Good news everybody!
"Bachelor Pad Economics" is now available on Amazon!!!! (Kindle to follow later)
I have alluded to the nature of the book before, but I think it's best to quote the first chapter of the book to accurately and fully convey what it's about, who it's for, how it will benefit everybody, and just how important this book is for all generations:
"To this end “Bachelor Pad Economics,” (though applicable to everybody) is written with the average American male in mind. Most likely single, most likely young, but every man, married or not, young or not, will benefit greatly from this book. It is the single, most comprehensive source of wisdom for men regarding personal financial management, investing, and life from a financial perspective. It is a roadmap to financial planning that has been sorely missing the past three generations. Reading this book will surpass any number of college classes in terms of the wisdom and help it will grant you, and the younger you read it, the better off you’ll be. This book, quite simply, is a must for every young man out there, so that you not only avoid the mistakes your elders made, but live better and more enjoyable lives than we did."
The only thing I will add is that it is NOT meant to be read as a novel - i.e. - front to back. It is meant to be read as a reference book, consulting the individual chapters that apply to your personal life. Ergo, I recommend reading chapters 1-3 to get the "basics," but then reading any future chapters only on a "as needed" basis.
It is $29.99 (though I think they're discounting it) and I am being serious when I say this - IT IS WORTH THE MONEY. Think of what you drop on some worthless, pre-req college text book, think about your booze habit, and then think about a book that would have prevented you from buying that house you're now underwater on or marrying that woman who took half of your worldly assets.
Again, it is a MUST for all men.
Regardless, I would appreciate your spreading the word. My apologies for not getting it out before Christmas. I prefer quality over speed.
