“Oh my god, it's happening again.”
These were author Byron Tully's words as he watched the global economy implode as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in the early months of 2020.
It was a startling, surreal sequel to the 2007 Financial Crisis. It left millions of Americans not only facing a deadly health crisis, but also unemployment, eviction or foreclosure, and the loss of any savings they might have had.
The 2007 devastation had inspired Byron to write The Old Money Book: How To Living Better While Spending Less — Secrets of America's Upper Class. The book became an instant classic, a touchstone of wisdom and inspiration for college students and grandparents alike.
With the global pandemic bringing the American economy to its knees earlier this year, Byron felt compelled to update and expand the original version. He wanted to offer more detailed information. He wanted to amend some of his previous opinions and advice to reflect a change in his own perspectives, as well as to reflect changes in the world.
Most importantly, he wanted to provide readers with current, actionable content that could help them help themselves, right now, in this moment of tremendous stress and uncertainty.
This 2nd Edition of The Old Money Book, he noted, would be 'more a manual on how to respond to a house on fire than how to respond to a dinner invitation.'
And so it is. The original text of The Old Money Book remains in full and in tact. There are also key excerpts from his other books-The Old Money Guide To Marriage, Old Money New Woman, and Old Money Style. What's more, there are Byron's astute and incredibly relevant insights into todays economic and social landscape that can help you survive and even thrive in this incredibly challenging moment.
Byron has also shared some of his most popular blog posts from The Old Money Book Blog (www.theoldmoneybook.com) which has been visited by over 1 million readers since 2014.
So whether you devour The Old Money Book 2nd Edition for its information or savor it for its wisdom, it's certainly a book you'll enjoy today…and cherish to in the years to come.
