A Real Dissapointment,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Real Cost of Living: Making the Best Choices for You, Your Life, and Your Money (Paperback)
I so hoped this book would provide some good solid advice but it turned out to be little more than anecdotal stories without much empirical data to back it up. Instead of hard facts it proved more personal opinion along with what most people intuitively already know. For example in talking about stocks, she states "We tend to sell winners too early and losers too late. We're human." Not exactly Nobel Prize material for economics. I wanted something more solid. Save your money - the real cost of this book was $14.95 and several hours of wasted time reading it. This book was not a good investment.
