    Beth Kobliner, author of Get a Financial Life

    " Weston didn't offer a lot for retirees like me but, skimming the book, I think she probably presents a decent guide for those trying to get a handle on their finances. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 4/30/2013

    " VERY good, timely, current advice for handling your finances in this climate. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adrienna | 4/7/2013

    " It was an okay audio book. Speaker was great, a woman, with a calming and soothing voice. Most of the stuff shared, I already read in the past or heard, or experienced through trial and error. I only took a short passage of notes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jack Goodstein | 3/8/2013

    " Common sense advice for financial security in the post bubble economy, albeit a bit repetitious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tressa | 12/23/2012

    " This was a good overview regarding the various aspects of personal finance. I did learn several new items, which I found helpful. There were a few chapters that don't apply to me now, but was good background for the future. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda Royce | 11/15/2012

    " Workmanlike explanation of many personal finance topics. But while the book claims an emphasis on post-collapse paradigms, I found much of the advice to be the old tried-and-true. Nothing groundbreaking, but all solid advice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 9/22/2012

    " I've been on a personal finance kick lately, and this is one of the better ones i've read. It's as straightforward and basic as it gets, which is great for someone like me who is still learning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 7/31/2012

    " Listened to this book on cd...definitely gave me a lot of good info regarding finances and investing and such. Some of it was a bit ahead of me with home buying, etc, but in general, had a lot of great saving ideas. Will prob read/listen to again at some point! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anthony Cox | 5/27/2012

    " Listened to the audio book. It was pretty good. She does a good job of explaining the differences between how the old school thoughts were verses the 90's thoughts versus today's ways of looking at financial decisions (i.e buying a house, saving for retirement, etc.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 3/1/2012
