It's very good for everyone who want to know more about money but is overwhelmed by financial jargon.
I have acquired all the info in the book over about 30 years of
figuring things out, mostly after the fact! Only recently I calculated the
amount we pay in stock trades etc. within one of our SEP IRA's - luckily that
amount seemed fair based on the gains and recommendations we have received.
The part on staying in for the long run and getting in early are so
important to every young person.
I would like every high school senior to have this be
required reading! So hard to learn to delay rewards...but it is clear the
government is less and less likely to be there for future generations long
lives and long retirements, let alone their health care costs!

About a dozen steps above a Dick and Jane story but written with great clarity on sometimes difficult subjects.
The author wisely cools down hot financial topics in Someday Is Not a Plan by letting the reader comfortably sip his/her way through the book. The conversations between the fictional uncle and nephew are engaging, plausible, relevant, practical and inspiring. Must admit the uncle gets a little too opinionated for my taste about the short comings of financial advisors (Guess I've had better luck?!). I can hardly wait to give copies to my college kids!
