I don't do Kindle, but the thread sent me to Amazon, where I found the free program to get Kindle books on my PC... then, even though I don't have a Kindle or a IPhone, found that I can download the Kindle app on my Android tablet.
... then... (I'm new at this), I found I can download many free books from Amazon, as well as the one cited in the thread... also the "free book of the day"...
Haven't completed all of this yet, but it's pretty simple.
Kindle Cloud...

Thanks for the kickstart...

When you get titles from Amazon, it is simple to save them to the cloud. Then they can be retrieved by any of your devices.

Thanks for this free title.

To get the android app, I just googled android kindle download... many sites. .apk file.

I downloaded the book and read two chapters. Can't recommend the book, and see no reason to read further.

If you can not download it for free, save your dollars for a Bernstein or Bogle book.

I actually enjoy reading the personal stories of the authors.

I am reading it on 'the cloud' on my ipad. I actually have met Steve S at VG diehards meetings. He is pretty straightforward and a saint in trying to reform the LAUSD 403b system.
My only problem with the book, like many good personal finance books, is its likely to be read by 'the choir' rather than the people who need to read it. He lays out his path to financial success despite many of the pitfalls he encountered in his financial development. He offers a vanguard boglehead approach which is pretty solid.If you can get the book its worth reading and passing on to those who may most benefit from it. I suspect a lot of folks here have had a similar path and understand the financial principles involved but its a good read.
