John Spooner has written the book that I needed fifty years ago
in No One Ever Told Us That. Supposedly written as letters
to his grandchildren, the book contains a wealth of information,
especially on financial matters. I suspect that posing the book
as letters was a literary ploy, but boy does it work. Written as
letters, the message seems to come from the heart and not the ranting
of some expert who thinks he has the answers to all the world's
The book is definitely aimed at the younger set-those just ready
to enter the work force and the complications of finances.
Spooner's information on insurance and insurance agents would have
been of high value to me thirty years ago, and his evaluation of
these people seem to be on the money-it's not a positive one.
The book has 59 chapters or letters. I received the mp3 format,
but I would suggest those who are just starting out purchase a paperback
(or hardback) copy and mark up the book. Read through the book and
then as different aspects come up, reread and add to what Spooner
has provided for you. Based on his advice and my experiences, I
can find no fault with his offerings.
As a passing remark, I wonder if he ever wrote just a chatty letter
to his grandchildren concerning such things as how is your love
life or what movies and books are you attracted to?
