Flipping Burgers to Flipping Millions: A Guide to Financial Freedom Whether You Have Your Dream Job, Own Your Own Business, or Just Started Your First Job

Bernard Kelly. Hyperion, $21.99 (176p) ISBN 978-1-4013-2420-9
Kelly started working the fryer at McDonald's just out of high school, was promoted to store manager at 25, and now at 30, he's an operations consultant overseeing six stores and his net worth is more than 30 times the median net worth of his peers—all through sheer not hard work. He sets out to tell readers how they can become financially free, even if they're flipping burgers—but succeeds only in presenting the basics vaguely and without nuance. He touches briefly on the virtues of financial freedom, hard work, creating financial goals, living below your means, and retirement planning—but barely scratches the surface on any subject. Kelly squanders his opportunity to really mine his experience for sound advice, instead he fritters away the reader's patience with odes to his employer, a self-important tone, and the barest of financial advice.
