This book has a "finance for dummies" feel to it, with the many shaded boxes, bullet points, quotes, check lists (some of them silly), and constant repetitive summarizing. It is, however, easy to understand and highly comprehensive, except in the one area I most wanted detail – investment terminology. It covers every stage and walk of life, and, because of this, any reader will likely want to skim several sections. Perhaps only one-fourth of the book was actually applicable to me at this point, ...more

Grow Your Money: 101 easy tips to plan save and invest by Jonathan D. Pond

Money. It seems to me that every subject in the world is more readily discussed; every subject except money. It is only a unit of exchange, nothing more or less. At the moment (as I watch stocks plummet and the dollar take a nose dive) I did NOT want to join those who are panicking over the current state of the financial world, so I thought I would check this book out from our library, which, as the title indicates, could

Solid all-around. Good, conservative personal finance tips without being vague or stating the obvious (like how some books devote chapters to not buying $5 coffees). I usually turn these types of books into Goodwill or swap them at a used bookstore, but I'm going to keep this one around. I like the format and will be using it for easy reference. The advice given here is timeless enough that, despite being written at the height of the economic crisis, there was nothing that screamed for an update ...more

(Non-Fiction, Personal Finance) This book was my favorite financial book I read the past couple of months. Pond offers 101 easy tips and ideas to plan, save, and invest. I was pleasantly surprised by the simplicity of his language and advice. I put so many post-its in my library copy, that I purchased the book tonight. With its simple strategies, savvy advice, helpful charts, and links to websites on Pond's website, this is a book I will be referring to a lot in the upcoming years. Highly recomm ...more

Very solid personal finance book which is all about getting rich slowly. Most of the information here is pretty familiar to me since I've been following some PF blogs for the last six months or so, but I imagine this would not be a bad starting point for beginners.

basic money 101 information: benefits of compounded interest, investment strategies, own real estate, etc. i was expecting to feel really motivated after this one. suze would still be my first choice: The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke.

A little retirement-heavy for me, but still a very nice overview of the basics of investment and financial planning - or so it seems to me. Keep in mind, though, that up 'til now everything I knew about money management I learned from StarCraft. ;-)

Really liked this book. It presents what can be a dry topic with humor and readability. Good tips too.

Very useful info, presented in a way that is easily grasped by the reader. I read this as a library book and then bought my own copy. One of me 'core books' on money, personal finance.
