Format: Hardcover
Just when you want to be careful with money, along come confusing life choices: buying a car, renting a house, investing in the market, obtaining life insurance, and so on. Happily, MoneyWatch's Jack Otter provides superior advice. He lays out a series of either-or spending choices and explains the pluses and minuses of your options. getAbstract - which does not give financial advice, other than suggesting due diligence in light of your own situation - recommends Otter's savvy mini-essays on financial choices and his nicely illustrated pro-and-con presentation. If you seek clear-headed spending advice in a pretty package, you will appreciate his authoritative, easy-to-understand comparisons. On the other hand, if you find jazzy pages overflowing with big pictures laced with short doses of advice way too distracting, you may think this illustrated manual is a bit over-the-top visually. However, for the inexperienced young person or the financially daunted, the popular packaging may just open the door to sound fiscal counsel.

Worth it....Not Worth It delivers a huge return on two of our most valuable assets: time and money.
The format requires very little of the former. Otter aims for brevity over War and Peace length explanations. You've got questions about personal finance? Otter's got the answers, fast and sweet, but with just enough explanation to give you confidence he knows what the heck he's talking about. It's also a fun read, which should qualify it for some special award given how dry personal finance can be. And as for the money angle...Well, I haven't done the math, but conservatively I bet following just half the advice in this book could save you more than six figures over your lifetime. Worth it Not Worth It is worth it for anyone looking to get on top of their financial life. But it strikes me as especially spot on for any recent college grad you might know: Start out in the real world with Otter showing you the way on the money front and you're gonna be just fine.

The perfect money book for ANY age - and a great graduation present! 9 May 2012
By Lela Bellows Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is the essential 'CLEAR UP MY QUESTIONS', and confusion about so many money issues. I am 46 and finding it is entirely relevant on many levels, but I'm also ordering extra copies for a slew of high school and college graduates because they need to get their head around these issues while they're young. The book is simple, straightforward, and really gives good advice about so many things in your life that relate to money. By taking out the overwhelming detail out it's one you will want to read in one sitting.

Interesting Material But ... 9 Aug. 2012
By Carlos A. Janada - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book offers a variety of interesting tips and is worthy of reading it. However, it appears that the book was printed in a rush or under a very tight budget such that several pages have been cut-off at the beginning of the sentences and as a result it is sometimes hard to understand what the book is saying (since we're missing the first few words of each sentence in several pages).
