52 Weeks, 52 Books: Week 7

The Truth about Your Future, by Ric Edelman

A book about the future of technology and finance all in one? Yes, there is such a book and you need to read it.

If you’re anything like me you probably don’t get too excited about reading books about finance. I mean, I know it’s important but I just can’t wrap my mind around terms like capital gains, investment strategies and asset allocation. However, I can get excited about The Truth about Your Future by Ric Edelman. The reason why is that it’s really not written like a normal finance book. It’s written about technology and how that will affect your financial future.

Think about just one aspect of future technology and how that will affect you. Let’s take self-driving cars as an example. If we all were able to get to where we wanted by just asking for a car to pick us up and take us somewhere, would we all need to own a car? We wouldn’t need to maintain a car so we wouldn’t need to pay insurance, get gas, or get an oil change. How will that effect travel times, roads, car dealerships and current public transportation systems? This is just one aspect of the future that Ric Edelman discusses in this book.

There are many more technological breakthroughs that will be coming in the relatively near future that will affect your finances. So if you plan to live past tomorrow, you really need to read this book. Click here to place a hold.
