"You mean to tell me you've been employed as a software engineer for five years and your net worth is $500?" These are not the words you want to hear from your mortgage banker when you're looking to borrow a large sum of money. Despite a well-paying job, the author had managed to spend everything he had earned in the five years after college. The meeting with the mortgage officer was his epiphany. He finally got serious about managing and investing his money. Now in his early 50s, the author is debt free, owns a house free and clear, and has built a retirement portfolio that will comfortably sustain him and his wife in the coming years. This book aims to help people in their 20s avoid the same financial mistakes. In a breezy, humorous, and conversational style, it describes a common-sense approach to spending, saving, investing, and managing your money to get rich slowly, but surely.
