"Prospering financially is more about mindset than mathematics. The Ten-Year Turnaround is a guide for moving from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset, from a fixed identity to a dynamic identity. This book will show you how those shifts will do more to release wealth than degrees, promotions, inheritance, luck or the lottery." - Dan Miller, New York Times bestselling author, 48 Days to the Work You Love
"If you're tired of being broke or just haven't attained the financial success you're looking for, The Ten-Year Turnaround is the book for you. While there are many good personal finance books that teach you how to manage your money better, The Ten-Year Turnaround actually teaches you how to create more economic value, increase your income over time and invest your money wisely for lifetime wealth."- Jaime Masters, Founder, Eventual Millionaire
"I found Matt's plan for achieving financial goals in The Ten-Year Turnaround extremely refreshing. While many authors would try to tell you that the time it takes to achieve financial success can be measured in minutes or a few hours a week, Matt tells you the way it is with a very concrete plan that is both realistic and achievable in terms of time and effort. So, while 10 years might seem like a long time, I think just about anyone would be extremely satisfied if they accomplished half of what Matt has been able to accomplish during that time. The Ten-Year Turnaround will give you the knowledge and plan that you need to achieve your financial goals." - Spencer Haws, Founder, Niche Pursuits
From the Author
While there's no such thing as "hidden secrets of the rich", I've learned a lot about wealth building over the decade. The truth is that you just need to work hard, practice focused learning, be persistent and invest wisely over along period of time if you want to achieve financial freedom. I have had a lot of people ask me how I've amassed so much wealth by the age of 30, so I have decided to put together The Ten-Year Turnaround to outline the strategies that I've used to build wealth and achieve personal financial freedom.
While your path toward financial independence will look different than mine, I truly believe that anyone can achieve financial freedom in ten years or less. The Ten-Year Turnaround will help you develop the game plan you need to start on a journey toward financial freedom, beginning today.

Even so, this would be a good read for most people who were never raised to live frugally, rather than satisfying every want the moment they *think* they have money (while they have or are accruing debt). I did find the detailed personal story of his own journey more inspiring than Ramsey's book that felt 50% ore "salesman-y". I think that the one thing he offers that is far better than Ramsey's book, is the idea to keep learning throughout life, as you never know how you may be able to use that knowledge in business. If you're totally new to the idea of smart money habits, pick this up and Ramsey's book. Both are pretty light reads and I can see where people might get quite inspired between the two.
While I do like the suggestion that one should not have college debt, I can tell you that in some places (like where I live) there are not enough simple jobs to keep a student going all 4 years unless they have some form of help from family. We've allowed both my niece and nephew to live with us rent free, only paying for all of their other expenses by working part time so they can pay for as much as they can. College costs are through the roof even at our state university, so they will still have some debt, even though they busted their humps and worked full time through the summers.
I'll also disagree that a degree outside of hard science is never going to earn one money, since most everyone in my family has done quite well financially with degrees in English! Often, it is about the courses you combine with the degree (e.g. pick up a science minor, add a lot of tech-laden authoring skills, etc.). I think most people start a degree with little direction or assuming that a haphazard course load based on not having a 8 am class will suffice, but you have to look at your own talents and think through to what you want to do in a broad sense. In my case, my husband's, and my sister it's been technical writing, suited to business training materials, user and safety manuals! Likewise, I know people who've taken on other degrees, but were able to combine their knack for other skills into careers. Others may pick up a trade (electricians, even body shop technicians) instead of college. It all depends on one's willingness to live within their means and plan well for the future. And really, if you have a kid who has no clue what they want to study, send them to work for at least a year and make them pay you rent and for *all* their living expense equal to the cost of living solo and see how fast they want to study something that will lead to a real career in one manner or another.
This might be a better fit for the 20-something I know who is struggling with their finances than Ramsey's book, but I'm still looking for a good fit that reads less like a sales pitch.
I think every high school senior should get this book as they start living their life because I promise this type of stuff is not taught in school unfortunately.
Mathew states he is a Christian and he provides Christian insights in the book. I like that as I am a Christian myself, but what I thought was brilliant is he allows people who aren't Christians the right to skip over those parts and he says that in the book.
I have been investing for some time and yes there are some things I would do differently, but I can't argue with the path he has laid out for that portion of the book.
It is a short read so just get the book and see for yourself.
Since I am not religious, and this book contains a few sections dedicated to Christians, I will say that this did not take anything away from the book. They were few and far between, and easy to skip.
So if I had to recommend this to someone, it would primarily be on the basis of needing the motivation to start working towards your goals in life. It is great for that.

Be prepared to work exceptionally hard over a long period of time, there is no magic pill that will get you there. The book offers recommendations but you'll have to do all the heavy lifting.
