Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

Unlike many personal finance books, How to Manage Your Money When You Don't Have Any was specifically written for Americans who struggle to make it on a monthly basis. It provides a respectful, no-nonsense look at the difficult realities of our modern economy along with an easy-to-follow path toward better financial stability that will give hope to even the most financially strapped households.

Would you listen to How to Manage Your Money When You Don’t Have Any again? Why?

Absolutely, and I intend to. The books ideas are very simple in concept but very deep in practice. You need to use this book as a tool for the everyday man finances. If you have some sort of inheritance and you dont live paycheck to paycheck....skip this book and go learn how to invest your money. If you just want to survive without being a slave to your bi-weekly check...keep on reading.

What did you like best about this story?

Every chapter applied to a situation in my life.

Have you listened to any of Neil Hellegers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, so I cannot comment.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from How to Manage Your Money When You Don’t Have Any?

Already created a budget...its already eye opening.

Any additional comments?

Like I said up there....dont buy this if you are upper middle class. I wish I had read this book when I was a junior in highschool instead of at 29.

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

Having watched the movies I thought it would be fair to read the books to get the real story. Heard a few differences here and there but overall much better.

The only gripe I have with the performance is the voices. Hermione sounds like a scared ghost and they just don't really link up with the story.
