Product Description

Review

“Whether you’re graduating this spring, putting the finishing touches on your first post-secondary year, or if you’ve ever broken into a cold sweat reading your credit card statement, Carrick’s book will put things into perspective. You may have to move back in with your parents at some point—but hey, it’s okay.”
The Concordian

Product Description

In this era of the Boomerang Generation, here at last is a full and frank guide to avoiding the need to move back in with your parents.
 
Rob Carrick of The Globe and Mail is one of Canada's most trusted and widely read financial experts. His latest book is the first by anyone to target financial advice specifically at young adults graduating from university or college and moving into the workforce, into the housing market and into family life. Financial beginners, in other words.
 
Carrick offers what can only be described as a wealth of information, on the full life cycle of financial challenges and opportunities young people face, including saving for a post-secondary education and paying off student debts, establishing a credit rating, basic banking and budgeting, car and home buying, marriage and raising children of their own, and insurance.
 
The book is mindful throughout that parents have a big role to play in all this. It addresses young readers throughout but regularly asks them to see things from their parents' perspective. In that way, Rob Carrick is able to offer advice to both generations. He even recognizes that in these difficult times, moving back in with the folks is sometimes a short-term necessity. So there is a section devoted to such important questions as: Should your parents be charging you rent? For that and many thousands of dollars' worth of other reasons, this is a book that every parent needs to buy for each of their kids, plus one for themselves.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wish I'd had this a few years sooner June 26 2012
By Krysten
Format:Paperback
I bought this book and The Smart Cookies' Guide to Making More Dough and Getting Out of Debt: How Five Young Women Got Smart, Formed a Money Group, and Took Control of Their Finances around the same time and found them both helpful. It's too bad that financial literacy wasn't taught when I was at school, as I was pretty much clueless about saving and investing as a young adult.

Ask your kids if they know the difference between an RRSP and a TFSA - if they don't know the answer, they'd probably benefit from reading this book. An interview with the author can be found here [...]

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad Advice May 21 2012
By econ101
Format:Paperback
I have to admit. I opened this book with much anticpation. I was very disappointed with the advice Mr. Carrick provided to his readers. As a recent graduate from school I thought I could gain some insights into what I could do better with my finances, and did not.

I heartily disagree with the suggestion to not get credit cards during university, and the seeming theme that parents should pay for a large part of their childrens university education. Taking advantage of your parents may be acceptable for the upper income brackets but not for the average family. How not to move back in with yoru parents - make them pay for your education so you can graduate debt free!!! Genious... pure genious. :(

Do not buy the book. Don't spend more than you have, get a job during university and minimize your student debts - and do not drink your face off every weekend.

I've rated the book the average of the previous two reviews. Have not read it yet, and will want to browse through it before buying. Btw, it's "genius"...
