I love a good giveaway. Due to the increasing popularity of this blog (thank you Yakezie), readers of Evolution Of Wealth will have an opportunity to win a personal finance book titled, Enjoy Your Money! How to Make It, Save It, Invest It and Give It. Below is a brief write up about the book and at the bottom of this post I will let you know how to enter. I will be running this giveaway for the next week so you must get your entries in by midnight eastern time next Wednesday, April 28th.
Book Giveaway: Enjoy Your Money! How to Make It, Save It, Invest It and Give It
By J. Steve Miller
A movie producer called this award-winning book “the money book for people who hate money books.” Why? Because although it’s full of practical wisdom and well-documented with authoritative sources, it’s written in an entertaining story form.
Enjoy Your Money! goes way beyond “the same old stuff,” by learning from real people who either succeeded or failed with their money. Discover how Warren Buffett accumulated $47,000 (in today’s money, adjusted for inflation) by the time he graduated from high school, working ordinary jobs that anyone could do. Find how Oseola McCarty retired with over a quarter of a million dollars after spending her life washing clothes in boiling water over a fire. You’ll encounter Mark Twain, Thomas Jefferson, coach Joe Gibbs, Led Zeppelin and a host of other interesting folks.
Although it targets 18-30 year-olds, making it an ideal graduation gift, reviews from older folks show that it’s got a universal appeal. As Ike Reighard, former Executive Vice President of HomeBanc said,
“Had I read this book in my 20’s, I’d be financially independent today. It’s a remarkable blend of fabulous research with clear and lively writing. You’d pay an expert quite a sum for this caliber of counsel. That’s why I say that the best investment you make this year just might be this book. Your second best investment will be the copies you buy for your children.“
