Review:

"In this back-to-basics personal finance guide from the host of the 'Money Girl' blog and podcast on the Quick and Dirty Tips network, Adams walks her readers through the ins and outs of money sanity and practical solvency, while helping them create a richer life--both financially and emotionally. She addresses major money issues and strategies, such as changing your money mindset by addressing overspending and its psychological roots, and understanding investing concepts and mortgages; she also offers help with creating a financial plan, comparing banks, utilizing online financial tools, paying for education, saving more money, and planning for retirement. Adams's peppy tone and highly organized, sensible advice deliver a clear-cut plan for financial literacy. Though there's not much new, the Money Girl brand is powerful and should find an appreciative audience. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Definitely a great book if you're looking to get your finances in line, and aren't quite sure where to start. I was hoping for something beyond the basics, and I did learn a lot from the chapters on things I'm not terribly familiar with, like investments. Not the best book for my needs right now, but I'd highly recommend it for recent college grads, or anyone else who wants to get a handle on their finances.
