Get a financial life : personal finance in your tw...

For twentysomethings and thirtysomethings, controlling one's financial life is a challenge many times exacerbated by a lack of knowledge about how money works. Author Kobliner, herself under 30, has assembled an excellent collection of basic money management principles and has specially tailored this presentation to the particular interests of these age groups. She discusses investing in mutual funds, tax-deferred savings plans, staying away from ATMs, legal tax deductions, understanding the minimal return on bank passbook savings accounts, tearing up credit cards, 401k plans and IRAs, and other important topics. Kobliner, who narrates her own work, emphasizes the personal discipline required to implement these sound suggestions, an example of her keen insights with this targeted audience and her experience as a contributor to Money magazine. This neatly summarized material?short and sweet, just like this age group will want?nicely accompanies such well-known works as The Beardstown Ladies' Common-Sense Investment Guide (Audio Reviews, LJ 4/15/96) and Dave Ramsey's solid Financial Peace (Penguin Audiobooks, 1996). This will be a useful addition to all public libraries.?Dale Farris, Groves, Tex
