One of the best known personal finance magazines and websites, Kiplinger, recently named Life After School Explained as one of the “Five Great Money Books for Young Adults.”
Read their review:
If you’re clueless and overwhelmed by what lies in store after you untie yourself from Mom and Dad’s purse strings, this is a good book to get your feet wet. It’s short and humorous and doesn’t weigh you down with a lot of confusing terminology.
I read it cover to cover in about two hours and actually understood what it said — without my eyes glazing over once. It’s sprinkled with witty anecdotes, pop culture references and comic strips to keep the mood light, even though it discusses such heavy-weight topics as choosing a health insurance plan, filling out tax forms and investing your money. It also covers lighter-yet-important subjects, such as how to avoid looking stupid at a business meal, what to wear on your first day of work and what to look for in a good apartment.
Life After School Explained is written by a team of young professionals who draw largely from their personal experiences in the real world. Its focus is for those who don’t know anything about living on their own, which, whether we want to admit it or not, is probably most of us. It’s basic, straight forward and a cinch to understand.
Thanks for the kind words, Kiplinger!
