At age 17 Scott Gamm started his own personal finance blog, Help Save My Dollars. Now a business major at New York University’s School of Business and contributor to websites from The Huffington Post to TheStreet.com, he apparently decided he isn’t quite busy enough.
So he wrote a book.
“More Money, Please: The Financial Secrets You Never Learned in School” is a good primer both for those just starting out and those who, well, never learned what they needed to know in school.
Know someone like that? Enter to win this book and give it to him or her. You might change a life.
Gamm covers the basics – budgeting, debt, banking, credit cards, college costs, investing for retirement, etc. – in a straightforward, easy-to-understand way. Although his prose seems aimed at fellow 20-somethings, the book’s lessons apply to any age and any stage.
It would make a good graduation gift. Just sayin’.
