Here's what the experts are saying about Let's Talk Money:

The responsibility investors bear for their own financial well-being has never been greater. How sad it is that the task has never been more daunting! What type of mortgage, which mutual fund, which insurance policy, and, oh yeah, what about taxes? It's enough to drive even the most dedicated saver crazy. Thank goodness for Dee Lee and Dave Caruso's fun and lively Let's Talk Money. This book covers the big picture... all the stuff you know you ought to be planning for, but just can't seem to get around to doing. If only the list of people I need to send this book to weren't so long!

Don Phillips, CEO, Morningstar, Inc.

Clearly, Dee Lee cares about people, and wants to give them the tools to make the right decisions. In a world of get-rich promises, she gives readers real gold: unbiased information people need to make informed decisions about their finances.

Ellen Schultz, Wall Street Journal

I happen to be a Certified Financial Planner licensee, and one component of my business is educating employees of corporations across the country on a variety of personal finance subjects. During, or at the conclusion of workshops, I am often asked by employees to recommend a good book that will assist them with taking control, or learning more about personal finance. Until now I never felt there was one particular book that actually approached and explained the subjects in a way most people can relate and would motivate them to learn more. Most other personal finance books, though they may be comprehensive, are dry and aren't written in a style people who are not in the profession can relate to. This is not the case with Let's Talk Money! Its nice to have a book that I can strongly recommend. Kudos to the authors!

As a human resources director, I am constantly searching for inventive ways to add value to the relationships I maintain with personnel. I began to lend out this guide to personal finances to people with a lot of questions about our 401K, etc., and got very positive responses from just about everybody. I recommend this for anyone in my position, and hope you find it as useful as I do.

As a financial planner, I often browse the bookstore section on financial planning to see what is offered. This section has exploded, as financial planning seems to have become the hot topic in this age of growing retirement funds and stock options. How does the buyer in need of help choose the right book from so many? The answer is Let's Talk Money: Your Complete Personal Finance Guide by Dee Lee and David Caruso. This book is different.
Most books on financial planning talk about what the consumer should do, with a lot of theories about how to manage money. The consumer still does not know where to start or what to do next. This book goes beyond theory and provides a road map, with checklists and easy to use forms. The organization of the book allows the buyer to use any section independently to solve a financial problem or to use the whole book to put a game plan in place. It is this versatility that makes it a great resource for the financially confused.
This is also a book written by practicing financial planners, and it shows. The authors used their experience with clients to answer the most commonly asked questions and to provide clear and easy to follow solutions. All in all, this is a book for anyone trying to make sense of the many financial decisions that we all face today.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Colette Bouchez on April 2, 2000
This book was recommended to me by a friend who is a top Wall Street broker . At first I thought the information would be way over my head - I'm just getting started in the financial world. But I was surprised to discover just how easy it was to understand. The writing is clear and concise throughout - and almost magically, the writers seem to anticipate any questions you might have ,and answer them. It's almost like having a financial planner in the family ! Buy it- the advice is worth a fortune.

What a wonderful book! The structure is such that you can read it straight through or just reference a particular area of interest. It is so easy to read, too. Not something usually attributed to a Financial book!
I would recommend this book to novices and savvy financial people alike. For the novice, it is a wonderful guide to getting started. Many people feel overwhelmed when veiwing their personal financial lives, asking "where do I start"? This book will get you started in a very straighforward manner and then give you great tips for how to proceed.
At the same time, Let's Talk Money is very helpful for people who are more fiancially savvy. It serves as a reminder of things they should do, may give them some new ideas, and serve as a reference guide going forward.
Either way, this is a must read! I enjoyed it immensely!
