Very easy to read book explaining basic finances and common financial institutions/terms (ie; types of bank accounts, investments, insurance, etc)
Hard to follow the explanation on stocks, which dominated a lot of the book - however, I’ve always had a hard time with that subject, so could just be me. Overall a useful first book to understanding some of the basic financial concepts you are likely to run into over your lifetime

This book provides an easy to read survey of personal finance. What it lacks in depth it somewhat makes up for in readability. If you don't understand anything about money but how to spend it, then this may be a good introduction to the broad topic.

I purchased this book to give to my young adult boys. I had the earlier version that was very graphic and visually interesting. While this book has the same updated information, it's all just text now. I returned the book because I know a "textbook" is not going to be too inspiring for them to get involved with. Sadly, the early version was much more user friendly and inviting.

This is a great book for anyone looking for an easy read with a lot of valuable information. I appreciate a book that tackles personal finance without much complex financial jargon. I'm a layman who is happy to have read this book.

Great for the nuts and bolts of so many real life issues that we face. It recently worked as a great reference when I was studying up on the most importance aspects to consider when purchasing a home. This is a good one to have in your home library!

If you're looking for a book covering all the basics of understanding personal finance, this is it. Jeff Opdyke, a financial reporter for the Wall Street Journal, brings us a short read that encompasses everything the average person cares about: taxes, insurance, retirement planning, budgeting, borrowing, and banking. If you can honestly admit to yourself that you don't have as thorough an understanding of personal finance as you should, then this is a great introduction.

The "Complete Personal Finance Guidebook" covers some aspects of basic finance that you may never have known or thought of. For example, which type of account should you stash your emergency fund in: a savings account or a money-market account? Isn't a money-market account risky? Not necessarily. Both funds are considered extremely safe, and are both insured by the FDIC. However, money-market accounts will earn you a higher interest rate on your emergency fund, and will be penalty-free as long as you meet minimum balances and don't touch the money often (which you shouldn't if it were truly an emergency fund).

Mr. Opdyke covers basic financial rules you thought you already knew. Think you have a perfect credit report? Have you checked lately? A report by the Federal Trade Commission found that 25% of all credit reports contain errors. A 2003 amendment called the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act allows you to check your credit report free of charge once a year. Furthermore, the credit-reporting agencies are required by law to correct errors you find. If you want to be responsible about your finances, you need to take advantage of your credit report and find errors to avoid credit-related problems down the road.

A large portion of the book is dedicated to investing. This includes everything from how stocks and bonds work, what the market indices track, how to invest in college, and--probably most significant--how to invest for retirement. 401(k)s, IRAs, Roth IRAs, and all the basics of retirement investing are here in plain English.

Finally, Mr. Opdyke dedicates chapters to insurance and taxes. The insurance section is a great introduction to all the types of insurance most people care about like auto, home, and medical. The taxes section is extremely brief, and you will need to go outside of this book to learn more about how taxes work. Taxes is an extremely complicated subject, and this book only provides the most basic introduction.

The only downside to this book is the outdated numbers. New tax laws have taken effect since this book was published, inflation has created new caps for annual IRA and 401(k) contributions, and new tax brackets have been created. Whenever Mr. Opdyke mentions a specific number for something, it's probably best to verify it online to see if it has changed.

If you're tired of living in ignorance when it comes to finances, this book is smarter than any other investment I can think of. Invest in this book, and you will come out more improved and responsible over your finances, guaranteed.

One of my friend recommended this book. In a week I finished the book. As the book states, it does not come with some super ideas (hard or impossible to implement), instead it gives some helpful hints on many different subjects.
Especially after reading about "Debts" (bad debts), I reconsidered my credit cards and paid (not closed) 2 of them right away, I noticed I was paying huge amount of interest. The book paid itself in the first couple days.
And of course my 410K: I will try to invest more in that one, the facts about pre-tax issues were very helpful.
This book is an excellent source of information about everything related to managing your personal finance. Without getting in too many details, the author covers whatever is required to know in order to build a foundation about personal finance: debit, credit, investing, planning, insurance and taxes.
Recommended to people who never thought about their financial future.
