Description

Why do high schools and colleges require students to take courses in English, math and science, yet have absolutely no requirements for students to learn about personal money management? Why Didn't They Teach Me This in School? 99 Personal Money Management Lessons to Live By was initially developed by the author to pass on to his five children as they entered adulthood. As it developed, the author realized that personal money management skills were rarely taught in high schools, colleges, and even in MBA programs.

Unfortunately, books on the subject tend to be complicated and lengthy. This book includes eight important lessons focusing on 99 principles that will quickly and memorably enhance any individual's money management acumen. Unlike many of the personal money management books out there, this book is a quick, easily digested listen that focuses more on the qualitative side than the quantitative side of personal money management.

These principles are not from a text book. Rather, they are practical principles learned by the author as he navigated through his financial life. Many are unorthodox in order to be memorable and provoke deeper thought by the listener. Not only an excellent graduation gift for high school and college students but also a great book for any adult!

Good for us "clueless" people

I'm 27 years old with a history of bad money decisions. I've recently started to get my head above water and this book gave me tips that I find relevant and will use today. I just wish I got this earlier in life.

Good Starting Point but a Little Outdated

Worth the listen if your just starting to develop your personal money habits. Insights that were new to me included overpaying the IRS, mailing in rebates, exact %'s of salary increases to save, and leveraging your last month's rent. Provided insight on making big purchases and repetition is very minimal. Enjoyed hearing how little decisions add up to lots of savings.

A little outdated which made some of the tips irrelevant such as the author's opinions on credit cards. Narration was a little slow and stiff, had to speed it up.

Tip #92 was by far the lamest piece of advice

Common Sense

Good for super beginners. I am just 26 years old and knew about 80% of the things he discussed. Most of this is just common sense.

Good Info

I enjoyed the book, was simple pointers to be successful in gaining your financial independence. I didn't agree with every recommendation but we all have opinions & experiences that one size doesn't fit all. I would say it is worth it to listen & sees what applies to you .

some useful tips and some not

this was an ok listen, I feel like it is definitely geared toward a certain type of money person and not for the overall spender. All in all though had a lot of helpful tips.

Easy to understand and practical. A must read for clueless teens / ‘adult’ who are starting their adult life
