Publisher's Summary

Rachel Cruze shines a spotlight on the most damaging money habit we have: comparing ourselves to others. Then she unpacks seven essential money habits for living the life we really want - a life in line with our values, where we can afford the things we want to buy without being buried under debt, stress, and worry. The Joneses are broke. Life looks good, but hidden beneath that glossy exterior are credit card bills, student loans, car payments, and an out-of-control mortgage. Their money situation is a mess, and they're trying to live a life they simply can't afford. So why exactly do we try so hard to keep up with the Joneses? Are we really living the lives we want, or are we chasing someone else's dream, just trying to keep up appearances on social media, at church, and in our community? Why are we letting other people set the pace for our own family's finances?

In Love Your Life, Not Theirs, Rachel shows you how to buy and do the things that are important to you - the right way. That starts by choosing to quit the comparisons, reframing the way you think about money, and developing new habits like avoiding debt, living on a plan, watching your spending, saving for the future, having healthy conversations about money, and giving. These habits work, and Rachel is living proof. Now, she wants to empower you to live the life you've always dreamed of without creating the debt, stress, and worry that are all too often part of the deal. Social media isn't real life, and trying to keep up with the Joneses will never get you anywhere. It's time to live - and love - your life, not theirs.

    "Somewhat disappointed"

    Much of the book was a regurgitation of Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover. Some of the content is really good but seems directed to a young person or couple. It's a good book if you haven't heard this stuff before but not a lot new. I liked Smart Kids, Smart Money and Total Money Makeover more.

    "Copy cat book read in a patronizing tone"

    I was really excited to get this book, but about halfway through I got really annoyed with it. It is pretty much a carbon copy of Rachel's dad's book, Total Money Makeover. I guess if you haven't read Dave Ramsey's works, it has good information. However, I could not stand the way this book was read. It felt like I was being patronized and she makes a huge emphasis on every other word. Very annoying. If you're going to buy this book, buy it in print. I don't think I can finish listening to it.

    "I'm a Dave follower so I already knew this stuff!"

    Wish I would've read the reviews before getting this book. I was looking for some character building but what I got was Rachel going through the baby steps. I'm a Dave follower and I'm very familiar with The Total Moneymaker. This book just reiterates the baby steps. A bit disappointing. Quit listening half-way through.

    "Similar content to other Dave Ramsey content"

    The book is good. However if you're very familiar with Dave Ramsey the content can be redundant as the steps and principles that she goes through are very similar to the Dave Ramsey baby steps.

    Story
    "The Spark I Needed to Renew of Debt Free Journey"
    What made the experience of listening to Love Your Life, Not Theirs the most enjoyable?

    Rachel narrates this book so it adds that extra personal touch.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Being a newly Ramsey "follower" and also a spender I thought I couldn't learn anything new from this book because "I have already heard it all". I was pleased that most of the book was actually fresh information and give me that little kick i needed to get back on the debt free wagon and take control of my future.


    Any additional comments?

    While this book doesn't force you to save save save. It does make you reflect on your life and it give you the power to decide for yourself what you really want to get out of this book.

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

    "Money management home run!"

    I really like listening to Rachel's money advice and a perspective from someone my age. She is very in tune with the modern challenges we face as young adults and gives excellent comparisons and connects her life in her sophomore book. I highly recommend this to anyone on or looking for a financial road map.

    "Exactly same as any other Dave Ramsey book"

    So disappointed. This book was identical to most any Dave Ramsey book. While I agree with the principles, I felt this book was going to be different than what it turned out to be.

    Story
    "This is just a Piggy back off her dads concepts"
    Would you try another book from Rachel Cruze and/or Rachel Cruze?

    Probably not


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    At least she tried to give it her own spin by adding in some additional millenial struggles


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


    Could you see Love Your Life, Not Theirs being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    If you already have Dave Ramsey's Books, don't bother. She just repeats her dads concepts.

    "Fantastic"

    It's interesting to realize that I had habits I had never noticed. This book is clear and defined on money habits and truly walks you through to overcome them. It really changed my way of viewing money and my everyday life.
