Wealthy Barber: Everyone's Common-Sense Guide to Becoming Financially Independent

Wealthy Barber: Everyone's Common-Sense Guide to Becoming Financially Independent Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

" . . . quite simply the best financial self-help book."

--Money Book Club, Book-of-the-Month Club

In this new and updated edition of one of the biggest-selling financial-planning books ever, David Chilton simplifies the complex puzzles of personal finance and helps you achieve financial independence. With the help of his fictional barber, Roy, and a large dose of humor, Chilton shows you how to take control of your financial future--slowly, steadily, and with sure success. Chilton's plan (detailed in an entertaining story) is no get-rich-quick scheme, but it does make financial independence possible on nothing more than an average salary.

This third edition has been updated with assistance from the Arthur Andersen Corporation, and covers the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 and other recent developments.

Even if you consider yourself a financial "basket case," Chilton explains how you can easily put an effective financial plan into action.

Book News Annotation:

Based on a two-year qualitative study, the volume explores the nature of dementia within a family context when one member of the family has been diagnosed as having the disease. It introduces three theoretical perspectives on family caregiving: the family stress perspective, the symbolic interactionist perspective, and family systems-- focusing on how the family changes in response to the different phases of the illness. The final chapters investigate how families manage what is happening to them, divided into two systems, open and closed managing styles, and including 10 case studies with additional suggestions for future directions in long-term care policy. The appendices provide demographic profiles, and visual "gestalts" of open and closed style families.
