The 250 Personal Finance Questions You Should Ask in Your 20s and 30s by Debby Fowles

Personal finance problems like college loans, credit card debt, and badly planned "budgets" have helped identify young adults these days as "Generation Debt." Written in an easy-to-read, accessible Q&A format, this comprehensive book acts as a financial advisor for folks who are just starting out on their own.

You will get the basics of money management as you learn how to: make a budget and stick to it; build an emergency fund; get out of debt as easily and quickly as possible; splurge—the smart way; and more. Saving young adults from feeling like they're facing impossible odds, this book will explain, ease, and eliminate your worst financial fears.

Steers more towards early 20's (or 30's if you've been living in moms basement and taking the city bus, i guess). Great advice for anyone just starting out on thie rown - very well rounded, from cars, to going to going out, to 1st apartment or buying a first home.
