Just graduated college with a business degree, thought this book would help me with personal finance since most of my Finance classes helped prepare me for a career in corporate finance and neglected to address personal finance.

The material in the book was VERY basic. Most of the material could easily be found for free by googling the topics. The description will tempt you with many interesting topics and then fail to elaborate in depth on any of the topics.

Do not buy this book unless you are completely clueless on personal finance and need a book to introduce you to the elementary terms and definitions.

This was a great read for someone getting started in the financial planning career. It has good information that will prepare you before your most important decisions. It is a great reference point for anyone interested in such a career and even those who have already began in the industry. Mr. Brandeburg shares his knowledge and experience and explains in a manner that is easy to follow and really motivates the reader. With out a doubt, I'm glad I read this book.

Simple, well explained investment strategies make this book a worthwhile reference guide for young investors. Both macro and micro-economic factors are explained in detail so the reader gains a sense of how to assemble a balanced investment portfolio. A good portion of the book focuses on investing, both in bull and bear markets. It has something to offer for everone - from novice investors to more seasoned pros.

I have used this book in my high school personal finance class with good success. The students are able to easily follow the material and there are worthwhile activities included throughout the book. Easy to read and understand, I recommend this book to others.

Financial Planning For Your First Job had information on a wide range of topics and covers all the financial planning basics really well. It's not hard to follow and can be read in a few days. But there's still enough information that you're left with a sense that you are better able to handle your money now, compared to before you read the book. The only negatives I saw was that there is nothing about how to write a will or trust.
