Good if you want money-saving tips for travel, cable, banking, etc. Some of it was new to me, and some didn't apply. Some kindle excerpts:

www.kayak.com, www.hotwire.com, and www.sidestep.com, along with travel sites like Expedía (www.expedia.com), Orbitz (www.orbitz.com), and Travelocity (www.travelocity.com), can get you competing rates for any model car, on any date, at any location. Once you've got these in hand, you can contact the rental companies themselves, either through their web sites

Emotionally loaded and outdated as expected, with some good advice.

Intended for U.S. audience, but still interesting. Not in the case you think probably. Advice is pure common sense, a lot of small things, not the real fights. For example, instead of learning what rip-offs there exists in credit cards or "payday loans" (our country got this capitalism invention not long ago too), you can probably learn about finance and not to go for any credit cards or loans (or other sh.t you don't really need). Learning something about yourself as human in the world of econo ...more

This a great reference book for how to get the most for your money in any one several different areas of personal finance. There are sections on travel, retirement, banking and utillities among others. Each section has some basics on how to get the best deal, some information on how to resolve problems that might arise, and lists of contact information for complaints and disputes. While it could definitely be improved in some areas, it is a must for personal finance readers because it lays down ...more

Fight for Your Money is one of Bach's weaker books. It's still certainly worth it for people who are looking for systematic ways to spend less, but this reads more like a reference than a personal finance advice guide (like his others). Less pep talk, more systematic info.

Much of the information and advice in this book can be found in Bach's other works; his consistency is a strong point at a time when financial leaders are largely mistrusted, even if it's a bit boring. He emphasizes the role of

This is a great book to get you thinking about your money and, hopefully, how to keep your hands on a little more of it. It's divided up into sections like Buying Cars, Credit Scores, Buying a House, Banking, etc. Every section gets you thinking about common sense ways to avoid unnecessary fees, services you don't need, and how not to get ripped off.

The author is a little extreme in some cases (he mentions skimping on brake inspections and maintenance more than once) but his heart is in the righ

In plain language Bach covers in an encyclopedia-like format automobiles; banking; credit; family matters; health; home; retirement; shopping; taxes; TV and phone; and travel. The reader can read the book from cover to cover, or by subject. Since each section is dense with information, Bach includes action step checklists for the reader's convenience. He also includes sample complaint letters and a list of additional resources.

This book is perfect for a young graduate. While most adults will hav

2.5 stars. I'll admit, I didn't read every single page of this book. It's more of a reference book, covering many topics about how to be aware of and avoid costly financial pitfalls. It touches on a wide variety of subjects: from buying a car to saving for retirement to shopping in online auctions. Sections such as building a remodeling a home don't apply to me, so I didn't read them. The book provides some good information, but nothing earth-shattering.

Recommends it for: Younger people just starting out on their own.
Tip #1, borrow the book from a friend or the library.
The book did have a few good tips, I particularly liked the section on travel, but not enough to warrant the $30 (CDN) pricetag.
Especially disappointing was the fact that the home mortgage section didn't have a discussion on variable vs fixed rate terms.

This book would probably best suit a young person just starting out on their own. Middle aged folks like myself probably already have learned from experience the issues Bach raises.

At first I though it was a poor imitation of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, but Bach does bring a bit of his own to the table. He's much more specific about action steps. If you're interested in this subject, you'll probably find you know 1/2 to 3/4 of what he goes over (credit card interest, nonredeemable rebates, confusing cell phone plans, etc.), but it doesn't hurt to make sure you heard it all.

This is okay as a basic reference book. Written in 2009, it feels very outdated to me, especially the sections on cell phone plans, cable tv and health insurance. A lot of his info I already knew. There were entire chapters that did not pertain to my life: buying a new car (no way!), divorce, tax prep ... I would not recommend.
Jay
The book offers good solid advice on various financial topics, from buying a car to travel to dealing with bank credit and debit cards. In terms of advising you to avoid things that are stupid, for example payday loans, it is excellent. The sections on what to do when things go wrong are good reference material but do not make good reading.

An interesting but basic money book that shows the reader how to avoid extra fees, unnecessary warranties and tips on how to purchase goods (like cars). This would be a useful gift for someone just entering the workforce and just getting started in life. I learned a few things in the "buying a car" section.

So far, have read one chapter (you can skip around), and didn't learn anything new about getting ripped off by 401ks. Mostly , it just talked about management fees.

I'll see if the travel chapters reveal anything insightful.

I've tried reading a lot of personal finance books, but this was the first I was able to finish. I found Bach very readable, and he gave the right amount of information for someone like me who is young and just finished up grad school.

I listened to the audio version of this. Some parts were helpful, some dragged on. But I always enjoy financial books as it reminds me of my goals and keeps it in my mind. Not one of my top finance books, but decent.

A solid intro to a lot of different topics, and Bach makes it very easy to find information on a specific topic. In areas like retirement plans it doesn't go very deep and another book on the subject would be a good idea.

I skimmed this one, but it has a bunch of really good advice. Some of which we currently do, and some of which we need to change. Really good for those starting out in life, or those in need of financial direction.

I enjoy any of Bach's books as he presents finance in an easy to understand format. This book was unique as it takes a look at various aspects of your life and breaks down where you can save money; everything from on the cable bill to buying a new house.

Overall, a good book with a few money-saving ideas. For those that read personal finance books, some of the ideas will be regurgitated versions, but others will be light-bulb inducing.
