Spend It Backward introduces a new methodology for money management that is easy to apply and can revolutionize your approach to the lifetime management of your finances. Rooted in the theory of optimization, the familiar elements of a financial strategy – earnings, savings, taxes, investments, and spending – are woven together with this new methodology that actually optimizes the trajectory of your financial life. Savings are emphasized, but only as the enabler of a balanced flow of finances. The book is about spending as much as it is about saving. So the crucial question is how much money can be safely spent now considering that you have but one life to live and the length of even that one is highly uncertain. This question is authoritatively answered. Follow the prescriptions of this book and be assured that you will optimize the joy of your monies throughout your life and, when you finally do retire, adequate savings will be there to gentle your declining years as well.

Both the book and its author can be introduced with the phrase: A Rocket Scientist explores the world of personal finance and discovers a better way. Dr. Curkendall was formally schooled in engineering and mathematics first at Cornell and then at UCLA. An unusual provenance for a book on financial advice, but one that brings new insight and concepts to this well trodden path. He has long applied his skills at Caltech's Jet Propulsion Laboratory to the design, determination and control of spaceflight trajectories. Here he brings the same concepts that optimized those trajectories to the optimization of your own unique life's financial trajectory. Spend It Backward is his first venture into publishing but he has written over 100 technical papers and has lectured widely. In that sense he has been writing and explaining ideas all his life. He currently he divides his professional time between JPL and with viaSpace, Inc., a Pasadena technology firm.
