Are you tied to a nine-to-five workweek? Would you like to “retire” from wage-paying work within 10 years? Are you in your 20s or 30s and would like to be financially free - the sort of free that ensures you spend the best part of your day and week, and the best years of your life, doing what you want? Building wealth is always possible, even while working full-time, earning a median income, and making up for a negative net worth. Set for Life gives young professionals the fiscal confidence they need to conquer financial goals early in life.

This book is a fantastic book for those who are about to graduate college (high school) or who have recently graduated college. For those who are closer to middle age, this is still a great book because it's not too late to get started. Most people probably haven't even thought of things that are in this book.

Consider this book as a great graduation gift for college students or high school students. I think it should be mandatory reading for high school students.

The story was great about Josh's learning process. However, I was looking for more specific techniques.

If you are more interested in philosophy than specific techniques, this is worth 5 stars.

This audio version has to be better than the written word! Jen does a great job of providing the emphasis that is necessary to really wow the listener.

If you have been reading Self Help books for a long time, plenty of stuff that she covers is in other books; however, she does a great job of piecing it together in a manner that can be consumed readily and satisfyingly.

Sowell provides an outstanding explanation of how economies function. What is particularly exceptional is that he does so using clear, simple language that anyone can understand. This should be required reading for all students...and members of society. Arming the populace with a better understanding of economics will better protect them from misleading politicians (from both sides of the aisle) and others who would influence our decisions.
