For previous generations, living within your means was a simple formula. Now, with the staggering rise in health-care, medical, and housing costs, millions of people find themselves skating from paycheck to paycheck with no idea how to move forward.
As the most widely read personal-finance columnist on the Internet, Liz Weston has heard the questions and has the answers. This book will help listeners avoid critical mistakes, survive the bad times, and thrive in the good ones. Pointers include how to balance your budget, pay down debt, pay for college, save for retirement, and more.
Liz Weston’s goal is to provide the practical guide to the brave new world of money. What Sylvia Porter’s Money Book was to the 1970s, The 10 Commandments of Money will be for the 2010s.
“This book is money manna from heaven, and Liz Weston is the financial sage of our times. She’s revised the tired truths about finances and offers up smart, timely advice on paying off debt, investing for retirement, setting up a real-world budget for years to come, and more. I’d follow her anywhere!” (Beth Kobliner, author of Get a Financial Life)
“Financial columnist Weston provides a workable happy medium between fear and fecklessness…Loaded with tips and ideas and illustrated with plenty of examples, this book hits all the major themes for total financial literacy in a conversational, digestible tone…A godsend for the financially befuddled, bewildered, or just plain anxious.” (Publishers Weekly)
