Ce que les auditeurs disent de Kicking Financial Ass
Don't let the title fool you. I'd say this book is for anyone under 40 and some people over 40. Most of the advice will benefit you as long as you're not close to retirement. There are a few sections that are slanted towards younger people, such as the seemingly long discussion of travel and how to get the most out of it. (I don't know anyone with a family who would stay in a hostel, or who could travel as much as this author suggests millennials should.) Oddly, in the many, many sections dealing with how to handle debt, student loans were not mentioned. The focus was solely on credit card debt, although car loans and mortgages were briefly mentioned. I found this odd because in the US at least student debt is the largest obstacle to wealth accumulation for a huge number of millennials. Heck, I'm much older than millennials and my student loans are still my biggest problem even now. Overall, this book gives solid advice and gives clear explanations about some very confusing topics, and would be beneficial to anyone who might be confused or overwhelmed about some aspect of their financial life. There were many suggestions that gave enough info to be immediately actionable given your particular circumstances. Other items I felt left out too much to be actionable, and would require someone to do more research/reading to take the author's advice.
I am not a millennial.
I was given this book for a free an honest review. I am not a millennial, I am planning to finish this book in the near future. it might have something that I can use or learn. but it was very clear at the beginning that their target are millennials.
