It's rare and refreshing to find a book so enjoyable, so accurate and so life-changing. - Larry Winter, CPA, certified valuation analyst, certified fraud examiner, personal financial planning specialist.

Wisdom Creek Press has released an award-winning personal finance book for Generation Y to help them thrive in the current economic climate and beyond. Enjoy Your Money! How to Make It, Save It, Invest It and Give It, by J. Steve Miller, follows the adventures of four diverse students who form “The Counterculture Club.” The club is led by an eccentric, financially savvy teacher who agrees to mentor the students on how to earn money, control expenses, and find more happiness in the process. Miller, founder and president of Legacy Educational Resources, wrote the book as a fictional story to appeal to teens and twenty-somethings who want a successful financial future.

“Although the book is well researched and documented, Enjoy Your Money! is more about people than numbers,” said Miller. “One way to help Generation Y learn critical financial principles is to package the information in an engaging story about young people they can identify with. Also, rather than telling young people what to do with their money, the book shares stories of how successful people like Warren Buffett and Sam Walton succeeded. Then, readers can adopt whatever financial management plan works for them.”

The characters in Enjoy Your Money! represent four different cultures and each character challenges traditional stereotypes. While the book targets ages 16 to 32, people of any age can benefit from the financial principles provided in the book, including how to:

  •     Get out of debt and accumulate wealth
  •     Get ahead, even when the work you love doesn’t produce big bucks
  •     Find your strengths and passions and make a living with them
  •     Live a more fulfilled life

"I've read scores of books and periodicals on personal finance. It's rare and refreshing to find a book so enjoyable, so accurate and so life-changing. I'm purchasing hundreds of copies to give away to graduating seniors,” said Larry Winter of Winter & Scoggins CPA's, certified valuation analyst, certified fraud examiner, personal financial planning specialist.

According to Miller, “My original motivation for researching and writing this book was personal. My wife, Cherie, and I have seven boys, from 14-year-old twins to a 27-year-old. I don't want my children to live their lives experiencing the misery of financial bondage. This book sums up what we're trying to teach them about finding financial freedom, and my hope is that it will benefit others across the country as well.”
