Of course you work for your money. The question is, does your money work for you? You know you owe it to yourself and your family to make the best possible fiscal decisions. So why aren't you managing your money better? Perhaps you think that you don't have enough extra cash to bother learning more about money management (a common myth). Or maybe phrases such as mutual funds, long-term bonds, annuities, and whole life vs. term make your head spin.

For all those people who don't know the difference between the commodities market and the supermarket, here is expert and trustworthy advice from a financial counselor and lecturer who speaks your language. Cutting through the jungle of statistic complexity, Personal Finance for Dummies shows you how to make easy work of your own finances, no matter what your income or experience level. Greater return for your money, with less anxiety - that's a bargain if we ever heard one.
