ABCS of Money is only available on as an e-book, so some mention of how disappointing I found Pace's misuse of her media is appropriate. After the second of an ultimate dozen references to newsletters on her website, I screamed at my screen, "It is an e-book! Just link it!!!" Seriously, you can link a citation to the website, allowing any reader with Internet access and curiosity to quickly explore your resources. Additionally, the pie charts and tables she provides areoly helpful if they are big enough for the reader to actually read them on a typical e-book device.
I found The ABCs of Money to be annoyingly helpful. Not in the sense that I learned so much that I found it to be annoying, but that while I did expand my knowledge of finances, I found her method to be annoying. Her self-promotion and references to her more expensive books was just silly. And while I found the foreword by the chairman of TD Ameritrade to be insightful, the chapter devoted entirely to extolling the virtues of TD Ameritrade significantly cheapened it. I would only recommend this book if you are going on a financial literature reading spree.
Let me be clear, Natalie’s book “The ABC’s of Money” is not for women only. But I think women will love this book. Why? I think many women get themselves in financial trouble simply because they have never really understood the consequences of their financial decisions. It’s something their mother (or father) never shared with them. Natalie makes understanding the use and misuse of money as simple as ABC. Natalie’s book is filled with practical and achievable advice for people who have gotten themselves into a bit of a debt problem and can see no way out.
Call it common sense if you will. Natalie outlines the 10-Step plan for getting out of debt. It is filled with concrete step by step solutions. The First step is to pay yourself first. Credit Counseling services will not give you this sound advice - counter to what one might think would help you to pay off debt, but Natalie stresses that securing your future by saving is a key first step to getting debt relief.
There are many other practical solutions to debt problems Natalie offers to readers. How to dig out of an underwater mortgage, how credit cards compound debt and how to dig out. She underscores the true value of compounding saving instead of debt and how this frees you from financial ruin.
Natalie’s advice does not require you to get an accounting degree to understand or implement. She carefully relates it all to everyday main street situations. This is why I recommend the book to women. Easy to read , easy to grasp and easy to implement. After that, we have more time for the things we love: family, friends and shopping with the “let’s have fun” budget she helps us all to construct.
