Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. May 04, Dawn rated it liked it. The Difference is that there is no one difference.
The best parts of this book were the interviews that prefaced each chapter. Each interview is with a person who succeeded financially, and they all did it a little differently. The end result is that meeting your charzky goals is a lot like reaching your goal weight: This isn’t the kind of book that will help if you’re wa The Difference is that there is no one difference. This isn’t the kind of book that will help if you’re wallowing in credit card debt, or are about to file bankruptcy.
Instead, I would recommend The Difference for long-term planning purposes, and in conjunction with something like David Bach’s The Automatic Millionairewhich offers an actual roadmap for lifelong financial planning.
Apr 12, Sarah rated it it was ok Shelves: This book reminds me of The Secret meets a financial advisor. I have one main gripe with this book: She argues that personality This book reminds me of The Secret meets a financial advisor. I think it would be more productive to take the traits that you, as an individual, possess and try to exploit them to your advantage rather than trying to force yourself to be something you are not.
Forcing yourself to go against your nature dlfference, in my opinion, back fire in your face at some point down the line. In short, you could pick up just about any magazine on the shelves right now and find a financial article that offers just as much help, if not more, than this entire book.
Save your time and money to be used on more proactive endeavors. Apr 21, Doc Opp rated it it was ok. I only read this because I diffreence it as a chahzky sample.
This happens occasionally for books cyatzky use JDM psychology and behavioral econ – maybe they think I’ll use it in my classes or something.
Anyway, the book is well written, but the analysis of the surveys is questionable at best, and the central advice is mostly common sense or else platitudes.
Want to have savings? Then be sure to save money. Don’t get discouraged and give up if you have an early failure. Its n I only read this because I got it as a free sample. Its not that there’s anything wrong here, its just that there’s nothing all that enlightening.
Mar 16, Terri rated it liked it. Apr 23, Mary rated it it was ok. I was a little disappointed. I really like hearing what she has to say on news shows, but this was really basic. I don’t think I chaztky away with anything new.
I am on a mission to try several of her others and see if something comes up, though. Apr 22, Cynthia rated it liked it.

Apr 29, Heidi rated it it was ok. I was disappointed in this book. A lot of vague ideas and generalities that failed to inspire or impress. Jul 24, Bonnie G. I am an avid listener of Jeans podcast weekly and I have enjoyed her tv appearances and at times her blog. I grabbed this book since so many debt books examine the past or the chatzjy but not all of them stress goals or persistence. This book is based on Jeans observations of dealing with wealthy people from her chatxky at Forbes and Money and she is truly diligent about her journalistic aspirations!
It is a very complimentary book regarding why investing in yourself and saving and investing is so I am an avid listener of Jeans podcast weekly and I have enjoyed her tv appearances and at times her blog. It is a very complimentary book regarding why investing in yourself and saving and investing is so important.
It’s not super numbers, it’s not super case study, and it’s not an inverse menu guide- more like a general overview of how successful people monetize their habits- not a bad lesson! Jan 04, Grace rated it it was ok. Read this book because I got it for free from my workplace. It was a nice read that helped me gain insights into attitudes of people and their habits and how likely that is to correlate to success.
However, watch out for confirmation bias. She makes it seem as the questions she asked her subjects were the only possible things that contributed to their success, and that they would make anyone successful.

If you read this book, take away only differencw that resonate with you, and dump the rest. Aug 16, Molly Ferguson rated it it was ok Shelves: I really enjoy Chatzky’s podcast “Her Money” for the same reasons I didn’t love this book.
In her podcast, Chatzky seems extemporaneous, not judgy or preachy, and very specific. In The Difference, she made me feel bad for having debt, spoke in a lot of generalizations, and felt very stilted. I did get a couple of good tips and I liked any time she told stories, plus chatkzy parts about gender were spot-on for me.

Once you know how I am likely to behave I have to power to change it. Think about the support I receive,do they change the subject when I talk about certain topics?
