Is it just me???

November 27th, 2012 at 07:57 pm

Today while I was at work, I downloaded a personal finance book to my Kindle called "How to live Big on Small budget". As soon as I started reading it, I had to put it up! Is it just me or are most of the personal finance books out there made for people who have money, but just don't know how to manage it??? I mean really, if I read one more book that tells me "Sell that second home", "Drive just one car", "Sell some stock", I'm going to scream! Hey guy who wrote this book clearly made for someone who makes 100k and not 29k, "I don't have that second home, hell I don't have a first home!" ,"I don't have a second car and had I not got current I would be out of my first car", "What are these stocks you speak of???"

I would just love a book that is made for people in my money situation. For the lower middle class personÖ..because according to an article on Yahoo, that's what I am. I want a book that is written by a person, who was actually in debt and go out, not by some person who never was and just studied numbers in school, read other books, tweaked here and there and then put out a book.

Now I'm not saying these books aren't helpful. For some people, these books are made just for you and for me personally I do find tips and tricks that I can use in my situation, but it would be nice to have a book that I can completely relate to. I just have yet to find that book.

Iím not going to count this book out, I just started it and maybe I will be surprised. I will be sure to report back and let you know how I liked or didnít like the book!
