Exactly what to do. Do this and you will have money. While simple to read it is boring but short.

For those who think they are managing their money sensibly this book provides a check-up to make sure one really knows the basics of money and life-style management. For those who are simply not thinking about consequences of debt (especially credit card debt), lack of a savings plan and ultimately investing for the future (or for emergencies) - this book is easy to comprehend and provides clear and relevant examples along with action plans to help move forward. Even if getting rich is not the goal - this book will help the reader learn how to make better day-to-day decisions and get the most from the money at their disposal. Knowledge is power and this book helps the reader get in the drivers seat.

Barbara Friedberg's book, How to Get Rich, provides timeless advice. After reading some of the less flattering reviews, I could see the human tendency to look for something new: some new strategy for wealth building that hasn't already been discovered. Those reviewers, unfortunately, are looking for a holy grail. And their investments will suffer for it.

There isn't anything new in personal finance worth knowing. As Barbara eloquently points out, avoid bad debts, be frugal, and invest for the long term in a portfolio of stocks and bonds. She provides a simple allocation of stock and bond market indexes on page 83, which would do the trick nicely.

Instead of a "new strategy for wealth" investors may want to see even more from Barbara's next book (I hope it's coming Barbara)

Most investment books, for example, fail to show investors how to execute their investments. Who do they call? What do they say? Who can they trust? How do they make their purchases? With screen shot examples, Barbara Friederg could make that happen. After doing so, I think she might be the only personal finance writer to take that leap into the simply prescribed territory that investors are keen to understand through examples.

Based on Barbara's easy writing style, she's just the writer for the job.
