5.0 out of 5 stars Generation Earn- a must-read, May 6, 2011
This review is from: Generation Earn: The Young Professional's Guide to Spending, Investing, and Giving Back (Paperback)
This book is a must-read about personal finances, particularly relevant for the 20-, 30- and 40-somethings today. It covers a huge variety of personal finance questions- ranging from whether to buy or rent, how to plan and save for a baby, how to start a non-profit or invest in causes that you care about. My favorite part about the book is that it is very practical and gives concrete suggestions, as well as references to sources and websites to follow-up on any of these issues. I bought it and read it immediately, shared it with my parents who loved it, as well as my brother.

The best part about the book is that it provides you with really relevant ideas about how to get on top of your finances. Not only did it get me thinking about changes that I could make, but even a few months after having first read it, I find myself turning back to it, to refer back to Ms. Palmer's tips, websites, sources, and ideas.

This is a great graduation present for young college graduates! But it's also a great present for older generations. Like another reviewer said, we live in a different world. Some of us are in school for longer, so we are making different financial decisions and trade-offs than our parents did and this book helps us figure out how to manage these decisions to reach our goals in a financially sound way.

I highly recommend this book!
