Disclaimers: First off, I'm not qualified in any capacity to be giving anybody financial advice, but as far as I can tell this book offers realistic and viable solutions to this problem. Secondly, I received a copy of this for review from the authors in exchange for my honest opinion. Third, I used to do book tours for Tristi Pinkston, but that is as far as our relationship extended.
My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: This book is easy to understand, entertaining, informative, and touching. The fact that I'm saying this about a book on finance is actually quite remarkable.
The book talks about Tristi Pinkston and her husband's financial struggles and offers real solutions to their problems. However, I feel like the concepts in this book could help almost anybody who reads it.
I am not close to retirement and as I am only in college, debt is not really an issue for me yet. However, I know it is a serious problem and one that many people suffer from. Even I in my current situation, found this book helpful and useful. I jotted down a few ideas of what I can do now to prepare for my future despite whatever it brings.
This book is definitely one I recommend to anybody, especially any female whether they are worried about finance or not. It's written in a way that's entertaining and informative...it's a book that will help people start stepping in the right direction financially plus the book is simply an enjoyable read because it reads like a novel and is in prose from. This novel doesn't read like a textbook at all, but rather was much like reading a typical fiction book. Except the neat thing is that this book isn't fiction and could actually help you in your real life.
In Summary: The most compelling, entertaining, informative, and realistic book on finances that I've ever read. Definitely recommend to anybody whether they think they should be worried about their finances or not.
The Wrap-up: Definitely worth checking out. Plus if you check this out now, you can get a free copy by following this link. To be honest, I thought this would be a dry boring book that I would have to slave through. It was the exact opposite as I've already mentioned it was a compelling read that was really informative. I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
