While I’m sure everyone advocates a different approach to learning about money, I think Chelsea Fagan does an excellent job at presenting a well-rounded explanation and approach to money in general.
If you are looking for a great foundation for financial literacy, or are simply looking to gain a fresh and easy to understand perspective on your life, this book will not disappoint!
This book was recently published in January of this year and it has already gained prominence as a superb resource that is sure to make you “hungry” for more.
Let me be frank here, this is a “Beginner’s book (guide)”, and most will attest to this. It is a guidebook on several subjects, all based around the idea that our money and success financially is tied with how we do other things. (E.g. What food we buy, what we wear, etc.)
An interesting concept to be sure, but not unappreciated in this day and age. I for one completely agree with the statement that success financially is very much tied to our other habits in life.
Being less of a centered study, Chelsea hopes to begin widening the mind of the reader, and help them begin seeing how everything in their lives as important and directly influencing their success, especially when bad eating and spending habits are involved.
What most people don’t realize is that financial success is a practice, just like everything, and most everything I am doing influences my present and future.
A generalized approach to financial stability, especially for those in debt, or stuck in bad money habits.
How This Book Will Help You
I believe this book will help people on several levels, and it will be most helpful to people who really haven’t done anything to better themselves financially at all.
That being said, this book is not one to pass up even if you are experienced managing money or making money for that matter; we all need to improve one way or another.
I think this book will open your eyes to the reality of why you may be failing financially or struggling to achieve the success you want.
Being more of a broad overview or introduction into this arena, I think this book will give people a strong foundation to go on and start improving themselves one area at a time.
I’d like to say that this book is “necessary” for your financial success, but that just isn’t true. No book in existence is absolutely necessary to succeed in life.
Amazon has this book at a good rating, and most people found the information helpful. Some even went as far as to give it to entire groups who were learning about financial literacy.
People obviously didn’t read the description on this book before buying and complained about this very thing, not realizing how basic the information was, and obviously not taking the principles to heart, hence the negative ratings.
Some have criticized the author for her inexperience on some topics, but it is clear that Chelsea is well versed in solid financial principles and life goals; able to present a good book all around.
Here are some reviews:
Writer, blogger, and speaker, Chelsea Fagan is certainly an interesting author.
Chelsea is less off a role model compared to teachers like Robert Kiyosaki or T. Harv Eker, and more of a writer with a heart for learning and helping people.
She gives easy to understand ideas and instruction, with a very lax way of communicating. It is for this reason that I think that this book is perfect for the beginner. I can think of few books that would suite a newcomer to the financial game like this one.
Average Amazon Customer Rating
This is a stellar beginner book full of humor and practical advice. This seem very applicable for some of my younger friends who have a harder time relating to books from financial teachers like Robert Kiyosaki. I recommend this one!
I think most of you can tell where I stand on a book like this, I really and sincerely think that this book will make a lasting impact on your life.
I believe you should buy this book. Mostly because I think it presents a perspective and knowledge that is very uncommon today. Seriously, this is one of the first times I have ever heard of someone presenting information like; at least in such an understandable way.
I have reviewed many books, most of which relate to the intermediate to the advanced learner.
However, there are those times I will read a book, and the information may not be necessarily new or original. But the perspective or the presentation gives me new ideas on how to use said information; and that is what counts!
I don’t advocate bad buys and I wouldn’t promote something that I didn’t believe was worth your time and money. This book is an excellent addition to any library, and I know it’s value will surprise you! Get it now on Amazon!
