Overview

Stop working for your money—and put your money to work for you!

Tens of thousands of readers trust Dan Solin’s advice when it comes to investing, managing their portfolios and their 401(k)s, and planning for retirement. Now Solin offers the smartest guide to money management and financial planning yet.

From managing your debt, maximizing savings, and making smart decisions about home ownership (or not) to insurance, investing, and retirement, The Smartest Money Book You’ll Ever Read will be your guide to financial independence for a lifetime—and beyond.

Written in the same no-nonsense style as his previous bestsellers, The Smartest Money Book You’ll Ever Read breaks financial planning and money management into bite-size pieces—with immediately actionable advice. Covering the key tasks in every area of personal finance, Solin shows you how to:

• Analyze your money problems and get motivated to solve them
• Get out of debt fast, and draw up a budget you can live on—and live with
• Blow off useless commission-based advisors and learn to take control of your own financial future
• Buy the health/life/disability/auto insurance you need—and only what you need
• Invest so that—finally—your money works for you, not someone else

Step by simple step, this is advice that you can actually understand and follow. You can avoid debt-addiction and other financial hazards, as well as learn to harness the power of the web to put your money to work.

The Smartest Money Book You’ll Ever Read is recommended by Mint.com, the world’s largest free online financial planning site, for use by its members. However, all of the advice in this book is readily accessible to all readers.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Solin (The Smartest Investment Book You'll Ever Read) adds another book to his series, this one designed to teach readers about "growing, spending, and enjoying your money." Short chapters that conclude with a one-sentence "What's the Point?" summary cover, in a simple, no-nonsense style, areas of personal finance ranging from home buying and insurance to retirement planning and investing, with a focus on do-it-yourself planning and money management. While Solin favors a hands-off approach when it comes to investing, he recommends using fee-only advisers to assist with the more complicated financial decisions. The glossary will serve as an invaluable resource for novices attempting to understand the complexities of personal finance. VERDICT This compact book doesn't have the depth of such personal-finance guides as Jane Bryant Quinn's Making the Most of Your Money Now, but the short chapters are an adequate introduction to money management. The tie-in to mint.com, a free online financial planning site, makes Solin's ideas immediately practicable.—Elizabeth Nelson, UOP Lib., Des Plaines, IL

This is a good book for beginners who need to get a handle on investing. More people are having to prepare for retirement without pensions. This book will give them a blueprint to follow that is easy to understand and it provides incentive to use the information.  It would be helpful to follow up with some of his other books. I highly recommend reading this book before you visit a financial planner.
