When I first heard the title, I was a little skeptical. Usually when I read books, I highlight one or two of the most profound sentences. With this book, I found myself highlighting in the preface. I wish that I was required to read this in high school, because the lessons that this book teaches is lacking in public education. It mixes an intriguing story of the author, Jason Vitug, with practical information to reducing debt and saving money. This book pays for itself by the money you save from ...more

You Only Live Once is one of the only finance books I would recommend to others.

Though geared to Millenials this approach to money can help everyone kick start better financial fitness for ourselves.

Vitug rightly asserts that we should link what we spend money on to what we value. This is a radical approach that no other "expert" who has written a financial book has ever stated. And I've read nearly all the top financial expert books out there.

I've installed it on my iPad.

I had the privilege of meeting Jason at a finance conference and I know he lives what he writes. The real deal. As a personal financial counselor I liked it from page 1. All of us in finance will preach the key to success is spending less than you make (and investing the difference.) Vitug advises that we should shoot to "save more than we spend." One might note 'spend less than you make' and 'save more than you spend' are two entirely different statements. Yes, that would mean saving/investing ...more

It is a personal finance book filled with writing and the author's personal experiences, minus the numbers.

I liked the book. Gave a different perspective and was more about improving self and setting yourself to succeed with your finances and spending habits. Would recommend to others

I didn't really understand why the book was called You Only Live Once but it made sense after the first few pages. I related to the story and realized how I was brought up has impacted how I treat money. This is the second book I've read on money and it got me thinking how much more I have to learn. It was a good read and I like how easy it was to read with the action items in the book.

It's broken down in a good way with an actual budget to create and some exercises at the end to keep me focused
