This is a good book for people in their twenties or even thirties who didn't get the basics, either because their parents didn't teach them or because they got in trouble early with credit card debt, or whatever reason.
I think the advice is pretty sound.
When we were recently at a department store and checking out, the clerk asked me if I would like to apply for their store credit card and receive a certain percentage off my purchases for the day. I declined the offer, as I had completed the chapter about having only one credit card to be paid off monthly (no extra spending for me) and knowing the credit inquiry might reduce my credit score. None of the reasons for getting the new credit card was worth it and I was able to explain to my 11 year old why we were not taking advantage of this "opportunity." The book allows for good solid every day discussions and lessons. I highly recommend this book for everyone and a great gift as well.
