Finding Wholesale Happiness in A Retail World
Learn how to slay your Enough-asaurus and decide what "enough" is for you. Author, public speaker, and media personality Jeff Yeager delivers practical and life changing advice about money, happiness, and our consumer culture. As outlined in his bestselling book, The Ultimate Cheapskate's Road Map to True Riches: A Practical (and Fun) Guide to Enjoying Life More by Spending Less, Yeager teaches how to live a happier, healthier, and fuller life...but only if you're NOT willing to pay the price.

Yeager contends that for many Americans, the quality of their lives will increase and they'll be happier if they spend and consume less, not more, as 5,000 commercial messages a day encourage us to do. A "cheapskate," according to Yeager's philosophy of life, is the polar opposite of a "conspicuous consumer." Yeager encourages us to "value time, and the things you can do with it, more than money, and the stuff you can buy with it."

Praise for Jeff Yeager:
"Jeff Yeager has been one of our favorite guests over the years...he's turned pinching pennies into an art form." - Matt Lauer, NBC Today Show

"People today think frugality is no fun. Jeff puts the lie to it. Less doesn't mean deprivation - it means less stress, commuting, illness, loneliness and other ills of our 'more is better' and 'it's never enough' culture. High-joy, low-cost solutions to life's challenges. Enjoy!" - Vicki Robin, co-author of Your Money or Your Life

"[Yeager is] a natural comedian with a warm and enthusiastic Midwestern voice...listeners immediately feel they are getting useful back-fence advice from a wise next-door neighbor, who could be channeling Groucho Marx." - Publisher's Weekly


Books available for purchase and signing. Sponsored by Friends of Howard County Library. A Meet the Author event.
