5.0 out of 5 stars A+ - Best in it's class! 22 Jan 2011
By Nancey F - Published on
Living in the Village was easy an read and gave me a clear understanding of what I need to do with my finances. The thing is that much of what the author discusses, we already know. It's just common sense. However, reading it and putting these practices to work for you is another story. My husband and I are just starting out and we've decided to use this book as a guide to help us attain our financial goals. I've always been practical when it comes to saving, but there are so many other nuances that I now realize that I've overlooked. This book is right on time especially with the state of the economy. I'm sure I'm not the only person that would like to have more than a few years stashed away for a rainy season. We've been going through a tumultuous storm for the past 3 years and this book can truly help put a lot of people back on track...if you heed to the solutions provided in the book. I felt like I was talking with a financial advisor without the huge fees attached. The testimonies gave me tons of food for thought and inspiration for my life. They made financial literacy real to me. Definitely a great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars B+ 25 Mar 2011
By Gerren Y - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well, personally being a finance professional myself I usually find myself in the self improvement section at my local borders, B&N, etc....I've read Dave Ramsey, Suzy Orman and a few others...The only thing I have to say about this book is I really enjoyed the ''estimated budget'' section...That was helpful to me and I noticed it is an a lot more helpful than Dave Ramsey ""total money makeover section''....I just wished Mr Mack expanded on that a lot more. I guess you can't always get everything you want.I will say,I found chapter 6 very helpful to me particularly four and five when he went on to talk about the credit cards. I must admit I do have not only my american express , brooks brothers card and Jc Penney. I need to get rid of the ...JCP like YESTERDAY. After reading chapter 7 I noticed one thing that I am a total victim of ....when Mr Mack mentioned '''whichever card you choose do not use for everyday purchases....My weakness is American express...the reward points are like DRUGS. All in all, the book I would give it a B+ only because I really wish he would have expanded a lot more on actually breaking down your spending diary(pg 281)

This is hands down the most creative financial literacy book I've read in my career. Allowing the financial principals to be taught through the stories of everyday people is brilliant.
This book is both informative and inspiring. Hats off to Mr. Mack!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic book, must buy! 9 Feb 2011
By Julissa - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Probably one of the best books I've read so far this year. I can tell you that I am in the financial black hole with college loans and debts, this writer has made me see the true value of financial literacy and how anybody can learn. First I thought that the book was not going to relate to myself as I am nineteen years old, but it's so easy to grasp and by just reading the first few chapters, I'm going "OOOHHH" as If I should know this already. Ryan is a great person, serves as a true member of his community and a great mentor. I give it 5 stars.
