Immediately after reading the anecdote and the "book in 3 pages", I knew this would have a positive effect on my life. Already excited to put this books words into my mindset. 10/10!!!
Made me shoot my shot
Great book. Made me understand money and it's role in my life. Explains the how to use money to be happy, but why money can't buy happiness.
Been waiting for this!
This is absolutely the most intriguing finance book I've read so far. Swing the Hammer provides a fascinating and novel perspective on using money as a tool rather than as source of supposed pleasure (or more realistically, insecurity and fear).
My takeaway of this book is that the author is not just a super intelligent finance-oriented person, but someone with a huge heart and truly cares about helping people... It's not about the money, its about the people.
Highly recommend this book for anyone - you DO NOT need to be a finance buff, in fact that might hinder your ability to truly appreciate where the author takes you through the book.
My new favorite book!
Fantastic. A must read for anyone in or pursuing a career in finance!
Eye Opening Read
Loved this book! Great read that explains how you can use money as a tool to determine your own happiness rather than letting the money control you. Would recommend to any adults looking to be more financially literate
