Overview

The main feature of Personal Finance is its hands-on approach keyed to the concepts readers need to build their own financial plans. The text’s six parts are all pieces of a financial plan; Chapter 22 is the capstone. A running example throughout the book and a variety of end-of-chapter cases reinforce the practical aspects of planning.
