Just Give Me the Answer$: Expert Advisors Address Your Most Pressing Financial Questions Paperback – June 1, 2004
Top Customer Reviews
For example, the section on "Software for Staying Organized" includes mention of only 3 software products, two of which are Microsoft Money and Intuit Quicken. The author starts her comments saying "The basic/standard versions are entry-level products designed for people new to personal finance software" (My experience with the basic versions of those programs is that they include quite powerful analysis and budgeting tools).
If you're just starting out or really need a primer, this is a readable book and comes well recommended. But if you are reasonably literate in working with lenders and insurance companies, you'll find this too simple.
I'm new to just about all good money habits but this book is a great starter to help people with little to no experience with more than a checking account (which I know is a lot of people) and help them know where to turn and some questions to pursue.
I wish I'd had this advice/information when I was 21. (Assuming I would've listened then).
