Review by calmclam
This book does a pretty good job covering the basics for people in their twenties and thirties. I wouldn't recommend it for someone with more than a basic knowledge of personal finance (if you contribute to your retirement account, are paying down your debt, aren't taking any more on, and are saving monthly, you're probably not going to get much out of this book), but for someone just starting out I think it would be really useful.
