Rick Emerson Book Reading
Zombie Economics: A guide to personal finance
Do your personal finances resemble a zombie apocalypse? Don't let them eat your brains yet, this very funny guide on the undeadly serious subject of money will save your life.
The similarities between the ability to survive the zombie apocalypse and maintaining good personal finances are unavoidable: weaknesses could mean your life-or at least the quality of what's left of it. Contemplating upheavals from job loss to massive debt to recession, Zombie Economics delivers sound, rational advice on saving your life from a zombie economy, and includes such topics as:
- A Basement Full of Ammo: Saving yourself by saving money
- They'll Eat the Fat Ones First: Using fitness as a financial asset
- Shooting Dad in the Head: Ending your relationships with the financially infected
Anyone fed up with the dreariness of traditional financial advice tomes and the annoying style of personal finance gurus will devour this sage zombie wisdom.
