This book was interesting because it says to enjoy life now, and not worry so much about the uncertain future. It says to accumulate as many interesting experiences as you can now so you can have experience dividends! The author says your life is about all the memories you make, and to leave money on the table after you die is a waste of those years you spent working for them.
I'm not sure about this, like for example, being in debt and not saving can be totally catastrophic, and from my understanding a lot of people are not financially prepared for retirement. But I guess it's a careful balance, and this book reminds you to have fun and to enjoy the moment, I guess.
