    simple, but not simplistic

    Simple, but not simplistic, August 25, 2010

    This review is from: Money Sucks! Money Strategies for Real Life (Paperback)
    This book was simple for me - a confirmed math phobic - yet not simplistic. Oh yes, I knew some of the information just because I've lived to be 63, but did I understand it? Not until after I read Ms. Gordon's book. I especially like that the reader is not treated as some simpleton who just can't understand unless the most simplistic explanations are employed. I enjoyed the author's slightly ironic sense of humor, too. It made it easier to deal with all those numbers. While the book is marketed to those just starting out to be financially responsible, I'd recommend it to those of us who don't really understand why we do what we do with our money, although we know it works.

    great book on a subject everyone needs to understand

    Money Sucks! Money Strategies for Real Life is a great little book on a topic that everyone has to understand. It’s a “must read” for young people starting out on their own, and it’s a helpful refresher for adults like myself who grew up with one axiom about money: make more than you spend. I really like that the book is short, to the point, and pertinent to everyone. Cartoons and a straightforward, witty writing style make it a fun, fast read.

    Regardless of age or income, we all deal with money in one way or another. Why not get it right and have a strategy for handling it well? In this book, Miryam Gordon covers the gamut, from budgeting, to keeping track of your money, to credit, to shopping tips, to avoiding ID theft. She offers an understanding of basic personal finance—a “must have” for the good life at any income level.

    I Also Recommend:

    Young and Broke? Read this book.

    Who teaches young people to manage money? Obviously, from this nations credit debt, nobody. Even if taught, money sense is ignored. If you want something, save for it, she says. You know what you spend because you write it down - all of it. You have a budget and know what you have at all times. Research before you buy, both the costs and reviews on the product. She explains how to do this in basic terms that anyone will understand. Geared to the person starting out, the book contains valuable information. It's a short, quick read intended for today's short attention spans.

    Good student gift

    This book is an excellent graduation gift for young people getting ready to enter the "real world" whether from high school or college. It is well-organized and covers a variety of essential money-related topics in a brief and succinct manner. A lot of books on finance are long and involved; this one gives a quick, to the point summary of topics young people need to consider to get themselves out the door on the right footing. It covers how to budget, taxes, paperwork required for that first job, how credit scores work, how to avoid bankruptcy (but what to do if you get into debt trouble without being condemning), how to use credit cards responsibly, how to shop in a way to save money, tracking your money, protecting your personal information--in other words, a great beginner's primer on a variety of topics. Short enough not to be intimidating to a busy person (or with a short attention span) with good, bold headings to readily identify the various topics. Also easy to read type and illustrations, and a fun cover a guy shouldn't be embarrassed to be seen with.
