Should I Buy This Book? Review: Money Made Simple

I’m going to start off by saying this is a pretty good book for those just starting out learning about personal finance. It’s basically a question and answer book.

It goes over basic questions from budgeting to estate planning and breaks it up into 9 different chapters.

At the beginning of each chapter it goes over basic questions but as the chapter progresses so do the questions that it answers.

It does a great job of going into those advanced questions and answering them with simplistic answers so that it’s easy to understand.

The Negative

It’s really only a negative now because it’s 6 years old and some of the laws for a couple of things have changed. So some things are outdated. but 99% of the book is timeless information.

The Positive

It’s in question and answer format so it’s pretty straight forward and easy stopping points.It does a great job of covering all of the topics thoroughly without getting boring.

Would I Buy This Book?

I probably wouldn’t. However, if you’re not that well versed in the internet or would like a one stop spot that has a lot of your financial questions answered, then this book is for you. I say that because if you looked on sites like yahoo answers, but if you don’t know what questions to ask this book can help you.
