Similar to how Susan Cain’s Quiet revolutionized the way the world views introversion, this deeply insightful book promises to revolutionize the way we all view another frequently misunderstood subject: the field of financial planning. Howard offers an examination of a topic that takes up much of our time—money—and somehow manages to do so in such a fresh, charming, and inviting manner that even the most finance-phobic out there will find themselves won over. Overflowing with inspiring quotes and illuminating anecdotes, this is a book for anyone seeking clarity regarding their personal finances—that is to say, everyone.
