Mr. and Mrs. W. on their blog What Life Could Be: “The book starts off with a very well-explained introduction to the whole concept of FI. It sets out all the basics from what FI means to why anyone would ever want to become FI. Gisela also considers what happens after FI and examines really important points like alternative ways of deriving your sense of self-worth and reflecting on how you can use your time in the best way possible to not only get the most out of your financially free life, but also how you can best give back to society so as not to waste your knowledge and talents once you’re no longer part of the rat race. These are things we’ve discussed often on this blog and they are absolutely central to happiness after FI.”
Zso on Amazon: “The author found a good mix of interesting people that already reached the holy grail of financial independence/early retirement and some other folks that are on the way.
If you don’t want to work until you’re old and you’re looking at strategies to reduce the number of years you are dependent of an employer, it’s quite interesting to read about people who actually did it.
The book gives you insight into many different ways people reached financial freedom by actually interviewing these people rather than talking about theoretical stuff.
It’s interesting to see what these people do now that they don’t need to work. Do they sit on a beach and drink cocktails every day? Do they choose to still work for money? What are their goals?
The people interviewed in this book can’t be more different, yet they reached the same goal mostly in different ways.
Enjoy the read! Very inspiring!”
