Striking out on your own for the first time is exhilarating. But in a culture full of bad advice, predatory banks, and splurge-now-pay-later temptations, it can also be extremely dangerous - leading you to make financial decisions that could hurt you for years to come. Combine this with a slumped economy, mounds of student loans, and dubious examples from reality TV stars to politicians to your own parents, and it’s no wonder so many twenty-somethings are struggling.
Twenty-three-year-old Zac Bissonnette - the author of Debt-Free U - knows exactly what you’re going through. He demystifies the many traps young people fall victim to in their post-college years. He offers fresh insights on everything from job hunting to buying a car to saving for retirement that will give you a foundation for a secure, stable, and happy life.
In the process, he reveals why FICO scores are overrated, online job applications are a waste of time, car loans are for suckers, and credit-card rewards are a scam. With detours to discuss wine connoisseurs, Really Broke Housewives, and Lenny Dykstra, Zac shows you how to make better choices today so you can be richer, smarter (and better-looking!) for years to come.
"Are you there, Zac? It’s me, Chelsea. I loved your book. Plus, I’m only half-Jew so your financial wisdom really balanced out my Mormon side." (Chelsea Handler)
"Our four daughters learned 'Waste not, want not' before they knew their ABCs, but Zac Bissonnette says it better and more credibly than a mere father could. His enjoyable romp through the basics of debt-free personal finance will be in their next Christmas stockings." (Mitch Daniels, Governor of Indiana)
"Though only a third of 2012 has passed, Zac Bissonnette is already a strong contender for the cheekiest author of the year award." (The New York Times)

Nothing New Here
No. This is no new information combined with a little common sense.
He ought to have come up with an original thought for himself.
Has some useful statistics, that is about all.
Somebody who has NOT read:
-Richest man in babylon
-Total Money Makeover
-4 hour work week
-Rich Dad Poor Dad
-Millionaire Next Door
Or just about any other financial self help book. This offered little in the form of useful information or further insight.
I wouldn't recommend this to somebody who has read other financial self help books, if you haven't read others and you don't intend to, give it a try, it has some useful, though, unoriginal information.
