Foreword by Mr. Money Mustache
(New World Library / Audible)
“Millennials are re-evaluating what financial success means to them by combining frugality, minimalism, digital savvy, and smart low-cost investing to reach financial freedom,” says Jason Gardner, executive editor at New World Library.
Based on the documentary
The book and documentary feature the work of popular financial bloggers and authors including Pete Adeney (Mr. Money Mustache), Vicki Robin (YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE), Brandon Ganch (Mad Fientist), and Elizabeth Thames (FRUGALWOODS).
With coverage in the NYT:
Scott Rieckens is an Emmy-nominated film/video producer, serial entrepreneur, and author. Scott has spent his career as a storyteller connecting people with ideas. Along the way, Scott’s work has generated millions of views through a feature length documentary, multiple televisions series, short films, and a diverse range of commercial projects for Microsoft, NBC, Facebook, FOX, Taylor Guitars, Wired, and others.
Now, Scott has created Playing with FIRE, which explores the growing community of frugal-minded folks choosing a path to financial independence and early retirement. He and his family reside in Bend, Oregon.
“To the uninitiated, pursuing financial independence seems exotic, impossible, and/or daunting. But in fact, it is simple and has roots deep in the American psyche. If you wonder what this path is like in real life and in real time, Scott and Taylor will take you along on their journey: not yet finished, a work in progress, and a very engaging tale.”
— JL Collins, author of
“A truly inspirational story that proves saving is not a sacrifice. It’s a path to a life you love.”
