Killing Sacred Cows (Cover)

This is my first book review so bear with me on this, I would love to get some feedback on this format and length, leave me a comment or drop me an e-mail.

This book stands to fly in the face of all personal finance books you have read in the past, the system focus on what the author calls your “Soul Purpose.” With Soul Purpose all your dreams, financial and otherwise will come true. If you cease to focus on accumulation and start to focus on utilization you won’t have to worry about the amount of money you have accumulated because you will be doing what you love and enjoy and will be producing value for those around you.

The book was written by Garret B. Gunderson who became a millionaire by the age of 26, owns 26 companies, and was the winner of the SBA Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.  He coaches elite business owners in the financial services industry and has created programs to empower people to achieve wealth.  The book was co-authored by Stephen Palmer, a scholar, a teacher, a writer, and an entrepreneur.  The premise of the book is that everything you have learned about finance and wealth is a myth and everything you are doing now may help you build wealth but it won’t help you to enjoy your life. The authors address 9 “Myths” about money and why these “myths” are so destructive to our financial well being:

Myth 1:
Finite Pie – This chapter seeks to debunk the myth that there is only a finite amount of money in society and for every dollar we get someone else loses a dollar. This chapter sets the basis for the book by showing how money is just a representation of value and whatever you purchase with your money you value more than the money itself, addition the person you purchased the item from values your dollars more than the item they sold.
