Introduction to The Know-Nonsense Guide to Money
If understanding money seems boring, or you’re looking for a funny guide to finances, you’re in the right place. This book tackles the key concepts you need to know to earn, save, spend, and share money wisely. Whether you’re rolling in cash or counting pennies, money is important. It lets us exchange our precious time and energy for things like hamburgers, tutus, and skateboards, and services like getting a haircut or taking piano lessons. Money makes it easier to track the value of all these things. It also helps us know who owes what to whom. Sound like nonsense? Fear not! By the end of this book, you’ll have a wealth of new knowledge and be clear on the difference between a debit card and a credit card, understand how you can earn more money, and see why sharing and saving are just as important as spending.

The book is broken up into chapters: What is Money, Earning, Saving, Spending and Borrowing. Each of the chapters contain full page illustrations, some with sidebars, covering such essentials as 'Needs vs. Wants' and setting financial goals.
Quite a lot of the information contained here isn't regularly taught in schools and is really important for life skills mastery. It would make a great addition to a school or classroom library as well.
This book is the third in the 'Know-Nonsense' guide series, following Know-Nonsense Guide to Measurements, and The Know-Nonsense Guide to Grammar. Author Heidi Fiedler includes quite a number of subtle philosophical points in the text in an easy to digest (non-preachy) manner. The art by Brendan Kearney is quirky, colorful, and fun and supports and illustrates the text very well.
Quite a fun and accessible introduction to money and its potential effects on our lives.
