  • I wish I had written this book!  "Worth It/ Not Worth It"-this books is definitely WORTH IT.  Jack Otter, is great writer, fabulous editor-and has written a wonderful, fun book that quickly answers your most pressing financial questions. The format is also unique, which I really enjoyed.  I think this is a great "gift book" for the graduate season that is quickly approaching.  Enjoy!
