This is what my fiancee and I are reading now.
I'm realizing slowly, with her help, what a poor working knowledge I had with money for the last 30 years. Growing up, we just never got a good culture of money since we always seemed to have enough to get by. There's plenty of blame to go around, but now it's time for me to get with the program. You see, for a long time, I have not been disciplined enough to have a budget and plan according to it. It's always been, I need to eat now so if there isn't anything I want in the house, I will go out. I would get a notion that a purchase would benefit me greatly. The rest of my life has been more or less like this, too. I never had to develop great discipline because I was smart enough to get by with minimal effort. So now, I have this book and we are working together to get in shape for our future. The skill I may gain from this will also help me in other areas as well.
I know nothing....
What happens when you pay attention?
