    Very readable book for anyone who wants to get their financial house in order

    Ric's book is very readable and insightful. I almost wish that it the lessons it contains were taught in High School. Ric demystifies money management and inspires people to take control of their financial future

    Informative, humorous, and helpful.

    The Truth about Money covers the prerequisite fundamentals for financial intelligence. It delivers the information in a clear concise fashion, and uses real-life examples to further explicate the matter. Highly recommended for those who want to better understand the financial world and create a foundation for future investments.

    Says it like it is!

    For several years, I've been weeding through financial books to get different 'professional' opinions and thoughts on money and how to manage assets. If you went to the personal finance section of a bookstore, you'll see dozens if not hundreds of titles. This book is the ONLY book you need- period! Read everything else, then buy this book. All of your necessary questions are answered. I like a guy who says WHY to do what he tells you, and what to expect if you don't follow his advice. I like all of Ric's stuff, but this is the true original, and is the only book you'll need.

    Must have Reference

    This book is fantastic. It is comprehensive for the average person who needs to know about crucial areas in personal finance. The author covers everything, and not only on a superficial level, but quite a bit in depth. One aspect that I really appreciate is that he doesn't just say, 'This is good, but this is bad', he really takes the time to explain how certain market forces work, as a working background, then says, 'And that is why this is good' - and in that way enables the reader to be able to analyze certain investments, not just memorize specifics. For instance, his section on explaining bonds was really eye-opening. Finally, he does all of this in a very conversational manner, so you don't get bored like other techincally oriented books might induce. This is a must-own, mini-finance dictionary for the person who is asking, 'How do I start understanding all this finance stuff?'

    The bible of Personal Money Management

    I first read this book in 1996. It is the definitive work on Personal Finance. I have read all the new editions which are written to keep the information current. One would expect a book on this topic to be dry and boring but this author has a breezy style that uses many anecdotes and analogies which makes it fun to read! My favorite is the story of Jack and Jill and compounding interest! This book has been so helpful that I present it to all the young people in my life upon the graduation from school. It covers everything from retirement planning to estate planning, getting out of debt to investing and home mortgages. I am here today to buy one for a nephew who is embarking on his adult life. The book served me so well, I now listen to Mr. Edelman's weekly radio show and hired his firm to provide financial planning guidance for me and my wife.

    Easy to read and understand - comprehesive

    I read this book from the library and then decided to buy it so I could have it available to discuss the wide range of financial areas covered with my college age children.
