<<I'm about half way through this book. Interesting read. They have a perspective that obviously appeals to the mindset on this board. I have a question though, for those of you who have read the book. The exercises strike me as a major time sink. I'm wondering how many of you did them, and what your impressions were. Did you / do you track every penny you spend? Have you calculated how much money you've made over the course of your life, or your total net worth to the penny? If so how much time does it take?

Quicken tracks net worth and income/expenses to an accuracy I am satisfied with.

I should have hung onto the Social Security system report on lifetime earned income --that was interesting.
