The Power to Prosper urges readers to embark on a 21 day fast from all but necessary spending. I definitely appreciated several of the tips but I think this is a bit too extreme. For instance: Singletary recommends that you stop giving gifts. I think that moderation is a good thing, but I’m not convinced that ceasing all gift giving is a good idea.

The tone of the book is also a little too sassy for me. While I appreciate “Big Mama’s” tips Singletary should acknowledge that her grandmother does not carry the same level of authority with the average reader. I like the idea of the fast but this has not been the most helpful book in finances for me.
