    " After reading The Wealthy Barber, I figured I could use some more concrete advice on my financial affairs. This book was a good starting place - nothing revolutionary, but pointed you in the right direction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexandra | 1/18/2014

    " In which Eric Tyson gives a basic introduction to credit reports and tells women not to wear makeup because it's too expensive and they look better without it, anyway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 1/13/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny | 1/8/2014

    " I am a financial professional, so I know almost all of this information. I often need help translating things into laymen terms; so, this is an excellent book for that. 4 stars because I wanted to see more information, but I was informative and I would recommend it to anyone! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 12/12/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jodie | 8/4/2012

    " Decent book if you have no personal finance experience. If you've read Dave Ramsey or any others, this will not be new to you. A lot of topics don't have much depth. "

    " I just finished school and am in my first job. Unfortunately, I am also a total n00b at knowing how to allocate my money (invest? save for retirement? pay off my student loans first? etc.). This book so far has been invaluable for newbies like me. Also very accessibly written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 8/8/2011

    " Loaded with good info. When I read this, I didn't know much about investing or the tax impact of lots of things, but afterwards felt much more comfortable. Great starting point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 5/13/2011

    " I would say this is a must-read book for all, young or old.

    For me, this helped me think about what to do in the area of savings and investment for my last decade or so of work life left.

    But it's also better to read this book in one's 20s or 30s. "
