...and not pandemic related, although the author does throw in the occasional reference to COVID to justify the title hype.
There are a lot of books being put on the market that really have nothing to do with COVID help, but the author is taking advantage of fearful mindset to get sales. Not a very good moralistic tactic, but potentially valuable to the author financially.
As for the content of this book, it really is nothing new. The information was succinct and well put together and would definitely be useful for younger, inexperienced individuals just learning to manage their money.
There was one paragraph that I didn't quite get, that seemed 1) thrown in and 2) insulting. A gloss-over that the author quickly moved on from. He was writing on uncertainties, worries, etc. and how it can affect our overall health, then wrote:
"Instead focus on what you can change. You have a vote, so use it when election day rolls around. Don't just consider this for the big national elections, but local ones too. You decide how much you want to save and what you want to spend, unless you're at or below the poverty line. You know what your skill are, and you should learn how to leverage them."
Three totally unconnected, unrelated "changes" smashed together in one paragraph. Instead of surreptitiously making a political statement, or presuming that poverty-level individuals can't save or decide what to spend their money on, his idea of "changing" things in your life to lessen stress should have been better thought out.
Again, overall, it was a decently-written text with a lot of good information for novice spenders.
