you would buy anyway and saving money on it.

Would I Buy it?

Absolutely. It’s a great book and I learned a lot from it as far as savings go. I would recommend it for someone who wants to learn how to save money and negotiate prices. If you are having trouble sticking to a budget then his advice on not budgeting might before you. I’d at least try it to see if it works.

Buy It

It has my recommendation.
