Worth the listen if your just starting to develop your personal money habits. Insights that were new to me included overpaying the IRS, mailing in rebates, exact %'s of salary increases to save, and leveraging your last month's rent. Provided insight on making big purchases and repetition is very minimal. Enjoyed hearing how little decisions add up to lots of savings.
A little outdated which made some of the tips irrelevant such as the author's opinions on credit cards. Narration was a little slow and stiff, had to speed it up.
Tip #92 was by far the lamest piece of advice

Good for super beginners. I am just 26 years old and knew about 80% of the things he discussed. Most of this is just common sense.

What about Dean Sluyter’s performance did you like?
The voice was emphatic when needed and agreeable to listen to.
Any additional comments?
This book is packed with basic, easy-to-follow but really useful advice regarding managing your money. Even thought it is aimed for young adults, I can tell I know plenty of mature people who don't know or don't follow many of these principles – and they're in quite significant financial trouble.
If you've never been very good with money or if you see yourself in a bad money situation that you would like to improve but don't really know where to start, this is definitely a good place. The only negative (so to speak) about the book is that some of the nippets of advice are not that relevant outside the US, but they're a small number.
