Title: Wealth Odyssey
Author: Larry R. Frank Sr.
Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder
A Practical Money Guide That Every Family Should Read!
Author Larry R. Frank Sr., in his book “Wealth Odyssey: The Essential Road Map For Your Financial Journey – Where Is It You Are Really Trying To Go With Money?” really delivers what the title suggests! This is a great financial road map for all of us to follow. And after reading his book you will realize why you need this book to navigate your future. You will find out how much you really did not know or fully understand about your finances. We have all become so busy making money we do not know how truly to “manage” it. This book gives you a plan and a pathway to follow.
In the very opening of his book Frank sub-heads Chapter 1, with a provocative statement “Learn how to set the sail since you cannot control the wind.” Wow, such a simple statement but it really runs deep. The author takes you by the hand as you take a journey through the pages of his book. It is an education, a wake up call, and very sobering to say the least. My only question was why wasn’t this book’s message about finances and retirement, out there for me decades ago before I retired. The good news is that for younger workers there is a treasure chest of wisdom and knowledge crammed in-between these humble pages and they would be foolish not to explore them and follow the advice.
Larry Frank might be one of the truly great financial gurus but his advice does not take an enlightened spirit to read and comprehend it. He writes for the “every-day-man;” it is practical and chuck full of information. Every home needs certain books in their family library such as the Bible or other holy books for their soul; a first-aid book and medical advisory or health books for the body; and “Wealth Odyssey” for financial survival and security. This book is that important!
This is probably one of the top 10 best business books written in the last decade!
