Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"While there are a handful of books out there offering advice to those who have graduated into the Great Recession, so far this one is my favorite. The author was very thorough in presenting a number of different opportunities beyond simply 'getting a job.' In other words, she makes it very easy to take action." --20 Something Budget
