The author, Melissa Win Yun Leong, joins an overcrowded field of Canadian Media 'Financial Experts' like Kelley Keehn, Preet Banerjee, Bruce Sellery, Jessica Moorhouse, Cait Flanders, Barry Choi, and dozens more. While most of them seem to be able to read a teleprompter, and have some sort of sketchy background in the 'financial services' industry, very few of them can write worth a hoot. Leong's epiphany, that she feels compelled to share with her followers, include such stunning insights as 'Don't buy stuff that you don't really need' (even though her husband - who she describes as MOFO More Orders From Online, is clearly a shopaholic). Her chatty attempt at humour, a thin veneer of financial information, and sloppy writing left me wondering who actually benefits from the pulp that these hacks turn out?

I really tried to read this book but I got halfway before I quit reading. It was just difficult for me to like this author's writing style and the humor she used throughout the book.

"The reason people spend the way they do, save or go into debt is usually because they want to be happy." Seemple! And brilliant!
