A new financial guide on how to avoid money mistakes at every stage of life, from bestselling author and TV superstar Kevin O’Leary—“a completely unique personality. He is able to say things that are sharp and funny but ultimately meaningful” (Los Angeles Times).
Don’t spend too much. Mostly save. Always invest.
This is simple advice, but it’s often the simple advice that’s easy to swallow and hard to follow. Kevin O’Leary understands that getting a handle on your personal finances can be challenging at any age. Whether you’re a parent struggling to explain savings to your children, a student contemplating a big loan to pay for school, a newly engaged couple considering joint bank accounts, or a baby boomer entering retirement, Kevin offers solid, practical advice to help you make—and keep—more money.
As a star on ABC’s Shark Tank, Kevin’s success with money management and in business is legendary. But he’s made mistakes along the way, too, and he’s written this book so others can benefit from his experiences. Each chapter is geared to a specific age or stage in life and focuses on simple changes you can make to avoid debt, save money, and invest for a brighter future. You’ll find real-life examples of common money mistakes and strategies for avoiding them, “Cold Hard Truth” quizzes and charts aimed at boosting your financial wisdom, and tips and tricks for making more money and growing it faster to achieve financial freedom.
The Cold Hard Truth on Men, Women, and Money offers an invaluable opportunity to walk through some of life’s biggest decisions with one of the sharpest financial minds today.
Books on investing usually require a thorough understanding of how the stock market works, and can frustrate or overwhelm the lay reader. Enter O Leary (Cold Hard Truth: On Business, Money & Life), a tremendously successful entrepreneur who moonlights as an investor on TV s Shark Tank. In his latest book, O Leary guides readers through financial decisions big and small, challenging them to understand their relationship with money, and focus on improving that relationship. These changes, according to O Leary, will ultimately lead to greater financial stability. The beauty of O Leary s approach is that it s straightforward and addresses the reader s changing financial needs at different life stages, from wedding planning and marriage, to buying a new home and having kids, to midlife and retirement. He lists numerous common money mistakes that people make and how to fix them, including: drowning in credit card debt; having no emergency savings; and not knowing where to invest. O Leary pays particular attention to raising money-savvy kids and addresses the high cost of higher education and the lower costs of retirement. Full of valuable advice imparted in a no-nonsense manner, this book will have a profound effect on how people relate to and manage their money.

THIS NEEDS TO BE AN AUDIOBOOK!
This needs to be in an audiobook form, this type of stuff is meant to be reviewed regularly, and should be available in an audiobook. Kevin, take note of how Robert read his own book... I'd much rather listen to this read by Kevin a little each evening while he sips his wine than it to be read by a professional with perfection. READ IT FOR AN AUDIOBOOK KEVIN! Please! 5 Stars!
I learned some key concepts that I plan to take with me in this journey we call life. Frugality, serious thinking before you make any purchases, pre-nuptials, cash flow importance (dividends), credit cards and car maintenance & payments were just a few of the concepts that produced vital information for me. I look forward to implementing the things I’ve learned in this book in my life! Thanks for your honesty Mr. Wonderful!
A life plan
I really enjoyed reading this book, being a 20 year old already looking at my finances for the future. What a great way to prepare yourself for the worst to come!
