This is a must read book for the millennials. The balance and simplicity of this book will make the reader want to think before they waste their hard earned money on something that will not add value to their future. Jason's life experience is amazing. I had a hard time putting down the book because of what Jason shared.

When I first heard the title, I was a little skeptical. Usually when I read books, I highlight one or two of the most profound sentences. With this book, I found myself highlighting in the preface. I wish that I was required to read this in high school, because the lessons that this book teaches is lacking in public education. It mixes an intriguing story of the author, Jason Vitug, with practical information to reducing debt and saving money. This book pays for itself by the money you save from tips included in this book. If you have credit card debt, or a lack of awareness of how credit works, this book is a must. Most of the information is presented in an elementary fashion that is easy to truly grasp. Do yourself, your family, and your credit score a favor by reading this book about financial wellness.
