Where Turner excels is his use of metaphors that make complicated or hard-to-explain concepts easy to understand. For example, he relates various types of grocery carts (big carts, little carts, flat carts, kid carts) to various types of investment accounts (401k plans, IRAs, regular investment accounts or brokerage accounts). Then, he explains that different types of foods (such as stocks, index funds, ETFs, etc.) can go in these types of carts.
This book is ideal for someone who is intimidated by investing and gets stuck on investing terms when reading. It may also be great for those who just want to get started in investing but need firm direction in taking basic steps.
Turner does a good job of not overwhelming you with technical stuff, while giving practical advice for anyone intimidated by the thought of investing. His homely analogies to things we all know, like the grocery store, really work. I've already recommended this book to one relative who knows nothing about investing.
When you've got this one under your belt, you won't know everything, but you'll have the confidence to get started AND the knowledge to do it right. Then you'll be ready for Burton Malkiel's excellent A Random Walk Down Wall Street.
If you already know that stuff this book isn't for you. It's not blazing new territory. However the author manages to explain everything very clearly with simple language and analogies. I bought this for a friend of mine who has that "investing is for smart people!" mentality. She ate this book up and finally started contributing to her IRA. (Thank God.) This book is an EXCELLENT primer for people totally ignorant about the investing world or how to financially prepare for retirement.
The only downside is the lack of originality and that I was embarrassed by the weird scammy-sounding title.
Throughout the book, Scott Alan Turner draws analogies to food and money that are easily understood and keeps readers engaged.
The book educates readers on the basic concepts of investing such as the power of compound interest, the detriment of investment fees, the difference between stocks, bonds and mutual funds, asset allocation and more. It provides clear steps on investing that readers can feel confident about with the knowledge conveyed in the book.
Scott encourages starting to invest even with very little money and includes low cost resources and advice for doing so. I am buying this book for my millennial offspring.
The book is intentionally simple so as to not overwhelm. If you are not subscribed to Scott's podcast, Financial Rock Star, I recommend doing so. Episodes average 20-30 minutes and will reiterate and build on the concepts of this book. He discusses many other financial topics like paying off debt, budgeting, taxes, etc. and regularly addresses listeners financial questions that likely pertain to many listeners.
Scott finds an interesting way to compare stocks to something we all understand: food! It's an interesting and entertaining talent that keeps the reader engaged and amused.
Great book and a must read! I will give this to not only my own children, but to my mom (who wanted to live near a beach where she could swim every day and play bingo every night, then fall asleep with the windows open listening to the waves), and to my best friend (who wanted a nanny so she could spend more time with her husband, and a coach and tutor for her children) so that they can see their dreams ARE attainable.
Thank you Scott for this gift.
