A Hands-On Approach to Financial Planning
The main feature of Personal Finance is its hands-on approach keyed to the concepts readers need to build their own financial plans. The text’s seven parts are all pieces of a financial plan; Chapter 21 is the capstone. A running example throughout the book and a variety of end-of-chapter cases reinforce the practical aspects of planning.
The Sixth Edition is fully updated with recent financial trends, such as lower interest rates, changing salaries, and rules for credit card use. With case studies and workable examples throughout, this book is an active tool readers can use to become comfortable managing their finances into the future.
