    Hey Bill!

    It's been about a year and a half since listening to your book the first time, and would love to give it a re-listen.

    ...But these links are dead!

    Could you update them again?

    Cheers :)

    They seem to work for me. Check again. Could be just a glitch at Amazon.

    I just checked the bitly link data and loads of people are downloading the book and audio but I'm not getting any feedback which is a bit sad. Can anyone who's read or listened to it please come back to this thread and offer some feedback so others can know if it's worth their time?

    It's all too easy to grab something for free and then forget about it thinking that "if it costs nothing it must be worth nothing". This is often the case but in my case I'm giving away the whole box and dice only on this forum. The only currency I ask in return is feedback so I can know that I'm doing some good or that you think I'm full of **it.

    Come on guys, you can do better. If you've downloaded, read or listened to my book at least post back here to bump this thread so that others can benefit. Don't be shy. This may be one of the best value free things on the net in this category. Let others know, let me know. Let's keep bumping this thread with real feedback.

    Thanks to those who have offered feedback.

    Hey Bill, thanks for sharing your inspiring story & sharing your book!

    For Free?! What? Are you running a charity or something?

    Just kidding, I've just downloaded it, will read it and give you feedback :) Promise.

    Hi Bill,

    Finally I've read your book - and I think it's awesome. Very well written, a unique concept and interesting ideas/viewpoints. Besides your 2X Method I really like the idea of a daily dose of excitement. I will try to incorporate that into my daily routine.

    I have a question though: What is your take on saving the other half of the 2x? Am I correct that according to your philosophy - and in order to feel wealthy - it is important to spend these non-essential expenses? I am currently somewhere at 8x - and I save nearly every dime after my essential expenses. Probably I should loosen up a bit. :)

    Thanks for sharing the book for free! +REP

    Hey Bi I believe I've already given feedback as soon as I got the free book. Let me thank you again as I read it whenever I get a bit stressed about money just to keep me grounded. It is a great read and you have given a great gift to the community here. Thanks Bill.

    Thanks! Glad you liked it and it's made an impact.

    Don't forget; Tim Ferris said "excitement is the key" I added a small daily does of Excitement OR Satisfaction is the key to a great life starting today. But later (not in the book) I also added a third "shot-glass" dose to the theory and that's a daily dose of something Interesting/Fascinating. You only need one of these aspects in a small amount to have had a great day.

    Absolutely not. There's no need to spend anything after you've met your essential expenses. The key to feeling financially free is to be able to spend up to double your essential expenses on fun and luxury then you save what's left over (either your second "X" or anything above "2X") you save in the bank to build up a buffer and ultimately a bank so the interest on that bank will meet your 2X. I call that "Ultimate Wealth".

    So no, don't feel the need to spend anything on fun or luxury every week. Just being able to do will make you feel free enough. Good question!

    Wow! 8X is massive. Super cool and well done. So, to be clear; you can spend up to the same amount as your essential expenses on having a a bit of fun or enjoying some luxury (going to the beach for an ice cream might be enough luxury for you - it's totally up to you) because we all need that small release and to deny is like trying to hold back a damn of water. But you bank the last 6X and never touch it. If you want to save for something to spend in the short term you do it via your second "X" (your right pocket). Anything that goes into the bank stays in the bank forever except for the two things which I jokingly suggest could be "kidnapping ransom or health emergencies".

    Thanks for your feedback and questions. I can guarantee that your questions and my answers have helped someone else as well and your feedback has helped me know I'm hitting the mark.

    Thanks Tommo! This is the greatest compliment an author could receive. I appreciate your comment and it makes me smile that you're using my book to keep your grounded and to stress a little less.

    I've posted new links above. Read the whole thread and you'll not only find the new links but I hope a whole lot more information that you should find helpful and interesting. Thanks for the feedback.

    My original post is too old for me to edit now which is why I posted new links a few posts ago.

    Thank you! Had your book on my laptop for about a year and now read it within 3 days.
    Basically I'm already living the 2X method since I'm 16 (without calling it 2X) of course.
    Nevertheless your book gave me some great new ideas and perspectives. It also convinces me that I'm on the right track!
    Your writing style is very nice and will keep this book to read it again whenever I feel financially stressed. Will also share the message of course!
    So thanks once again, Bill! And have a great new year

    Thanks Marcel and good to hear. You're proof that we can be both young and seekers of wisdom.

    One year!...wow. I'm glad you eventually got around to it. It's a little gem that being free (on here) can trick some people into thinking it has little value. I've done this on purpose to disprove the rule that "if something seems too good to be true - it is". It amuses me to break that rule and I think this forum is the probably the greatest place online to do it. Sometimes it's not that something is too good to be true; it's that we have to raise our standards of what we believe to be "too good". Plenty of "unbelievable" things are true.

    Awesome but please only do it personally 1 on 1 in conversation. Don't be tempted to just share the actual link to my book. Instead, share the link back to this thread so people have to come into this place to discover both this forum and my book.

    No, I won't share the link to the book.
    I meant as you said in personal 1-1 conversations with people
