US edition has launched

 

Findependence Day US EditionLiterally years in the making, the new U.S. edition of Findependence Day has launched, just in time for my 60th birthday party this Saturday!

Initially, you can get the new book in paperback or hardcover form from the three sources listed in the link below:

US online sources for new US edition of Findependence Day

These include Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and the publisher, Trafford.com. The e-book is not yet out but will cost just under $4 when ready, hopefully a week or two from now.

Here are the key differences from the first (2008) edition, which was originally a North American edition but which I now call the Canadian edition:

1.) Brand new cover and back cover, actually closer to the original concept I had to illustrate Findependence Day.

2.) Completely Americanized, with all Canadian financial content removed and plenty of new material on American IRAs, Roth plans, Social Security and so on.

3.) Reset entirely in the United States: primarily Chicago, Boston, New York and Florida

4.) The technology subplot now features a Twitter-like fictional “Chirper” rather than the discussion forum in the original (Twitter had only just launched when the first edition came out)

5.) End-of-chapter summaries of what Jamie and Sheena learned. This does break the “fictive dream,” but is more useful for those more interested in the financial literacy content than the story, and helpful in recapping the lessons learned.

6.) New glossary of terms.
