J.D. Roth is an accidental personal-finance expert and a regular guy who found himself deep in debt. After deciding to turn his life around, he read everything he could about money and finance. In 2006, he started the award-winning blog Get Rich Slowly, which Money Magazine named the Web’s most inspiring personal-finance blog, and Time Magazine named it one of the best blogs of 2011. J.D. is also the author of Your Money: The Missing Manual, and now writes at “More Than Money.”
