Subpar.

" use a condom" , " don't go to a financial planner ", " download a template of your will from the internet" and other asinine gems .

As someone who works with " Old money" for living , I would not recommend this book .

Good for those starting out or starting over

This book offers a cursory overview of certain quintessentially American values that act as a laudable strategy for dealing with challenges in 21st century life. It is not by any means comprehensive, and should not be expected to be so. It is also not a "get-rich-quick" book, or even a "get-rich-slowly" book. It is a book that educates one on the basics of how to make those decisions that will lead to a manageable, comfortable, and enjoyable life; as well as how to avoid those decisions that would lead to the opposite. There were some minor problems in narration, but by the time one is a quarter of the way through the audiobook, she will be thoroughly invested in the remaining three quarters.

Funny, precise and inspiring!

The most motivating (in saving money) book! Reevaluated my values. No water. Ironic and humorous.

fresh start

the new definition of OMG old money guy/gal.. education, manners, conservative spending and clothing, thought out travel plans, second hand cars, discretion/privacy, carefully chosen media exposure, long term approach, healthy living, Old Money ubiquitous with long term money I think, I thought this book was written perhaps one hundred years ago it was actually published in 2014. "Tattoos? This book is not for you" :) thank you dear brother for recommending this one and Byron Tully for sharing your thoughts. challenging at times because reminded me of poor decisions I'd made at times.
