Great advice

There was so much information packed into a single book, it was great! Some of the chapters didn't pertain to me, since I am luckily no longer in debt, however all the other chapters and personal stories really resonated with me.

Basic Lessons from Successful People

Where does How to Be a Financial Grownup rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed this audiobook, I enjoyed it more than Rich Bitch. It covers the same topics, but the audiobook was well laid out.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

What did you like best about this story?

You know the audiobook is going to be great when it begins with the ever successful Tony Robbins laying the roadwork. This audiobook breaks down the financial issues that we all face including how to save money and stay out of debt. It is a barebones roadmap for money. I think this is a great audiobook for those just graduating college and starting out their endeavors. As someone who regularly deals with young adults, I would mark this as a must listen.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

I appreciated and enjoyed that the author Bobbi Rebell read her own book. When an author narrates her own book, she is able to stress the important facts.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

A few stories stand out, but I really enjoyed how everyone's first sales pitch or important meeting does not go great and that experience builds success. Also, don't rely on anyone for your own success. Always be nice to everyone!

Any additional comments?

Even for those adults that think that money comes easy, it offers a bit of real estate investing advice that is explained for a layman from none other than the CEOof Zillow. I liked that this book did not feel antagonistic about money saving and requiring unlikely solutions.

I wish I were a "financial grownup"

What did you love best about How to Be a Financial Grownup?

I really liked the bits AFTER the advice from "high achievers", where she got specific with actionable items.

What other book might you compare How to Be a Financial Grownup to and why?

This reminds me a lot of my older sister lecturing me on learning how to do my own taxes ;)

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Bobbi Rebell's voice was kind of strange to me at first, but I got more used to it after a while. The other narrators were all very good, so that helped.

not for anyone living outside America

sort of just a mishmash of stories. some valid points for sure but a lot of the information is more American based and not general information for people that live in places besides America.
