Clark Howard's Living Large for the Long Haul: Consumer-tested Ways to Overhaul Your Finances, Increase Your Savings, and Get Your Life Back on Trackby Clark Howard, Mark Meltzer, Theo Thimou, Pete Larkin (Narrated by)
Americans from all walks of life are still feeling the roller-coaster effects of the Great Recession. For many, home values are still too low and unemployment is still too high. Others have prospered despite the ups and downs. In Clark Howard's Living Large for the Long Haul, the renowned broadcaster examines our new paradigm through the eyes of those whose financial portfolios have beaten the odds, and those whose economic situation has gone off course. Through these fascinating personal accounts, listeners will uncover amazing opportunities and smart decisions, finding advantages in bleak times for lasting payoffs in the long run.
Howard (Living Large in Lean Times) and coauthors Mark Meltzer and Theo Thimou share the stories of 50 people who have amassed significant savings or extricated themselves from financial hardship as they extol the virtues of paying down debt, adopting a cash-only business model, limiting credit card use, living below one's means, and embracing frugality. Pete Larkin's rich voice handles female voices as easily as those of males. VERDICT Offering commonsense advice similar to that found in Suze Orman's and the "Rich Dad" titles, this book will be of interest to those looking for straightforward answers to everyday financial issues.—Laurie Selwyn, formerly with Grayson Cty.
