Book Review: You Need A Budget 📚

I’ve been using You Need A Budget (YNAB) exclusively for several years. They’re a quirky company with a great culture and an even better product. There’s been a trend towards moving to the subscription model in software, and YNAB is a prime example of how that can lead to innovation, iteration, and delivering tremendous value.

I was happy to jump on board when YNAB’s founder, Jesse Mecham, released his first book. In it, Mecham lays out, in depth, the four rules that YNAB uses in its particular approach to budgeting.

There was some controversial points in the book, particularly when Mecham detailed his personal views on things such as college funding, but overall, it was a good read.

If you don’t budget, YNAB is a great tool to use and this book can help get you up to speed, fast.
