Editorial Reviews

Review

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

I don't usually read books about money, since I find the subject boring and the advice usually doesn't work or fit my philosophy of life. I was attracted to this book by its exceptionally good reviews (and because the author sent me a free copy). I can honestly say it is the best information and advice I have ever seen in a book about money. It was written exactly for people like me, who don't make money the purpose of living but who don't want to die poor either.

Miller clearly had young people in mind when he wrote this book but, even though I am in my 60s, I still found it helpful. I also found that I had been practicing many of the principles he advocates... like living below your means, never paying full price, shopping for bargains, and not spending money on things you can do without. When your income goes up, you don't have to ramp up your expenses to match it. You can keep on living on a smaller budget and save the extra income. Some critics will say that's no fun and it takes away what for many is the incentive to increase their income. But when you see how your savings can add up, and the additional benefit of not having credit card bills to pay, you will also see that this plan DOES let you eventually get many of the things that really matter to you (while not wasting money on things that don't matter). Miller is saying that you should arrange your life and finances so you can actually afford those things when you buy them. That's good advice!

The book covers a wide range of topics, from buying clothes, cars and houses to investing the savings you will have if you follow these guidelines. The book teaches these principles through conversations of a group of young people, meeting with a teacher, for discussions over breakfast.

Format: Paperback
This is an informative and entertaining book about personal finance. While some of the detailed information is specific to the USA, all of the principles are universal.

This book follows the adventures of four diverse students (the Counterculture Club) led by an interesting financially savvy teacher. The teacher, Mrs Kramer, agrees to mentor the students as they learn about earning money and controlling expenses. The strength of this book, in my view, is that it focuses on each of the students as individuals and recognises that each has different strengths, desires and aspirations.

This book is primarily directed to those aged between 16 and 32, but there is information there useful to those of us outside that age range. Consider these four issues: getting out of debt and accumulating wealth; finding your strengths and passions and how to make a living from them; how to get ahead when the work you love does not produce a lot of money; and living a more fulfilled life. Consideration of these issues is framed in a way which should particularly appeal to Generation Y - but it isn't too late for the rest of us.

The book is divided into four parts:
Investing Money
Saving Money
Making Money
Enjoying Money

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and especially enjoyed the way in which all of the participants learned from each other. This book would be a great asset to any household.

Format: Paperback
This book provided me with an amazing insight into many different areas of personal finance. The author covers every topic from saving and investing money to making and enjoying money; and better yet, the book is written in an exciting and fun to read format that won't bore you or become a chore to read. I've read...eh tried to read...many other personal finance books, and I'm sure a lot of them had very good information in them; however, they were not engaging enough to get through, and so I wasn't able to gleam most of that good information. This book was different though. With each page I found myself more and more engaged, and before I knew it I had read the whole book, taking a wealth of financial knowledge with me. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, regardless of how much you may or may not know about personal finance. Everyone could take something away from this book. I especially recommend this book to anyone in high school or college, because when it comes to learning about finances, the sooner the better. I personally read the book as a college student, and while other personal finance books for me can sometimes make the concepts of personal finance complicated to understand, the author of this book made the world of personal finance very easy to understand on my level. This is why I think this book would be especially great for any teen or young adult out there trying to get a head start on their financial future.

I'm coming from the opposite direction from a lot of folks on this book in that the style it's written in has never been good for me--and yet I'm still giving it four stars.

I'm one of those people who just by personal preference hasn't ever been into this type of screenplay teaching method, and thus I only ever picked up this book in the first place during a temporary $0 sale on the Kindle version. No risk, potential return, right?

And I definitely got a return. Although I'm not a convert to the format, and most of the information wasn't new to me either, there were still nuggets sprinkled throughout the book of really important points distilled into very concise phrases that pack a punch and stick with you or make you internalize a concept more than you'd done before. The simplicity and directness of the "finding a new way to keep score" conversation (income level vs. total wealth) would have been worth paying the price of admission. It's one of those things I've known for a while intellectually, but hadn't encountered the right phrasing to make it an easy part of my daily vocabulary. And I will freely say that I had not sat down and calculated my net worth in years, and this book prompted me to do just that.

Any book that inspires even a small positive real-world action is four stars in my book, and my action wasn't even that small. I'm glad I read it. And for those out there who are more comfortable with the format than I happen to be, it's probably a must-read. Certainly good for high school students and college students regardless of their opinions on format, since it applies directly to their particular financial concerns and is simple and clear enough to spare them a lot of pain later in life.
