"Had I read this book in my 20's, I'd be financially independent today. It's a remarkable blend of fabulous research with clear and lively writing. You'd pay an expert quite a sum for this caliber of counsel. That's why I say that the best investment you make this year just might be this book. Your second best investment will be the copies you buy for your children." (Dr. Dwight "Ike" Reighard, former Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer, HomeBanc - One of Fortune's 100 Best Places to Work, four years in a row)
"As a practicing CPA and financial counselor for the past 35 years, I've read scores of books and periodicals on personal finance. Just when you think you've heard it all, something like this comes along. It's rare and refreshing to find a book so enjoyable, so accurate, and so life-changing. I'm purchasing hundreds of copies to give away to graduating seniors." (Larry Winter, Winter & Scoggins CPA's; Certified Valuation Analyst, Certified Fraud Examiner, Personal Financial Planning Specialist)
"A fast, fun read with practical and often remarkable insights. Should be required reading for every high school senior and every young adult who's landed his or her first full-time job. I'm incorporating parts of the book into my lectures." (Robert A. Martin, MBA, CPA, Lecturer of Accounting in the prestigious Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University, founder of a tax and consulting firm)
"Every young person should read this book! It's the first time I ever laughed out loud (repeatedly!) and darn near cried while reading a financial book. And, the content is so practical that I find myself routinely reflecting on the principles in my daily money decisions. I am thoroughly impressed with the scope of information covered in this book and consider it, by far, the most valuable book on finances I've ever read." (Callie C. Brown, author of The Complete Guide to Investing in Gold and Precious Metals)
