This is a difficult book to rate. Informationally, it should get a 5. For ease of understanding, it should get a 5. But as a "good read," well, much of the first half read like an annoying infomercial and that really bugged. I also don't like phrases like "get rich."

So, it's weird that I read this book. I did so at the suggestion of a friend, otherwise I never would have given it a thought. (Thank you, Katrina!) I began skeptically, but this ended up being the very book I needed to read, for me and for my marriage. Dear Phil has been patiently waiting 15-1/2 years for me to have any inkling about finances and planning. Nothing in this book was new to him, but it was a complete revelation to me. Knowing what I now know, I am amazed that Phil has stayed married to me this long!!!!! What a real man.

This is going to be required high school reading for graduation from our homeschool. I truly wish I had understood all of this as a college student. Thankfully, Phil DID understand it as a college student and he's quietly tried to do what he could without me being "on board." Now life should get better for him.
