I would like to have seen more mentioned about using "good debt" to build wealth, but I also say the same about Dave Ramsey's books.
This is a book that should be required reading in every high school and college curriculum. I plan to make a practice of gifting copies as graduation presents at both the high school and college level.
- debt is bad don't use credits
- saving is good, so save
- don't waste money
- look at same examples to those ideas.
Personally I don't like this book, probably because all of its truths are obvious for me.
But it may be good for someone who know nothing about money.
If you know that credit is evil and saving is good than there is no reason for you to buy this book, otherwise you may benefit from it.
I'm not a big fan of books that give you general advice without specific examples so I was glad to see check lists and worksheets you can use to put her suggestions into place.
I am a fan out of squeezing the most out of every dollar so I enjoyed that chapter and picked up some good tips. However, I think my favorite thing about this book is that Barbara leads you towards creating habits and systems that make financially healthy decisions and actions more automatic. Sometimes we make personal finance more difficult than it needs to be and she's dead on with her advice about keeping it simple and creating habits that are easy to follow.
Even if you're not financially illiterate you can definitely pick up some good tips and financial habits from this book.
