This book was given to me as a Christmas present by one of my good friends. I actually think he gave it to me as a joke because he thinks I'm cheap. Little does he know the amount of intrinsic value this book contains. I chose to read this book and review it as an assignment for an economics class, and I was pleasantly surprised how much the book related directly to what I'd been learning in class. For example, it displayed and explained diagrams of budget sheets to account for different items you'll be spending on so you can plan ahead know how much money you will be spending. The budget sheets stressed types of income; gross, take home, and available. The book also covered the topics of opportunity cost and marginal utility, discussing how to deal with necessities and luxuries. I found the information concerning credit payment and interest very enlightening as well as the section explaining steps and tips on how to make big purchases. I especially enjoyed the information the book contained for the college bound, such as how to anticipate a rise in tuition and living costs. Oh yes, how could I forget, I enjoyed this book because it explained terms and processes simply, without dumbing it down too much and still not flying miles over my head. I would recommend this book for anyone who is like me and doesn't like to waste money and is also interested in using this information for their advantage.
