In these tough financial times, everyone is looking for ways to save money. The appeal of this book is just that, showing how the Amish, even amidst financial troubles, manage to no only survive, but even flourish in some areas.
Personally I was not only interested in the financial aspect of the Amish, but their lifestyle in general, and in this book I saw a glimpse of that. In order to learn about the Amish way of managing money, you have to learn some about the Amish, and what you find is almost the same wisdom passed down from even your grandparents and great grandparents. There are things that most of us tend to disregard in these days, such as saving money for big purchases, not acquiring needless debt (or any debt in some cases), and even growing your own food. As I continue to grow older, I am beginning to see just how wise these actions are, and how we should maybe not only have listened more to our grandparents, but also take a look at how the Amish manage. I once heard Dave Ramsey say, “If you want to be rich, then do what the rich do.” We can take the same approach here. If you want to be good at managing your money, then find those who are good at it, and do what they do.
