It provides relatable anecdotes, concepts, and practices that one can easily apply to their daily lives without getting too deep into the weeds," writes Eroica Davis, associate director of financial aid at the Florida Institute of Technology, who read the book and shared her opinions of its content with NASFAA. What follows are her takeaways, thoughts, and reflections.
