What I Liked

In the crowded world of personal finance books, this one has a unique voice and perspective on doing the basics of personal finance.

I appreciated his perspective of “yes, we live in America; yes, that presents major challenges and major opportunities; yes, we should strive to improve America over the long term…but in the meantime, let’s deal with how things are right now in your life, which you have more control over than you might think.

It’s a very practical book – much in line with Benjamin Franklin and Poor Richard’s Alamanac. I like that.

What I Did Not Like

It’s independently published, so the editing is a little rough around the edges.
