“Just Keep Buying is the ideal combination of thoughtful and actionable. Maggiulli not only uses evidence to guide his suggestions, but he is also among the best at boiling everything down into ideas that are easy-to-understand and apply.” – James Clear, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Atomic Habits
“The first time I read Nick Maggiulli's writing I knew he had a special talent. There are lots of good data scientists, and lots of good storytellers. But few understand the data and can tell a compelling story about it like Nick. This is a must read.” – Morgan Housel, bestselling author of The Psychology of Money
“Nick Maggiulli clearly delights in flouting the received wisdom about how people should manage their money. The end result is a book that’s full of both aha moments and practical takeaways. As a fellow writer about personal finance, I felt a creeping sense of jealousy in what I was reading. Nick takes the tired topics of how to save and invest well and managed to make them utterly fresh and even quite a bit of fun.” – Christine Benz, Director of Personal Finance, Morningstar
“Nick has a genuine gift - while he uses rigorous empirical evidence to make his case, he also manages to tell the story in such a way to keep the reader's attention and give them practical, actionable advice. In addition, he has just enough of a mischievous streak to challenge some long-held assumptions about investing, but in a manner that makes the empirical data a fresh, interesting story. Investors, new and old, will benefit from Nick's practical approach to investing.” – James O'Shaughnessy, Founder and Chairman, OSAM LLC, and New York Times Business and BusinessWeek bestselling author, What Works on Wall Street

I recognised the author's name from social media. The book has lots of graphs which make the points on financials very clear. Especially the ones with different percent of inflation slashing the money value to half in a certain number of years. There are many many graphs with lots of valuable data. very accessible book with some personal experiences weaved in.
Save money and build your wealth
By Jack | May 6, 2022 | Book Review
A finance book that does a great job for the young as well as the old. I am a bit on the older side of the age spectrum (RetiredGuy) and so I paid bit more attention to the Investing part. But there is also a good part on Saving for the younger adults.
The full title is Just Keep Buying: Proven ways to save money and build your wealth. The author is Nick Maggiulli, data scientist, Chief Operating Officer at Ritholtz Wealth Management, and popular financial blogger focusing on personal finance using data analysis.
The bulk of the book is divided in 2 sections: Saving (mostly for younger folks accumulated saving based on work) and Investing (focusing on those who have already accumulated assets). Of course there are those who belong in both groups.
Often financial advice seems rather rigid. One rule for everyone, But life is more complicated and someone may be in a situation where the standard advice is unhelpful or even detrimental. This is a guide that takes this into account and cites evidence and educates, so the individuals can decide on the best decisions for them.
The author able to integrate evidence and personal stories to teach about balancing saving, spending, earning, and investing. I think this is an excellent book both for those trying to start building wealth and those of us further along in that process.
