FORMATS
Entertaining and informative, this book by first time author (and reality TV semi-regular) Corey sheds light on the plans and processes that led him to achieve his goal of amassing a million dollars by his third decade. In a winning narrative, Corey leads readers through his post-collegiate career as the cheapest of cheapskates, starting each chapter with a cute but revealing paragraph letting readers know all that he had yet to grasp in pursuit of money-making and -saving strategies. Though very few readers will be able to follow Corey's same path to riches (he doesn't expect them to), bulleted tips and sidebars (""Extreme Cheapskate Strategy: Buy one pair of multipurpose shoes a year. Don't buy any others"") give readers solid advice as well as an appreciation for Corey's discipline. Throughout, the tone is conversational, humorous and occasionally glib; the under-30 crowd (for whom the current American economy can be especially unkind) will find Corey's advice welcome and his story encouraging.
