Thanks for the review. The book sounds helpful but I don't read non fiction so will pass reading this.

What a great resource to demystify such a big life decision. I was thinking that this should be in career counselors offices in highschool and then you mentioned it. Great job on this detailed review.

I believe that teenagers are overloaded with information nowadays. This book could be very helpful as it is very well organised and easy to follow. It's definetely not for me, but I might recommend it due to your detailed review.Thank you.

Thank you for your review. As you mentioned, this does sound like a book that would be good in high schools or career centers.
Based on your description, it actually sounds like something schools should consider investing in and incorporate into curricula that helps prepare students for life in general.

This would be perfect mostly for people getting ready for college. I'm pretty much almost done with college, however, the part about credit, decreasing debt, and saving money for retirement might be useful for me. Nice review.
Just reading... :techie-studyingbrown: :techie-studyinggray:

This is an educational book on success and a definite path into adulthood. I rated the book 2 out of 4 stars. The onlinebookclub review of the book was written masterfully and highlighted the best the book had to offer. Congrats on being the BOTD.

It seems this book would be a good tool for youngsters to seriously plan their future. Debt-free is definitely a come-on. Retirement may be an unrelatable topic for the carefree young, but it's never too early to plant that seed of interest.

Thanks for the detailed review! It seems to be a very useful book especially for high school students preparing for college. However, I am way past college age hence, I am not the target audience.

I think this book has been BOTD in the past, but it sounds like a good book for college bound kids. Based on the review, it sounds like it focuses on various stages of the college prep process and would be very helpful.
