The short review
A basic personal finance book for teens to those in their mid-twenties. Hits many important topics, but doesn't delve too deeply into any one.
Well written, clear, concise and was easy, fun and effortless to read (high praise for a finance book!).

I would recommend this for teens trying to save money for university, or for university students with questions about personal finance and money management.

there was some useful information in it, but a lot of bad advice as well. For example, he recommends GICs for both RRSPs and RESPs.

This book wasn't all that I thought it would be. The title, to me anyways, suggested the book applied to those just finishing university. Rob Carrick covers a lot of pre-post secondary and afterwards when your trying to buy a car or house. I took this book out of the library hoping it would be advice on finances while in university and once the dreaded student loan repayment starts, but this is only covered by one chapter in the whole book.

This book should be a must read for young adults. Carrick does an excellent job at not blaming young adults of today but tells us how to fix the mistakes we've made and how to make better, more educated decisions in the future.

Carrick explains everything from credit cards and interest rates to mortgage and RRSPs.

A must read for everyone under 30.
