While this book technically covers us in Generation X, it doesn't really speak to responsible 30-somethings. I don't consider putting off the purchase of an Ipod to be a fiscally sound decision to congratulate. In order to be really helpful for current readers, it should have lectured much more heavily on extreme expense cutting and savings, instead of justifying why a cell phone, blackberry and new laptop are essentials.

Would be useful for some one just moving out of their parents house and starting out on their own. It's not for people in their late 20's or gen x'ers, although it appears to be marketed towards them.
