Where the old view of success was measured by cash, stocks, and various luxuries, the new view will be guided by financial restraint and a new awareness of what truly matters. A passionate manifesto on finding meaning beyond money and status, this book delivers a sound blueprint for living well on less.

  • Live frugally without deprivation
  • Follow in the footsteps of real people who have effectively forged new financial identities

The New Good Life provides much-nee...
