Sound advice and impressively complete May 5 2012
By Rick Van Ness - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recommend this book. Three things that I like about this book are (1) the advice is sound, (2) he writes well, and (3) the book is impressively complete in the breadth of topics it covers. I wouldn't hesitate giving this to my son and daughter, both in their twenties. Truthfully, at 315 pages (mostly text), I don't see them reading it from cover to cover but rather using it as a good reference book for when buying a car, buying a house, wondering about credit scores, or setting up an investment portfolio. It's impressively complete! Best of all, he gets the big picture correct about the role of money in our lives to secure a healthy and happy future.

Great Advice and Funny Aug. 21 2012
By L. Garment - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Saving money for retirement wasn't even on my radar until I read this book! Since I'm still in college I thought I didn't really have to worry about saving up for my future or emergencies. Now I know better. This book explains why saving is so important and how to get started. For example, I was able to explain how credit scores work to my roommates when I was done. It's good for a laugh, too! (I actually laughed out loud while reading it.) I loved reading the case studies.

The section about supplemental income was a special eye opener. Now I can tell which people have good financial habits and which are going to be stressed out for a long time coming. (Not me!)

Even though I don't see myself buying a car or house or opening an IRA anytime soon, I can now say that I understand how all of that works and how starting to manage my finances now can have a big impact when the time comes. Best of all, this book got me really excited to save! That sounds silly, but it's true!
