Book Review: Beyond Getting By by Holly Trantham

In this latest book from The Financial Diet, Holly Trantham gives us some real life strategies to manage money, get paid more at work, stop listening to the lies we tell ourselves, and learn how to truly value our time. Through sage advice and step-by-step exercises, Trantham helps readers gain the knowledge and insight necessary to fully advocate for oneself in the workplace and in life. Well researched and written, this text is a must have for anyone looking to better themselves financially and gain more security in their financial life.

Throughout the text, Trantham focuses on abundance and intention, which she stresses “are the most valuable [themes] when it comes to living a more fulfilling, happier life”. Trantham shares practical advice for how to focus on these themes and build a bright future. Unlike other financial books that you may have read, this book focuses deeply on systemic issues that face each individual, as well as larger societal issues that are inescapable in modern-day American life. These issues inform the readers own journey to financial success and help navigate the difficult terrain leading to financial stability.

Lauren Ver Hage provides lovely illustrations throughout the text, giving the book a sense of whimsy and light-heartedness, even in the midst of some difficult topics. Finances are often uncomfortable to read (and talk) about, but the combination of practical advice and watercolor visuals helps to soften the content and help the reader maintain focus.

If you are looking for a book that will help you gain practical knowledge of how to move forward with your financial life, dispel shame-based budgeting myths, live abundantly rather than excessively, ditch FOMO, leave behind the girlboss attitude, and set some useful boundaries, look no further than Beyond Getting By, coming to you from Crown Currency, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group, on 23 April 2024.
