Anyone who wants to begin to track and get a handle of their personal finances should read this book and follow its advice. This book is just the beginning, though, and further reading will be necessary. Lots of references are provided at the end of the book.
This book gives you practical advice and choices. It presents their information in a simple fashion with multiple examples of choices that can be made. The author doesn't make you feel stupid for your past choices but you feel that you have choices that you can make now that can greatly impact your financial future. You really stop and think about what the author is saying. and how you can apply it to your future financial decision. i realized many little "dumb" money mistakes that I have made. I used to spend $5-$10 on lunch 5 days a week. Total for the month is $100-$200 just on lunch alone. By making my lunch like I do now I am saving money, time, and frustration at lunch. I also can save $50-$100 that can be used in a more useful way...like savings that I never seemed to have at the end of the month. I mean i meant well but my savings account balance always stayed the same, and my investment account didnt exist
Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for honest and unbiased review.
As the title promises, this is a simple (but not condescending) step-by-step plan to change the way you interact with money. The writer dispenses a little tough love, reminding the reader that nothing changes if nothing changes, and then following up with concise and clear information that won’t make your head hurt.
The writer has a light touch without getting whimsical—the chapter on bad debt is called “Borrowing Trouble”—but there are serious solutions here for serious problems. The good news is that the problems HAVE solutions and after finishing the book, the reader will feel heartened. “It’s never too late to start caring out a financial future,” is good news to people who are afraid that their financial future is working decades past retirement or housing their worldly goods in a shopping cart.
You’ve got to start somewhere when it comes to managing your money, and reading this book is a great first step.
I received this book for review purposes, however all opinions are always my own.
I received a copy of this book for free to review, but my opinion is very much my own.
