A bit of a different philosophy on money
I tend to listen to or read a book in money/finances every month or so.
There were a lot of practical points that I enjoyed about this book. I think my main hangup is that the author depends on debt far too much. I am not as extreme as Dave Ramsey on the subject, but debt does not have to be as much of a factor in our lives as Weston allows for.
For instance, she says it is a good idea to have one's house paid for before retiring. My first thought was "no duh Liz!" Maybe a better goal is to have your house paid for before you are 40! Her point of course, is that you get a low cost loan with a mortage and can invest your money elsewhere. I prefer not to play the bow to the FICO score game, but to each his/her own.

Should be Taught in Schools
Would you listen to The 10 Commandments of Money again? Why?
Yes, it's worth listening to a second time to be sure that none of the information slips through the cracks. It's all common sense.
