Review: The Breakfast Club for 40-Somethings by Vanessa Stoykov

This was definitely a different approach to a personal finance book that I’ve read, and I liked the motivation behind and the advice given in it. It might’ve been a little too lengthy in the story construction to blend with the financial advice, but I think Vanessa Stoykov had a great approach to giving financial advice in the form of showcasing a group of people coming to terms with their money stories. Ultimately it frames the experiences of six adults seeking out help to tackle their particular issues – from one person changing their life career to dealing with the sickness of a loved one, to financing for their own future retirement, among other matters – in narrative form. I didn’t get as much in the way of financial information as I was hoping for in comparison to other personal finance guides, but I appreciated the read for what it offered, and the audiobook narration was very well done. Overall, it’s one I’m glad that I have in my financial library, though I wouldn’t use it as a primary resource as much as one to accompany other guides I have in my library.

Overall score: 3/5 stars.
