Review:

"Tyson, syndicated columnist and bestselling author of Dummies guides to personal finance, investing and mutual funds, provides a solid guide to breaking counterproductive money habits and adopting a healthy approach to personal finance. His first suggestion — assess your money knowledge — is simple for readers to implement, thanks to several handy quizzes that identify the gaps that lead to common mistakes. Tyson offers tips for dealing with procrastination, money avoidance and disorganization, as well as assessing money beliefs and practices. The book's gem is a personal financial action plan that allows easy assessment of current assets and retirement goals. Common sense advice on budgeting strategies, reducing expenditures and taxes, and borrowing and debt management adds up to an effective, if familiar, plan for achieving control over and maximizing financial assets. Chapters on investing, managing risk, insurance and hiring financial help round out this comprehensive approach. This book demystifies the many obstacles — from the logistical to the conceptual — to smart financial planning." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

With more than 5 million books sold, Eric Tyson is one of the top bestselling personal finance authors in the country and has penned five national best-sellers. (He is also the only author to have four of his books simultaneously on Business Week’s business book best-seller list.) His syndicated newspaper column, “Investor’s Guide,” is read by more than 4 million people nationwide. His Personal Finance for Dummies, which was a Wall Street Journal bestseller, won the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Business Book of the Year. Eric’s work has been featured and quoted in hundreds of publications and media outlets, including Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Forbes, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine, Money, Worth, Parenting, USA Today, and on ABC, Fox, PBS Nightly Business Report, CNN, CNBC, and on CBS national radio, NPR’s Marketplace, and Bloomberg Business Radio. He’s also been a featured speaker at a White House conference on retirement planning.

 

Eric is a former management consultant to Fortune 500 financial service firms. In 1990, Eric founded a financial counseling firm that worked exclusively on an hourly basis. In addition to his counseling work, Eric also hoped to make an impact in the writing and media fields. Much of the personal finance writing and reporting he saw and heard was biased, jargon-laden and, in some cases, provided bad advice. In addition to his writing and counseling, Eric also taught the nation’s most highly attended personal financial management course at the University of California. He has spoken at many corporations and nonprofits. His educational background includes having earned his bachelor’s degree in economics at Yale and an MBA at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
