More About the Author

Thanks for your interest in my books. I write about personal finance and design crossword puzzles. You can decide whether that's a healthy combination or something that requires treatment! Either way, here's a brief summary of my philosophy on each.

Crosswords - My wife got me interested in crosswords and collaborates on many aspects of these books. Our goal is to design puzzles which, aside from the theme entries, can be solved using general knowledge. But it will help if you like puns, wordplay, and misleading clues! Our hope is you will find them entertaining and enjoyable.

Personal Finance - Almost everything we do from providing for our families to preparing for retirement is a financial transaction of some sort. Sadly, it's the uneducated participants in our modern economy who lose. The good news is that understanding money is not rocket science. You don't have to be a math genius and most of what you need to know for financial success is common sense. My goal is to explain financial matters in plain English so that everyone can make the most of what they've got.

Highly recommended. I have been looking for a book that provides a solid basic understanding of personal finance. This hits that mark and is a great starter for teenagers as well as anyone looking to gain control of their finances. It is a must read for every teenager before they hit 18.

The conversational format, the generational tension, and the clarity of the advice set this apart from most finance books written in the hope of waking young people up while compound interest still has time to work wonders for them. My hope would be that some astute high school administrator makes this available to all her charges. The inclusion of a basic explanation of income tax and how it can work powerfully for or against you is good for us all. The coffee theme is perfect for this timeless wake up call.

People starting in life often don't think carefully about the future and make very poor financial decisions. This book walks though many of the pitfalls people make when they start earning money in an entertaining way. I highly recommend it!

Everyone will think you are reading a novel, not a book about finance, even you yourself. It starts with a problem, not of some financial savvy, but someone clueless and indebted like us. Then it tell us, like an uncle advising his young nephew, what can we do step-by-step, little-by-little to change from what we are to the better and start threading on the path to be rich.
It's very good for everyone who want to know more about money but is overwhelmed by financial jargon.

This book is a must read for young people about to venture out on their own. It would make an ideal high school graduation gift. It covers all of the important financial concepts and is written in an easy to read conversational style. The advice is sound and you come away with the feeling that - Wow, this all makes sense!

Format: Paperback
This book is a gem for those 20-somethings in your life who you wish you had talked about healthy money habits as much as you did about eating veggies and safe driving tips. It covers all the ways to become financially independent, but it's the way that he presents these easy to digest concepts that makes this book great--it's written as an ongoing conversation between a money savvy uncle and his early-twenties nephew who doesn't have a clue about how to make the most out of his first real job income. In each chapter, the pair meet in different coffee shops around Portland, Oregon and talk about a single topic that gradually includes more complex concepts. The banter between uncle and nephew is completely relatable and believable, and the information is so well explained in everyday language that even I learned something that I could immediately put to use, even though I'm well past my 20's!

An excellent job of writing a guide to understanding money. I would heartily recommend it to each and every family with teenagers and twenty somethings. By using the Uncle/Nephew approach it comes across very well. Not only is the research of money products well done, the author has created a desire on my part to visit the coffee shops of Portland. It could and should be a reference manual in every high school in the country where economics is taught or even touched upon. It is so well done.
About a dozen steps above a Dick and Jane story but written with great clarity on sometimes difficult subjects.

I was given a copy by a friend of the author and was quite impressed. I am buying two copies to send to my nephews. I think its a great book, especially for young people.
