The format requires very little of the former. Otter aims for brevity over War and Peace length explanations. You've got questions about personal finance? Otter's got the answers, fast and sweet, but with just enough explanation to give you confidence he knows what the heck he's talking about. It's also a fun read, which should qualify it for some special award given how dry personal finance can be. And as for the money angle...Well, I haven't done the math, but conservatively I bet following just half the advice in this book could save you more than six figures over your lifetime. Worth it Not Worth It is worth it for anyone looking to get on top of their financial life. But it strikes me as especially spot on for any recent college grad you might know: Start out in the real world with Otter showing you the way on the money front and you're gonna be just fine.
