Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

John Sestina is a legend in our industry and his book is a gem. If you earn about $50,000 per year, Managing to Be Wealthy will benefit you. You will not need a computer since this book is your financial plan. Johns folksy style is easy to read. There are lots of practical worksheets. This book is a how-to guide to financial independence. John debunks some myths, and makes sense of the complex financial world we live in today.

Voted by his peers to be the #1 planner in the business, John Sestina is the undisputed expert when it comes to financial planning. The book is written in a readable format, without compromising the integrity of the complex subject. I have already given away my first copy and have ordered a second one. This is not a novel; you will want to have a notebook and hi-lighters on hand if you are serious about applying his teaching. John's clients pay hundreds of dollars an hour for his advice, and you can get his thought process here for less than twenty dollars. If you are even remotely interested in learning more about finances, I highly recommend this book.

in the world of Financial Planning John Sestina is the MAN. No one absolutely no one is more qualified to write about FP. No matter what your income is there's incredible tips for you. Especially at this price. He accomplishments alone are enough. Read anything by him and/or listen to his radio programs. Ask yourself who are you getting your financial information from? if you take their advice ( which is meant to help you of course) ask yourself, " do I want what they have?" John Sestina no nonsense logical approach works - he has the fruit on the tree to support his book. Again for the price how can you go wrong?

John Sestina shows how with Common Sense you can get on track to having a truly secure financial future. The steps he describes are in laymen's terms that can be followed without having to have a Doctorate Degree in Finance. Great Book. I've given copies of this book to my family.

This book is an absolute pleasure to read! Not only because learning the fundamentals of successful financial planning from the most qualified financial planner in the country but also the information in this book is written in a very easy to understand, very structured, not confusing language. It certainly takes the fear and myth out of financial planning. Regardless of your current financial knowledge and status, you can start to apply John's most insightful experience and valuable advice for the price of a book. This cost of this book will, for sure, give you the highest ROI. Get one today if you don't already have one and read it! Believe it or not, you will enjoy reading it too!

John Sestina hits the nail on the head with some basic, fundamental planning concepts. There are alot of "guru's" out there at are really just entertainers making money off people who don't know better, but Sestina breaks down the simplicity of a proper plan that can be utilized by people from all different economic backgrounds.
