When you finished high school or college, did you feel like you knew how to successfully
manage your money?

For many, the answer to that question is "No". That certainly was the
case for fames Wood, author of the informative new book From Romen to Riches:
Building Wealth in Your 2Os [The Tannywood Group,2O10). Despite Wood's well paying
job, he had managed to spend everything he'd earned in the five years after college.
Wood's financial epiphany came at age 26 while meeting with a mortgage banker. After
reviewing his loan application, the banker asked, "You mean to tell me you've been
employed as a software engineer for five years and your net worth is $500?" That humbling
meeting with the banker inspired Wood to finally get serious about managing and investing
his money.
Now in his early 50's, the author is debt-fee, owns a home mortgage-free, and
has built a retirement portfolio that will sustain both him and his wife in the coming years

From Ramen to Riches is a silver medal winner in the 2011 Living Now BookAwardsa nd is
a finalist in the 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
