    My husband and I are in the process of getting out of debt through the Dave Ramsey plan. I thought this book was helpful. There were some things that crossed over what Dave Ramsey's book talks about, but there were other things that did not. I think the most helpful portion of the book was the different ideas to save money in different areas. For example, he gave a bulleted list on what to do to save on utility bills and grocery shopping. My husband and I are in the process of getting out of debt through the Dave Ramsey plan.

    I felt like this book was a preface for joining an organization where you would get additional help and resources towards your goals. It had good examples and gave me some ideas or other things to consider to increase my wealth.

    I found all the advice in this to be solid, though there was nothing new in it for me.

    This is an incredible book that I'd like to recommend to everyone. If you're not a woman, you can read the same 5 lessons in The 5 Lessons a Millionaire taught me about Life and Wealth. This book is a quick read and that's a big plus since I've slogged through quite a few finance type books (and some I didn't finish). Richard outlines the steps to financial freedom in easy to understand terms with plenty of interesting examples.

This book is a quick read and that's a big plus since I've slogged through quite a few finance type books (and some I didn't finish). Richard outlines the steps to financial freedom in easy to understand terms with plenty of interesting examples. He writes in such a way that I felt like I was listening to a motivational speaker (which he is) while reading. I felt so encouraged about the things that my husband and I are trying to do right with our finances and supported on those things that we can improve on. My nitpicks: I would’ve liked to see more new information in this book, instead of mostly a repeat of the first book, The 5 Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me about Life and Wealth, (which I also own) but this is a minor nitpick since repetition is the greatest teacher. My Favorites: My favorite lesson is Winning in the Margins, where Richard teaches you how to look for new ways to increase your income by thinking outside of the box and looking for opportunities instead of getting stuck in a rut. I love the stories he shares in the book of people who applied Winning in the Margins to add to their wealth. *Richard encourages his readers to share the 5 Lessons with someone else within 48 hours of reading the book. Okay, I'm a few hours late, but I hope this review will encourage you to pick up the 5 Lessons and revolutionize your financial life!

    There's a few decent, common-sense ideas in here, but its accompanied by a lot of nonsensical crap. I mentally tapped out at the "invest your nest egg in precious metals" advice. Metals are for extra "fun money", not your 401(k). He hits a little bit on investing, but there's no substance beyond "invest your money". I don't understand why this book is so highly rated, honestly. There's a few decent, common-sense ideas in here, but its accompanied by a lot of nonsensical crap.

    The book was an easy listen but pretty condescending to women. But the last bit about join my club for $10 and $9.95 a month? Seriously? Isn’t this the very thing he was trying to warn against? He lost all credibility with that ploy. He should stick to what he does best, fiction. Leave financial advice to the experts.

    Tailored specifically for women, this book shares the lessons Evans learned from his millionaire mentor. One unique idea from this book is building a nest egg with silver coins or other bullion that can be tangibly seen as it grows.

    A very, very basic book with absolutely nothing new in it at all. He's not one of my favorite fiction authors and he's definitely not one of my favorite personal finance authors either.

    I want to test out Richard Paul Evans' suggestion to ask when negotiating prices, "Is that the best you can do?" According to him, people will often go down in price if you will just ask this question. He has other good tips as well; some of them are no brainers, but it's good to be reminded. He warns against "shopping therapy". I know that I do this when I have a bad day. I want to spend money on myself, usually by buying a treat. I would save a lot of money if I wouldn't do this.

    There is great information in this book on how to be in a good spot financially, but it was all stuff I have heard before. There wasn't anything really new. Some of the information was a bit outdated as well such as the interest rates but those are bound to change anyway.

    Richard Paul Evans is a wise man. His advice regarding money is sound, simple and well deserved of a following. Thoughts about money shape our lives, and Evans shares money strategies to get out of debt, live a freer feeling life, and take comfort in setting up the future. It is a quick and no nonsense read.

    A few years ago before the financial crisis took us to this state, Mr Evans wrote the first Five Lessons that was written generically.

This year with folks futures looking dubiously, especially women, he comes back again with a new version written especially for women. Again, he talks about the Five Lessons taught to him by a millionaire years ago in his church, and he took them to heart and started his own fortune. Women can learn some timely lessons on how to start a nest egg, how to preserve that egg, and ways to start it. Winning in the Margins talk about the banking law of compound interest and how it can work for you as well as against you. The very last law, Give back talks mostly on tithing back to your church that most of us were taught religiously in our churhes. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to all folks like me, who have NO job at present, but still hope no matter what. especially to all women who feel that no matter what, we'll still earn less than men. perhaps with current President Obama's recent legislation regarding equality pay will open the door for more legislation. In the meantime, READ THIS BOOK!!!

    Based on simple principles of action and responsibility, this book is a quick, but inspiring read. The concepts are down-to-earth: know where your money comes from and where it's going, do your research and ask questions before making purchases, have a positive and active attitude about your finances, etc. I was often reflecting, "Yeah, that's true - I knew that." ...but it outlines the most important aspects of a simple financial strategy in a realistic and non-intimidating way.

I appreciate that I finished the book feeling encouraged, rather than overwhelmed, and that there were small but specific steps I could begin doing immediately. This is a wonderful and valuable book for people in any financial situation, and I think it is interesting enough to also be a good read for teen-age or college-age individuals as well.

    If you're interested in gaining wealth (as opposed to getting out of debt) this is a good book to have on your "read" shelf. Although this book is tailored to women, I think a lot of the financial advice in it goes both ways but the examples that Richard gives to illustrate his point are said with women in mind. Much of this info are things that I have heard before in other finance books but the examples that he provides along with him help drive those points home.

Much of this info are things that I have heard before in other finance books but the examples that he provides along with him help drive those points home. The only downside to this book is that the financial numbers in it (particularly savings account interest projections) are clearly outdated. He gives an example of why to put money in a savings account with compound interest of 10% whereas now, you're lucky to find a savings account that'll give you even 1%. Definitely something to keep in mind while reading this, but I don't think that's any reason to ignore it.

    These lessons are very similar to ones I've read of before in other money management books, but this is more simply put -- a sort of personal finances in a nutshell book. Some of the lessons have several morsels or small courses, so at some points of the book, I lost track of the 5 core lessons in the middle. However, there is not the usual minutiae that most books of this sort are full of. Hope they take hold in my brain help make me very good at managing our finances.

    This book was incredible. It was easy to understand, inspiring, and well organized. Yes, a lot of it seems to be common sense, but if you look at the state of so many people's finances, you begin to realize that the knowledge isn't so "common" after all. I got the one for women because it had a shorter hold wait at my local library, but I'm sure the original is very similar, as the five lessons are still the same.
