Short and sweet review for this: it’s not a terrible book considering it does have a few tips that are helpful for financial management, but most of it is not worth the cost of buying the book. I’m very glad that borrowed it from the library. I felt like this book was mostly product placement (for Equifax’s DebtWise program), self-positioning for the author’s other books (which probably had the meat and potatoes that this book lacked – this was my first read from the author), and testimonials. Not very much about managing personal finances, which was the reason I picked up the book in the first place. I think I may try one of the author’s other books, but this is one I would say skip if you want a comprehensive guide or reference to refer back to on the topic.
Overall score: 1.5/5 stars.
