An Average Joe’s Pursuit for Financial Freedom offers a different perspective on money than what is traditionally taught by our parents and in our school systems. The reason there is such a discrepancy between the wealthy and the poor is due to the difference in the way money is perceived. We are not born with the ability to maintain wealth: it is something that is learned. The knowledge of knowing how to make money work to generate passive income is something that anyone can learn as long as they are disciplined. An Average Joe’s Pursuit for Financial Freedom is based on practical concepts and discusses the problems that the majority of us face with our personal finance. The concepts in this book are based on theory by an author that practices what he writes about.


Ok, first I have to admit that this is really not my kind of book.  I usually find books like this one so boring and complicated.  An Average Joe's Pursuit for Financial Freedom is written in a language that everyone can understand.  It is written by someone that most American's relate to.  The author was not born into an affluent family.  Like the title says, he is an average Joe, a middle class American that is trying to get by and to make some money.

Most of us live our lives struggling to get by and to pay our bills.  We don't have all kinds of money to cover retirement, much less deal with a sudden job loss or major medical bills.  This book gives us the tools we need to remedy this problem.  It does take discipline, time and research but anyone can change their financial situation.

This book doesn't have a bunch of new information.  Michael Munsey states that he has gathered and used information from many sources to gain financial freedom.  What he does do is put that information in an easy to read and use format.  I know that most of us think that books like this are written in a foreign language.  Well, this one isn't.  There are parts that are still a little boring for me, but that is me.  I don't think it will be for everyone that reads this book.

I give this book 4 stars.  It is very informative and written to where anyone can understand the concepts.  However, I know that some will think this subject is boring and isn't something that everyone will enjoy reading.  If you are looking for a book to help you gain financial freedom, but are afraid that there isn't anything that you will understand, then this book is the one for you.
