Personal finance in a nutshell,
This review is from: Your Money or Your Life: A Practical Guide to Getting - and Staying - on Top of Your Finances: A Practical Guide to Solving Your Financial Problems and Affording a Life You'll Love (Paperback)
This book gives the reader an insight into all aspects of personal finance that the modern person/family might face. It covers everything from mortgages to shares, bonds to bank accounts and investments to pensions. This is a comprehensive guide to all things related to ones income and expenditure.
This is an enjoyable book to read and makes the subject of personal finance fun and enjoyable. If you have seen Alvin's television programme you will know how well he is able to explain in simple terms a complicated subject. The book is written in this clear manner. You will have a good understanding of all the subjects covered once you have read this book.
This book is ideal for anyone wanting to improve their financial future. This book has so much information in it you'd be hard pushed to apply every chapter to your personal circumstances in one go. It should be kept in the bookcase and refered to whenever another financial milestone is reached, or about to be reached.
If you are deeply in debt I'd suggest reading "How to get out of debt, stay out of debt and live prosperously" by Jerrold Mundis first.
