A New Book “the super duper simple book on money” Explains Five Principles Every Family Needs to Know

The Hawaii Author Offers the eBook Version Free Until May 14

A new book by a well-known local Hawaii financial expert, familiar to many Hawaii residents statewide, is available free online for a limited time. The new book, “the super duper simple book on money” by Alan Akina, is available both as a free eBook beginning May 1 for a limited time and as a traditional softcover printed book.

Except, it isn’t traditional.

It is easy to read and understand with some cool new ideas:
- It has links online to YouTube videos of people he uses as examples and some of the charts in the text
- It has QR codes for those readers who buy the soft cover book letting them see those same links on their smartphones. That’s neat.
- It is available online for free beginning May 1 through to May 14, 2012 at www.alanakina.com.

The book is designed for average families that can’t seem to keep from falling farther behind and don’t see how they will ever own their home or pay down their debts. Alan Akina uses language everyone can understand and explains the five money principles everyone needs to know.

“The five super duper simple money principles should be taught to every High School senior in America…and their parents,” writes Ken Krebs, CEO, CRI Steel.

Alan Akina was born and lives in Kahuku. He went to BYU Hawaii and this book is interwoven into his early years. His mom and dad divorced when he was six and Alan and his brother were then shuffled from house to house among extended family. From those early, often painful, experiences he writes about how he went about learning the basic financial principles and then how he applied them to his own life.

“It unravels personal finance into simple, easy to grasp concepts,” writes Olin Lagon, a Hawaii Social Entrepreneur.

“If you follow the principles he teaches, there are no limits to what you can achieve,” says Tom McCarthy, author of FIRE-UP Your Presentations.
