I loved this book! It was hilarious, exciting and I especially loved the chapter on consumer responsibility.

This book really spells out finances in a way that any normal young person can understand. I was orginally hesitant to read a book about finances, but after I got started I realized that this book is different from all the rest. The author provides funny stories from his life to help explain to the reader complex financial ideas. I learned how to save money, and as a young person in this economy, that's invaluable!
