I really enjoyed reading this book! I am constantly looking for resources that will help me to be more aware of my financial situation, and goals. This book is nice because it is not overly complicated, or assume that the reader has previous personal finance knowledge. Its content is written with fun millennial slang, and is geared directly toward this group. I think that they can often need a great deal of new information in order to succeed in this area. I know I personally had a really big struggle handling my finances when I graduated from high school and moved onto college. I was then in charge of all of my spending, and being sure that I had a positive balance at the end of each month. I can tell you, i had some downfalls on my road to becoming independent and successful. The author of this book uses his personal history to really paint the story, and includes the ups and downs. The story is continued in parts throughout the whole book, which is pretty neat. There are a lot of invaluable tips and strategies that can prove to be very useful. Well Done! ~MamaMaisy
As soon as I read the title of this book, I just knew I was going to enjoy it. It’s written in a language that is totally relatable to a millennial/young adult like me. More importantly, it has some really useful information about credit and managing your income. Setting aside “personal fun money” IS important. Anyway, I really enjoyed this. It was the helpful book I needed in my life. ~L. Duff
