On My Own Two Feet: A Modern Girl’s Guide to Personal Finance

9781598691245, Adams Media Corporation, $12.95
On My Own Two Feet is knock-your-socks, stockings, or stiletto high heels -off enjoyable! This book is amazing for what it accomplishes without making you feel like a complete moron for not knowing it in the first place, and building you up so you believe you can actually be financially savvy. I realize I may be one of the only people in the world who thinks learning about financial planning is fun, but this book makes everything having to do with money so easy to understand, it’s actually not scary! That’s probably one of the best ways to recommend this book. Everything is dealt with so matter-of-factly, there’s no chance to be scared. Things you sort of knew about, things you sort of heard about, and things that haven’t yet crossed your mind are all addressed in a comprehensive, yet not overloading, fashion. The first part of the book is all the basic stuff – budget, what you should be saving for, and how to go about doing that. The second part of the books delves a little deeper into things like investments. A very good introduction for any woman 18-118.

  1. Found you from The Hop :)I have read this a couple of years ago and found it easy to read as well – a good book to get started! I am in the middle of reading A Purse of Your Own which I found useful so far, though I haven't finished. While I don't have a big interest in Finance (hated that class in college!) I do want to learn more about financial planning for ourselves!

Love O'Hare for its yoga room; love Raleigh for its bookstore. Anyone read Marilyn Johnson? I'm hoping to read more non-fiction in 2017!
