Goodreads:  In this compelling, heartwarming parable, Bach and his bestselling coauthor John David Mann (The Go-Giver) tell the story of Zoey, a twenty-something woman living and working in New York City. Like many young professionals, Zoey is struggling to make ends meet under a growing burden of credit card and student loan debt, working crazy hours at her dream job but still not earning enough to provide a comfortable financial cushion. At her boss’s suggestion, she makes friends with Henry, the elderly barista at her favorite Brooklyn coffee shop.

Henry soon reveals his “Three Secrets to Financial Freedom,” ideas Zoey dismisses at first but whose true power she ultimately comes to appreciate. Over the course of a single week, Zoey discovers that she already earns enough to secure her financial future and realize her truest dreams—all she has to do is make a few easy shifts in her everyday routine.

Kritters Thoughts:  An interesting way to present some financial instructions through a fictional tale.  Through Zoey struggling with a job decision that is also a financial decision, with a chance meeting with a guy in a coffee shop she gets some lessons that help make that decision and future decisions.

I liked this quick little book that was full of life lessons but in such an unique way.  It was easy to put myself in Zoey's shoes and think about the financial decisions I make on every day and how the small decisions impact the big ones and the future.

I think this is the perfect gift book for a high school and college graduate.  Here are some lessons that should be learned when you are young because if you start that interest early it makes such a difference when you are older.

I can understand why Oprah had him on her show and why it became a hit.  I am so surprised I didn't hear about then, but glad to have read it now.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
