Book Review: "Broke Millennial" 

What's my rating for "Broke Millennial"?

I gave the book a 4 out of 5 Rockstar rating.

You can practice all sorts of delusional techniques about how you value eating well and pride yourself on only making purchases you actually use, but when you notice you’re buying two pints of ice cream a week and you never actually read the USA Today you pay for each morning, well, maybe your priorities and money aren’t completely in sync.
— Erin Lowry, "Broke Millennial", p. 34.

Author Erin Lowry chose her audience well and never deviates from it. Those most likely to heed the messages in this book are young, broke students or post-secondary graduates with some debt (student loans and possibly other consumer debt) who are facing a still lukewarm entry-level job market.

She speaks to her audience both from experience and vicariously through the experience of friends, which she shares via entertaining stories.

I could have used a book like this in my early twenties (minus the hashtags throughout…they wouldn’t have been all that useful back then).

Here’s what you’ll find in this book:

  1. How to better understand your relationship with money and how it’s influencing your saving and spending behavior
  2. Guidance on the personal finance topics to address first, based on your current behaviors and financial situation
  3. A cheerleader along the way who genuinely wants you to succeed at this thing called “money”
