I liked the premise of the book and the stories of the Amish people were interesting. Unfortunately, much of the advice is simple common sense that our grandparents tried to tell us about and we didn't listen. Growing up in a heavily Mormon area, much of the spiritual ideals about money seem incredibly familiar, just remove Amish and replace with Mormon. Maybe if I was a little more "Fancy" like the author and her expensive tastes (Talbots, the Gap, Starbucks, etc) this ideas would indeed be revolutionary, but for me it was just an "eh, what's new?" Still, I would recommend this book for people to read to get the gist of ideas that maybe aren't so old fashioned after all.
