Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Robertson, primarily known as a religious leader, puts on his businessman's hat to dispense advice about financial management. He has been successful in worldly matters, starting the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) and growing the relief agency Operation Blessing into a worldwide relief and development agency. That said, he hasn't made his name as a financial guru, and this is a financial management 101 kind of book. There's Christian content, too-tithing, the charitable giving of 10% of income, is mentioned early on as a necessity. Financial education is a perennial need that is particularly pressing now, and this book contains helpful information, including a glossary of terms. It lacks unique content, but will likely sell to CBN and 700 Club viewers and any other loyalists. (May 27

    Great sound advice

    I like Pat's book, Right on the Money, a lot. I appreciate how he explains how financial tools work and he provides analysis and recommendations that are based on education and experience. Because he has no skin in the game, his advice is trustworthy. Many of the suggestions were ones that I already had taken but it was quite useful to get more understanding as to why they were the best decision.
    I recommend this book to all my adult children and believe that it would benefit everyone to understand what they should be doing to be right on the money!
