I’ll be giving away this great book, Enjoy Your Money! How To Make It, Save It, Invest It and Give It Away, which has received multiple awards. I think you’ll not only find it a great read, but also a great gift for recent graduated or newlyweds. It would also make excellent summer reading.
Here are some reasons that I especially recommend this book to college students and others in my age group.
1. A film producer called it “the money book for people who hate money books.” Why? Because it’s written in an entertaining story form. Four high school seniors meet in “In School Suspension,” thinking they have nothing in common. But they do. Their parents are hopeless with their money and they desperately want to do better. So they start meeting each week with an eccentric teacher for rollicking discussions of successful money management.
2. It contains a lot of practical money wisdom. Don’t think that being easy to read implies that it’s shallow. It’s not. An accounting professor called it “a fast, fun read with practical and often remarkable insights.”
3. I love the real people stories. Reading about people like Warren Buffett, Thomas Jefferson, clothes washer Oseola McCartey, football coach Joe Gibbs, and even the manager of Led Zeppelin speaks to me. It’s easier to remember life lessons when you see them lived out in interesting people.
4. It’s not the same old stuff that you hear over and over. When Miller writes a chapter about growing in wisdom, he takes principles from the life of Sam Walton, showing the unique and fascinating ways that he kept learning throughout his life.
I like the way a former HomeBanc executive recommended the book:
Had I read this book in my 20’s, I’d be financially independent today. It’s a remarkable blend of fabulous research with clear and lively writing. You’d pay an expert quite a sum for this caliber of counsel. That’s why I say that the best investment you make this year just might be this book. Your second best investment will be the copies you buy for your children. — Dr. Dwight “Ike” Reighard, former Executive Vice President, HomeBanc .
