Review: What School Never Taught Me About Money by Angelia Kinston

Money – we all want it and need it and work hard to obtain it. Yet, many people have trouble managing it effectively. Let’s face it, if everyone were good at it, everyone would be retired living on an island. All individuals have challenges when it comes to money and its management.

Young adults are taught many things in school, but simple home economics concepts like creating a spending plan and tracking expenses are often overlooked.

Not so young adults get caught up when life happens and are sometimes forced to make hard and bad decisions that threaten or ruin their financial health and stability.

Without a plan, it’s nearly impossible to meet the savings goals individuals and families need to reach their financial freedom and enjoy life.

Whether you are 15 or 50, this book will get you started into personal money management; breakdown saving, spending, credit and investment; get you on a fiscally responsible track; clarify the sometimes confusing financial jargon and help you succeed and get the financial freedom that we all dream about.

Received for review

This slim volume might be overlooked by those used to giant tomes on personal finance but it is just what you need to present the basics of budgeting, saving, and investing without any unnecessary complicated phrasing or examples.

The author does a very good job of presenting the information in a clear, concise manner that is easy to read and assimilate. She reiterates ideas that we have probably all heard but may not actually implement in a way that is calm and encouraging.

Overall, this is an excellent read whether you are new to budgeting and saving game or an old pro who needs a refresher course. Everyone who reads this should be able to take away at least a few pieces of valuable information that will help improve their financial lives. I certainly highly recommend it.
