Publisher's Summary

Stop living paycheck to paycheck and get your financial life together (#GYFLT)! If you're a cash-strapped 20- or 30-something, it's easy to get freaked out by finances. But you're not doomed to spend your life drowning in debt or mystified by money. It's time to stop scraping by and take control of your money and your life with this savvy and smart guide.

Broke Millennial shows step by step how to go from flat broke to financial badass. Unlike most personal finance books out there, it doesn't just cover boring stuff like credit card debt, investing, and dealing with the dreaded B word (budgeting). Financial expert Erin Lowry goes beyond the basics to tackle tricky money matters and situations most of us face #IRL, including:

  • Understanding your relationship with moolah: Do you treat it like a Tinder date or marriage material?
  • Managing student loans without having a full-on panic attack
  • What to do when you're out with your crew and can't afford to split the bill evenly
  • How to get "financially naked" with your partner and find out his or her "number" (debt number, of course)
  • And much more

Packed with refreshingly simple advice and hilarious true stories, Broke Millennial is the essential road map every financially clueless millennial needs to become a money master. So what are you waiting for? Let's #GYFLT!

you should read this even if you have no debt

I don't struggle with debt anymore but for a young person this book provided new insights that I hadn't considered previously even though I considered myself more educated than most people when it comes to finance

Great for young adults looking to change their money habits!

I really enjoyed this book. I’m a new grad and actively searching for my first full time job in my field. I’m at the point in my life where money and investing are very important parts of my current and future life. I found this book really helpful in giving an overview of mistakes to avoid and advice for future investments. I highly recommend giving it a read if you are in the same boat as me!

Why take advice from someone without uni debt

A struggle to listen to someone with so much privilege talk about money. Pass on this

Not a good book

Author is very full of herself. Lots of self praising and bragging. condescending tone. Couldn’t continue listening to her after awhile.

A really great, detailed, easy to understand book

I really enjoyed reading this book. There was a perfect balance between detailed information and tips on finance as well as millennial humor. Neither aspect overshadowed the other. This book will definitely help me. I plan on gifting it to everyone. Thank you!

Thank you, Erin!

This is the book I desperately needed to start getting my *it together. Detailed and specific without being boring. Offers lots of examples to help you interpret how you can approach your finances. Erin also infuses a healthy dose of goofiness to keep you awake and slightly less stressed out. I still haven’t gotten through all of it because I’m focusing on implementing the first 12 chapters!
