College seniors graduating in 2012 face a sluggish economy, bleak job prospects, and a mountain of student loan debt. To make matters worse, many don't have the first clue about how to manage their personal finances.
Author Zac Bissonnette, a recent college graduate himself, learned how to handle money by watching his parents mistakes, and ignoring most of their advice. He put himself through college with no loans, scholarships, or help from his parents and offers advice to his fellow twenty-somethings in a new book.
NPR's Neal Conan talks with Bissonnette about his book, How to Be Richer, Smarter, and Better-Looking Than Your Parents.
