5.0 out of 5 stars Rent or Buy? BUY, March 26, 2013

This review is from: Personal Finance (McGraw-Hill/Irwin Series in Finance, Insurance, and Real Est) (Hardcover)
I pity the reviewer who said the subject is long and boring. There is so much information in this book that I'll be sharing with my less-than-financially savvy family members. There are internet resources listed throughout, detailed instructions for deciphering everything from credit disclosure statements to insurance and investment offers. In a nutshell, this is an excellent manual for living in the grown-up world, where we earn money, spend money, and try not to think about some future date when we no longer have the abilities to do either. There is a great section in the back for personal financial planning, but the publisher also offers the worksheets in Excel format on their website (no access code required).

I rented this book but did so several weeks before the semester (when supply is high and rental rates are lower), but I'll be buying a copy to keep for personal reference. Yeah, lesson learned. I'd have saved money if I'd bought instead of rented. :D
