This is the easiest book to read about managing one's personal financial affairs, and the best book I can recommend. After two degrees, I still haven't read any book or magazine that has had more impact on my personal financial situation. If one truly lives by the principles listed, they will have a successful financial future. I've given away many of these books for weddings, graduations, and personal gifts - It is worth more than any other financial gift one can give. It teaches people to be self reliant, even if their present situation seems financially hopeless. There is a solution.
READ IT and you too can totally debt-free and well on the way to becomming wealthy. In the past I've tried to teach friends who are really struggling financially how to get things under control. What I've found is that I can't possibly say it better or in a more compelling way than George S. Clason does in this superb book.
Buy it, read it, and put it next to your bible and dictionary. Schools should be required to give a copy out with the cap and gowns!
This is a great book for people in financial dumps, this is the best financial advice you'll ever get.
