Real answers Oct 9, 2004
Over the last few years there has been an influx of financial self-help books on the market. Most of the books are speaking to people's woes over rising prices and a shaky economic environment. 101 REAL MONEY QUESTIONS joins a growing army of these sorts of books, but author Jesse Brown brings freshness to this arena and approaches a difficult topic in an easy and understandable manner.
In 101 REAL MONEY QUESTIONS, Brown sets up a dialogue between himself and countless people with financial concerns and answers some basic and not so basic questions on creating a sound financial foundation. His focus is primarily on planning for the future via answering questions about retirement, IRAs, estate planning as well as a plethora of other related topics. His directives are written plainly without the overwhelming jargon that usually accompanies discussions on portfolios and the like.
While the book was written in plain kind English minus the usual jargon, I found myself a becoming a little frustrated over the absence of certain information. The book is written from a point of view where the seeker of the data already has knowledge of financial strategies as well as a financial base to start from. I was looking for really practical common sense information on how to get started. He talks about establishing a cash reserve, but how do you truly do that when you are living from paycheck to paycheck? How do you pay for insurance when you are living in an economy where rent and basic living expenses are eating up the limited cash flow that you have?
101 REAL MONEY QUESTIONS answers many questions on building wealth once you are on relatively stable ground. I think this book would be really helpful to folks who have started to plan for their future in some way. However, I think a more comprehensive guide is needed for people who are starting from square one.
