5.0 out of 5 stars Information woven into a personal story, May 23, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hot (broke) Messes: How to Have Your Latte and Drink It Too (Paperback)
I read this book over the past weekend and must say that it sounds familiar. I see so many young adults who have gotten into debt during college and then made it worse just after college. The problem with most money books is that they all give the same technical information and ignore the emotional issues that drive difficult money behaviors and attitudes.Nancy Trejos writes her personal narrative and at the same time weaves into it money management information and research, making it more interesting and more personal for the reader. You can read the book slowly and do the program that Nancy does as she does it, working on a spending plan and looking at how emotional spending operates in your life. She illustrates the dilemma of having a social life that can depend on going out to bars or restaurants and what a challenge that can be to the budget. Many tips and internet resources related to living well but less expensively are presented in the book. I am sure that a number of young women will see themselves portrayed in the story she tells and her path to financial health can work for them as well.
