The Wall Street Journa. Shelves: personal-finance. I bought this book back when I was in my 20s. Although there was much that I already knew, there were some areas that I needed brushing up on. This guide was quick, to the point, very easy to understand, fun to read, and it provided some eye candy to boot. Now I've outgrown this book. Despite this, however, I continue to hang on to this book. Although there are some things that are a bit dated (explanations of ATMs, which were relatively new back in the early 90s), it's still a pretty good prime I bought this book back when I was in my 20s. Morris and Virginia B. Morris update this now classic handbook to the fundamental principles that govern personal financial management. by Alan H. Siegel and Kenneth M. Morris.

I bought this for my significantly younger cousin about 8 years ago, when he expressed a desire to learn about personal finance and investing. Well, he might have actually been looking to get some "seed money" from me, but I figured that even if he didn't have any money at the time, by reading this book at least he would know what to do with it if he ever wound up getting some. In retrospect, perhaps the first book he should have had was one which taught that earning money through some form of lucrative employment is how the whole process begins.

Well, I don't know how it worked for him in the end, but I DO know that the copy I had bought for myself nearly 10 years prior to that gift giving event provided me with a lot of knowledge as well as some useful information. So there you have it - I liked this book so much that I wound up buying it twice.

I've just graduated from college and wanted to learn how to not be poor anymore. I bought this book because I knew about Wall Street Journal's reputation for expertise and in-depth analysis of the economy etc. What I didn't expect was a book equivalent to a children's primer on personal finance. It's not bad, per se, it's just not what I expected from the Wall Street Journal.
The book covers a broad range of topics from paper money to mortgages to stocks and bonds. Unfortunately, the coverage is shallow, mostly giving definitions of what things are. The book consists of teen magazine-like layouts of pictures, graphs, and diagrams. Some of the information is helpful while some of it is interesting but trivial, and all of it is in colorful, bite-sized portions. While it's entertaining and easy-to-understand, it's also quite "fluff"-y at times.
It's a good introduction to personal finance for someone who doesn't know much about how money works beyond how to buy things. It may be ok for new high school or college grads, either as a reference or a first book on personal finance but it's not at the level for anyone who actually wants to start investing and already knows the basics. Ironically, it seems to be below the level of Wall Street Journal readers. I have since given my copy away. For someone who already knows the basics but wants a introduction to investing, I enjoyed "The First Book of Investing: The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Building Wealth Safely" by Samuel Case. It's the only other book on investing I've read (I bought it on sale on a whim), but it was clear and informative, albeit a little optimistic.

It is hard to understand the intracacies of how our basic banking system works. This book presents in a very easy to understand language, with picture diagrams how everything works. This book should be read by everyone who does not understand how banking, loans, credit cards, checks, work...along with how the transaction flows through the system. Must read for those who want to understand investing and the US stock market. Great for foreign nationals who will live/work in the US. Great for those living in poverty areas of US states and cities. Learning how our system functions is important for everyone living in the US.

I just moved into the United States and wanted to know how do personal savings, the bank, financial planning, housing, taxes, retirement etc...

This book gives a very consolidated overview will all the nitty-gritty about how personal finance should & is handled in United States. Recommended to anyone new to the US or just off schools entering the REAL WORLD. Also gets you acquainted with the local financial terms.
