Well written, but without the New York real estate explosion he wouldn't have made it.,
This review is from: A Million Bucks by 30: How to Overcome a Crap Job, Stingy Parents, and a Useless Degree to Become a Millionaire Before (or After) Turning Thirty (Paperback)
It's written as sort of a tip-guide to making a million. He's cheap and that's great and he has some great methods for unconsciously living below your means. The hidden savings account is a great one. Eating for two dollars a day in NYC is also awesome. The fact is he got into Red Hook and Clinton Hill real estate just as (or before) they completely exploded. So, as long as you can buy a two bedroom in Clinton Hill for $100,000 you should be all set as well. It came across to me as a tale of a real estate flipper which was not what I was looking for.
Also I thought the book ended very abruptly.
