Have you heard that knowledge is the first step?
You might be wondering, “first step in what?”. I believe in almost everything. Kevin King seems to think so as well because his answer to the cry for help from the 22 year old desperate girl was to recommend to her some authentic resources that will help obtain the knowledge to need to have an advantage of her situation.

Kevin’s book recommendations are in the business, success, make money online, personal finance and self help genre and I will like to speculate why his chose these.
The tips and guide for my speculation will be drive from the girl’s question itself.
First she said she was 22 years old:
That means she is a young adult who just left her teenage years. Looking through the books Kevin recommended, you will notice that the authors’ style and language were directed to a young audience with zeal to move forward even though that might be frustrated and depressed at the time of reading the book. The authors use inspirational and challenging personal life stories to evoke an action from their readers. (Books about Young Adults making good money).
Second, she said she was desperate:
Kevin’s book recommendations are of expert and authors that have proven track record of getting sure and fast results. So they are appropriate for someone in a desperate situation and needs a fix fast. In fact, many of the authors were once in a desperate situation and their books reveal how they got out. (Books about money and desperate situations).
Third, she said she had no money:
So he suggested books about how to make money online and offline. Those books dealt with business and money idea that requires little capital to start. Fund that she can easily borrow from a good friend or work a few days to earn. He didn’t stop there, he went on to suggest free and low-cost learning platforms offering practical courses that she can take in a short time. (Books about how to make money with no or little money)
Fourth, she said she had no job, no college degree:
The no college degree denotes that it would be easy to get a high paying job the traditional way. So Kevin stepped up to the task by suggesting books and online learning platforms that teaches you how to get a job or make lots of money on the internet without having a college degree. (Book about getting a job or living without one and about no college degree or cheap-free college degree)
Fifth, she ask for advice or book recommendation:
While others were mainly giving advice, Kevin went with book recommendation because as he stated on his tagline, he is a book worm. He applied the wisdom of sticking with what you know and doing it went. In doing so, he address the part of the question that 90% of the answers ignored and were knowledgeable enough to attempt. (Books on book recommendations and advice)
Sixth, she asked for how to start a business and financial increase books:
Look through Kevin’s book recommendations about, you will realised that they are all related to money, business, success and finances. Exactly the kind of books and advice our 22 year old desperate girl was asking for.
Although Kevin’s answer was short and straight to the point, just a book recommendation like some will like to think, I believe he did just to the girl’s question. Maybe even more than many other answers and individuals that ran to the aid of the damsel in need.
Do you think you would have addressed the question the way Kevin King did? Also do you have book recommendations that you will like to add to the list? Let’s hear about them in the comments below. Remember to show some love by sharing this post on social media.
