If anyone needed convincing that a person is better off having a solid understanding of their own finances and preparing to care for their own future, the financial downturn of the past five years should have underscored that need in bright glittering colors. Face it, you need to develop an approach to your working life and retirement more than you need to master your skill at providing yourself with entertainment. In fact one of the points of this book is that people spend more than twenty hours per week in front of their TV and asks how much time you think the average person spends each week on their personal finances and planning for the future. What do you think? Do TV and other entertainment win in your life? Don't worry, you can fix it by changing the course of your life today. And this book can really help you.

This book is not a fluffy self-help tome trying to make a few bucks teaching you a couple of simple tricks. This is a college text that asks you to think, plan, develop skills, and think seriously about your life. However, even though it is a serious book, it is not heavy or dry in any way. I found it to be energizing and exciting because it empowers you to take control of your life now and make a successful plan for your future (if you have the will and discipline to execute it). - By Craig Matteson
