“Offers solid information and advice.... Recommended.”  Video Librarian


“A nicely paced primer on concepts and terminology in personal finance, as well as providing a healthy dose of advice and guidance in terms of spending, goal setting, personal conduct, and financial strategies.... The content is extremely well organized and the chapter navigation serves the learner beautifully. The explanations of financial terms and concepts are done exceptionally well, with practical examples and limited use of advanced jargon. Highly recommended.”  Educational Media Reviews Online
