This was the only book in our Summer Reading Party, I hadn’t read before I plopped it on the list. I was a little nervous. Erin Lowry, the author, runs a great blog. She is funny, witty and has a clever way of taking money topics from stressful to entertaining: dare I say interesting and fun? Well, my nervousness didn’t last long. I read the first chapter, set the book down and ordered a copy for my little sister!
Hidden behind short personal examples, witty banter and cultural references is a rock solid system to organize and master all areas of personal finance. The sheer amount of step-by-step practical, absolute necessary information amazed me.
With humor and an easy writing style, Lowry tackles every financial topic that we have to learn how to navigate. I ought to order a small stack and just pass them out to everyone who needs a top to bottom advice to master all areas of their finances.
Of all the books in our summer reading party, this is the only one that will cover every area of personal finance in detail.
Broke Millennial is the book I wish I could have read 15 years ago. Tailored to the exact needs of our generation, it would have saved me years of struggling to figure this stuff out on my own. Now if only Erin could jump ahead of me another 15 years and write her next book!
This book is a full financial education. Order 10 copies and give them away. Best $100 donation you could make for the Millennials in your life.
