    Amazingly Easy to Understand

    I have read a few financial books before, but found them hard to impliment. This book was different. It was conversational - almost as if the author were speaking directly to me. It is as the title suggests, a way to build wealth. I think I can do this.

    finance made easy

    Easy, to understand difficult subjects such as mutual funds, insurance, etc. Easy suggestions on how to put ones financial house in order. Loved stories of other people stuggling to make ends meet. Enjoyed Mr. Petillo's sense of humor.
