Yes, I have read it and enjoyed it very much. It's about a couple (Jacqueline Blix and David Heitmiller)
who actually applied the nine steps of YMOYL became financially independent and adopted a life of voluntary simplicity. They give practical ideas for how to apply the steps and share personal experiences regarding health care, children and what it was like to break the ties to corporate America.

I have read "Getting A Life" and found it to be a real disappointment. The problem is that it is sold as a "companion" book, but the writers took the approach of assuming that you HADN'T read YMOYL and therefore spent half of the book rehashing the concepts from YMOYL. How that makes it a companion book I'll never understand.

My issue with the book is that I expected more from it, and was disappointed (especially since I bought it). If you can borrow it from the library and keep your expectations low, you may enjoy it more than I did. While I consider YMOYL to be a keeper for my personal library, I wouldn't bother with "Getting A Life."
