Thorough, Witty Insightful,
This review is from: Making the Most of Your Money Now: The Classic Bestseller Completely Revised for the New Economy (Hardcover)
Having read dozens of investment and financial planning books over the past ten years, I can say that Jane's tome is as level-headed and comprehensive as anything out there. She puts last year's financial meltdown in its proper context, (a big deal, but not the end of the world, and certainly not a reason to abandon equities). She shows you the usefulness of asset allocation, what you can anticipate from various allocations, and takes you through the steps of setting up a plan you can rely on. She tells you about home purchases and car purchases and planning for your children's college expenses.
In short, Jane Bryant Quinn pretty much guides you through the whole twisting rat's maze that we know as "Managing Your Money" and makes the journey (relatively) pain free. There are other good books on the handling of personal cash flow out there, but J.B.Q's is among the best of them. Go buy your copy today. It'll be $36 well spent.
