It' snice to read things that are basic--rather than trying to decipher a book that talks over your head. The chapters are clear and self-descriptive--from choosing a 401-K to setting up a budget to managing unexpected expenses--so it's easy to zoom in on what you're looking for.
This book may be too elementary for advanced financial wizards--but they probably have it all figured out already, right?
Best part for me personally? Her initial chapter on "What's your mind money-set." I was able to read it out loud and start "the talk" with the husband on our relationship with money. Her tone and approach is much better than anything I've found this year in trying to broach that difficult subject.
Important to know:
1) Her tone is that of a really smart friend that knows the latest and cares: positive attitude without any games or guilt.
2) The advice is solid and current - even as a research junkie (and with a degree in a related field), it would take me weeks to find and validate the information, websites and tips she has. I'd rather read hers, and spend the time making changes to my finances (whoa, stop the procrastination?).
3) The writing is well organized. The book serves either as "read to learn" end to end, or as a reference for only the topics that interest you.
4) The title is a bit of a misnomer - the goal is to become financially solid and make the most of the money you have and earn, "getting rich" the old fashioned way. Of course, it's the way to go, but if you are looking for a get-rich quick book, you are definitely reading the wrong reviews.
5) If you are in a hurry, read the summary with the 20 tips at the end, and then go back and selectively go to the chapters about the ones you have trouble implementing or need to know more about. Skim and learn the tips (in the boxes) throughout.
I've got a shelf of unread books on various financial topics, but this is the one with the underlines, the bent corners, the tape flags - and that gets read.... Highly recommend!
Laura Adams has done it! She has fashioned a book suited for the Baby Boomer and Cyberpunk alike. You need solid well informed information on retirement and planning it is here. If your so tech savey that you do not respect anything unless it has dot something behind it Laura has the pedigree and the links you crave.
I personally like the fundamentals, just like my old basketball coach,and Laura aka Money Girl covers them with style. She sets you up with that firm foundation of understanding yourself and your current net worth. She coveres all that you need to take those first steps with confidence. This is very important in my mind. Getting this right makes the rest of your plans fall into place.
Next she gets you up to speed on the things that often are taken for granted, like bank accounts. Face it banks are getting down right Scrooge-like so you better start opening your eyes.
You want to get out of Debt see chapter 5 ( also don't forget the free ebook Laura put out here on Amazon)
Real Estate,Taxes and paying for that rug rats education, Laura covers it.
She is a real person, in the real world and she is with you via her books and podcast and blogs.
The Journey is long for sure but with a great start and the support of Money Girl you will be well on your way.
