Unlike many personal finance books, How to Manage Your Money When You Don't Have Any was specifically written for Americans who struggle to make it on a monthly basis. It provides a respectful, no-nonsense look at the difficult realities of our modern economy along with an easy-to-follow path toward better financial stability that will give hope to even the most financially strapped households.
Created by a financial expert who hasn't struck it rich, this guide offers a firsthand story of financial survival in the face of rough times. Rather than emphasizing wealth creation, How to Manage Your Money When You Don't Have Any teaches listeners to do the best they can with their incomes no matter their size. Content rich, personal, and jargon free, the book is opinionated, at times humorous, and full of current everyday references.

"Essential advice and great narration!"
The author Eri Wecks has actually had the experience of struggling with money, and he gives essential advice and tools to deal with debt and other practical issues. He's also spot on dealing with money management in relationships, so I recommend especially if you are having any issues in this department. Neil Hellegers' voice is sharp and enjoyable to listen to as the narrator. This book made me think, and it's given me tools to take action to change my financial situation. It's also short and to the point, which I appreciated. If you listen to one book about managing your finances, this is the one!
"For the non-millionaires..."
Absolutely, and I intend to. The books ideas are very simple in concept but very deep in practice. You need to use this book as a tool for the everyday man finances. If you have some sort of inheritance and you dont live paycheck to paycheck....skip this book and go learn how to invest your money. If you just want to survive without being a slave to your bi-weekly check...keep on reading.
Every chapter applied to a situation in my life.
I have not, so I cannot comment.
Already created a budget...its already eye opening.
Like I said up there....dont buy this if you are upper middle class. I wish I had read this book when I was a junior in highschool instead of at 29.
"Super good book. Must read!"
Great book if ur having problems budgeting your money, lots of useful tools. Pretty excited to utilize them. Thanks
What a complete disappointment! Absolutely no new information!! All he did was take Dave Ramsey's Baby Steps System and reword it into Military analogies! He even admits that he is STILL in debt, that he has a *40* year mortgage (which he switched to from a 30 year AFTER writing the 1st edition of this book) and more. If I could get a refund for this digitally purchased Audible book ... I would jump on it in a flat second! Wait a huge waste of my time and money!!!
Provided me with a different viewpoint compared to all the other financial books out there. Helped a lot with my college situation
I really enjoyed this book. He breaks down and gives much needed advice to those who are either new or old to finances. I highly recommend this book to anyone whether your just starting college, just graduated, or raising a family. There a keys and points in this book that will help you tremendously.
"Simple to understand"
Been looking for a simple down to earth financial money book and I found it..
"Defined plan to be debt free"
I felt like he was taking directly to me about my financial struggles. I've taken into consideration a lot of his advice and I know will be financially stable by doing it right!
"Absolute Meritless Junk"
I got through four long chapters with zero substance. He spends chapter after chapter discussing himself and his experience with... not making money? He talks about how Dave Ramsey's system saved his life, but how it has some downfalls. He never goes on to explain the downfall or get into how he can help. It was utter nonesense. I don't even listen to my grandma ramble as much as this guy did. Terrible. I am so angry I wasted one of my audible credits on this piece of crap.
No, this book is crap but I have certainly read other
His examples helped me to see benefit to financial strategies I haven't viewed as important before. I'm excited to get to work!
