In a time of great financial uncertainty, this is the book everyone must read. The bottom line: Money is simple—people make it complicated. Now, bestselling personal finance author Jean Chatzky has distilled this simplicity into a smart, immediate, and entertaining set of rules that will change your financial life.
She removes the stress associated with all things money and says it clearly: Follow these basic yet crucial approaches to spending, saving, investing, increasing your income, and most importantly, protecting what you have, and you will build the wealth and financial stability you’ve been dreaming of. Chatzky’s advice is reassuring, straightforward and often counter-intuitive, including:
-Know what your time is worth.
-If you’re trying not to spend money, carry big bills.
-Good debt is cheaper.
-Date your stocks; don’t marry them.
-"Free" inevitably costs money.
Written in her trademark warm, witty voice, and with a special "Do’s and Don’ts" section, this is the only book you really need to achieve true financial health and happiness.
