In print for more than 20 years, this classic personal finance reference, updated to take into account ongoing changes in the financial world, is a must-have for anyone who wants to manage their money more effectively. As Andrew Tobias notes in his introduction, this book wasn't written for people who want to get rich quickly -- the advice presented here is smart, commonsensical, and designed for those who are courting long-term success. Some of Tobias's recommendations will sound familiar and comfortable -- pay off your credit cards on time, conserve energy, do research online before you buy, save money whenever you can -- while others, like his belief that you should trust no one when it comes to your money, come across as somewhat more hard-nosed; however, they are all worth reading about and, more important, putting into practice.
Newsweek
Old Favorite: This book is back again...Tobias remains the funniest of financial writers.
New York Times Book Review
What Tobias has to say is as rational as a pocket calculator.
Library Journal
You've probably got the original it was a million-copy best seller so here's a revised version covering new laws and the joys of the Internet. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
BookList
Irreverent (and sometimes flip) and entertaining, Tobias serves up his tips with iconoclastic common sense.

We needed a place to start. It definatly gave us good ideas and suggestions. It gave us avenues to begain and carry through. Out of the three other books we baught at the same time, this one was the most help.

I have read this book four or five times. I get something new out of it every time. The writing is clear and relatively easy to understand, even for folks with a limited understanding of finance and investments. I am a retired CPA. I have read hundreds of books on accounting, finance, economics, and investing. This is the one book that I recommend for a beginner who wants to get his or her financial house in order and begin to lay out a plan to accumulate significant personal wealth.

I'm especially leary of finance books, and have learned that the best way to select books is to read a chapter or two at the book store before you buy. Three chapters into the book, the store closed, so I took it home with me and read it in two days. Tobias very clearly explains a number of issues that most people are simply unaware of, and makes it entertaining along the way. After I finished the book I was moved enough to check his web site and drop him a line. This book will make my XMAS shopping very easy this year.

Could eliminate all sections on puts, calls and other fancy investment tools and just say if you don't understand don't bother. Frugal list could be just a list not long explanations. Important sights could be a list. Alot of this book is capable of shorter summaries.
