I have just finished reading your book, and it is fantastic!  Thanks so much for taking the time to write it and share your experiences and knowledge.

I now have the most important and interesting book that I've ever owned (next to The Millionaire Next Door).  I have a five year plan to retire to Thailand, and I can hardly wait to go.

You and Billy have helped me realize that I DO have enough money NOW to live my dream, and after making some changes, I can continue to enjoy my life!  I haven't had the time yet to check out the links listed in the afterword, but I have never enjoyed reading a book so much!!!

Thanks again and thanks for sharing your life with all of us!
