I gobbled the book in two days. It's not a bad book though 9 out of 10 roads are aimed at young people. It would be a great book to give to 15-25 year olds (or around that range).
Ken is annoying in some places due
to his hatred of government, taxes, politicians - fully "Forbes"ian
attitude - which is also why I don't read "Forbes". Apart from that it's
a nice light read with some great suggestions and advice for the roads
mentioned. As I said couple thumbs up for young adults. :)
There is smattering of useful info in first 9 roads for non-youngsters, but not much to be worthwhile the time.
10 is "The Road More Traveled" and is a nice 24 page summary of the
"get a good job, be frugal, save and invest smartly" road. Not much new
there, but he manages to pack tons of stuff - well, the whole life -
into 20 pages. It's a good concise reminder material for people who
travel that road, which should be pretty much everyone. It's not
revolutionary: pick good job area, progress with job, be frugal,
calculate what you need to save, save, invest in stocks-index funds,
done. Well, I packed it into sentence, but he gives a bit more info. :)
overall: For young adults: two thumbs up; For older readers: read first nine
chapters for gossip and fun mostly, read chapter 10 to remind of the
road we should be traveling and maybe get one-two insights on it.
