Money! Debt. Credit Scores. Investments. Retirement. College. You need answers you can understand, trust, and actually use! That’s where Liz Weston comes in. In this amazing 4 book collection, America’s #1 personal finance columnist helps you create and execute your own action plan for long-term financial security. No hype, no lectures, no nonsense: just realistic, up-to-the minute help delivered in plain English. Start with the latest edition of Weston’s nationwide best-seller, Your Credit Score, Fourth Edition – complete with brand-new information on protecting (or rebuilding) the 3-digit number that rules your financial life. Learn how today’s credit scores work… exactly how much skipped payments, bankruptcies, and other actions will lower your score… how companies can and can’t use your score against you. Get crucial new information on “FAKO” alternative scores, short sales, foreclosures, FICO 8 mortgage scores, new credit risks from social networking and mobile banking, and how to fight score-related credit limit reductions or higher rates. Next, in Easy Money, learn how to simplify and take control of your financial life, now and forever! Weston takes on the problem everyone has: the sheer hassle of managing money! You’ll find practical guidance and easy checklists for investments, credit cards, insurance, mortgages, retirement, college savings, and more! Discover how to consolidate, delegate, and automate your finances…save time and money…and live a more rewarding, secure life. In Deal With Your Debt, Updated & Revised Edition , Weston offers up-to-the-minute help on averting disaster, recovering from serious money setbacks, getting real help, and taking action that works. Weston reveals why it’s simply impractical to “live forever debt free” - and why trying to do so can actually make you poorer. You’ll find up-to-the-minute strategies for calculating how much debt is safe, and assessing and paying off the right debts first... and if you’re too far in debt, Weston will gently and non-judgmentally guide you back into your “safety zone.” Finally, in There Are No Dumb Questions About Money, Weston offers up-to-date, common sense answers to the financial questions people ask most often. You’ll find quick, sensible advice on setting priorities… choosing investments… saving for college, home-buying, retirement, or other major expenses… getting past the pain, arguments, and guilt surrounding money, and doing what works!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensible No-Nonsense Financial Advice August 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
I've read just about every personal finance book out there. Weston's work is high on my list. She explains the world of personal finance in a straightforward manner. Other writers can be so silly and gimmicky.

In particular, the book "Easy Money" would be a great resource for a young person who is beginning to find her way through the maze of personal finance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unrealistic Wall-Street Ivory Tower Thinking July 23, 2013
By C K
Verified Purchase
For an $85.00 value this is a great deal on Amazon (2013 July), but I wonder if the content is even viable in today's financial market.

The author had to make this collection FREE because most of her target audience is among those barely hanging on by their fingernails -- underemployed or unemployed (roughly 25 to 30% of US workforce over age 18) and they no longer even think in terms of getting out of debt or investments. For folks living paycheck to paycheck or unemployed for 6 to 24 months, this is out of touch, out of date, Wall-Street, ivory tower thinking.

The average time to find a job is six months to a year. Over age fifty, you can double that length of time or plan on early retirement living in your folk's basement. In the age of bare bones survival this material is no longer relevant. Financial guru's have been saying for about the last five years to buy Gold, Silver, Copper, to rollover IRAs to a gold-backed IRA accounts, and get out of "paper money" and traditional stock market investments.

This type of advice is unrealistic and beyond the capabilities of struggling working families and underemployed or unemployed over age fifty.

By Bruce R

This author is a very credible source of info, she once lived in Anchorage and worked for ADN, then moved on to LA and wrote for the LA Times as a personal finance columnist. As an independent author and writer, she presents solid useful info in this set of books.

Wonderful source of info on credit scores and how they work. Especially helpful info for those starting out, or those struggling to improve their credit score.

Well researched info and answers. Highly recommend reading these books.
