Do you speak money? You should. It is the world's most important language. It's spoken everywhere. Speaking - or at least understanding - this language allows you to follow the real conversations in politics, business, and at work. Understanding money and speaking the language fluently is critical to preparing for a comfortable retirement, building a small business, or planning for college and a career for your children.

Against a drumbeat of hopelessness about too much student debt and too few jobs requiring a college degree, Smart Is the New Rich: Money Guide for Millennials is a realistic and optimistic road map for millennials to save more, navigate their careers, invest in the stock market, and pay their student loans all at the same time.
Author and CNN veteran money correspondent Christine Romans believes we should live by three qualifiers: living within our means, living with less debt, and being less vulnerable. While some may say this is old-fashioned, today it's hard to argue with Romans' view. Smart is the New Rich explores how adopting a new approach to money can lead to a healthier financial lifestyle. Each chapter opens with a question about money to begin the conversation about earning, saving, spending, growing, and protecting your money.
