    Might lower the divorce rate ?

    My wife and I read and have tried to follow the advice in this entertaining and useful book. (We've read a lot of books on money management, but we think this one has the most practical ideas). We even had each of our teenage children read it through (with a small bribe!) ¿it was a good introduction to the real world of money they could understand. They were drawn more to the cartoons and quotes, and the stories of doctors and school teachers and their money problems.... Ben Franklin happens to be one of our heroes and we found that this book is based on the principles he followed, enabling him to retire when he was only 42. We especially appreciated what they call the ¿Spending Window.' It seems to have changed the way we look at our money and has solved a few disagreements on what to buy next. That was refreshing. The book doesn¿t include specific advice on what to buy¿or where to invest; it just teaches the foundational principles of saving, spending and investing.... We gave it to a few newly-married couples, but have only heard back from one of them so far, who also said they really liked it and hoped to implement some of its ideas.
