Personal Finances Made Simple

Okay, so i don't read a lot of books.  In fact the idea of reading a book sends me running for the hills.  I will come up with 100000000000 other things to do before i pick up a book.  I'm sure i'm not the only one.  I'd venture to guess that a lot of you are the same way.  Why read a book when you could be catching up on your DVR or outside doing something fun or just drinking a beer.  I get it, even though reading in fundamental, it isn't necessarily a lot of fun for most of us.

Needless to say, if i'm recommending a book to you, i do it with this in mind so believe me when i say this is a book worth reading.  It's called The Money Book for the Young Fabulous and Broke and was written by Suze Orman.
You can get a used copy for $.01 on Amazon!

I know you're probably thinking "hey is that the really annoying lady who pops up on cable tv when i'm flipping through the channels to get to the Food Network?"  The answer is yes, but this "annoying lady" really knows what she's talking about when it comes to personal finances and she wrote a really good book about it.

I'm not going to tell you it's a "fast-read" like most people tell you when they're trying to convince you to read a book.  "Read a book?  I'll pass" you think to yourself when someone says that.  It is actually a fast-read though. :-))  And the great thing about the book is that you don't even have to read the whole thing!  You can pick chapters to read that pertain to your specific situation if you'd prefer.  It's almost like a text-book in that regard, but a lot more enjoyable.

The other great thing about this book is it is written for people like us, young, fabulous and broke.  If you are someone who's having difficulty getting your financial house in order, this is the book for you.

It's also a good book for the more financially savvy individuals reading this blog and despite the title isn't just for people who are young, fabulous or broke.  You can be all 3 or none of these and still get a lot out of this gem.

Again, i know how much of a chore reading is and believe me, i feel your pain.  I don't expect most of you will get this book, but if you do, you'll be glad you did.  Who knows, you might be inspired to  pick up another book from my book recommendations after reading this one.   Yeah, i know, probably not gonna happen, but strange things, right?

Take care all!
