Should be required for all Americans June 29, 2014
"Few people in this country have a firm grasp of their own finances-- an unfortunate result of personal finance's exclusion from middle schools & high schools across the map. Personal Finance attempts to guide the reader through managing their own finances, from how to account for their money to understanding opportunity costs of how they use it. Created for those any sort of person, there is no better time to take hold of your finances than now, and this book attempts to teach the reader what should be far more readily accessible. As a country, we should be teaching everyone who to avoid unnecessary debt and have their money work for them-- Personal Finance attempts to create a basis for financial independence and a life free of worry."
