It's the companion book to "Live Rich." The guy had some interesting ideas. The "guerilla employee" label comes to mind. Basically, commit to no company, make as much cash as you can, forget working for benefits, and sock the cash away to fund your own retirement/bennie plan. Something to that effect.

The "Die Broke" book is basically the extension of the philosophy. Have your assets fund your retirement, but leave nothing for anyone else. Especially your heirs. Figure a way to transfer the wealth BEFORE you die, so they can enjoy it and you can enjoy their enjoyment.. Something to that effect.

All in all, I thought it was okay. Nothing earth shattering.
