I hope it's fun to read, and I hope it will save them at least $1,000 a year just on the smart-spending tips. I hope it will help motivate readers (or their spouses) to want to save that money, by helping them see the big picture and the value in taking control of their finances.
I like to think the book has broad application. Especially if someone is just starting out in some way graduating and embarking on a career, marrying and starting to plan a family, even, divorcing and having to cope on one's own or losing a parent and inheriting a chunk of money for the first time.
I make this really impassioned pitch for getting your bride-to-be a really nice synthetic diamond ring - and a $4,000 Roth IRA with the saving - because the ring is indistinguishable from a real one, and one Roth IRA contribution could be worth a quarter million tax-free dollars.
The basic advice never changes, but the Internet addresses sure do! And the tax laws. And I've added a section to try to help you deal with your aging parents or grandparents, and another on timber (who says money doesn't grow on trees?).
