So, how does the generation that truly has it all take care of everyone's needs and still have something left at the end?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This is the rare financial book that's entertaining as well as informative. Whether helping individuals or couples to enumerate their personal finances, create a college fund or prepare for retirement, the Murray twins, money advisers on the Today Show, present basic advice in an easily digestible, often humorous way. According to these two financial paragons, saving for your future can be as simple as renting more movies and seeing fewer in the theater, driving cars longer and buying clothes that are less likely to go out of fashion. They also assure younger readers who are contemplating their golden years that they can achieve millionaire-status simply by saving around $60 a week, along with tips on preparing for involuntary retirement. Useful investing advice, including an in-depth description of the vagaries of money market options, round out this quick and lively must-read for financial novices.
