Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Most people barely scratch the surface of their software -- especially folks who use contemporary personal finance software, like Quicken 2002. That's a shame, because there's so much useful stuff lying just below the surface. Quicken 2002's full of tools that can help you make more money, keep more of it, and (maybe even more important), save you oodles of time. The best way to put these tools to work for you is to get Quicken 2002: The Official Guide.

Maria Langer combines a clear, companionable writing style, the accuracy of a trained accountant, and strong instincts about what's important to typical Quicken users. She's written a book that will help Quicken beginners get up-to-speed quickly, but is also full of nuggets for advanced users. Like the Capital Gains Estimator, which can help you figure out the tax implications before you sell that stock. And Paycheck Setup, which records your paychecks automatically. And Quicken's tools for finding potential Schedule A deductions. And Quicken.com's Web-based portfolio tracking.

Langer closes with a systematic program for using Quicken to help build your net worth. Follow it -- and prosper. (Bill Camarda)
