Editorial Reviews

Robert Barker
To me, the best recent entry in the advice-to-minorities genre is The Latino Guide To Personal Money Management (Bloomberg), by Laura Castaneda and Laura Castellanos. It's broad, if not deep--good for anyone taking first steps toward a strong cartera de valores (portfolio).

What People are saying about this

Ray Suarez
Latinos are a dazzlingly diverse people in America at century's end. Depending on migration history, level of education, and family background, the kind of 'money advice' needed is all over the map...from starting a first savings account to high finance. This book successfully straddles a wide range of concerns for a wide range of people, with good humor, flair, and most importantly, without condescension. The information in this book is required ammunition for building a secure future. (Ray Suarez is host of National Public Radio's "Talk of the Nation" and Author, The Old Neighborhood: What We Lost in the Great Suburban Migration
Nely Galan
The key to success for Latinos is economic education. In The Latino Guide to Personal Money Management, Laura Castañeda and Laura Castellanos have transformed financial victimization into empowerment. Their guide is thorough and easy to follow. Who says that learning about money can't be simple and fun?" (Nely Galan is President of Entertainment, Telemundo Network Group)
Raul Yzaguirre
Despite the fact that the Hispanic community is a $350 billion market and growing, very little attention has been paid to educating Latinos on how to manage their money. Clear, accessible, and timely, The Latino Guide to Personal Money Management is a much-needed contribution to closing the financial information gap that exists between Hispanics and other Americans. (Raul Yzaguirre is President, National Council of La Raza)
Arturo Vargas
Por fin! A financial guide for the Latino community that is easy to understand, useful, and relevant. Laura Castañeda and Laura Castellanos have created an invaluable tool toward achieving our next goal: economic empowerment and financial independence. Lealo! (Arturo Vargas is Executive Director, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials)
