Financial Friday Book Review


Fridays are dedicated to Financial Matters. At the beginning of the year I decided to take the money horse by the reigns buckling down to pay off debt and save for retirement. Every Friday I share a part of what I learned and implemented, whether the outcome was positive or negative, and what I’ve learned.

My Review:
I was able to get this book for my Kindle for free. The author takes you through what your options can be if you decide to cut cable. I really liked how he was informative in describing partial and complete break off from cable TV. Right off, the author let’s you know what this book is not about, so you know what position he is taking before you even begin reading the first chapter.

Some Chapter Titles:
Can I Save Big Without Cutting Ties
Let’s Start Saving
Stream Baby, Stream (with device recommendations and best services)
Where Are My Sports?
Sample Set Ups

This book was very easy to understand for even the not so technical reader. I understand how things work and with the use of this book could implement any stage of reduction without having to rely on a handyman. There was a lot of new information I gained from reading this book. It is a simple and quick read. Very easy to use a reference book when the reader is ready for implementation. I will definitely refer to this book as long as possible. (Until technology is passed this point.)

This is just one example of some of the free Kindle books that are being offered each and every day by authors through Amazon and if you keep your eye open there are several books that will help us in all aspects of our lives.
