This surprise is exactly the reason for this book and why it’s so important: The financial situation of people in tech is so unique that even seasoned professionals struggle to offer best-practice advice because they’ve never dealt with these kinds of situations before.
Bruce calmly and methodically explains exactly what one needs to think about, in order, after an IPO; my seasoned CFP missed quite a few of these, for example the 529. He’s also aware of how conditions will change at a company after such an event, and generally how one’s emotions are likely to interact with one’s finances.
This book is written by someone that is an engineer and software product employee at heart, and thus he speaks our language.
