I just graduated with my BSB in Biology from an accredited public research four year university last year. This book has helped me prepare for my life and to pursue my purpose through healthy finances dramatically for the better. I recommend this book to those who are novices in personal finances like me to take time to study and read this gem, and to become financially free and enjoy life anew.
