Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you have had to take out a mortgage to buy a house, have ever purchased life insurance or have a retirement account, this book will seem extremely basic. There aren't really any tools, worksheets or practical plans here. The book is simply a series of "Tips" -- very brief articles from different financial planners. It's a readable format, but there's not much meat.

For example, the section on "Software for Staying Organized" includes mention of only 3 software products, two of which are Microsoft Money and Intuit Quicken. The author starts her comments saying "The basic/standard versions are entry-level products designed for people new to personal finance software" (My experience with the basic versions of those programs is that they include quite powerful analysis and budgeting tools).

If you're just starting out or really need a primer, this is a readable book and comes well recommended. But if you are reasonably literate in working with lenders and insurance companies, you'll find this too simple.

This book is a great place for the do-it-yourself investor to look when validating what you are planning to do in your financial world. Worth its weight in gold.

Format: Paperback
I got this book last summer for my birthday. I'm not very good with money, my mom's not very good with money and I learned at her knee. However, I've been trying to change that and this book has been very helpful in steering me in the right direction.

I'm new to just about all good money habits but this book is a great starter to help people with little to no experience with more than a checking account (which I know is a lot of people) and help them know where to turn and some questions to pursue.

I wish I'd had this advice/information when I was 21. (Assuming I would've listened then).
